Lord of the Rings prequel boss teases Stranger's Gandalf twist 'It's not a secret'

“And, I think, hopefully, the fact that we’ve managed to keep that to ourselves will allow people to experience it on the telly, together, every week. And that could be a really special moment.”

He added: “There’s such truth and honesty in every moment that the Stranger has that, actually, I could commit fully to those moments.

“I didn’t feel like I was tricking anybody or there was a plot device being employed. I just thought there was a true, honest depiction of a real, believable character there.”

Whether or not the Stranger is who fans believe he is, or perhaps a completely different wizard altogether, the world of Middle Earth already appears to be in very safe hands.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres Friday, September 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
