    OMG YES. That's the vibe I see to, perfectly. Stone cold, hyper intellectual, still on the team of good, but I just want to kick her down the stairs. LOL.

    I love the choice for Siuan. Sophie Okonedo is a great actress! :joy

    I haven't heard of Kae Alexander before, but she looks like she'll be a good Min! :D

    As soon as I saw Sophie's picture I was like....I know I've seen her before. I had to look up her Wiki page and scroll down to the TV section of her filmography before I realized she was Liz Ten in Doctor Who! :D No wonder she was cast for Siuan, she's already been "the bloody Queen, mate." :p

    Sophie Okonedo has a really impressive resume! I'll have to reimagine my mental blue-eyed Siuan, but I think she'll be great! Having a little harder time seeing Kae Alexander as Min, but probably because the only thing I've seen her in was Game of Thrones and she was... well green. :p

    When I looked this up, I saw two photos of them side-by-side, but they weren't captioned and I didn't know who was who. Based on their appearances, I assumed who was playing which role... and I was surprised to find out that I was wrong. I think Kae looks more like Siuan to me, and Sophie would be a good Min. I'm sure they'll do well with their roles, but I would have swapped the parts.

    Colored contacts and digital editing are both things that exist. :lol

    Blue-eyed Siuan is still doable. :)

    I recall that there is a Sedai called Kerene, but not more than that... I wonder why she is casted this early... :cheese Oh well. maybe they just wanted to give us a "random" character in with all the important ones :p

    I EFFING LOVE SOPHIE OKONEDO

    I feel like the actress playing Min looks too old to match how I always pictured her in my head, but that's also me going off a professional headshot and not seeing her in makeup/costume/in action, so.... :cheese

    I wonder if that means they will be incorporating New Spring material, maybe do flashbacks?

    Also, I love Sophie Okonedo, and I'm going to have to settle into the idea of Kae Alexander as Min. From the picture they chose, she felt too... mature to be Min. I know they'll do great with hair and make up, though, so I'm not too worried.

    If they’re casting Siuan this early, I think they are going to be flashing back to anew Spring at the least, especially since this will be in Moiraine’s perspective at the beginning.

    Wow, this is the first casting I am seriously disapointed in. I mean, I see the Siuan actress a little bit looks like Siuan from my thoughts, but Min... she is sooooo far away from what I imagined that it will be very difficult to get used to.

    This said, of course I am still excited to see them in costume and make up and all!

    I found a picture on Imdb of Kae with shorter hair. She isn't exactly what I pictured but I think she could be good.

    I have faith, since Min is such a huge role, I think they have their reasoning.
