The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins took to Instagram to share a photo of cast in Prague. This marks the first time we’ve seen the actors for the Amazon fantasy adaptation gathered in one place. The series is expected to start shooting soon and production has already begun in Prague.
Judkins used lines from the opening of the Robert Jordan novel as a caption to the picture, “There are neither beginnings nor endings to the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning… meet the cast of the Wheel of Time :)”
In the picture, from left to right are Barney Harris (Mat Cauthon), Madeleine Madden (Egwene Al’Vere), Zoe Robin (Nyneave) Marcus Rutherford (Perrin Aybarra), Rosamund Pike (Moirane), Josha Stradowski (Rand) and Daniel Henney (Lan).
The Wheel of Time is based on Robert Jordan’s fantasy series spanning 14 books. The final three books in the series were written by fantasy author Brandon Sanderson after Jordan’s passing. It is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. Meaning that in this series — women hold the keys to power. The story follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the ‘Aes Sedai’ as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine is interested in these five because she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it.
Executive producer/showrunner Rafe Judkins adapted the novels for television. Executive producers also include Larry Mondragon and Rick Selvage of Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures, Darren Lemke, Marigo Kehoe and Uta Briesewitz. Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal and Sanderson will serve as consulting producers.
