Casting Announcements for Amazon's LotR series

Postby Otaku-sempai » Mon Jul 22, 2019 1:20 pm

Variety provides us with the first casting announcement for Amazon's The Lord of the Rings series:
Variety has learned from multiple sources that Markella Kavenagh is in talks for a role in the upcoming epic fantasy series. Details of Kavenagh’s characters are being kept under wraps, but sources say she would be playing a character named Tyra.

Kavenagh is known for having previously starred in the sequel series to the Australian film “Romper Stomper” as well as for roles in the shows “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and “The Cry.” She is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment.

Amazon and reps for Kavenagh declined to comment.


It is unknown at this time whether 'Tyra' is an original character or a false name for a familiar character from Tolkien's legendarium. A this Reddit post from two months ago provided this and other character names.
Auditions are well underway for the show and I've been told that four names in an audition script are Eldien, Beldor, Aric and Tyra.


The post did not provide descriptions of these characters and the names might be false.

Haha, thanks! I was very surprised (and a little proud, I'll admit) that I was the one to break the news. :lol:
