As 2022 comes to a close, we have news of two more cast that have been uncovered for season 2 of Prime Video’s The Wheel of Time: Vincent Kerschbaum and Lily Banda.
Vincent Kerschbaum is an international actor who was raised between the United Kingdom, Austria, and Ecuador. He has previously appeared in Prime Video’s thriller The Feed and historical drama Elizabeth I. Kerschbaum filmed in Prague in February 2022, and according to his CV, he will be appearing in season 2 as a “Sun Palace Servant” in an episode directed by Sanaa Hamri. While the timing of filming seems to indicate that he will be appearing in one of the later episodes (7 or 8), it’s always possible that he might have been involved in additional filming that was scheduled near the end of Prague production. Rosamund Pike previously revealed that season 2 would be going to Cairhien, but this casting suggests that we will not only see the country and city, but the Sun Palace itself.
Lily Banda is a Malawian actor, singer, songwriter, and dancer. She starred in Chiwetel Ejiofor’s movie The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind and was also in the second season of television Deep State. As first reported by Narg, her CV was updated recently to include a credit for “Milani” in the second season of The Wheel of Time, but as there is no character with that exact name in the book, her exact role is still a mystery. Banda was in Morocco while filming was occurring, so it’s possible her character may be one who shows up in Falme. However, since it’s still unknown exactly how many other book locations were filmed in Morocco, that’s just a guess.
As we mentioned in a previous article, season two is still undergoing post-production. While we do have confirmation from Rafe that season 2 will be coming in 2023, no news of a release date yet means it looks like we may still have a significant wait before season 2 will be on our screens. However, the footage we’ve seen so far has looked amazing, and we’re excited to see what sort of surprises the show has in store for us!
Gave up on this when they started playing fast and loose with the characters in the first season. What a butchered mess. Jordan is probably rolling in his grave. Too bad…
Loved the show. But taken to long to make S2 so now I’ll have rewatch S1 just to remember the plot , was a awesome show I’m a wizard, caster, orcs , mystical kinda movie watcher but two yrs for a wait between each season ur gonna loose ur viewers and there intrest
I was stoked to finally see the series come to life on the screen. All the information pointed to a tremendous effort to follow the books. Season one was an epic disappointment. Now all the promotion channels call it an adaptation.
It’s been called an adaption from the right from the beginning of the production 🤷🏻♀️ and that is what it is. Adapting 15 massive books into 8 seasons of 8 episodes requires massive changes/contractions/merging and created scenes to explain things that didn’t have a pov in the books but were repeatedly spoken of and effect the whole arc. As an obsessed multi multi reader of the books I can understand all they have done, and on the whole I love it even with having to miss some fave scenes and the massive issues they had with last two episodes thanks to COVID and Barney Harris departure. Just like with the books we never knew what was going to happen next nor did we like every decision by the author in them, this feels like getting to experience WoT all over again. Can’t wait for season 2.
CAN/T WAIT FOR SEASON @
Wo T is an imaginative, wonderful escape to this alternate place where humans can wield the one power. I enjoyed season one and look forward to season two. The fact that it doesn’t follow the books adds an element of surprise that some disagree with, but, I love it!
Pure garbage. They clearly hat Robert Jordan.
