‘Wheel of Time’ Casting Update

Entertainment Television

I still have very high hopes for the upcoming Wheel of Time television show on Amazon Prime. This past summer, Amazon announced casting for the Emond’s Field crew. Now, they’ve announced a new batch of actors playing more of the show’s core characters. Let’s take a look.

If you’re not familiar with the Wheel of Time book series, you may not know these characters. But those of us who’ve read all fourteen books are sure to know them.

Moirane’s warder Lan will be played by Daniel Henney. I’d never envisioned the character as Asian, but now that I’m seeing it, I’m completely on board. Daniel played Agent Zero in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine.

Rand’s father Tam will be played by Michael McElhatton, who played Roose Bolton on HBO’s A Game of Thrones.

Logain Ablar, the menacing figure with a destiny, will be played by Álvaro Morte.

And Loial the oghier will be played by a heavily CG modified Hammed Animashaun.

Beyond that, there are a few more characters whom you may or may not know that have been cast.

Alanna, Ihvon, and Maksim

Priyanka Bose plays the Aes Sedai Alanna, and Emmanuel Imani plays her warder Ihvon. Lastly, Taylor Napier plays another warder named Maksim.

Amazon has yet to announce when the Wheel of Time television show will go live. But given how big a fan of the books I am, you can be sure that GeekDad will have an announcement for you as soon as the information is available.

  1. Do you have specific confirmation that Loial will be done by CG effects? I was assuming that the hiring of Nick Dudman, who has strong background prosthetic effects, suggested that Loial, the Trollocs, etc, would be mostly practical effects, rather than CGI stuff.
