So they've cast King Louis XV who will be played by Lionel Lingelser. Jamie and Claire cross paths with the King but to go into further detail would give some things away (unless they don't stick to that storyline). I think I found Lionel at IMBD but I can't be sure.

I TRAVEL THROUGH TIME
Caitriona Balfe, the Outlander’s star,is hitting the big time in Hollywood. And after shooting with Clooney and Julia Roberts, she’s ready to return to Scotland. With specific ideas, some style tricks and few regrets.
One thinks that some things can happen only in an episode of Sex and the City. Instead you can just walk in the West Village in New York with Caitriona Balfe (pronounced Catrina; it’s a Gaelic name) to suddenly glance at your side a coach with the advertising of Outlander, where she is the leading actress, exactly what it happens to Carrie in the unforgettable theme song. But Caitriona does not stumble: she mirrors herself in her image and smiles. “Thanks to the photo editing the scene seems almost heroic”,she says. “But looking at it I can only recall that my ass was freezing that day in the mountains of Scotland”. After leaving Ireland at 15 years old, entering the fashion industry as a model, last year she has been mentioned by Entertainment Weekly among the twelve Hollywood’s rising stars. Thirty-five years, 1.77 cm tall, a perfect body, icy stare and reminiscent features as Cate Blanchett, one of the actressess she likes more.
The full Outlander Comic Con panel has been posted on YouTube by the Starz Channel. As always, this group is wonderful fun to see together. There's another drinking game and a sneak peek at the blooper reel that will be on the part 2 DVD (available September 29th) is also included. The quality is excellent so watch it full screen.
Even though the second season of Starz’s steamy time-traveling drama, Outlander, won’t premiere until 2016, we’re going to take a metaphorical trip through the standing stones of Craigh na Dun, to go back to the future and give you an exclusive first look at the new episodes!
When last we saw Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) they were fleeing Scotland on a ship bound for France. What will they get up to in Paris? And how will this new setting affect the show you’ve come to love? We asked executive producer Ronald D. Moore, who kindly called in from set in Scotland, to give us all the details.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I understand you’ll be doing a bit of globe-trotting as the season progresses, Ron. What part of the Outlander world tour are you in right now?
RONALD D. MOORE: We’re at the end of the beginning, as Churchill would say. We’re in the second block at this point. We shoot them in blocks of two. I think we’re on episodes 4 and 5 at this point.
What locales are on your itinerary? Several cities are standing in for Paris, correct?
Paris is sort of a combination of three basic places: Scotland, where we’re building interiors on our sound stages and going out to find houses or exteriors that might work for someone’s Parisian apartment or palace or garden. Then we’re going to go to Prague, and in Prague we’re going to shoot street scenes for Paris. Like, when you see our characters going through the streets of Paris it will be the streets of Prague, primarily. There will also be some locations in Prague that would serve as, like, the Palace of Versailles. Likewise, there are some locations in the south of England, some of the English palaces that have some French rooms. There’s some French architecture to them that we will also play as part of Versailles, some gardens, some other houses around Paris. So it’s really those three… How we’re going to build our Parisian story.
