After introducing us to Tam and Rand al’Thor in last week’s #WOTWednesday, The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins has tweeted another page from the pilot script. It’s a note, but a significant one that provides insight into how the series will approach casting:
[A QUICK NOTE: race in the world of Wheel of Time is much less defined than in our world.
As much as possible, our cast should look like America will in a few hundred years—a beautiful mix of white, brown, black and everything in between]
Hey! Sorry (especially to non-US folks) for the lateness on this. But this #WoTWednesday I thought I’d give another script grab — this time about casting. Actual casting is a long way off, but this at least gives you an idea of how we are thinking about it in a general sense. pic.twitter.com/MAGI381ExZ
