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…

You’ve done it again and exceeded expectations in the grandest way possible. As we close the books, we wanted to share some of your successes that led to a JordanCon record-shattering donation.
This year’s chosen charity, Hospice of Mercy, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received a total amount of $17,522 in honor of our brother, Steve Godecke.
#JCon2019 By the Numbers
JordanCon 2019 saw new records for member attendance (890), Charity Auction funds raised ($9,021), charity proceeds from the JordanCon 2019 Anthology “You Want Stories?” ($4,054), and other charity events ($1,879). The Art Show also achieved a 3-year goal and new record for charitable funds (10 percent of all Art Show sales totaling $2,567).
As we wrap up our fiscal year and look back at JordanCon 2019, we want to thank all of our members, staff, and officers for their time and generosity that contributed to a record-breaking year for charity. Our family is strong and generous, and none of this would be possible with all of you.
We’ve all been waiting an incredibly long time to see a version of our beloved series on screen, whether big or small, and after so many years without much progress, it’s been incredible to be getting constant updates from showrunner Rafe Judkins via Twitter and his #WOTWednesday posts.
At JordanCon 10, Harriet teased that news about who would be ordering the show was imminent, and now the wait is finally over. It was officially announced that Amazon is the lucky streaming service involved! More importantly, they’ve confirmed the first season is already ordered and at least two scripts are complete and ready to go. For fans, this is a dream come true. We’re no longer hoping for progress, we’re seeing things happen and watching the project move rather speedily toward completion.
To stay up to date on what’s happening, be sure to follow our Facebook and Twitter pages. We love sharing Judkins’ updates, and we’re always keeping an eye out for new and exciting news! And as always, we’ll do our best to catch you up here once a month, too!
