Amazon's new highly anticipated series The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power features a number of new characters, added to J R R Tolkien's world just for this series.


However, it also includes plenty of Tolkien's creations, such as Galadriel, Elrond, Celebrimbor and Isildur, all played by new actors rather than those who originated some of those roles in Peter Jackson's films.

One character from Tolkien's work that doesn't appear in the movies is Finrod, Galadriel's brother, who is set to make his debut in Prime Video's The Rings of Power, played by British actor Will Fletcher.

But who is Fletcher, what has he been in previously, and what has he said about joining the huge and beloved fantasy franchise?

Fletcher is a British actor who trained at RADA and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He graduated in 2019, and has gone on to star in both theatre and film.

He was cast in the series back in 2021, and while his role as Finrod has never been officially confirmed by Amazon, eagle-eyed fans discovered his inclusion once some of the show's first footage was released in early trailers, with the character seen deep in battle.

Fletcher has numerous credits from his time at drama school at the Bristol Old Vic, and has since starred in The Girl Who Fell at Trafalgar Studios in London.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is his first TV credit, but he has appeared on screen before, starring in feature film The Road Dance last year.

In that film, Fletcher played Murdo MacAulay, the love interest of central character Kirsty who is called up to fight in the First World War.

Fletcher told The Upcoming that fans should expect "adventure" from the series, and went on to call it "a thrill-ride".

He also revealed that when he found out he got the role he bought Tolkien's The Silmarillion and said he found there was "so much to mine" from the book.

He teased that he had some "amazing 'pinch me' moments" while on-set, too, which we're sure to see play out in the episodes.

On Instagram, meanwhile, he said that he "Can’t wait to share this epic story!!". He has said little so far about his character, details surrounding whom are being kept under wraps.
