It looks like British actress Morfydd Clark has won the role of young Galadriel in Amazon’s forthcoming Lord of the Rings series.
According to Variety, sources are saying she has won the role of the Elven queen.
If so, Clark joins Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle and Maxim Baldry in the series. Will Poulter was due to star but has dropped out due to scheduling reasons.
Clark will already be known to fantasy fans, having played Nurse Clara in the BBC/HBO adaptation of His Dark Materials. She also stars alongside Dev Patel in the forthcoming The Personal History of David Copperfield (she’s very good) and is in the imminent Mark Gatiss/Steven Moffat adaptation of Dracula.
