‘Genuine fan’ Rosamund Pike brings ‘The Wheel of Time’ fantasy to TV

In a new television drama, Robert Jordan’s fantasy book series “The Wheel of Time” arrives to the big screen. In that new drama, Rosamund Pike is the award-winning actress.

According to Amazon Prime Video series, the British actor is Moiraine, a member of the huge Aes Sedai society, who travels with young men and women by chance around the world. One of them is insisted upon to discredit humanity and defeat humanity.

Pike is the famous man of “Good Luck” and “Die of Day,” an unknown young actor.

When she appeared on Monday, she said, I haven’t made a cast like that since I made “Pride and Prejudice” such a special alchemy, that has a special schemy of personalities to whoever shooting is such a great magic,” she said.

“And so that makes me optimistic for how fans will respond. And we’re just sharing it - so I hope the word “Although the Wheel of Time” has not even infected me for the past few years is still on the rise of our fans. So we’ve become genuine fans.”

In respect of the series, which has drawn comparisons to the “Game of Thrones,” the movie has begun in the Czech Republic.

It’d be a travesty if we didn’t get the success of it because what (Jordan has) written is very amazing”, said Pike.

The first book of the World, published in 1990, was translated into fourteen volumes. The third of the last three books was translated into a book by a fantasy writer.

“Do what you could do now is to see what the reaction is but I have high hopes,” said the actor, Daniel Henney, who plays Lan Mandragoran.

“The Wheel of Time” hits Friday. — Reuters
