    Description
    She is slender and barely taller than Mat's shoulder (about 5'4"). She has deep brown eyes and she wears her long dark hair in a braid, which is cut short much later in the series.

    Leigh Butler at Tor.com suggested Emma Stone:

    Elgee at Dragonmount put forth Zoey Francis Thompson Deutch, who's actually 23 years old and is 5'4", so that's pretty spot-on. Also, from this shot of her, she looks pretty Nynaeve-y.

    So, unlimited budget, anyone in the world. Who would you pick to do Nynaeve justice?

    With darker hair, she would be a perfect Nynaeve! Emma Stone . . . not so much.

    I'm just here to say that Nynaeve al'Mera is my favorite and if they do her dirt I will never forgive them.
