THE LORD OF THE RINGS: Surprising Details On Ema Horvath's Role In The Amazon Series Revealed

Details on Ema Horvath's (What Lies Below) role in Amazon's upcoming The Lord of the Rings series have come to light, and it's safe to say Tolkien purists might have something to say about this!

Amazon's still untitled The Lord of the Rings series is set to premiere this September, and even though the show is still shrouded in a certain amount of mystery, a recent synopsis gave us a little more to go on when it comes to the plot and setting. The characters are a different story, however.

We know that a younger take on Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) will feature, but most of the other names we've heard don't appear to belong to any established Middle Earth figures. Now, Fellowship of Fans claim to have confirmed the rumor that Isildur will appear, but the rest of their report may not sit very well with Tolkien purists!

According to the site, recent cast addition Ema Horvath (What Lies Below, The Gallows Act II) is playing Carine, who is believed to be the sister of Isildur. LOTR aficionados will likely be aware that Isildur did not have a sister (he ruled Gondor will his only brother, Anárion), so this will be a new character created for the show. Carine is said to object to her brother's decision to join the Númenórean army and set sail for Middle Earth alongside his friends Nolion, Valandil, and Ontamo, but her part in the series beyond this is unclear.

Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
