Amazon Studios has officially announced welcomed award-winning actors Ciarán Hinds (Belfast), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), and Tanya Moodie (Sherlock) to the cast of Prime Video’s hit fantasy drama. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is currently filming its second season in the U.K. Further details about their respective characters are still being kept under wraps, but it has been confirmed that three of them have been tapped for recurring roles.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power features an ensemble cast led by Robert Aramayo as Elrond, Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, Maxim Baldry as Isildur, Nazanin Boniadi as human village healer Bronwyn, Ismael Cruz Córdova as the Silvan elf Arondir, Charles Edwards as elven smith Celebrimbor, Sophia Nomvete as dwarven princess Disa, Charlie Vickers as Halbrand, Sir Lenny Henry as Sadoc Burrows, Dylan Smith as Largo Brandyfoot, and more.
The high-profile fantasy drama is expected to cover multiple storylines, “from deep within the dwarf mines of the Misty Mountains to the high politics of the elven kingdom of Lindon and the humans’ powerful, Atlantis-like island, Númenor,” which will eventually converge on the creation of the titular powerful rings.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is developed and executive produced by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, who are serving as showrunners. Even before it went into production for the first season, Amazon Studios granted the project a second-season renewal.
