May 13, 2021
Amazon Studios has announced that Swedish-French Director Charlotte Brändström has joined the creative team of its forthcoming Amazon Original The Lord of the Rings television series.
Continuing the work of Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona and British Chinese Director Wayne Che Yip, Brändström joins the international ensemble cast, currently filming in New Zealand, to direct two episodes.
Brändström is an International Emmy Award-nominee for Julie, chevalier de Maupin. She has also directed over 30 feature films, mini-series, and movies-of-the-week including episodes of The Man in the High Castle, Outlander, The Witcher and Jupiter’s Legacy.
“I’m very excited to be guided through Middle-earth by J.D.’s and Patrick’s vision and immerse myself in the iconic world of J.R.R. Tolkien. It’s a great privilege to be in New Zealand to work with Amazon Studios’ outstanding ensemble of creative talents,” said Brändström.
“There are countless things still to see in Middle-earth, and great works to do,” she added, quoting Gimli.
