Amazon confirms the 'Fellowship' for its The Lord of the Rings prequel TV series

A grand journey is defined by its travelers.  Amazon Studios at TCA has confirmed the first set of regular cast members for its ambitious The Lord of the Rings prequel TV series. Some of the faces have already been confirmed but there are some new additions too.

The full cast list is as follows...

Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers and Daniel Weyman.

Filming begins in New Zealand next month and the cast have already travelled over as table reads get underway. It was previously announced that there will be a few month's break between episodes two and three to work on the scripts for the already confirmed second season.

At TCA, Amazon Co-head of TV Vernon Sanders confirmed that there are still a few roles to cast and added that characters the actors will be playing won't be released now. (Though Morfydd Clark has been confirmed as playing a younger Galadriel).

Executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay added:

“After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series. These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide.”
