This month’s Wheel of Time Wednesday was an official announcement (or for some, a confirmation) that Michael McElhatton has joined the cast of the Wheel of Time TV show! If you find yourself thinking he looks familiar, you may recognize him as Roose Bolton from Game of Thrones (or any of his other projects on his impressively long resume).
He’s definitely got the acting experience needed, and he even played a dad on Game of Thrones! But let’s all hope Rand turns out better than Ramsey…

We knew it was coming, but it’s a completely different thing to see it in action! For today’s #WOTWednesday, The Wheel of Time on Prime Twitter page shared snippets of the cast reading the script for the first episode. It’s fantastic, and we’re so excited to get our first peek at the cast reading as their characters. Check out the full video below, then join us here in the comments, and over on our Facebook and Twitter pages to discuss the news!
Today JordanCon shares the news that April Moore and Leslie Annis have stepped down from their roles leading the Art Show. JordanCon thanks them for their contribution to the convention.
For the past 8 years, JordanCon’s Art Show has brought joy to many attendees. We have brought in some of the best artists in the industry to JordanCon to share their works with others. We have created lifelong friends with new artists, working in the Art Show, or just simple admirers of fine art. Comments from artists at other conventions tell tales of how well run our Art Show is and how they enjoy coming to JordanCon.
April and Leslie has brought tremendous energy to the Art Show. Their leadership has made JordanCon’s Art Show one of the best in the Southeast. April helped build the Art Show back in 2012. Soon Leslie joined the Art Show as a volunteer and worked her way up to become April’s right hand. Together they were instrumental in creating the expanding the Art Show to what you see today, creating a Print Shop so we can buy that piece of art we would win in the Art Auction, and worked with our Programming team in developing an Art Track, where we enjoy panels like Win, Lose, and Draw, and the Charity Art Jam.
The Art Show will remain an integral part of JordanCon, and we will be looking to find a new Art Show Director and Manager in the coming days. Until then, please join us in thanking them for their hard work and dedication. If you see them at JordanCon, be sure to thank them and maybe buy them a drink (Leslie likes bourbon and April likes wine).
Until next time,
Jennifer and Jimmy Liang
