Full spoilers for the first season of The Rings of Power follow. Potential spoilers for Season 2 are also coming.
Celebrimbor actor Charles Edwards wants season two of The Rings of Power to introduce a deep dwarf character – and later explore their friendship in more detail.
Speaking exclusively to ahead of Episode 8 of The Rings of Power, Edwards revealed how thrilled he would be if the next entry in the high-fantasy Prime Video series included another dwarf from the Second Age of Middle-earth. The individual in question? Narvi, who shares a close friendship with Celebrimbor after the pair worked together on the Doors of Durin, the famous western gate of Khazad-dûm.
This entrance was built by the two smiths in the Second Age, allowing travel and trade routes between Khazad-dum and Eregion during a prosperous period in elven and dwarven relations. However, it was sealed during the War of the Elves and Sauron, ending the ties of the realms. In the Third Age, it becomes the entry point for Frodo and company to enter the Mines of Moria in the Fellowship of the Ring.
Fans of The Lord of the Rings already know that the second season of The Rings of Power will mark the live-action debut of another elf character. That individual is Círdan the Shipwright, one of the oldest elves in existence, who was given one of the titular Rings of Power. Cirdan will surely receive one of these gems after the three elven rings were forged at the end of The Rings of Power season 1.
Understandably, Edwards is excited to see Cirdan introduced in a live-action capacity. However, he would be just as excited, if not more so, to see Narvi make his debut on the TV show The Lord of the Rings. In the source material, there’s little mention of the pair’s close bond, so seeing another dwarven elven friendship through Celebrimbor and Narvi on screen would be fascinating.

As exciting as Narvi’s involvement in The Rings of Power season 2 is, Edwards isn’t sure the dwarf character would be able to appear in the next batch of episodes of the Prime Video show. Mostly, a lot would depend on whether the show’s writers and Amazon have the rights to bring Narvi into the fold.
“This one [Narvi’s introduction] that would be great,” Edwards said. “I mean, if the rights allow it, I don’t know. I don’t remember when Narvi is mentioned, or if he is allowed to participate.
“But I think the creation of the doors [of Durin] it will be a wonderful thing, however fleeting it may be. Many people don’t know who Celebrimbor really is, but they do know The Lord of the Rings, and they know the doors of the Fellowship of the Ring. So that would be really cool – and Celebrimbor’s name is also on the door, so yeah, the introduction of Narvi would be really cool to explore.”
