Amazon’s Rings of Power Episode 1 introduces one of the most powerful characters in Middle-earth

The first episode of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power introduces viewers to Finrod Felagund (Will Fletcher), the older brother of Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and one of the most powerful characters in Tolkien history. He first appears during the opening scenes to discuss ships with his younger sister and share some elven wisdom before leading the armies of Valinor against the forces of Morgoth. Afterwards, he is dragged away by his soldiers after ravaging an orc.

In the original Tolkien fiction, Finrod played a pivotal role during the First Age, giving his life to save Beren from torture at the hands of Sauron, who was still serving under Morgoth. In his lifetime, however, he was considered a noble Elf of great heroism, and he proved more than capable of fighting Sauron by sheer will. This chapter of his story ended in tragedy, but it was not an unfortunate ending as Finrod was reincarnated after death.

According to IMDb, Fletcher will portray Finrod in several episodes of The Rings of Power and it will be interesting to see how he is used. The character features heavily in Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, but the Amazon series can’t depict the events of that story for copyright reasons (via Vanity Fair).
