Full spoilers for the first season of The Rings of Power. There are also potential spoilers for Season 2.
Celebrimbor actor Charles Edwards wants Season 2 of The Rings of Power to introduce a deeply sculpted dwarf figure and then explore their friendship in more detail.
Speaking exclusively to TechRadar ahead of Episode 8 of The Rings of Power, Edwards revealed how delighted he would be if the next entry in the High Definition Prime Video series featured another dwarf from the Second Age of Middle-earth. The person in question? Narvi, who shares a close friendship with Celebrimbor after the duo worked together at the Durin Door, the famous Khazad-dûm West Gate.
This entrance was built by two blacksmiths in the Second Age, allowing travel and trade routes between Khazad-dûm and Eregion during the period of prosperity in elven and dwarven relations. However, it was sealed during the War of the Elves and Sauron, thus ending the bonds of the kingdoms. In the Third Age, it becomes the entry point for Frodo and the company to the Mine of Moria in The Fellowship of the Ring.
Lord of the Rings fans already know that the second season of The Rings of Power will be another elf’s acting debut. This person is Cirdan the Shipwright, one of the oldest elves in existence, who is endowed with one of the eponymous Rings of Power. Cirdan is sure to receive one of these jewelry after forging three elven rings in the finale of the first season of The Rings of Power.
Understandably, Edwards is excited to see Cirdan’s acting role. However, he would be just as delighted, if not more, to see Narvi making his debut on The Lord of the Rings TV show. There is little mention in the source material of the couple’s close bond, so it would be fascinating to see another dwarf-elf friendship through Celebrimbor and Narvi on screen.

Exciting as Narvi’s involvement in Season 2 of The Rings of Power would be, however Edwards is not sure if the dwarf character would be able to appear in the next batch of Prime Video episodes. First of all, a lot would depend on whether the show’s writers and Amazon have the right to bring Narvi into the fold.
“This [Narvi’s introduction] it would be great, Edwards said. “I mean, whether the laws allow it, I don’t know.” I don’t remember when Narvi was mentioned or if he was allowed to be in it.
“But I think creating a door [of Durin] it will be a wonderful thing, however fleeting it may be. Many people do not know who Celebrimbor really is, but they do 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 as well, so yeah, introducing Narvi would be pretty cool to discover. “
