CIA operations are less secret than castings And filmed The Rings of Power *-star Morfydd Clark didn’t forget that fact. “I got this untitled Amazon Project email saying they wanted actors with Shakespeare history,” said the Swedish-born, Welsh-raised genius who leads the cast as Galadriel. “I went to the audition and an actor sitting next to me said, ‘Do you know what this is for?’ I was like, ‘No? “They were like, ‘This is the lord. Of. This. The ring
.’ I had to go to the bathroom to spend some time, like, ‘ You’ve been preparing for this all your life.
When she said that, she meant it: her first trip to London revolved around seeing The Hobbit: A Musical , her “nerd family” introduced her to the Shire and its inhabitants as a child, making her entire audition process magical from the start. (Not that she can tell her loved ones; actors are prohibited from revealing to anyone their involvement in the series, even after traveling to Oakland to begin months of production.) She recalls when someone took a giant olive tree Tree brought in a warehouse “feels like Middle-earth” during an audition – walking into Linden, the elven city that came to life in the series premiere moved her to almost tears. “I would say, I’ve always considered myself more of a hobbit, so I was pleasantly surprised to be chosen as the elf,” she admits with a smile.

Tolkien fans will inevitably be divided on Ring of Power
, But you can’t dispute Clark’s performance as a younger version of the so-called Lady of Lothlórien’s Woods, famously embodied by Cate Blanchett in Pitt’s Oscar-winning trilogy. If Blanchett’s Cellar Dreyer seems to have achieved a degree of hard-won peace amid the general chaos around her, Clark’s Cellar Dreyer is at a tormented crossroads. (As a reminder, she is a thousand years younger than her.)
For those who don’t know much about Tolkien lore Man, the Ring of Power
began at the end of the Second Era, centuries after the elves defeated the Dark Lord Morgoth— — albeit before his most loyal servant, Sauron, murdered Galadriel’s brother and fled to the furthest reaches of Middle-earth. Even when her elven companions concluded that Sauron was gone forever, Galadriel insisted on continuing to pursue the enemy – alone, rather than joining Valinor’s elven companions. Of course, her hunch that Morgoth’s evil imprint would make a comeback proved correct.
