Nazanin Boniadi’s character in Rings of Power is one of the most beloved in the show. The How I Met Your Mother actress played the mother to Theo while having a forbidden romance with the Elf warrior, Aron Dir. 

Boniadi’s announcement comes after the actress took to her Instagram to share that she is stepping away from acting for a while. In 2022, the Couterpart star shared, “I stepped away from acting in September 2022 to focus solely on the #WomanLifeFreedom uprising in Iran and to advocate for the people of my homeland who have been risking everything for freedom.”

The actress further added, “Despite my passion for acting, I knew it would take a very special project to convince me to once again split my time between my day job and my calling as an activist. A Mosquito in the Ear is that project. A beautiful adventure that we can’t wait to share with you.”


In the first part's season finale, Bronwyn, Theo, and Arondir played no roles. Hence, clues about the show's upcoming plot were revealed in this episode.
