Amazon is hard at work working on its series adaptation for The Wheel of Time. Now, they’ve added five more names to the cast list for fans to enjoy. Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) has been cast in the role of Amyrlin Seat Siuan Sanche. Meanwhile, Kae Alexander (Game of Thrones) will play Min Farshaw. In addition, the following actors will play recurring roles: Kate Fleetwood as Liandrin Guirale, Peter Franzen as Stepin, and Clare Perkins as Kerene Nagashi.
Based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling fantasy novels, “The Wheel of Time” is set in a high fantasy world where magic exists, but only certain women are allowed to access it. The story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn (Josha Stradowski), a powerful individual who will either save humanity or destroy it.
The series showrunner is Rafe Judkins, and Uta Briesewitz is set to direct the first two episodes. There’s no release date yet.
