Morfydd Clark, known for her role in Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, has been cast in the upcoming revenge thriller Uncle. The film, directed by Joe Marcantonio, will also feature Eddie Marsan and Sope Dirisu.
The movie’s synopsis sets the stage for a gripping tale: “After the brutal murder of their family, barely teenage Millie and her Uncle John (Dirisu) embark on a brutal mission of revenge and retribution. But as they get closer to the people responsible, Millie must decide if she is ready to follow the bloody path of vengeance… and its violent, premature journey into adulthood.”
Co-written by Joe Marcantonio and Owynne Dawkins, the film is set to begin principal photography in the UK this autumn. Though, it’s currently unclear if the present WGA strike will impact this timeline.
Morfydd Clark, 34, expressed her excitement about the project, stating, “I’m thrilled to be working on a project so specific to rural Wales but with so much resonance with contemporary issues affecting people everywhere. The script gripped me, and working with such talented filmmakers, cast, and crew is a dream.”
Joe Marcantonio, the director, shared his enthusiasm for the cast, stating, “This really is a dream cast for me, with three of the most incredible actors around – I’m so excited for us all to get started and to bring this amazing story to life.”
Morfydd Clark Draws Parallels Between Herself and her Rings of Power Character
While Morfydd Clark takes on the role of Galadriel, a warrior, in ‘The Rings of Power,’ she drew parallels between herself and her character in the Amazon Prime fantasy series. She explained to E! News, “She has a very strong sense of justice and is quite rigid with that. And I can be a little rigid at times. I think what’s interesting about her is what drives her is kind of, is instinct. She can’t even necessarily put into words or even know herself.”
As Morfydd Clark delves into her role in ‘Uncle,’ audiences can anticipate an intense and thrilling revenge story brought to life by a talented cast and crew.
