Morfydd Clark to play Galadriel in Amazon's Lord of the Rings series
The Crawl star has been cast as young Galadriel in Amazon's ambitious Lord of the Rings series
Morfydd Clark joins Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle and Maxim Baldry in Amazon's Lord of The Rings series which is currently under production. The role of Galadriel, a royal elf, was famously portrayed by two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett in the film trilogy.
JA Bayona of Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom fame will be directing the first two episodes of the Lord of the Rings show. He will also serve as executive producer alongside partner Belen Atienza, according to reports.
The series will not be a retelling of Peter Jackson's Oscar-winning trilogy. It will explore the story set before the events in the first LOTR novel, The Fellowship of the Ring.
The much-awaited project will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins, and New Line Cinema.
