Post by Voronwë the Faithful »

Here is the list of the main known characters and the actors playing them. Any additions or corrections, post below and I'll update the list. The only actor that I included without a character is Joseph Mawle since he is reputed to play a main bad guy, but no other information has been provided.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit I can't tell in all cases, but which are authentic Tolkien characters, which are invented for the show, and which are ambiguous?

The clearly authentic Tolkien characters are:

Galadriel
Gil-galad
Isildur
Elendil
Celebrimbor

The ones that are somewhat ambiguous are;

Míriel (since she was never called "Queen Regent" so far as I can call)
Pharazon (to the extent that they don't call him Ar-Pharazôn, though I think that remains to be seen)
The two Durin's (to the extent that they should not be alive at the same time)

All the rest are newly invented characters, though "The Stranger" (or perhaps another character) may turn out to be Sauron, the Balrog known as Durin's Bane or some other character created by Tolkien. And most of the rest of the names are at least somewhat olkienesque.
