Who Could Be This Enigmatic Mysterious Stranger?
Speculations are flooded on the internet and the most highly speculated theory is that this stranger could be none other than the most appealing and compelling wizard in the Lord of Rings: Rings of Power, Gandalf.
As this series is revolving around the novel written by J R R Tolkien, this strange character could be Gandalf because as well are aware that this iconic wizard was one of the Maiar of Valinor. These people, the angelic beings, are capable of incarnating human forms and they are named respectively as Olorin.
The important point to be noted here is that events are not taking place according to the lore of Tolkien’s timeline and the creativity that is embedded in the book. So as per the series, these events happening after a long time since Gandalf arrived.
So Olorin once took the form of Gandalf the Grey and he was one of the five wizards who was delegated on a mission. Furthermore, the actor’s shabby and raggedy appearance, the magical powers he possesses, and his scintillating wit to communicate even with the insects only add credence to the idea that the stranger is somehow connected to Gandalf or he is the next adapted version of Gandalf’s origins.
The motive behind his unexpected arrival would be to help inhabitants of that land from Sauron. Nevertheless, there could be another assumption that the stranger might be, perhaps Saruman the white or Radagast the brown. Whoever might be the person behind this incarnation, he would lend a hand in the fight against the diabolical Sauron.

Daniel Weyman is the man behind this character The Stranger. Without any doubt, he has pulled off this character way beyond expressing it through words. With his unapologetic talents in living like each character that he played, this character would stand alone in his crown.
His shabby and ragged appearance and the acting skills that he has depicted in the episodes have left a thunderous effect on every audience. With his perspicacity and shrewdness in every role that he has acted this character would be quite way too different and enrapturing.
Daniel Weyman is best and popularly recognized and known for his inexplicable role as Max Thorndyke in the BBC crime drama ‘Silent Witness.
As he got this golden opportunity to play a crucial role in this highly acclaimed series, Weyman fervently told that “ I would think, hopefully, people will have as much fun watching his story as I had to film it.
And I suppose the best thing to say is that while we were working, I, at each point in the story, knew exactly where the character was and who he was and what he was going through. So, from my point of view, it was quite an easy task to follow that through”.
