I love the Wheel of Time books and was excited about this series [In reply to] Can't Post

until I saw the trailer with Rosamund Pike as Moiraine. Whoever cast her in that role probably never read the books. I am most definitely not a Rosamund Pike fan to begin with and she is about as far from Moiraine as my imagination can imagine.

Casting for both LOTR and The Hobbit was excellent once Stuart Townsend was replaced by Viggo Mortensen. Casting for Game of Thrones was as if the characters stepped out of the pages onto the screen - it was perfect. This - well, I'll give it a try.

The actor who portrayed Mat is being replaced in season two.....no indication yet as to why [In reply to] Can't Post

Can Rosamund Pike portray Moraine...sure, she is a good actress - but will have to wait and see how all of these actors portray their characters.

Did you have some actresses in mind for the role of Moraine?

To begin with, someone shorter than 5'9" [In reply to] Can't Post

Moiraine was petite, in sharp contrast to her immense power.

Personally I do not feel that Rosamund Pike is a particularly good actress; her facial expression hardly varies, nor does her voice, and her voice's pitch is much deeper than I would expect from Moiraine, (aside from when she's channeling big time!).

Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Emilia Clarke come to mind - all around 5'2" and all capable of projecting power with face, voice and body language. Alicia Vikander would be another choice, although she is 5'6". Even Winona Ryder or Christina Ricci would be better than Pike IMHO.

But that is not for me to decide. *sigh*

Yes, you can see her similar expression in all of these....but I guess that is true of most actors [In reply to] Can't Post


I think her eyebrows are a factor.

Winona [In reply to] Can't Post

jumped way up on my list of favorite actresses because of "Stranger Things." I thought she was amazing in that. Having to play a character whom everyone else thinks is batty . . . but she's not . . . she carried it off well.

Actually those movie clips make me feel a bit better about her in the role [In reply to] Can't Post

But she is still too tall! And she looks quite odd with dark hair. And yes, the eyebrows are distracting.
