Ema Horvath has revealed that appearing alongside an all-star cast in The Lord of the Rings: The Power Rings was like going “back to her days as a theater company”.
The 28-year-old actress will play the character Eärien, a second-aged lady, in the highly anticipated Amazon Prime series, which begins Friday September.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline at the series’ world premiere in London, Horvath said she learned a lot about the craft of acting from her co-stars.
EXCLUSIVE: Ema Horvath has revealed that appearing alongside an all-star cast in Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power was like a throwback to her theater troupe days.
“It was amazing because we were 22-23 and it was like going back to the theater company days,” Horvath began.
“And everyone has a different acting background in some way, so you learn for everyone.”
The series stars include Sir Lenny Henry, Morfydd Clark and Cynthia Addai-Robinson.

She added that when she landed the coveted role on the series, she had only a “superficial” understanding of the Tolkien universe, but “dived in” as soon as she landed the part.
“I had a very superficial understanding of this when I got the job,” admitted Horvath.
“I had done a play [played] Bombur the Dwarf, I knew The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings but it wasn’t until I got the job that I really got into it.”
She added that she was “relieved” to land the role after waiting three weeks for a response from producers.
“It was amazing because we were 22-23 and it was like going back to the theater company days,” said Horvath
The Rings of Power was adapted from JRR Tolkien’s book of origin stories entitled The Silmarillion, edited and published posthumously by his son Christopher Tolkien in 1977.
The $450 million eight-part prequel series from JD Payne and Patrick McKay will stream its first two episodes on September 2nd.
Originally played by two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett in the Peter Jackson films, Morfydd Clark took on the role of the most beautiful royal elf Galadriel in the TV spin-off.
In the trailer, Galadriel is a sword-wielding commander who urges her soldiers to “keep moving” and fight beasts.

“There’s a storm raging inside me,” Galadriel says menacingly in the preview. ‘Without [my sword]what should I be?’
“It’s been really exciting to explore how they become who they are known to be,” Morfydd told TheWrap last week.
‘There [is a line] Galadriel talks at one point about how with wisdom comes a loss of innocence, and that’s what I really focused on – that she needs to lose some innocence, she needs to gain some wisdom to become the Lady of Lothlórien that we know her to be be.’
Clark added, “I’m really looking forward to my friends and family seeing it. Everyone on this show has been separated [in New Zealand] from those they loved. And so that you can see what I’m actually up to, I’m really looking forward to it.’
