GQ Hype: That’s the big story of the present.
Morfydd Clark and I are on a mission. We’re responding to clues — sent to my cell phone — that will guide us around London’s Kensington Palace Gardens and beyond, if we ever get that far. Text Quest is not perfect The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon’s show, in which Clark will soon star as Galadriel. But remaining, the anti-Tolkien activities we argued, Clark reasonably denied. “I couldn’t throw an ax because I just thought I was going to kill someone,” she said.
However, murder was still on Morfydd Clark’s agenda. After playing a supporting role in David Copperfield’s Personal History and the BBC adaptation of His Dark MaterialsShe broke through in unconventional fashion when she starred in the critically acclaimed horror film Saint Maud in 2019. Her description of a young nurse confused in her quest to guide those who have fallen in her care to eternal salvation earned 32-year-old Clark a few points in her life. award nominations in the UK.

Director JA Bayona says it’s difficult to categorize shows: “Television is evolving into a new form of entertainment,” he said. Consists mainly of materials from JRR Tolkien’s Silmarillion (edited and published in the will of the author’s son, Christopher) and appendices in the third and final part Lord of the Rings volume, The return of the KingThat would be a sight hard to ignore.
As well as money, a lot of care and attention has been poured into the new show. There’s barely any footage on the green screen – a boon for Clark, who wears period costumes. “Practise Ring of Power in a small office in your tracksuit feels incredibly stupid,” she said. “And then you start and that’s when you’re like, wow, this is where it’s all going to be — because you step into a whole world. The level of detail reveals a lot of expertise. “
