The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is based on J.R.R. Tolkien's books centered on Middle-earth and Galadriel, an elf, is one of the main characters of the lore. However, it seems as if the series would have changes on how the character was written.

This has been revealed by the actress who plays Galadriel, Morfydd Clark, in an interview with ComicBook.com, "It definitely surprised me because I thought I was a fan. I'd read The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, seen the films, but I had no idea about the First and Second Age. That was really kind of exciting to kind of learn all this extra stuff about this world that I loved."

Clark added how Galadriel grows through life in the series, "I think it's really interesting that she is so conflicted and going through so much because I feel the people in my life who ended up the most kind of chill and serene as Galadriel... have usually been through a lot."

Clark teased what the series holds for Galadriel, "It was interesting to work with the opposites, you know? How far can she go from what we know she will become?"

As there are only a few days left before the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Amazon Prime Video, it is only a matter of time before everyone would be as surprised as Clark as to how different Galadriel is in the series from the books of Tolkien.
