Despite no official announcements having been made as of yet, the cast for Amazon’s much-anticipated Lord of the Rings TV continues to come into focus. Deadline reports that Ema Horvath has been cast in a series regular role for the fantasy show.
Horvath starred in Halloween studio Blumhouse’s 2017 horror movie Like.Share.Follow when she was still enrolled at Harvard. She has also appeared in The Gallows: Act II and The Mortuary Collection.
The Lord of the Rings TV show will also feature Will Poulter (Bandersnatch, Maze Runner), Markella Kavenagh (Romper Stomper, The Cry), and Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones, Birdsong). It’s unclear yet what roles the actors are playing.
Deadline is also reporting that Amazon is pausing production of the Lord of the Rings TV show in New Zealand for about 4-5 months to give the writing team time to map out the recently announced Season 2.
The new Lord of the Rings show is being written by JD Payne and Patrick McKay, with former Game of Thrones series producer Bryan Cogman also joining the team. Jurassic World: Forbidden Kingdom director JA Bayona is set to direct the first two episodes of Season 1.
The Amazon show is set in the Second Age, which is a 3,441-year period that covered major events like the forging of the Rings of Power, including the One Ring. It also covers the War of Sauron, the beginning of the Ringwraiths, and when Numenor the island sank into the ocean. The Second Age was also when the Elven city of Rivendell was developed, and when the first battle where men, elves, and dwarves fought together for the first time against Sauron.
