Andreth

Another actress for the young Andreth I considered was Andi Matichak, who played Allyson Nelson, granddaughter of Laurie Strode, in Halloween (2018). Might be a bit tall, she's 5'8".

So are you suggesting Jamie Lee Curtis for 'older Andreth' in that case?

Why not? I could definitely see the more bitter portrayal, particularly in scenes when she's interacting with Allyson, even though Laurie wouldn't regret a thing about training Karen.

Matichak could also be an option for Adanel, since we're hinting that Adanel is from what becomes the House of Hador.

Yeah Adanel could look a bit less like a typical representative of the House of Bëor.

I will have to go back and listen to what was said. I know Corey wanted Adanel to be dark-haired, and he doubted there would be any reason to explain a separate origin for her. Recall that in Tolkien's story, the Houses of Bëor and Marach occupy Estolad together, which accounts for some of the mingling and intermarriages. We have deleted that element of the story, so now Bereg is of the House of what-will-become-Hador, and Adanel is of the House of Bëor.

The Adanel discussion is at the 46:31 timestamp:

The request is that Adanel 'maybe look a little bit different, but still fit in [with the House of Bëor] well enough not to cause confusion'. Corey asked for 'somebody who is dark-haired, and not necessarily very dark-skinned, but also not very pale, either.'

For an older Andreth, possibly paired with Kaya Scodelario:

Karen Allen?
Height: 5’5”
Age: 69
Roles: Marion Ravenwood in Indiana Jones, Katy in National Lampoon’s Animal House, Claire Phillips in Scrooged

Present day


As Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark for comparison


Marion's first scene, meeting Indiana Jones for the first time in 10 years. This is the only video of the scene I can find, and it’s out of tune.
