Amazon's The Lord of the Rings: Official Casting Revealed

‘Lord of the Rings’ Series at Amazon Sets Main Cast

An exact release date for the series is yet to be announced, but with production not beginning till later in the year it could still be a while before we see anything.

"After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon's The Lord of the Rings series", Said McKay and Payne said in a statement.

Those new additions include Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Ismael Cruz Cordova (The Mandalorian), Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomevete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, and Daniel Weyman.

Aramayo, who played Eddard Stark in the sixth season of the hit series Game of Thrones, is tipped to play the lead in the Lord of the Rings series.

Payne and McKay are writing the episodes for the series (they've both previously worked on Star Trek Beyond and the upcoming Flash movie), and they'll be joined by Bryan Cogman, writer of some of the best episodes of Game Of Thrones, who is a consulting producer on this project.
