If Cynthia Addai-Robinson wasn’t an actress, she would be a queen. As a current fan of JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series, Addai-Robinson’s answer is appropriate.
Addai-Robinson plays King Regent Míriel in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon Prime Video Prequel to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film. In honor of the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerwe played So Candid with Addai-Robinson, where we asked her many random questions — from her karaoke song (hint: she sang Cher to us) to celebrity sound she was confused about — as part of STYLECASTER’s “Watch This Space” Digital Destination.
In her September 2022 cover story for STYLECASTER, Addai-Robinson revealed that she auditioned for a The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerr character before she was chosen as Queen Miriel. “That’s Bronwyn. But the amazing thing about casting is that everyone who lives in their character actually has that character’s essence. I can’t imagine anyone other than Naz (Nazanin Boniadi) playing that role,” she said. “You have to trust when things don’t go your way in the end, there’s a reason for that. I had to have that moment everything happens for a reason. “
She continued, “The great thing is when the role of Míriel came to me, I didn’t know what it would entail. I don’t know much about the character. They have kept all the character names secret. They have coded names and auditions are just made-up faces. Once I saw what I was going to do with Míriel, it felt very exhausting. It seems that this is the role that I have to play. This is the person I have to be with. Everything went as it was intended.”
She also discusses how she thinks Ring of Power different from each other Lord of the Rings and Hobbit moves that fans have come to know and love. “Most people are familiar with Tolkien’s adaptations of Peter Jackson films. It is the third era. For our series, we’re setting up a Second Era, which spans thousands of years. She said. “With Númenor and the part of the world I represent, no one has ever portrayed Númenor on screen. This is the first time we’ve shown what Númenor looks like.”
She continued, “There are a lot of aspects of the show that will be new to first-time viewers and things that will become familiar. We are familiar with elves. We are familiar with dwarves. But because of us thousands of years ago. We are in a period of relative peace. We are in a period of relative prosperity. There’s a lot going on from where our series begins and where it ends up in the end. Even if you have never read Tolkein or watched any of the movies before, you can be completely new to this movie and you can understand and enjoy the story. It is not a prerequisite to preview or read anything. “
