While specific details on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series remain sparse, it’s believed the series has officially received its first cast member.

According to reports from Variety, Markella Kavenagh has signed on to play a character named Tyra. No other details are known about the character at this time, though for what it’s worth ‘Tyra’ is a name that could easily belong to either an elf or a human. Kavenagh’s previous credits include television work in The Cry and Picnic at Hanging Rock.

Hopefully we’ll receive more casting news as the summer rolls on. Until then, I remain deeply excited about this series tackling the Second Age of Middle Earth. What do you think about this casting news?
