Robyn Malcolm, who played Morwen in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers spoke to Stuff.nz about how she believes that its time that women are brought to the front of the big screen. Here is what she had to say, "Those old legends, those old mystical stories, they're so based within a patriarchal landscape. Why not look at the magic of a matrilineal world where the magical powerhouses are women?"

For those that don't know, Ian McKellen played the role of Gandalf in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy and did an impeccable job, earning numerous nominations for best supporting actor. Malcolm continued to express her beliefs that women should be able to assume the roles of initially male characters regardless of Tolkien's extremely detailed source material says. Malcolm said "We've had female Hamlets." "Why not?"

At the moment we don't know when Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV show will release, but we do know that it will be based in the Second Age of Middle Earth and that the filming location will be in the same spot as Peter Jackson's trilogy.
