That is not Liandrin like at all in this universe or any of the others. Did they add 20 years to her age??

Yeah, clearly her character description was  just flat out ignored for some reason. Which I don’t get.

I’m okay with these choices, most are unknowns so it’s very much a ‘wait and see’ in terms of how they actually portray the characters 

Whoa, I love this casting! My fears were unfounded after the Nope Moiraine casting. Nyn and Eggy are so pretty 😮 Perrin doesn’t look like he fell on his head as a child... which is what I was worrying

I told my boyfriend I'm totally hate watching this show. I don't usually think of myself as being super anal but I have no clue what is going on with this show...and if they're combining the first two books? Sounds like a mess.

I intend to at least start watching this show, but I'm not going to go in with any kind of hopes. I'm largely indifferent  towards the casting so far, but I'm also not one of the sort who necessarily wants actors to resemble the characters physically.

Fingers crossed, but not holding my breath.

If nothing else, finding out people know something about WoT is kind of interesting among my friends.

Did we discuss  Alexandre Willaume being cast as Thom. I don't know him from anything, and he doesn't look at all like how I pictured. He looks a bit more soldiery to me than like a high court bard. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

So at first I was like, they are just choosing the best actor for the role (except Pike since she picked herself...) but now it feels like they are deliberately trying to be "woke" which makes the whole thing feel disingenuous.

I don't really want to comment on the "woke" side of it, I just...some of the casting choices I don't understand at all. And I don't think they had the actors audition against one another, which makes me wonder about how well they'll actually gel together as a cast once on screen.

I fully acknowledge my beef with the Siuan casting is entirely based on a bad Tumblr experience where these peeps insisted she and all the other poor people from Tear were clearly black because they were poor and mistreated and got upset when I quoted her actual pale ass description (after someone asked what the books actually said, so it's not like I was raining on their stupid parade). 

 

Anyway I just hate the idea of those specific people feeling validated. #petty

I think it helps when you know an actress, and feel like they could master the character. Which I feel for Sophie Okonedo, but don't feel at all for Rosamund Pike. The rest I just don't know enough to judge.

I I I love Sophie Okonedo. No fake woke just adoration. I wish she was cast as Moiraine actually, since she’s a Shakespearean actress, but Pike picked for herself. 👀

it’d be really interesting if the casting was switched. Pike as Siuan. 
 

The tumblr people saying everyone from Tear has to be dark skinned makes me want to set fire to the tumblr app.
