The Wheel of Time cast: Full list of main characters and actors

Adapted from Robert Jordan’s famous books series, the second season of Prime Video’s epic fantasy series sees our heroes scattered across the world and under attack by the evil Dark One and his minions as Moiraine Damodred (Rosamund Pike) and her Warder, Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney), go to great lengths to protect the group despite losing their special abilities.

Alongside plenty of returning stars from season 1, the second season of The Wheel of Time also welcomes a number of new faces, including Maja Simonsen, Ragga Ragnars, Jay Duffy and Rima Te Wiata.

There has also been one notable change to The Wheel of Time season 2 cast, with Mat Cauthon actor Barney Harris being swapped out for Dónal Finn – no official reason has been given for the decision.

Who is Moiraine? Moiraine is a member of the Aes Sedai, an organisation comprised of women capable of wielding magic. She is tasked with seeking out the reincarnation of the Dragon, an individual who will either save or destroy the world – her influence could be the factor that sways it one way or the other. No pressure. Things are particularly tough for Moiraine in season 2, as she has been cut off from her magical powers.

What else has Rosamund Pike been in? Pike received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in David Fincher’s Gone Girl adaptation. More recently, she drew further acclaim for her lead roles in biopic A Private War and thriller I Care A Lot.

What else has Dónal Finn been in? Finn replaces Barney Harris, who portrayed Mat in season 1.

“It’s always hard but we’re really lucky that Barney is so great in the first season; I love him in the show,” showrunner Rafe Judkins told Deadline. “And Dónal Finn, who is playing Mat in season two, is amazing.

“I have seen him up on set doing his scenes now and they’re incredible and they fully capture the character. I think it’s a testament to this character and how great the character of Mat is that it really feels seamless between the two actors.”

Finn’s past credits include Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and BBC One’s SAS: Rogue Heroes.
