Popverse's top stories of the day


The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power stars Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Nazanin Boniadi, Peter Mullan, and more as the key players during the major events of the Second Age of Middle-Earth. The series includes both well-known Tolkien characters and original characters for the show. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is created by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

Ashley V. Robinson had a chance to chat with some of the cast to figure out what drives their characters and the depths of research which goes into each and every performance.

"It's so easy with J.D. and Patrick being so knowledgable about the lore," Boniadi (who plays Bronwyn) says tells Popverse about working on set with showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. "coming into this. But, now I have studied. But, everything is just anchored in Tolkien. You anchor everything in the source material and it comes together in the right way."

The cast from lef to right includes: Charles Edwards (Celebrimbor), Daniel Weyman (The Stranger), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Queen Regent Míriel), Sara Zwangobani (Marigold Brandyfoot), Leon Wadham (Kemen), Nazanin Boniadi (Brownwyn), and Benjamin Walker (High King Gal-Galad)

Here is our full 12-minute interview with the cast of The Rings of Power.
