Many of these actors come from New Zealand, which is where the brunt of the series is being filmed. However, there are others that hail from Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Here’s what showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay said of the newcomers:

The world that J.R.R. Tolkien created is epic, diverse, and filled with heart. These extraordinarily talented performers, hailing from across the globe, represent the culmination of a multi-year search to find brilliant and unique artists to bring that world to life anew. The international cast of Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series is more than just an ensemble. It is a family. We are thrilled to welcome each of them to Middle-earth.
