Barahir

I really like him☺. THOUGH I don’t think of him as a hugely versatile actor. He generally plays people that outwardly present a lot of swagger and are wise-crackers, which I don’t necessarily see Barahir as. Perhaps he can do more but I’m not sure I’ve seen it

Well he certainly has a particular style and the good thing about that is that he’s able to make viewers like his characters instantly. He would make Barahir a memorable character.

He’s certainly charismatic. If I had to define him it’s charismatic. His performances in His Dark Materials and Hamilton both show he can play a person you’d follow to the ends of the earth.

That’s more or less what the role requires. I would also argue that his personality fits perfectly with an Emeldir who Corey wants to be ‘scary’.

The one thing I could say against him is that he’s rather modern in his expression, and this could feel out of place in Middle-earth.

Barahir should have a 'dashing' side to him. He's a warrior from a traditionally non-warrior people, and so he has to have that bold side of him to have embraced their new lifestyle. And he saves Finrod, which is a heroic action that would not happen at all if he weren't a risk-taking leader.

As for Lin-Manuel Miranda, he has done a period piece that was not intended to be modern - Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930's London.

I am not sure that Barahir is a role that would require any singing, but I don't think we need 'save' him for a singing role, either.
