Barney Harries is a talented British actor popularly known for his character role Mat Cauthon.

‘The Wheel Of Time’ returned with its second season in September 2021, but Barney Harries is missing from the drama.

Barney’s fans were eagerly waiting to see him in Season 2 of Prime Video’s The Wheel Of Time. But, his sudden exit from the series left everyone in shock.


The release of the official trailer of WOT season 2 has made some buzz, fans have been curious to know why did Barney Harries leave the show.

Barney Harris’s fans are pretty disappointed not to see him on ‘The Wheel Of Time’ season 2.

The WTO season1 could relate with Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon, but sadly he got replaced by another actor.

The real reason Barney Harris left Wheel Of The Time hasn’t been revealed yet.

Barney Harris, as well as the casting team of WOT, is silent at the moment. We have to wait for their response to know the exact reason.

Barney Harris might have left the show because he wanted to act in different roles besides Mat Cauthon of WOT. 

On the other hand, Harris may have some personal and professional reasons to leave the show. 

We hope to see Barney Harris on the screen soon with his outstanding performances in upcoming projects.


Barney Harris portrayed Matrim Cauthon’s first season of Amazon’s ‘The Wheel Of Time’.

Recently, Barney was replaced by actor Donal Finn in season 2 of WOT.

Reportedly, Donal Finn is playing the role of Mat Cauthon in The Wheel Of Time series, replacing Barney Harris.

Donal Finn is an experienced actor who has previously worked in The Witcher (2019), Rogue Heroes, and Albion (2020).

It might be the decision of the casting team to cast Donal Finn in replace of Barney Harries as he is a wise choice for the role of Mat Cauthon.
