So what's the order for how actors will be cast?


Staff member
It was decided that the characters were to be discussed in the order of their appearance in the series. When their characters are defined, the casting follows.


Staff member
It is being done by Season of the TV series.

So, Season 1 begins with Ainulindalë and ends with the War of the Powers. Casting for this season is complete.

Season 2 begins with the awakening of the Elves and ends with....well, somewhere around the fall of the Noldor. Since this season has not been discussed at all yet, that will be the next task for casting.


Staff member
Thingol, Cirdan, and the ones who are in Valinor.

Vanyar: Ingwë, Indis

Noldor: Finwë, Míriel, Fëanor, Fingolfin, Finarfin, Nerdanel, Anarië, Mahtan, 7 Sons of Fëanor, Fingon, Turgon, Aredhel, Elenwë, Finrod, (Orodreth), Aegnor, Galadriel

Teleri: Olwë, Eärwen

...well, you get the idea.

Domhnall Gleeson is Curumo, so he can't be Maedhros.
The plan is: 1. Season outline. 2. Episode planning, in which characters take form. 3. Nomination. 4. Polls. 5. The execs clear or veto the results of the polls.
Nomination won't happen until... Well it will take some months.
