Rosamund Pike to Star as Moiraine in Amazon’s Wheel of Time Adaptation

Amazon’s adaptation of The Wheel of Time has found its Moiraine! The Wheel of Time Writers Room took to twitter to announce that Oscar-nominated actor Rosamund Pike will take on the role.

Last week showrunner Rafe Judkins promised that he’d return to announcing news on Twitter under the hashtag #WoTWednesdays, and he did not disappoint! Here’s the tweet:

Moiraine is a member of a sisterhood called the Aes Sedai, and she travels the world with a group of five youths (Although…could Nynaeve really be considered a youth?)—one of whom may prove to be very, very important. Best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Amy Dunne in Gone Girl, Pike has also appeared in Die Another Day, The Libertine, and the most recent adaptation of Watership Down. Wheel of Time will be coming to Amazon in a co-production with Sony Pictures TV.

We’ll keep you updated as the wheel of new turns, but in the meantime, what do you hope to see from Moiraine?
