  5. Thanks. Lan has blue eyes, so I never thought he looks Tibetan. I'm not a WoT expert, but I don't remember Andoran nobility being described as dark-skinned. Many of them have blue eyes or blond hair. There is a chapter in The Path of Daggers, when the rebel Aes Sedai army was in northern Murandy, and Egwene was meeting representatives of both Andoran and Murandian nobility. If I remember correctly, Murandian nobles were dark-haired and had brown eyes, but Andoran nobles had more "Northern European" look. I might be completely wrong on this.
  6. True. But there aren't that many non-white characters in WoT. The Sea Folk look like Asian Indians – Sharans and some of the Seanchan (Tuon) resemble black Africans. Altarans are described as "olive-skinned" and Domani as "coppery-skinned", but I believe they are still white. Or maybe Domani and Saldaeans (Faile) should be played by Middle Eastern looking actors? Semirhage was dark-skinned – what about the other Forsaken?
