    I just hope no country/city is given an Irish accent. They are always so painfully bad when portrayed on tv shows. I don't want to be irritated by any nation :shifty. With no evidence at all, my head cannon had the Emond fielders looking and sounding like old Ireland because of the familiar rural setting (mist, hills, sheep ... myrdrall.. :D ). I'm really excited by all the casting choices and can't wait to see it coming to life.

    This would be great! It looks like Aram and Illa have been cast by Irish actors so that could go a certain direction... Tam is also an Irish actor but I assume he'll alter the accent to fit whatever they want EF to sound like.

    I would whole-heartedly accept Colin Morgan and his Northern Irish accent in the show. Any part...I don't care.

    how about that new Ingtar! he looks intense. I’m excited.

    as for accent, it was startling to me to learn the Seanchan drawl is supposed to be Texan...I know we’ve got a long time before then but curious if they’ll have a distinctive accent for the show and what it’ll be. something different would make sense, with their being away across the ocean for so long.

    It would be cool if the main cast spoke British English, but the Seanchan came with American accents :p

    But I doubt that will be possible.

    Seanchan needs Texan accents. That would be the most accurate.

    I thought the other way around made more sense, cause... you know, all the bad guys are usually Brittish :look

    But if you look at the map in Wheel of Time, the Seanchan come from America ;)

    To be honest, I don't think I've ever looked at the WoT map and compared it to the world map. So this wouldn't have occurred to me :lol

    Hence the surprise.
