‘LORD OF THE RINGS’ SERIES
ROBERT ARAMAYO IS BELDOR
|Earlier this winter everyone was shocked when Will Poulter left Amazon’s LORD OF THE RINGS TV series which is currently in pre-production, but it did not take them long to replace him. His role of young hero Beldor will now go to Robert Aramayo, who starred in Harley and Davidson and Game of Thrones series. As Deadline reports, Amazon has already ordered the second season of the new epic show, the most expensive project ever seen on the small screens (the are rumours that the whole series will cost more than one billion dollars), but the production will go on a few months hiatus after filming first two episodes of season one so that the writers could map out the story and prepare it for season two as well. The only thing that is known of the plot so far is that it will be set in Middle Earth, exploring new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. We have already announced Maxim Baldry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh (as female lead Tyra), Joseph Mawle (as villain Oren) and Morfydd Clark (as Elven queen Galadriel) in the cast of the series that will have 20 episodes in the first season.|
