Robert Jordan's Wheel Of Time - No Limits Casting Call!

Any Actor... Any Era!

Take A Look!
Siuan Sanche Lauren Bacall

Starred in many movies with Bogart, has the perfect mix of youth and spirit for a post-Stilled Siuan Sanche. Unfortunately, Bogey just wouldn't make a good Gareth Bryne...
Leane Sharif Angie Harmon

A good partner as the stilled/renewed Keeper of the Chronicles for Bacall's Amyrlin Seat. Can tackle the seriousness of Leane, but also catch the sultry attitude when she turns up the Domani charm.
Verin Mathwin Patricia Routledge

Casting Verin sucked. Hollywood, in its oh-so-realistic portrayals of modern life, has a definite lack of overweight actors. C'mon, pudgy folks are a large segment of the population, yet to watch popular TV and films, you are led to believe there are only 4 or 5 plump women in existence.

Basically, you can choose from Camryn Mannheim, Kathy Bates, Miriam Margolyes, Gwyneth Paltrow in a fat suit or, if you dust off the cobwebs, Shelly Winters.

I finally had to skip across the pond to find someone suitable for the enigmatic Verin. Though I personally don't like the character she's famous for (Hyacinth Bucket in BBC's 'Keeping Up Appearances'), Patricia Routledge is a good fit here.
Cadsuane Melaidhrin Dame Judi Dench

It takes a big brass pair to stand up to The Dragon Reborn, and Cadsuane needs a tough-as-nails actor to take the reins of the character. If Dame Judi can pull 007 into line, then Rand should be a cakewalk...

Runner-Up: Katharine Hepburn
Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan Maureen O'Hara

Maureen O'Hara faced down The Duke in no less than 5 films, so she's uniquely qualified for the determined yet headstrong Elaida.

Runner-Up: Elizabeth Taylor
Alviarin Freidhin Annie Lennox

There's not much of a description of Alviarin beyond tall & slim, so I get a great deal of leeway in who to cast.
So, in a rare bit of "out-of-left-field" casting, I'm gonna take a chance on this one and choose singer Annie Lennox. She'd be great as Alviarin!
Sheriam Bayanar Miranda Richardson

Almost a perfect match for Sheriam, Ms. Richardson ('The Crying Game', BBC's 'Blackadder', 'Get Carter') can switch back & forth from being warmly supportive to full-on "bitch-from-hell" mode, just as the Mistress of Novices should!
Myrelle Berengari
Francesca Annis

She is darkly beautiful. Her face is a perfect oval. ( TFoH,Ch26 ) She has large, dark eyes. ( TFoH,Ch27 ) She is olive skinned.

Alanna Mosvani Linda Fiorentino
