Rings Of Power’s Nazanin Boniadi Weighs In On The Elves’ Occupation Of The Southlands

Earlier in the summer, we initially talked to Nazanin Boniadi and Ismael Cruz Córdova (who play Bronwyn and the Elf Arondir, respectively) about the state of affairs in the Southlands, and they brought up a “huge power dynamic” between their characters’ peoples. When we caught up with them just before the premiere, we followed up on the conversation, digging into the complexities of human-Elvish politics in the Southlands. One specific question we asked was if Elves are perceived as legitimate “bad guys” in the region since, you know, they’re watching over its inhabitants, occupation style. Nazanin Boniadi’s response helped clear things up a bit.

“It’s less about being the bad guys — it’s more about being the occupiers, or like, ‘Just let us be. Our ancestors did something, it’s been hundreds of years. Let it go.'” The actress went on to clarify the importance of immortal verses mortal worldviews: “What we forget is that the human perception of time is so different from the Elven perception of time, because they’re immortal and we’re not. What to us is, ‘Oh, that was ages ago,’ is fresh in the minds of the Elves. With that comes this source of conflict of, ‘Let that go. It was a long time ago,’ and for them, it’s very, very new.”

It’s good to know that relations between Elves and humans haven’t completely deteriorated, since the impending arrival of the new Dark Lord, Sauron, will require a union of all of the free peoples of Middle-earth to stop him … a Last Alliance, perhaps? The question is, how many of the Southlanders will be in that group?

“Rings of Power” airs weekly on Fridays at 12 a.m. ET for the remainder of its eight-episode first season.
