The Wheel of Time: The Movie

Aes Sedai
The Heroes
Aes Sedai
Black Ajah & Other Darkfriends
The Forsaken
Grey Men...and Women

Red, White, Blue, Brown, Green, Grey, Yellow...but not Black

Moiraine Damodred


Rachel Weisz
She's not quite as short as Moiraine should be but she's short enough for camera angles and tall actors to take care of that. She also just...looks like Moiraine. I can't really say much more than that.

Verin Mathwin


Toni Collette
A chameleonic actress who changes her appearance based on what character she's playing, I think that Ms. Collette could pull off the plump but not fat look of Verin very well (she puffs up for certain films) and I could easily imagine her coldly saying "interesting" in the face of, well, anything. She also has the ageless thing down pat.

Leane Sharif (before stilling)


Indira Varma
Tall, dark and sexy, but able to play imperious.

Q'orianka Kilcher
She's a hottie and the right age. She doesn't look as much like Ms. Varma as I'd like, but it's close enough.

Siuan Sanche (before stilling)


Emma Thompson
Emma doesn't look exactly like the description in the book, but she can play a woman with Siuan's personality so well that that can be overcome. She definitely matches the "handsome but not quite beautiful" of Siuan.

Alanna Mosvani


Rhona Mitra
Dark and beautiful. Need I say more?



Bahar Soomekh
She's dark and pretty; easily someone who could raise Nynaeve's jealousy.

Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan


Anjelica Huston
I tried to base all of my choices for Aes Sedai on how ageless they were able to appear, but agelessness be damned in this case. Anjelica just plays BITCH better than anybody. Plus, she probably could carry off "agelessness" easier than I'm giving her credit for.

Sheriam Bayanar


Felicity Huffman
Another actress who can play ageless well. She also has hair that could easily be made "flaming red" and this pic has a facial expression that would surely freeze any novice on the spot.

Bryce Dallas Howard
I think she could play a young Emma Thompson.

An Aes Sedai cannot lie, but the truth you hear may not be the truth you think it is.

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and go. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time."
