As Amazon continues to flesh out the core cast of its hotly anticipated Lord of the Rings series, the show has moved to add Maxim Baldry to its ranks.
Via Collider, Baldy has joined Lord of the Rings in a mystery role. The actor is likely best known for the likes of Years and Years, Rome and, err, Hollyoaks, and he joins a cast that currently features Markella Kavenagh and Will Poulter. While Baldry’s role in the series is being kept under wraps right now, it’s believed to be a significant character.
Right now, details are being kept extremely secret about Lord of the Rings, with the only slight bit of detail out there being the tease of the show taking placing during the Second Age when the Rings of Power were created – as in, before The Fellowship of the Ring and the main Lord of the Rings trilogy that we’re all so familiar with.
Expect more on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series as it continues to develop.
