Full spoilers for The Rings of Power season 1 follow. Potential spoilers for Season 2 are also on the way.
Celebrimbor actor Charles Edwards wants The Rings of Power season 2 to introduce a low-cut dwarf character – and then explore their friendship in more detail.
Speaking exclusively to TechRadar ahead of Episode 8 of The Rings of Power, Edwards revealed how excited he would be if the next entry in the Prime Video high-fantasy series featured another dwarf from the second age of Middle-earth. The person in question? Narvi, who forms a close friendship with Celebrimbor after the duo worked together on the Doors of Durin, the famed western gate of Khazad-dûm.
This entrance was built by the two blacksmiths in the Second Age and provided travel and trade routes between Khazad-dûm and Eregion during a flourishing period of elven and dwarven relations. However, it was sealed during the War of the Elves and Sauron, ending the kingdoms’ bonds. In the Third Age, it becomes the entry point for Frodo and his companions to enter the Mines of Moria in The Fellowship of the Ring.
Lord of the Rings fans already know that The Rings of Power Season 2 will mark the live-action debut of another elf character. This person is Cirdan the Shipwright, one of the oldest elves in existence, who holds one of the title rings of power. Cirdan will most certainly receive one of these trinkets after forging the three elven rings in The Rings of Power Season 1 finale.
Edwards is understandably excited to see Cirdan’s introduction to a live-action capacity. However, he would be just as excited, if not more so, to see Narvi make her debut on the Lord of the Rings TV show. There is little mention of the pair’s close bond in the source material, so it would be fascinating to see another elf-dwarf friendship on screen through Celebrimbor and Narvi.

As exciting as Narvi’s involvement in The Rings of Power season 2 is, Edwards isn’t sure if the dwarf character could appear in the next few episodes of the Prime Video show. First and foremost, a lot would depend on whether the show’s writers and Amazon would have the rights to bring Narvi on board.
“That [Narvi’s introduction] would be great,” Edwards said. “I mean, if the rights allow it, I don’t know. I can’t remember when Narvi is mentioned or if he’s allowed to appear in it.
“But I think the creation of the doors [of Durin] will be a wonderful thing, fleeting as it may be. A lot of people don’t know who Celebrimbor really is, but they know The Lord of the Rings and they know the doors from The Fellowship of the Ring. So it would be pretty cool – and Celebrimbor’s name is on the door too, so yeah, Narvi’s introduction would be pretty cool to explore.”
