Fresh on board, mostly from New Zealand, are: Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Power), Maxim Baldry (Strike Back), Ian Blackburn, Kip Chapman, Anthony Crum, Maxine Cunliffe, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Thusitha Jayasundera, Fabian McCallum (Knightfall), Simon Merrells, Geoff Morrell, Peter Mullan (Westworld), Lloyd Owen, Augustus Prew, Peter Tait (The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King), Alex Tarrant, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker (Marvels Jessica Jones) and Sara Zwangobani.
Some of them are known from other series and films such as Maxim Baldry or Peter Mullan, but there are also a lot of not so familiar faces. They are (of course) still silent about their roles. In addition to New Zealand, the international cast also comes from Australia, Sri Lanka, the UK and the USA.
++ News from December 3rd, 2020: Now and then lets Amazon times a reference to that The wheel of timeSeries fall. Usually this is done via Twitteras is the case again this time. The focus of the current teaser is the making of a sword. As readers will recognize from the insignia, this is a sword of the swordmasters.
The sword masters are described in the novel as particularly well trained fighters who have perfected the handling of the sword. In the comments, those responsible wrote a quote from the novels, which says that Tam received this sword a long time ago and in a distant place.
When is the first “real” teaser out The wheel of time to be seen is difficult to imagine. So far, the series has largely flown under the radar and is hardly advertised. Only tweets like the current one draw attention to the fantasy adaptation here and there.
The series is scheduled to be published at Amazon prime in 2021. But no details are available yet.
