We recently found out that Game of Thrones actor Robert Aramayo would replace Will Poulter in the lead, and he’ll join previously announced castmates Joseph Mawle, Markella Kavenagh, Ema Horvath, and Morfydd Clark as a young Galadriel.
The elven Queen is the only established LOTR character that’s been confirmed for the show, although there is speculation that some of the other names that have been revealed could be fakes to throw people off. Either way, Amazon is playing its card close to the chest on this one.
