Lord Of The Rings TV Show Casts Young Galadriel
Morfydd Clark joins the cast.
Amazon's big-budget Lord of the Rings TV show has cast another one of its lead roles. According to Variety, His Dark Materials star Morfydd Clark has signed on to play a young Galadriel.
Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett played an older Galadriel in the Peter Jackson-directed Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies.
Clark is also known for her roles on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Crawl. In 2020, she will star in the BBC's Dracula minisieres and The Personal History of David Copperfield with Dev Patel.
Clark is just the latest to join Amazon's Lord of the Rings show. Other actors that will reportedly feature in the program include Maxim Baldry, Joseph Mawle, Markella Kavenagh, and Ema Horvath. Will Poulter, who starred in the Maze Runner series and Netflix's Bandersnatch, was lined up for a role before exiting the project. Amazon has yet to officially confirm any casting details for the show, however.
Production on the untitled Lord of the Rings show is currently underway in New Zealand. According to reports, Amazon is pausing production of the Lord of the Rings TV show in New Zealand for about 4-5 months to give the writing team time to map out the recently announced Season 2.
The new Lord of the Rings show is being written by JD Payne and Patrick McKay, with former Game of Thrones series producer Bryan Cogman also joining the team. Jurassic World: Forbidden Kingdom director JA Bayona is set to direct the first two episodes of Season 1.
The Amazon show is set in the Second Age, but plot details are being kept under wraps for now. The Second Age was when the Elven city of Rivendell was developed, and when the first battle where men, elves, and dwarves fought together for the first time against Sauron.
