News culture “My bank accounts have been hacked” This actor from the series The Rings of Power has been through hell!
One of the actors of the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power lived through real hell.
Released at the end of the year 2022it was difficult to miss the series Amazon The Lord of the Rings : Rings of Power as it was a great event for fans of the license. Alas, despite the monstrous production cost, this production was not unanimously accepted by the spectators. To illustrate this disappointment of the fans, we can see that the average of the notes of the Net surfers is 38%, against 61% of the press. Many are still waiting for the next season to find out if this production will finally charm them. Alas, the filming currently underway is going through a series of galleys: accusation of animal abuse following the death of a horse and a fire that broke out in the Amazon de Bray studios… It makes you wonder if the rest of the series will indeed see the light of day if other incidents of the kind occur.
An actor victim of harassment
One of the actors of the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power admitted, in the Just for Variety podcast, to having suffered a lot of harassment, even before the production even saw the light of day. It is Ismael Cruz Cordova who embodies the elf Arondir, who received a lot of racist messages on the Internet during the filming. Death threats, repeated hacks, it was too much for the actor.
This had a psychological and mental impact. It’s something I talk about very openly so people understand that what they do and say online really hurts people and impacts us.
My phone has been hacked. My bank account has been hacked. My PayPal account has been hacked. My friends have received messages. I received death threats. They sent me things by post. People found out my address. There have been many things like that.
The production had to call on a this name is the same to help him in this difficult ordeal, and this intervention proved to be beneficial! His mere presence seemed to soothe him:
I loved seeing her there, even though we weren’t speaking. I knew there was someone who saw me completely. It wasn’t just as an actor.
After these statements, he explained how much this role was close to his heart. It should be known that it does not have, at the base, not selected for the rolebut managed to convince the producers to reverse their decision.
I grew up with this rejection around me. And that’s something that motivates me. I wasn’t going to take “no” for an answer because I knew what this role would entail. I knew what it would bring fantasy-wise. I knew I wanted to be part of something historic, especially with the elves. Elves have historically been portrayed as white and Aryan. I wanted to be an elf. I was a mountain man (who grew up in Puerto Rico). I was in love with nature and I knew it would change things.
