While there will be some familiar characters in Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series, we’re also set to have some completely new faces appearing in the show. The reveals have been slow, but now we have new images for characters Theo (Tyroe Muhafidin) and Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi).
Here’s the LOTR post:

No details were released about the characters, but some are already making their guesses as to who they could be. Some suspect that Theo is a Harfoot (the show’s earlier version of a Hobbit) and Bronwyn is an elf.
My guess is that the two characters are actually related to the Kingdom of Rohan (Land of the Horse Lords). Theo could very well be a connected to the name Theoden—as in King Theoden who we meet in Two Towers. Bronwyn also feels like it could come from the same name family as Eowyn.
For now, fans are eagerly anticipating more reveals as so they can gauge their excitement for the show. With Peter Jackson’s movies being revered as the best fantasy franchise of all time, there’s a lot of pressure for Rings of Power to deliver—I mean, even Jackson couldn’t top himself with the Hobbit trilogy, but that could also be due to studio meddling.
Amazon Studios’ forthcoming 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, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.
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.
