The show, based on the series of books of the same name, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 19, 2021
It seems dedicated actors do not stop trying to only capture their characters’ psyche these days, putting in the work to match their roles' physical demands. That was the case on the sets of The Wheel of Time, as revealed by Rosamund Pike. The English actor recently talked about how her male co-stars had put in a lot of time and effort into dieting and working out, before filming their nude scenes on the series.
Pike revealed that the fantasy series featured more scenes involving nude men than women. Talking about how nude scenes most often involved women, she said it felt quite refreshing to see how the show did not adhere to the status quo.
The Gone Girl actor also shared how while the male stars were ‘frantically’ working out and dieting to be in shape for their scenes, the female stars were given free rein to enjoy and indulge themselves.
Based on the series of novels of the same name by Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time tells the story of a woman belonging to the Aes Sedai, a group of women who have powerful magical abilities. One of them, Moiraine, sets out on a perilous journey with five young men and women, one of whom is destined to be the Dragon Reborn.
In addition to Pike, the series also stars Joshua Stradowski, Álvaro Morte, Marcus Rutherford, Zoë Robins, Barney Harris, Madeleine Madden, and Daniel Henney.
The first three episodes of The Wheel of Time will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 19, 2021, with the remaining five airing every Friday. The show can be watched in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
