The Wheel of Time, Season 2: Marcus Rutherford

Dept. of Chats and Confabs


Almost two years after the series premiered, Prime Video’s adaptation of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time, finally returns for its second season. In this Goggler exclusive, we got the chance to sit down with Marcus Rutherford for a conversation about trusting in the showrunner’s plan, acting for a high fantasy series, and the wide, expansive nature of Robert Jordan’s books.

Don’t forget to check out our interview with Daniel Henney – Lan Mandragoran himself – here, and Ceara Coveney and Dónal Finn, here.

Based on the best-selling Robert Jordan fantasy series The Wheel of Time, a humble farm boy, Rand al’Thor, learns he is The Dragon Reborn — a dangerous figure from history destined to save the world… or break it. Desperate to protect him from the Dark One, an army of powerful sorceresses must reckon with his burgeoning power and encroaching madness. The Wheel of Time turns, and the Last Battle approaches. Though Rand thought he destroyed the Dark One, evil is not gone from the world. In Season Two, threats new and very old seek out the young friends from the Two Rivers, now scattered over the world. The woman who found and guided them is now powerless to help, and so they must find other sources of strength. In each other, or themselves. In the Light … or the Dark.

The series also stars Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred, Daniel Henney as Lan Mandragoran, Zoë Robins as Nynaeve al’Meara, Madeleine Madden as Egwene al’Vere, Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara, Dónal Finn as Mat Cauthon, and Ceara Coveney as Elayne Trakand.

New episodes of The Wheel of Time drop on Prime Video every Friday.
