The Wheel of Time: Aviendha Has Been Cast

Aviendha is coming to Prime Video's The Wheel of Time.

During an AMA on Reddit, The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins was asked if the character of Aviendha had already been cast for the Amazon series. Judkins simply replied, "Yes." However, he did not elaborate any further, meaning fans of the series will still have to wait and see who exactly is playing Aviendha.

A Wise One of the Nine Valleys sept of the Taardad Aiel, Aviendha first appeared in The Dragon Reborn, the third novel in late author Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series. She was last seen in A Memory of Light by Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, the 14th and final book in The Wheel of Time.

Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios' series adaptation of The Wheel of Time dropped its first three episodes on Prime Video on Nov. 19, becoming the streaming platform's most-watched premiere of 2021. Season 1 is slated to run for a total of eight episodes and will conclude on Friday, Dec. 24. The Wheel of Time has already been renewed for Season 2. The series stars Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, Daniel Henney as al'Lan Mandragoran, Zoë Robins as Nynaeve al'Meara, Madeleine Madden as Egwene al'Vere, Josha Stradowski as Rand al'Thor, Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara, Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon, Kate Fleetwood as Liandrin Guirale and Priyanka Bose as Alanna Mosvani.

At this time, it remains to be seen if the character of Aviendha will actually appear in The Wheel of Time Season 1, or if the show's creators are saving her for Season 2. Interestingly, though, the show's upcoming fourth episode -- which is set to air this Friday, Nov. 26 -- is titled "The Dragon Reborn," having gotten its name from the 1991 novel in which Aviendha first appeared.

Jordan's original Wheel of Time book series consists of 14 main entries: The Eye of the World (1990), The Great Hunt (1990), The Dragon Reborn (1991), The Shadow Rising (1992), The Fires of Heaven (1993), Lord of Chaos (1994), A Crown of Swords (1996), The Path of Daggers (1998), Winter's Heart (2000), Crossroads of Twilight (2003), Knife of Dreams (2005), The Gathering Storm (2009), Towers of Midnight (2010) and A Memory of Light (2013). Following Jordan's death in 2007, The Gathering Storm, Towers of Midnight and A Memory of Light were co-written (i.e. completed) by the aforementioned Sanderson. Jordan also wrote New Spring, a prequel set 200 years before The Eye of the World, which was published in 2004.
