What role does Galadriel play in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power?
Galadriel appeared in the Fellowship of the Ring played by actress Cate Blanchett. In the Amazon series, however, Morfydd Clark will be in charge of giving voice and face. McKay and Payne wanted to explore her past before she became queen of the elves of the Kingdom of Lothlorien.
During the start of the series, Galadriel will have to deal with her internal ghosts. Her fears and concerns arise after surviving the attacks of the dark god Morgoth and her general, Sauron . Both put the whole of Middle-earth in check and the young swordswoman is one of the people who looked the threat directly in her eyes. Along the way she lost the one closest to her. Brothers, friends… she Now she is more alone than before.
Mckay describes her as a character “full of bad drool and a lot of vinegar”. In her first appearance, she is accompanied by a sword broken by the number of orcs she has killed. During the series we will see her transformation towards the final image of her, that of a serene and wise leader.
From Collider they remember Tolkien’s intentions about the character. In a letter written in 1973, the author compares Galadriel to an Amazon warfare whose name gives meaning to her appearance. In Sindarin, the elven language, Galadriel means “crowned maiden with shining hair”.
Remember that The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere on Prime Video next September 2.
