Famed Maltese content creator, SFX, and make-up artist Henry Galea is making it on the big screen!  

A creation from Henry’s mind has come to fruition and made it into Amazon’s highly anticipated Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power series.

The gruesome-looking evil beings are part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s quintessential Lord of the Rings (LOTR) fantasy world. 

Henry’s travels to Las Vegas last year saw him meet up with the series’ production team, who hinted at his involvement in curating a new look for an orc character in the production. 

After going back and forth between the drawing board to the production team, the orcs’ new look was revealed ahead of its inclusion in the new LOTR: The Rings of Power series, set to premiere in September.

The artist took to social media to reveal the final look. 

“It’s finally up! #PROUDMOMENT seeing my work for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: The Rings Of Power going live! Couldn’t be happier with how the makeup look turned out! Prime Video, thank you for believing enough in me and my work to trust me with this task!”, Henry captioned the post. 

The Prime Video show is set thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

This is ranked as the most expensive television series ever made.

Great job, Henry!
