Lord of the Rings TV show casts first character named 'Tyra'

Amazon's highly anticipated Lord of the Rings TV show has revealed the first member to be casted to the most expensive show of all time.


A recent report out of Deadline has revealed that Young Australian actress, Markella Kavenagh will be casted to Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series. Kavenagh is known for her role in the Australian TV series Romper Stomper, but her role in Amazon's TV show is not known at the moment. Some other sites are reporting that she will be playing a character named 'Tyra', but there hasn't been an official confirmation as of yet.

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV show will be taking fans of the Tolkien's work all the back past the events of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Fans will be taken to the second age of Middle Earth, and be introduced to the rise and fall of Numenor (Aragorn descendants). I recently reported that a 'huge' part of the show was going to be filmed in New Zealand, the same location where Peter Jackson filmed The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, more on that here. Amazon also poached a Game of Thrones screenwriter to work on the Lord of the Rings series, check out that here.
