    I looked up "a;sghaeroughaoivasfg" in the old tongue dictionary in the Library. It means "I'm totally smitten" :lol

    He is super amazingly perfect and I can't wait to see him on screen. Like almost exactly how I pictured him. :yes I am ridiculously excited as I've said about 1000 times now. :lol

    there were a lot of similar comments on Facebook under the Nynaeve picture :rolleyes I cannot believe someone will not watch the show because they dont like an actor....
    I did not imagine the characters like these actors, but I am super excited to see them on screen with the make up and the clothes... I think that would give the feel of the fantasy world, regardless of their skin color

    No. I'm sorry, but no.
    Yes, I agree that the way he portrayed Aragorn was the perfect look and attitude for Lan. That's why I don't think it would be a good idea, because he wouldn't be *Lan* he would be Aragorn in WoT. It's unfortunate that his Aragorn was a perfect Lan because I don't see how Viggo could be Lan in a way that's not an Aragorn clone. It would be too jarring for me and take me right out of the story.

    Plus, I'm kind of looking forward to falling in love with some new person's Lan. :love

    I agree.

    I also agree with Dnae's analysis of Lan. Viggo would make a fantastic Lan, but only if he hadn't played Aragorn, first. I don't know who I'm hoping for, but I'm excited to see who they cast.

    Thom, too. I can't remember who I was hoping for, for Thom, but at this point, I'm just excited things are actually moving forward. I think I always suspected somehow that we'd get all this hype and nothing would come of it.

    Autumn, I've felt like that too. I've wanted a TV adaptation for so long that I've been really afraid it would all just dissipate into nothing again. To be getting such amazing castings and so much news all at once today...it's a lot to take in.

    I was just talking with a friend about this and he goes "Oh, I've met Zoe Robins! She's really nice. She was also on Power Rangers".

    I'm two degrees from the WoT cast :look
