Amazon’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS Series Adds More Actors to the Cast.
Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings has added more members to the cast of its first season. Those cast members include Charles Edwards (The Crown) and Will Fletcher (The Girl Who Fell), along with newcomers Amelie Child-Villiers (The Machine) and Beau Cassidy.
The Lord of the Rings “brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.”
Game of Thrones alum Bryan Cogman serves as a consulting producer on the show, and J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay lead the charge on the project as the writers and showrunners.
