Comments

It may have already been renewed for Season 2, but there still isn't a lot known about Amazon's upcoming Lord of the Rings series, until now. A massive cast list was revealed for this ensemble show, featuring actors from Game of Thrones, Ray Donovan, and more.

During the Amazon presentation at the TCA winter press tour, the company discussed the upcoming Lord of the Rings series and who will star on the fantasy-adventure show. Previously, a few of the cast members had been confirmed and many more were rumored, like Morfydd Clark playing a young Galadriel.

"After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon's The Lord of the Rings series," explained showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay in a press release. "These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide."

Below, you'll find everyone revealed at the presentation. Only the actors names were listed during the event, so at this time, we do not know who some of them are playing on the Amazon series.

Amazon's Lord of the Rings cast:

  • Roberto Aramayo (Nocturnal Animals)
  • Owain Arthur (The Palace)
  • Nazanin Boniadi (Hotel Mumbai)
  • Tom Budge (The Proposition)
  • Morfydd Clark (Crawl)
  • Ismael Cruz Cordova (Ray Donovan)
  • Ema Horvath (The Gallows Act II)
  • Markella Kavenagh (Romper Stomper)
  • Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones)
  • Tyroe Muhafidin
  • Sophia Nomvete
  • Megan Richards
  • Dylan Smith
  • Charlie Vickers (Medici)
  • Daniel Weyman (Gentleman Jack)

Payne and McKay were hired for the series back in July 2018. The upcoming season will take place during The Second Age of the LOTR timeline. This is a 3,441-year era that had some huge events happen: the forging of the Rings of Power, the war with Sauron, the creation of the Ringwraiths, and when the island of Numenor sank into the sea. There are a lot of key moments this show could cover, but at this time, there haven't been many details about the story.
