Galadriel from The Rings of Power reveals the real reason Valinor was passed over: Big component of her
On Thursday, an intriguing double-episode premiere of The Rings of Power, the highly awaited Lord of the Rings spin-off, took place. When Morfydd Clark’s character Galadriel decided against entering Valinor, the actor talked about the scene and explained the underlying reason for Galadriel’s choice.
Viewers learned about Galadriel’s past during the first episode, A Shadow of the Past.
She recounted that Morgoth destroyed their house and set off the Great Battle, in which the Valar, the Elves, and the Men battled Morgoth.
“We left Valinor our home,” Galadriel said as the Tolkien maps appeared on screens. “We traveled to a distant realm, a place known as Middle-earth.”
But as the episode came to an end, the warrior’s choice to go back weighed heavily on her mind as she looked for any indications of the Dark Lord Morgoth or Sauron.
Galadriel was gently pushed to put an end to her weary search and live happily in Valinor by the High King Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker).
Galadriel was persuaded by Elrond (Robert Aramayo), but as they neared her house, she couldn’t shake the uneasy feeling.
Just as the boat was about to enter Valinor, she made the decision to leap out since she had a gut feeling that evil was still around.
The actor Morfydd discussed her character’s impulsive choice and revealed the real reason why she declined the King’s invitation.
“Galadriel has taken a major decision by choosing not to travel there [Valinor], and I believe that’s really a big element of her character,” Morfydd said.
It’s much more tragic because she feels unworthy and is aware of Valinor’s goodness.
The actress said to TV Line, “She knows how lovely it can be there, but she doesn’t feel like she’s worthy of it.”
The Undying Lands, or Valinor, a realm of the Valar where Elves lived in perpetual bliss, was also shown to viewers.
However, considering how much internal suffering I’m experiencing and how uncertain it is that I have accomplished the task for which I came to Middle-earth, it might not be heaven for me.
The much anticipated double premiere was a big success with the audience.
Due to a rumored $715 million production budget, the show received praise for its cinematography, aesthetics, and musical score. It trailed Amazon in all categories.
The Hobbit and the original Lord of the Rings movies are set thousands of years before The Rings of Power, the Lord of the Rings sequel.
After its conclusion in October, production will continue on the show, which is anticipated to explore the whole Lord of the Rings period for the second season is about to start.
