"... a beautiful woman, tall and statuesque with long blond hair that cascaded in braids around her slender frame."

Queen Anwyn becomes an increasingly important character in The Borderlands trilogy. She first appears in the final part of Book One: Journey, and it is clear from the moment she appears that she has a striking presence. Such a character would need to be played by an actress who is both beautiful and a little 'elfish' in her appearance. Rosamund Pike has the right look for such a role.

Queen Anwyn is the leader of the Seelie Court and rules from her seat in Arcadia, located in the Seelie half of the Borderlands. Her task is a grave and lonely one, and she yearns for her reunion with her daughter.

Some quotes from Queen Anwyn:

"I'm sorry. It must have been a shock to hear but we wanted to tell you as soon as we could ... I don't want any secrets between us." 
"Of good and evil. The scales have tipped; it is – unnatural." 
"You are safe now, he cannot hurt you here. He wouldn't dare."
