The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is still dominating headlines as each episode releases. Between the timeline, the costumes, and iconic scenery, there is always something to discuss. I couldn’t help but realize that there are a lot of familiar faces in Amazon’s new adaptation, so obviously I had to do some digging. Here is where you’ve seen these Rings of Power actors before!
1. Morfydd Clark, “Galadriel”
Turning heads with her iconic performance as Galadriel, Morfydd Clark has quite a background. You may recognize her from the 2020 Netflix adaptation of Dracula! The Rings of Power actress portrays Mina Harker in the horror television adaptation of Stoker’s iconic novel.

Did your childhood flash before your eyes when Ismael Córdova popped up on your screen? It should have! The Rings of Power actor gained national attention playing Mando on Sesame Street. You might also recognize Córdova from The Mandalorian as he had a brief role in “Chapter 6: The Prisoner” portraying Qin.
