The Wheel of Time: Madeleine Madden Posts Pre-COVID Lockdown Cast Pics

Amazon Prime and showrunner Rafe Judkins' (Chuck, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) series adaptation of The Wheel of Time has been stepping up its game lately when it comes to sharing some much-wanted intel with fans of author Robert Jordan's series of novels. Along with both an audio and video preview, Judkins took to social media to answer a wide range of questions about the production- ranging from weaponry, music, and costumes to how real the effects will be and how they handle diverging from the novels.

But for this update, we're taking a look back. Well, it's series star Madeleine Madden aka Egwene al'Vere who's the one doing the looking back, actually. In the following Instagram post, Madden posts a collection of pics under the caption, "Pre-lockdown, Covid-safe evenings in Praha 2020" that show the cast and crew finding a little down-time to actually hang out, decompress, and be less than six feet of one another. And don't forget that many of them were in lockdown there even when production halted. It's a nice reminder of what it was like less than a year ago- and what it could be a year from now if we all do our part by wearing a mask and getting vaccinated.

Here's a look back at the video showing the journey that a Heron-Mark Blade made from design to build to appearing on set to finally make its way in front of the camera. Following that, we have the audio preview that was released at the end of October, teasing the action to come along with a very important question:
