Thanks for your estimate ... & curious question

In Reply To
Mawle was exceptional as the evil Inspector Shine on RIPPER STREET. He is one of those actors who steals every scene he is in making himself the focus of it. If he is playing Sauron, it is a stroke of genius.

I haven't seen the series/movie myself - it is great to hear that Mr. Mawle is capable of such mesmerizing/captivating acting.

There's still this one aspect I'm worried about though. I think the actor handsome, yes. But he has a certain shrewd/sly look I'm not sure would lend itself to the pretense of innocent goodness. Once Sauron's evil is revealed, yes, perfect casting. But as long as he's still trying to hide it ... if Annatar doesn't instantly appear to me as a viewer as super-good-guy, why would I buy that he fools the ever-so-wise elves, if he is really putting all his effort into taking on a harmless, beautiful shape?

Of the presented cast, I'd think the one that's most this "I'm so noble believe me" type would be Daniel Weyman.

(If Mr. Mawle is playing Sauron, I wonder if they could do some subtle changes via make up or CGI that fall away once Sauron's evil is revealed ... that might also be interesting ...)

What do you (or others) think about how well Mr. Mawle is able to portray thoroughly innocent goodness? As I said, never watched anything from him ... would be pleased to hear you think he could nail that, too.
