Everything seems to be going right for Amazon's upcoming mega venture, Lord of The Rings series, which by now we know, is one of the ambitious projects for the streamer and more so termed to be the equivalent of Game of Thrones.
From casting to shoot locations and an early Season 2 renewal, we have been reporting about the many developments in the show all this while. And now, yet another development has taken place as the show has roped in actor Robert Aramayo. As one would remember, actor Will Poulter was roped in to play the young hero role, referred to as Beldor in the show but backed out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
It is Aramayo who has replaced him. In conjunction with that renewal, the series will be going on a 4-5-month hiatus after filming the first two episodes from Season 1 to map out and write the bulk of the scripts for Season 2, according to Deadline.
The Lord of the Rings series is produced by Amazon Studios. Showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay executive produce with director J.A. Bayona and his producing partner Belén Atienza, Lindsey Weber, Bruce Richmond, Gene Kelly, Sharon Tal Yguado as well as writers Gennifer Hutchison; Jason Cahill and Justin Doble.
Interestingly, Aramayo played Young Ned Stark on seasons six and seven of HBO’s fantasy blockbuster series Game Of Thrones. We certainly are excited for the show.
