Amazon’s big-budget Lord of the Rings TV show is one of the most-anticipated and most secretive projects in Hollywood right now. Actress Nazanin Boniadi has now shared a tiny morsel of insight on the show, saying in an interview that she and the rest of the cast are “very excited” about where the show is headed. “It’s really magical,” Boniadi told SBJCT.
“You can expect a lot of secrecy. My lips are sealed. But I can tell you that we had already started production before New Zealand had to lockdown because of the pandemic. We are all so very excited about what we’ve seen and experienced so far. It’s really magical. Just beyond. Ugh, I so wish I could share more. This is torture!” she said of her experience on the show so far.

Boniadi is one of the 15 cast members for the Amazon show whose involvement with the show was officially confirmed in January. There is no word on specific characters that will appear in the show, so we don’t know who Boniadi or anyone else is playing.
Recently, it was reported that Galadriel, Elrond, and Sauron will all be featured in the Amazon show. The fantasy series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, which is thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Filming is set to resume again soon in New Zealand, a country that has just 2 active coronavirus cases as of August 5.
