The first shot of Rand and Loial's meeting and as expected there is no surprise.
Another character who bears no resemblance to the books.
With a serious budget, it's hardly that hard to find an actor who doesn't need 10 inch tall shoes to be taller than Rand. Despicable makeup and costume ...
It is very difficult and after a great effort for the viewers to perceive this effigy as one of the main fairy tale characters. Unfortunately, he looks too much like a singer from Eastern Europe.
