The Tolkien adaptation "The Rings of Power" has started on Amazon's streaming service with great interest from viewers. Even before the release of the "Lord of the Rings" series, a second season was confirmed by Amazon - in total there should be five at the end. Speaking to Time, series co-creators J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay that viewers will only see a particular fan favorite among the elves in the already confirmed second installment of the fantasy series. We're talking about Círdan the Shipwright.
Last but not least, that facial hair seems to have always fascinated Tolkien readers about Círdan. In Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" films he is seen briefly at the beginning of the prologue to the Battle of the Last Alliance against Sauron. At the end of the trilogy, he stands behind Elrond and Galadriel a second time, when they set off for the Elven kingdom of Valinor with Frodo, Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins. In both sequences, however, he does not wear a beard. However, since showrunner Payne now explicitly mentions Círdan's beard, it can be assumed that the Elf will wear one in the second season of "The Rings of Power".
In Tolkien's fantasy world, Círdan is the lord of the Gray Havens. It is from this port city in the Kingdom of Lindon that the Elves of Middle-earth travel to the Undying Lands. This was also seen in the premiere episode of "The Rings of Power". The main character Galadriel (Morfydd Clark, 33) is here with her battle group by ship to the area also called Valinor, before she changes her mind at the last second and goes overboard.
