The Amazon Prime series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power debuted earlier this month to huge numbers, becoming the streaming service's biggest premiere of all time. The show seems to be running a little behind HBO's Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon in the competition for most-watched, most-talked-about fantasy series, but still doing quite well. The Rings of Power is in the process of introducing a massive cast of Elves, Harfoots, Dwarves, Orcs, and plain-old humans. Let's a take a look at a few of the more attractive ladies in the mix...
Welsh actress Morfyyd Clark (first name pronounced Mor-fuhth apparently) is Galadriel, a younger, more action-oriented version of the ethereal royal Elf played by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Clark was previously best known for her work in the A24 horror film Saint Maud.
Kavenagh is best known for the Australian film My First Summer and the series Picnic at Hanging Rock. She plays Elanor 'Nori' Brandyfoot in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Nori is a Harfoot, a type of Hobbit described by Tolkien as smaller and of darker complexion.
British actress and activist Nazanin Boniadi got her start in soap operas, but has since racked up dozens of film and TV credits, including work in Hotel Mumbai, How I Met Your Mother, and Homeland. Here she plays village healer and single mom Bronwyn.
An American actress best known for her work in What Lies Below and Don't Look Deeper, Ema Horvath plays Eärien, a Númenórean lady created for the show. She is the sister of Isildur, a legendary figure in Tolkien lore who goes on to become king of Arnor and Gondor.
American Cynthia Addai-Robinson plays Miriel, Queen-Regent of Númenor. You may know her from her work in Power, Chicago Med, or Shooter.
