Five new castings announced, today!

Rand, Mat, Perrin, Egwene, and Nynaeve.

Not at all what I pictured for any of them, to be honest...but I'll withhold judgment until I see the finished product! Excited that it is being made at all.

ANY show will work after that!

But I've seen an even more awful book-to-show adaptation and I can't believe I watched a part of it, and I won't even name it again lest it reappear beside me.

Casting is good for me. Nothing too perfect, but they all seem to have this inner spirit of their roles. Like I could already sense this anger from the Nynaeve actress, and a rogue-ness in Mat's appearance. And the Perrin actor already seems a bit too mopey - but yeah, he is mopey. Rand's actor seems a bit too bland, but we will have to see. Boils down to direction.

I tried to post pics of all the actors and their roles. But we aren't allowed to use the image feature anymore? Where was that announcement and who decided that?

I'd rather not have that feature than have to look at the stupid images you post lol.

On topic, I am really looking forward to see trailers or footage for this show.

I feel like carnival row was a bit of a letdown.

Hopefully this can rival game of thrones and become as mainstream and popular.

Is this really the expectation? I haven't been following closely but I'm keeping expectations low hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

It is what I am hoping for. But my expectation is that it will only be watchable for fans of the books and other extremely forgiving viewers..
