    Can I just say that I find it amusing that they tweeted out "No Spoilers" but so far the quotes to describe the characters are all from A Memory of Light?

    WOW I love it. I have always pictured the two rivers natives (mostly) as sort of racially ambiguous and I think they've got that look I hoped for perfectly. When I saw the actress who is playing Nynaeve I teared up a little. At work.

    The actress for Nynaeve is PERFECT. I'm so emotional right now :lol

    I..... don't really like any of them :look oops :look

    I think the one who's chosen for Mat is my favorite, but all in all, I am not super excited. I guess the people who cast them know their job and when I see them in the actual show, I will be on board, but right now, with the pictures they have, I am not convinced :look

    Still super excited that things are moving though! :D Cannot wait to see Lan!! ^^

    Modern headshots don't really give the best impression

    Once they are in costume etc, I imagine it will be quite a different story.

    Hopefully they are good actors, that's the most important part, so this thing doesn't end up cheesey.

    I also felt a bit unexcited about the headshots, but there are better photos for all of them. I liked these, for instance:

    Madeleine Madden: here and here

    I think they're legit getting ready to start filming, if they're not already :eek Rafe Judkins tweeted today that Daniel Henney was "who I saw in my mind from the first moment I started writing, so to have him here in Prague is surreal"--as in, present tense :eek

    Yeah, not going to lie, I was kind of hoping for Thom and maybe even Tam today too! Hopefully we won't have to wait another month.

    I'm hoping we don't have to wait much longer. Filming sounds like it's going to start soon, so hoping for reveals rather than leaks, cause the information will get out.

    I'm just really excited to see more announcements. Put the pieces of the puzzle together so we can get a feel for what they are moving forward with.

    A MONTH? :cry

    Funny story: minutes after I saw the news, my brother messaged me a picture of Daniel Henney and said "Hey! It's Asian Lan! I always wanted Asian Lan!" It's uncanny how well the casting matches my read of the cultures so far. We had talked about Borderlanders as asian inspired just days before.
