by on Jan.13, 2015, under Television

John Rhys-Davies, who has graced screens in a variety of genre roles and most famously as Gimli and Treebeard in The Lord Of The Rings, will go back to the fantasy realm as King Eventine, the patriarch in Shannara, MTV’s scripted series based on Terry Brooks’ novel The Elfstones of Shannara, the second in the series.

The Shannara stories are based hundreds of years in the future in a post-apocalyptic Earth that has reverted to medieval times and in which magic has re-emerged. The most recent book, The High Druid’s Blade, was release this past July and is the first of a new trilogy, The Defenders of Shannara.

Production is expected to begin next month in New Zealand.
