The fantasy train headed to TV is headed to our living rooms in the coming year or two, and one of the big contenders on its way is Amazon Prime Video’s adaptation of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time novel series.  A couple of months back, it was announced that Rosamund Pike would be leading the show as the character Moiraine, and now, five more names have been announced to be joining her.

The announcement came courtesy of the official Amazon Prime Video Wheel of Time account, and it was accompanied by a series of headshots of the actors.

First up, we have Josha Stradowski (Just Friends (2018)) as Rand Al’Thor.

Next, we have Marcus Rutherford (Obey) as Perrin Aybara.

Up next is Zoë Robins (Power Rangers Ninja Steel) as Nynaeve.

Barney Harris (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) will be playing Mat Cauthon.

Finally, we have Madeleine Madden (Dora and the Lost City of Gold) as Egwene Al’Vere.

I’ll admit, I don’t really know much about these actors. For the most part, they seem to be young, up-and-coming talent, so it’s hard to gauge whether or not they’re right for the role in terms of acting. That being said, I’m sure plenty of you Wheel of Time readers will have opinions of how they fit in physically in their roles.

So what do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
