SPOILER ALERT: This video contains details & exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the sixth episode of Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which dropped on September 29. A new episode of Inside the Ring will debut every week of Season 1 of Rings of Power. Watch past episodes here.
“The thing about the battle is I feel that the Númenóreans are superhuman, even though Elendil will not have fought yet, this is the first time he finds himself on a battlefield,” The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’s Lloyd Owen of the island kingdom’s warriors joining the fray to free the Southlands from the evil Orcs
“I feel like with the Númenóreans, it’s like playing sport against an Olympian or someone who is a World Champion for the rest of us,” adds the actor who plays the emerging leader in Amazon Prime Video’s adaptation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. “ They are just so quick, they’re so smart, they see the game from a different angle, and I think that’s definitely the case with them on the battlefield,” says Owen in today’s episode of Deadline’s Inside the Ring, the Rings of Power after show – as you can see in the video above.
Of course, this being the sweeping Rings of Power and this being Inside the Ring, there’s always more than one perspective on the great battle that consumes “Udûn”, the sixth episode of the LOTR TV series.
“The people rising, they take arms on their own,’ states Ismael Cruz Cordova of the humans of Middle-earth’s move with his Arondir character to save themselves from Adar and the Orc army. “They’re not waiting for anyone else to save them. They get back-up later, but, I mean, the Southlanders kind of kick ass before anyone else.”
Once again featuring revealing interviews with key cast and creatives, as well as exclusive behind the scenes footage, today’s Inside the Ring goes deep into the pivotal and volcanic “Udûn”, as we head to next week’s penultimate episode of Rings of Power’s first season.
As the united forces of the Elves, Númenóreans and humans take on the Orcs, alliances are made and broken and dark origins are unsheathed this week As families and kingdoms are shattered and saved, and mysteries are solved a new reality erupts that will change everything – to put it mildly.
As well as having Lloyd Owen and Ismael Cruz Cordova on board, this week’s Inside the Ring also features interviews with fellow cast members Morfydd Clark (Galadriel), Charlie Vickers (Halbrand), Tyroe Muhafidin (Theo), Maxim Baldry (Isildur), and Nazanin Boniadi (Bronwyn).
