I looked for a newer casting thread to have replaced the one that got locked for, well, let's just leave it at that. If there already is another thread going I'm sure an admin type will move this there (and thanks on ya for that, mate!). I just have to get these three ideas out of my head before it explodes. I know for two of them it is probably too late (and one of the actors is probably too tied up with another show), but I just have this driving need to get this out of my head. So here goes: For Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan: Ruth Wilson (currently starring in His Dark Materials so is probably not available, I presume, but burn me if she isn't born to play Elaida. As I have said in many places online, this woman scares the freaking piss outta me, and has done since I first saw her on Luther years ago. She's bloody brilliant). For Padan Fain: Robert Carlyle (looks like he too is tied up, but I know nothing about that show at all. I've seen Carlyle in a bunch of things, and he has always impressed, and was probably the only good part of Once Upon A Time which I only managed to get through the first season of. Bonus: he has Fain's nose, all without prosthetics. And he can definitely do refined and friendly as well as uber-creepy, both of which are necessary for Fain/Mordeth-Fain). For Valan Luca: Bruce Campbell (Okay, yes, I know what many of you are thinking, that I have lost my bloody mind here, that this is crazy. But just stop and think about this. First, I think his looks kinda match up, although Campbell has bulked up a bit with age. And age is not something the books actually peg down for Luca if I recall correctly. And Luca is always a little over the top, a bit showy and corny. And that's definitely something Campbell can do. I'm not looking for what Bruce did in his youth, but more akin to what he was like on Burn Notice with a touch of his earlier Campbell years mixed in. This is actually one of my oldest casting notions, something I've thought since Luca was first introduced, and how I always pictured him when reading the books. And as someone who actually worked for -- and technically performed in -- a circus*, I really want Luca's circus to remain in the show if they ever get that far). So, I'm open to thoughts on these casting ideas, and hope people put forward there own. I'm not trying to get a debate started on casting that has already happened, that's done and gone and has resulted in a locked thread, so lets leave that s??t in the past, mkay? ?
This is from Kate Franz's Instagram story several days ago. It is Kate with Joe Layton and Bart Edwards (presumably, since she tagged them in it). Bart played Duny in the Witcher and stars in Young Wallander. Another cast member perhaps? Sorry it's so small. I'd make it bigger if I could. I haven't figured out how to post on here from imgur yet.
Hey y'all, what do you make of the casting announcement about Alanna and her warders? Owein is renamed as Maksim (maybe so he's not confused with Thom's nephew Owyn, would be my guess), but it seems so strange to me to cast her now. She doesn't show up till book 2 (I mean, New Spring too, but in the main sequence) and isn't really much of a factor until TSR. Seems reasonable to conclude that she'll be a bigger character in the TV show. Any theories as to what her role in season 1 might be?
