In case you’ve been following all of the fan theories about The Rings of Energy, you probably weren’t or is not going to be stunned to study that Halbrand is the truth is the Darkish Lord Sauron, as many had already surmised. How you’re feeling about this twist (or how properly/poorly it was arrange) is in fact as much as you, however the Hollywood Reporter has a really attention-grabbing interview with Charlie Vickers, who performs the character, by which the actor reveals he had no thought he was enjoying the Lord of the Rings’ greatest (and shape-shifting) antagonist till just a few episodes in:

“I didn’t know for certain till the start of the third episode. We filmed the primary two episodes after which the present went on hiatus due to covid. Towards the tip of the hiatus, the showrunners sat me down and advised me. I filmed that sequence on the raft not understanding. I filmed it as Halbrand wholeheartedly. However I did have an inkling, if I’m trustworthy with you. My final two auditions had been [reading lines from] Richard III and we all know he’s not the best man on this planet. After which the opposite [audition lines were] from Paradise Misplaced the place you’re actually giving the speech as Devil. In order that gave me an inkling there was one thing up.”

As clues go, that’s fairly strong, however Eru Ilúvatar is aware of The Rings of Energy dropped a number of extra apparent ones via the collection’ inaugural 9 episodes.

I extremely suggest giving the entire interview a learn in case you’re so inclined, as Vickers talks an amazing deal about Halbrand/Sauron’s motivations for a few of his surprising actions within the first season, that are attention-grabbing to study. What I’m most enthusiastic about is that apparently we’ll study why the Darkish Lord caught himself on a ramshackle raft in the midst of the Sundering Seas in season two, as a result of it bugs me immensely.

Need extra io9 information? Try when to count on the most recent Marvel and Star Wars releases, what’s subsequent for the DC Universe on film and TV, and all the pieces you should find out about House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
