You may have heard about these two but I'd thought I'd pass on the news anyway. Both Lord Lovat aka Simon Fraser and Young John William Grey have been cast!
Clive Russell will be playing Simon Fraser, also known as Lord Lovat. Simon is Jamie's paternal grandfather who was also a famous figure of the 45 (Jacboite Rising of 1745). Jamie's grandfather is nicknamed "the Old Fox" because of his manipulative personality and he often argues with his stubborn grandson. In history, Simon Fraser is the 11th Lord Lovat who was famous for his violent feuding and his changes of allegiance.
A young William Grey will be played by Oscar Kennedy. William is a young English soldier who will stumble into Jamie and Claire's path. He will be gallant if a bit out of his league when dealing with Jamie. This character will later become Lord John William Grey and it seems will then be recast.
