    Yeah, I was really pulling for her to be Verin.

    Also, they spelled the name wrong. It's Ila, not Illa. :tug I should know, haha

    I was hoping for Verin too, Dnae Gaidin. I'm thinking she will be Aram's mother instead and the part might be expanded a bit?

    Yeah, why would they make such a big deal if it was just a minor role?

    I was really surprised by the announcements. I guess I just assumed she would be an important Aes Sedai.

    And for some reason thought Daryl McCormack was a different character that was already announced? :scratch Was I dreaming?

    You know who I just realized I always pictured as Verin? Kate Mulgrew.

    Kate Mulgrew would be an amazing Verin.

    Captain Janeway ftw.

    What about Margo Martindale? I was inspired by another movie I was discussing. This is pretty close to how I imagine Verin:

    I've been trying to not get my hopes up by avoiding all but major casting news. However, I have to echo everyone's disappointment of Kennedy's casting as well. I was really hoping she would be our Siuan.

    Verin's always described as "small" and "bird-like," so I always pictured someone very petite. Maybe someone like Leslie Caron...
