Who is in the cast of The Lord of the Rings prequel?
Very few details about the upcoming Amazon series have been revealed but rumours about the cast has been swirling.
Here is what we know so far:
English actor Will Poulter has reportedly been cast in Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings prequel series as one of the leads.
Sadly, there is no news about his role or his character’s race – elf, dwarf, goblin, hobbit, or human – in the series.
The star has appeared in Netflix’s interactive Black Mirror film and famously starred alongside Jennifer Aniston in We’re the Millers.
He also had a main role in the dystopian sci-fi trilogy The Maze Runner and the crime drama Detroit.
Will worked alongside Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio in Revenant and in Ari Aster’s 2019 folk horror Midsommar.
Markella Kavenagh was the first reported cast member for the prequel and is said to be playing a character called Tryna.
Much like Will, it is not known what race her character will be and there is very few reports about her role.
The actress has starred in the sequel TV series to the 1992 Australian movie Romper Stomper, as well as the British mystery drama series The Cry.
Also, she had roles in Amazon’s original series Picnic at Hanging Rock, which was released in 2018.
