The Wheel of Time actor Rosamund Pike reveals her character was intriguing and unpredictable in the Amazon Original series
The much popular bestseller fantasy series ‘The Wheel of Time’ has created no less buzz in its televised version. The latest offering on Prime Video and has been the talk of town for making the unimaginable fantasy world come true in all its cinematic splendour. The cinematic visuals and epic magic tricks are better than our imagination. Starring as a lead in this show, Rosamund Pike yet again proved her versatile and on-point acting skills. Further from appreciation received for her role as Moraine, she talks about her role and her understanding about the Amazon Original series The Wheel of Time.
Talking about her role as Moraine she said, “It was very intriguing to me to be that person who you don’t know whether to trust or to be wary of. It’s never clear whether Moraine is a force of good or evil,” says Pike. “And you don’t really know where you stand with her. She can be critical, she can be warm, she can be emotional, she can be guarded. I think Moiraine has a cause, she has a mission, and that is her driving force; that comes even before her own happiness or her own desires in life. Her life-or-death quest here is to seek out the Dragon Reborn and take him to face the Dark One, fully cognizant that the ensuing battle between the two will either be the making or the breaking of the world. Moiraine, however, will not know whether the Dragon Reborn is a force of good or evil until that time.”
Adding to that she decodes what is her understanding about the series, she said, “The Wheel of Time is weaving this pattern of life, as you would have it, and many of the threads of the pattern are all pre-written for us. It’s like our lives are predestined but there are some people who have crept up in the world, who have the ability to change the pattern. And it’s around those people that patterns change, and forces change, and history can go off in a different direction.”
New episodes are available to stream weekly on Fridays. The fantasy series will be available in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu only on Prime Video.
