Crawl star Kaya Scodelario reportedly joins Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings
With Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings resuming production in New Zealand following the global shutdown of the film & TV industries, it seems we may have word on a new casting addition for the hotly-anticipated adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth world.
According to a report from fan site The One Ring, The Maze Runner and Crawl star Kaya Scodelario has landed a role in the series, with the site stating that: “She definitely has a Liv Tyler aesthetic, and as Elrond & Galadriel are in the show it’s quite possible we are looking at Arwen’s mother: Celebrían.”
Adding weight to the report is a recent Instagram post from the British actress, who shared a photo of herself on an aeroplane captioned: “Preparing for 27-hour flight with a toddler. Wish me luck.”
Should the casting report prove true, Scodelario will join a cast that includes Robert Aramayo (The King’s Man), Owain Arthur (A Confession), Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland), Tom Budge (The Wrong Girl), Morfydd Clark (His Dark Materials), Ismael Cruz Córdova (Berlin Station), Ema Horvath (Like.Share.Follow), Markella Kavenagh (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones), Megan Richards (Wanderlust), Dylan Smith (I Am The Night), Charlie Vickers (Medici), Tyroe Muhafidin and Sophia Nomvete.
The Lord of the Rings has been developed by JD Payne and Patrick McKay (Star Trek Beyond), with J.A. Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) directing. It was originally scheduled to premiere in 2021, but at this point it is unclear how Amazon’s plans will have been impacted by the global health crisis.
