Is this a direction we want to go?Yeah. To be fair, a casting process should start with a character description, and include a description of what the actor should look like or be able to do before we even get to the nomination stage. I know we have informally discussed that here, but we haven't ever made actual character profiles before. Doing that, and sharing them with the Hosts for feedback prior to nominations, would probably make this process more robust. Knowing what scenes we have planned for the characters isn't always entirely possible, but still, we can try to sort out character arcs.
Also, realistically, a character profile would be something you could hand to a casting director, so it would maybe feel a bit more productive than simply casting this project with actors we know.
I’ll see what I can do. But I’ll need help.I don't want to unilaterally decide anything. But yeah, I think that would be an improvement. Is that something you'd be willing to work on?
Hence the reference to other capabilities.I request that character profiles include specifying who needs to be capable of singing and/or dancing.
So what characters will debut in Season 4?Yeah, this would have to be a group effort, definitely.
Eol was cast for Season 2.Orodreth
probably Finduilas and Gil-Galad
Annael, if at all possible
various less-than-royal side characters in Doriath and among the Noldor (see below)
optionally: Voronwe and Pengolodh would be born during this time, probably, unless we use the version of Pengolodh who's from Valinor. Gildor could be introduced if we want. Probably Glorfindel, Echthelion, Egalmoth, etc. (It'll be easier to mourn for them if they're a bit known to audiences before the season when they die.) etc.
I would like to introduce Galadhon, Galathil, and Oropher in Doriath.
Bafore the Dagor Bragollach, we'll also be introducing a large number of mortals.
Depends on what we decide to cover this season. We need to decide whether or not to split the events from the waking of Men to the Dagor Bragollach.Wouldn't be tnis the seasin in which we introduce the humans? So we should meet beor, marach, haleth etc. ... did we decide to do a hildorien arch or not?
