Elijah Wood and original ‘Lord of the Rings’ cast shut down racist critics of ‘Rings of Power’
“I fought so hard for this role for this very reason,” he said. “I felt that I could carry that torch. I made sure that my elf was the most Elven, the most incredible, because I knew this was coming.”
“People of color exist in the world. And so I find it utter madness that we don’t or couldn’t exist within the world of fantasy, of all places.”
“This idea that anyone could know exactly what (Tolkien) would’ve wanted or what he would’ve liked is, I feel, nonsense,” she said.
Córdova thanked Astin and Wood for supporting the cast of “Rings of Power.”
