    Spoiler, just in case you haven't finished reading.
    It can't be Sean Bean because he doesn't die.

    I really hope Maria Doyle Kennedy is Verin. Nothing else makes sense. They have cast a really young looking Leane after all, so her being Siuan seems weird.

    I hoped they would give us more driplets since they talked about it both because people wanted it and the lockdown. They have given us some, but mostly just confirmed stuff. I wanna know who is gonna play Siuan :|

    I hope Maria Doyle Kennedy is Siuan Sanche or even Cadsuane Melaidhrin.

    Clare Perkins plays Kerene Naga who was an Aes Sedai for well over one hundred years when she was hand-picked to become one of Tamra Ospenya's Searchers to find the Dragon Reborn after Tamra heard Gitara Moroso's Foretelling. So there will be some scenes from New Spring. Hopefully they may digital de-age some cast members like they did in Netflix's The Irishman.

    I'm doing a reread of New Spring now and that is what makes me think she won't be a good fit for Siuan. I really like her and I think she's more of a Verin. Am sure she will do amazing whoever she plays ^^

    Yeah, I have to admit, while I think she could do Suian, I'd much rather see her Verin. Just with how their timelines run, I'd like her as Verin :cheese

    The filming started around September 2019 and according to the tinterweb about 5 or 6 weeks of filming is left. If I recall 6 episodes of season 1 are done with post production special effects needing to be completed. 8 episodes in total and writing for season 2 is well under way. The house of Andor cast needs to be released along with Elaida Sedai. Min too needs to be named.

    Most of them went home when Covid hit, though Rosamund Pyke stayed in Prague as she’d moved her family there

    I know I'm late to the Maria Doyle Kennedy discussion, but I just finished Season 4 of Outlander last night, and that combined with her turn on Downton Abbey just makes me want her to be Elaida sooooooo much.

    Hard to know really so many great actors out there. Some that I think may work could do a good job with their acting abilities- a few have the addition of good looks too. Male characters: Jack Cuttmore Scott- such a talent could play good or evil, Steven Amell- Warder, Viggo Mortensen- Warder or other important role, David Eigenberg probabally a villain and Josh Halloway- Warder maybe. Females: Jennifer Morrison- Aes Sedi, Kara Killmer- novice or accepted, Lana Parrilla- Aes Sedi,Yaya Decosta- accepted or novice.

    Yeah, I'm actually kind of sad - Illa is such a small part.
