Season 4 Casting Call

So we’re starting Season 4, and there are a couple questions to start off: who needs to be cast this season and what physical appearance will we want for them, plus other skills like singing? I hope to avoid a situation like last year when one role (Caranthir) was not cast because the Hosts did not like any of the nominees.

Well as we develop the plotlines for Season 4, we'll start to see what characters we'll need to cast. Some we know already though.

We will definitely need:

Glorfindel
Ecthelion
Caranthir
Orodreth
Zirak

We'll refine this list as we get into the Season, though.

We cast Orodreth for Season 3. I think Finduilas is also worth casting, or will we not show her until she becomes more relavent in the Children of Hurin storyline?

Finduilas almost certainly isn't born yet in season 4. Orodreth (her father) will be getting married to a Sinda woman this season as part of the Sindar/Noldor storyline.

Ah, shoot. Thought Finduilas was born by the Rising of the Sun.

Good question! We did not specify, but included him as the youngest Finarfinian, at the very least. We should probably make up our minds about that soon.....

Orodreth married a Sinda, whom he met *after* the rising of the Sun. So, no, Finduilas can't have been born before the rising of the Sun.

...We also have no final verdict on Gil-galad's parentage at this point, but he *may* be Finduilas' younger brother.

We’ll have to explain the logistics of Gil-galad being at the Falas and not at Nargothrond.

We can probably make an exception to the 'no casting someone who has already been cast' for voice-only roles.
That is true; Mark Hadlow played both Dori and Bert the Troll in The Hobbit, which includes Bert getting hit in the groin by Dori.

Yes! We still have child!Idril at the beginning of the Season, perhaps, but we *definitely* get adult Idril before they move to Gondolin. We'll probably want to introduce adult Idril at the Feast, though maybe in a different episode.

Waiting until we at least map out the season is probably best, but if there's someone you *know* we need to cast for Season 4, you're welcome to start that thread whenever you like.
