Cynthia Addai-Robinson on ‘Rings of Energy,’ Miriel, ‘Lord of the Rings

If Cynthia Addai-Robinson wasn’t an actor she’d be a queen. As fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings franchise nows, Addai-Robinson’s reply is becoming.

Addai-Robinson performs Queen Regent Míriel in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Energy, Amazon Prime Video’s prequel to Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films. In honor of the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Energy, we performed a sport of So Candid with Addai-Robinson, the place we requested her a wide range of random questions—from her go-to karaoke tune (trace: she sings Cher for us) to the movie star she’s been mistaken for—as a part of STYLECASTER’s “Watch This House” digital vacation spot. 

In her September 2022 cowl story for STYLECASTER, Addai-Robinson revealed that she auditioned for one more The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power character earlier than she was forged as Queen Míriel. “It was Bronwyn. However what’s superb concerning the casting is everybody who inhabits their character really has the essence of that character. I can’t think about anybody however Naz (Nazanin Boniadi) in that position,” she mentioned. “It’s a must to belief when issues finally don’t go your approach, there’s a motive for that. I needed to have that second of every thing occurs for a motive.”

She continued, “What’s been stunning is when the position of Míriel got here to me, I didn’t know what it was going to ivolve. I didn’t know a lot concerning the character. They’d saved the entire character names a secret. They’d coded names and the auditions have been simply made-up sides. As soon as I noticed what I used to be going to get to do with Míriel, it did really feel fated. It felt like that is the position I’m presupposed to play. That is the individual that I’m presupposed to inhabit. All of it did work out because it was meant to work out.”

She additionally mentioned how she thinks Rings of Energy is completely different from The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit strikes followers have come to know and love. “Most individuals are aware of Tolkien’s variations by way of the Peter Jackson movies. That’s the Third Age. For our collection, we’re setting the Second Age, which spans hundreds of years. There’s a variety of story to cowl and to mine,” she mentioned. “With Númenor and the a part of the world I characterize, nobody has ever depicted Númenor on display screen. That is the primary time we’re displaying what Númenor seems like.”

She continued, “There are a variety of points of the present which might be going to be new to viewers for the primary time, and issues which might be going to be acquainted. We’re aware of elves. We’re aware of dwarves. However as a result of we’re hundreds of years earlier than. We’re in a time of relative peace. We’re in a time of relative prosperity. There’s a lot that occurs from the place our collection begins, and the place it would finally finish. Even in case you’ve by no means learn Tolkein or seen any of the earlier movies, you may be utterly new to this and you may perceive and benefit from the story. It’s not a prerequisite to have seen or learn something upfront.”
