Morfydd Clark (His Dark Materials) has been cast as young Galadriel in the upcoming The Lord of the Rings series, according to Variety. The Amazon series has already cast Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle and Maxim Baldry. Clark will soon be seen in BBC’s Dracula and The Personal History of David Copperfield with Dev Patel. The role of Galadriel was played by Cate Blanchett in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings films.

Set in Middle-earth, the television adaptation will explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. A world-renowned literary work, and winner of the International Fantasy Award and Prometheus Hall of Fame Award, The Lord of the Rings novels were named Amazon customers’ favorite book of the millennium in 1999 and Britain’s best-loved novel of all time in BBC’s The Big Read in 2003.

The theatrical adaptations, from New Line Cinema and director Peter Jackson, earned a combined gross of nearly $6 billion worldwide and garnered a combined 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
