Amazon Studios has revealed four new members joining the cast of the upcoming The Lord of the Rings TV series today. Will Fletcher, Charles Edwards, Amelie Child-Villiers, and Beau Cassidy will round out the ensemble cast of the series which is currently shooting in New Zealand.
Will Fletcher, before graduating in 2019, studied at RADA and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He then went on to star in Hannah Price's film The Girl Who Fell at Trafalgar Studios. Fletcher most recently starred alongside Hermione Corfield in the independent film The Road Dance, directed by Richie Adams.
Edwards’ television credits include Louis in Under the Vines, Alexander MacDonald in The Terror, Martin Charteris in The Crown - Seasons 3 & 4, Lucian in The Halcyon, and Michael Gregson in Downton Abbey. Edwards can be seen in the films The Duke, directed by Roger Michell and starring Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent, and Mr. Jenkins in Robert Zemeckis' adaptation of The Witches.
Amelie Child-Villiers (pronounced Child Villas) is a new and exciting 13-year-old actress who has already appeared in several high-profile projects in the short time that she’s been acting professionally. In 2019, she starred as Nina in Prano Bailey-psychological Bond's horror Censor, for which she was named a Screen International "Star of Tomorrow" in 2018. With Mark Hamill and Bert Kreischer, Child-Villiers recently concluded filming on The Machine.
Beau Cassidy has been pursuing her acting dreams since playing Phileas Fogg in a school production of Around the World in Eighty Days at the age of seven. In 2019, she signed with a talent agency and landed her first role in Amazon's The Lord of the Rings TV series. In 2020, she will be seen in her first feature movie, Nude Tuesday, a New Zealand-Australian comedy that will be released soon.
The upcoming series from Amazon Studios will bring the epic legends of Middle-earth's fabled Second Age to the screen for the first time. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they face the long-feared re-return of evil to Middle-earth. These kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that will live on long after they are gone, from the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Nmenor, to the farthest reaches of the map.
