The exact nature of Poulter's character is being kept under wraps. In this case, it led to Lord of the Rings, which is probably one of the most anticipated series of all time.

Amazon has forged Will Poulter in a number one position for his or her Lord Of The Rings sequence, in line with studies.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Will Poulter's reps for remark.

The announcement that Poulter is joining the cast follows the reports that Australian actress Markella Kavenagh has been cast as well. But Variety refers to this as a "huge win" for the actor, because this part was apparently one of the biggest gigs in town for people in his age range.

Last summer, Amazon revealed the writing team putting together the series, JD Payne and Patrick McKay, who worked on Star Trek Beyond.

The star is best known for his film appearances such as in The Revenant and Detroit. In addition, Game of Thrones alum Bryan Cogman has signed on as a consulting producer on the project with J.A. Bayona set to direct multiple episodes. He's represented by WME and Hamilton Hodell, and Variety broke the news of his casting. Writers Gennifer Hutchison ("Breaking Bad"), Jason Cahill ("The Sopranos") and Justin Doble ("Stranger Things") will also serve as executive producers, along with Lindsey Weber, Bruce Richmond, Gene Kelly and Sharon Tal Yguado. "He's a passionate and collaborative director who has brought new stories to life with his multitalented producing partner, Belen", Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, also said at the time.

The Lord of the Rings series is set in author J.R.R. Tolkien's Second Age, an era well before the events of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings. In Tolkien's mythology, the Second Age is when the Rings of Power came into existence, a few thousand years before Aragorn (the heir to the kingdom of men in The Lord of the Rings, played by Viggo Mortensen) was even born.

Two years ago Amazon announced it had won the rights to produce the series and fans have been eagerly awaiting news on the cast ever since.
