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 Daniel Henney, Lan Mandragoran himself, and talk about the physical nature of his character, dealing with fans, and working on a high fantasy TV series.

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.

The second season of Wheel of Time premieres on Prime Video on Friday, September 1.
