Actor Viggo Mortensen, who famously played Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings movies, has said he plans to watch the upcoming Amazon series and he’s excited by it. However, the actor said he’s also feeling cautious because he’s not sure how much of the wider fiction it will incorporate.
Speaking to GQ, Mortensen said Lord of the Rings TV director J.A. Bayona is a “good director” so he’s keen to watch it for that reason alone. But he wonders if the Tolkien Estate might have limited what Amazon could show and use for the series.
“I’m interested to see what they do. They’ve been shooting that in New Zealand. Bayona is a good director, so it’ll probably be worth watching,” he said. “I’ll be curious to see what they do, how they interpret Tolkien. I don’t know how much the Tolkien Estate has allowed them to use.”
