    I like this casting a lot! I've seen her in Lion and she's both beautiful and fierce! She seems to have good taste in Warders as well.

    I wonder if that's just what leaked? She's first seen in the entourage with Siuan at Fal Dara, I think that might very well happen in season 1?

    Great casting! But yeah, I'm also wondering why we are hearing about Alanna and her warders instead of Elayne/Min/Siuan, etc. I'm just trusting the process and hoping more good news will come.

    Maybe they are trying to build up an Aes Sedai presence as it is only really Moiraine and Elaida in EotW. Alanna is a pretty good choice as she is fairly prominent, as she does go to Fal Dara they could also be using her to explain how that arc comes about behind the scenes which we don't get in the book. I would like it if they kept Siuan until we get to Fal Dara as I think her entrance/the mystery around the Amyrlin Seat is cool.

    I think you're probably right, Leo Sedai. The Aes Sedai are a big deal but you don't really realize how big until Fal Dara. But with TV they need to hook you early so you keep watching.

    My theory is that Alanna will be mixed in with the expanded Logain plotline.

    I agree, the Aes Sedai are one of the most interesting parts of the book but I think we will need to see them more than we do in EotW. Plus Alanna is one of the Aes Sedai we encounter throughout the series so it makes sense to introduce her from the start.

    I worry that they're damaging the show's chances of success because there are a lot of stupid people out there who can't recognize satire and thus won't tune in.

    Possible. Of course, I think once the show starts airing folks will get to talking about how good (or bad) it is based on its own true merits. None the less, people talking about the show (displaying their passion for the property) while we're all waiting for it to come out of development is probably a good thing.

    I think that by the time it airs, it will be pretty obvious that Kathy Griffin and Lindsay Lohan aren't in it.

    They've added 3 more to the cast via Instagram

    Jennifer Cheon Garcia Warn
    Maria doyle Kennedy
    Daryl McCormack

    No announcement on who they're cast as but I'm hoping Maria is Siuan and Jennifer is Leane!

    Edit: Actually I hope Maria is Verin

    Oh and looking at Twitter Kate Fleetwood has announced she's been cast as Liandrin.

    She's holding a script like Jennifer is in her announcement, so looks legit.

    Daryl McCormack totally looks like Perrin. But wasn't Perrin casted yet?
