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.


How many episodes are in The Lord of the Rings prequel series?

In July, 2019 Amazon’s creative team revealed season one would have a total of 20 episodes.

The series will be set during the Second Age in J.R.R. Tolkien’s vast Middle-earth, which is many of years before the events of the first The Lord of the Rings movie.

Amazon Studios is handling the production side of things in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins — the publisher of The Lord of the Rings books, as well as New Line Cinema.

Amazon have expectations that The Lord of the Rings prequel series will air in 2021.
