“He’s got this kind of elvish spidey sense of the impending rebirth of evil,” Walker said.”He always sees it a second before. So when we find him at the beginning of season one, he’s in a time of peace. But for Gil-galad, that means something entirely different. That peace and liberty require constant vigilance. “

He continued, “And I think he’s playing the long chess game of the preservation of Middle-earth. He’s got this connection with the life force of Middle-earth, almost as if he can feel the tentacles of evil slithering beneath the crust of Middle-earth. And he knows it’s there.

He has to let his own world have a life of its own. He must let go, as a parent does. The ultimate last loving thing is to let them go out on their own and to trust that they will do the right thing. And that they will know what that thing is. And I think that’s why these characters that Tolkien has created continue to evolve. Otherwise, he’s just this prescient ruler who’s got a lot of experience and can kick ass when he needs to. He’s constantly evolving,” the actor said.
