The Wheel of Time family is getting bigger every day! This week, WOTonPrime has uncovered the lovely faces of the Tuatha’an frustrated teenager Aram and his grandparents, Raen and Illa.
(Note: The comments section for this piece will most likely contain spoilers for the Wheel of Time series.)
Way back in November, Variety reported that Peaky Blinders star Daryl McCormack had been cast in an undisclosed role. Now, it’s official: he’ll be playing the role of Aram. According to the show’s Twitter account, he’ll be joined by Maria Doyle Kennedy (whom you might recognize from Orphan Black, Outlander, and plenty of other genre hits) as Illa and Narinder Samra (next seen in Netflix’s forthcoming adaptation of Shadow and Bone) as Raen.
Please welcome the Tuatha'an, our newest cast members to the #WOTonPrime family:
