Though he only starred in one season, Sean Bean was able to make a significant impact on Game of Thrones as Eddard Stark. What\u2019s interesting is, the actor who played young Ned, Robert Aramayo, is following Bean\u2019s footsteps into the Lord of the Rings franchise.\r\n\r\nAccording to Deadline, Aramayo has been cast in Amazon\u2019s upcoming LOTR series as a character named Beldor. As it turns out, this was the character that was originally supposed to be played by Will Poulter (Midsommar) before he had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=5aO_CsqfBAo\r\n\r\nIf you recall, Sean Bean had played the part of Boromir in Fellowship of the Ring, and though I don\u2019t expect any connection to Aramayo\u2019s character of Beldor, it\u2019s kind of fun that both character names begin with \u201cB\u201d and end with \u201cr\u201d.\r\n\r\nJust in case you haven\u2019t been keeping yourself updated, Amazon\u2019s Lord of the Rings series will not be a reboot of Peter Jackson\u2019s films, but rather an expansion of the story\u2014specifically a prequel. The movies take place in the time of the Third Age, and this series is said to take place in the Second. In the lore, this was basically the same time that Sauron had built all of the Rings, and it ends with the War of the Last Alliance. \r\n\r\nWith Game of Thrones gone, there is a dire need for adult fantasy fans for something to fill in the void, and though The Witcher is great, it\u2019s admittedly not perfect. Let\u2019s hope that Lord of the Rings manages to rejuvenate the fanbase.\r\n\r\nAmazon\u2019s Lord of the Rings series is aiming for a 2021 release.
