As the new Lord of the Rings series ‘The Rings of Power’ is set for an Amazon September premiere, a Maltese makeup artist’s take on one of the characters took social media by storm.
Henry Galea, known for his TikTok and Instagram videos bringing characters to life, was asked by Prime Video’s team to create one of the iconic designs for the malicious race of orcs in the series.

Galea’s talent was picked up whilst he was involved with the ACM Awards in Las Vegas. They promptly urged him not to post any Rings of Power related content before they reached out to him to ask him to create one of the many designs.
After some tweaking and a lot of creative work, Galea’s design was released to the world and promptly featured on posters shown worldwide. Following strict guidelines, Galea had came up with a design for what is the next massive instalment in the J.R.R Tolkien adaptations.
Amazon bought the TV rights for The Lord of the Rings for around $250 million in 2017, committing to a five season worth at least $1 billion. This makes it the most expensive television series ever made.
