“His Dark Materials” and “The Alienist” actress Morfydd Clark has landed a leading role as a young Galadriel in Amazon’s upcoming “The Lord of the Rings” TV series.
This marks one of the first major characters from the book or film announced for the show. The character was famously portrayed by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson’s ‘Rings’ and ‘Hobbit’ film trilogies.
Clark joins a cast that includes Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle and Maxim Baldry. Writers JD Payne and Patrick McKay are developing the series while Bryan Cogman has signed on as a consulting producer.
J.A. Bayona is set to direct multiple episodes.
