Amazing Prime’s much anticipated series Wheel of Time has announced six new characters including Lolita Chakrabarti, who will play Marin Al’Vere.
Marin Al’Vere is mother to lead character Egwene Al’Vere. In the books, she is described as being slender, with thick, grey braided hair. She is also known for being one of the best cooks in the village, famous for her honey-cakes and crusted bread loaves.
Marin is a strong-willed mother with a deep maternal connection to all of the children in Emond’s Field. She’s part of the Women’s Circle, a group of women who help manage the affairs of the village. The power of the Women’s Circle is balanced by (and often at odds with) the equally important Village Council. This is reflected in Marin’s relationship with her husband, Bran.
The Wheel of Time, starring Rosamund Pike, follows Moiraine, a member of the powerful, all-woman organization of channellers (magic users) called the Aes Sedai, who takes a group of five young people from their home village following an attack by the forces of the Dark One, a malevolent evil entity who seeks to destroy the Pattern (Existence). Among these five, she believes one might be the reincarnation of the Dragon, an ancient hero and powerful channeler who is prophesied to save the world and destroy it.
