Charlotte Brändström has joined the creative team of the Amazon Original series ‘The Lord of the Rings’ as a director. Brändström is Swedish-French Director, who has been an International Emmy Award®-nominee for Julie, chevalier de Maupin.
Continuing on the work of Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona and British Chinese Director Wayne Che Yip, Brändström joins the international ensemble cast, currently filming in New Zealand, to direct two episodes.
Brändström has also directed over 30 feature films, mini-series, and movies-of-the-week including episodes of The Man in the High Castle, Outlander, The Witcher, and Jupiter’s Legacy.
“I’m very excited to be guided through Middle-earth by J.D.'s and Patrick’s vision and immerse myself in the iconic world of J.R.R. Tolkien. It’s a great privilege to be in New Zealand t.o work with Amazon Studios’ outstanding ensemble of creative talents,” said Brändström. “There are countless things still to see in Middle-earth, and great works to do,” she added, quoting Gimli.
Amazon Studios’ ‘The Lord of the Rings’ series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth's history. 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 confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
As previously announced, the series is led by showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay; they are joined by executive producers Lindsey Weber, Callum Greene, J.A. Bayona, Belén Atienza, Justin Doble, Jason Cahill, Gennifer Hutchison, Bruce Richmond, and Sharon Tal Yguado, co-executive producer Wayne Che Yip, and producer Christopher Newman.
