Amazon's THE WHEEL OF TIME Adaptation Rounds Out Its Cast With Five Up-And-Comers

We recently learned that Rosamund Pike would star in Amazon's small screen adaptation of Robert Jordan's sprawling series of fantasy novels as Moiraine, and now her supporting cast has been announced...

J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings is widely considered to be the greatest fantasy tale of all time, but for many, Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time would be part of the conversation.

Late last year it was announced that The Wheel of Time had been ordered to series at Amazon, and news broke recently that Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Jack Reacher, Die Another Day) had been cast in the lead role of Moiraine Damodred. Now, we know which actors will be joining her as the young men and women who “embark on a dangerous, world-spanning journey."

Madeleine Madden (Tidelands) will star as Egwene Al’Vere; Marcus Rutherford (Obey) as Perrin Aybara; Barney Harris (Clique) as Mat Cauthon; Zoë Robins (Power Rangers) as Nynaeve; and Josha Stradowski (Just Friends) as Rand Al’Thor.

Character description were not provided, but the show's official Twitter account did share some cast portraits which you can check out below.

Are you looking forward to The Wheel of Time? Sound off in the comments.

Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine, a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers. There, she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity.
