Two new cast members have been announced recently. Ainsley Jordan who will be playing the role of Judith Wylie, who will be a rival to Claire. Tim Downie will be portraying Governor William Tryon (it is spelled Tryon). Gov. Tryon is a historical figure you can read about at the North Carolina History Project or Wikipedia.
Each week, Oultander fans are on pins and needles waiting to see what is going on with time-crossed lovers Claire and Jamie. Showrunner Ron Moore often deviates from the books, with the cooperation of Diana Galbadon. If things are still on the same track though as the books, there is one important person we have not seen or heard about yet: Laogharie.
These Northern Inuit puppies will be playing the role of Rollo. Rollo is a wolf hybrid that becomes a beloved member of the Fraser clan through an encounter with Young Ian.
Talk about adorable! Sam and Rik really have competition for cutest now.
We don't know the answer to this yet. Scottish actor James McAnerney posted the below tweet on his Twitter and it has made me curious who we think James will be playing in Season Three. Remember if you've not read the books this is very spoiler-y....
Tobias Menzies, it seems, knows how to pick a project. Over the last few years, the RADA-trained British actor has appeared in a string of mammouth television hits, playing Catyln Stark's hapless brother Edmure Tully in Game of Thrones, an evil MI6 suit in The Night Manager, a tactless OBY-GYN doctor in Catastrophe, and two distinct characters—a ruthless, 18th-century army captain nicknamed "Black Jack" and his rather more docile 20th-century descendent, Frank—in Starz's fantasy series Outlander, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination. Then there are his film roles in both festival-friendly indies (such as Una, which premiered at TIFF last September) and blockbusters, like the recently-released Underworld: Blood Wars, in which he plays stringy-haired Lycan villain Marius.
"Underworld is, obviously, a huge genre piece with a very particular kind of aesthetic," Menzies explains over the phone from London. "In a way, [it requires] a very type of performance to make that material work," he continues. "They can be complicated things to rattle with, because there's obviously so much story to link in with prior films, and the pressure of the genre and the audience."
Next up, Menzies will star in the series The Terror about a Royal Naval expedition to the Arctic alongside Ciarán Hinds and Jared Harris. "We did five weeks before Christmas and I'm about to go back," he tells us. "It's an amazing story. I'm really, really excited for what we're making."
In case you missed it, Outlander has received two new cast members in the forms of Gary Young and Charlie Hiett.
Young, a graduate of the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in London and Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School, most recently appeared in the Netflix feature Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and the Australian miniseries Secret City.
Mr. Willoughby is a man of Chinese decent with a deep knowledge of Eastern medicine. He is a talented poet in exile, with an even deeper love of women. Willoughby, a confidante of Jamie Fraser, speaks English well, but hides it when it suits him.
Hiett trained at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama has credits including the role of William Kent in The Suspicions of Mr Whincher on ITV, as well as Judge John Deed and M.I. High.
Leonard is the inexperienced, by-the-book de facto captain of the Artemis. Promoted quickly due to the untimely deaths of his commanding officers, Leonard takes his job very seriously, though it weighs heavily on his young shoulders. A third lieutenant, he never thought he would be the captain of a man-of-war ship. Above all, he wants to do what is right by the British Navy — whether or not it is right by his own personal morals.
So Wee Jamie (or Young Jamie) is apparently all grown up, which makes sense if there is going to be a time jump.
On the left we have Aaron Wright who played a very young James Murray and on the left we have Conor McCarry who will be playing an older James Murray (Young Jamie).
Young Jamie is now the heir to Lallybroch after Jamie and Claire signed over the deed of Sasine to him before Culloden.
Conor has been in Anna Karenina and Battleship. You can check out his IMDB page and follow him on Twitter. Be kind.
I loved the recent Supernatural cover but little did I know things were getting better with this amazing cover of Sam. Great Scot, indeed! I'm so excited it's not funny. Check out the first look video and spoiler photos below (photos will be hidden).
It is official. Lord John Grey has been cast for Season Three. Australian actor David Berry will take over the role of Grey.
Lord John Grey is described, "He's steadfast and honorable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland.”
Berry is best knon for playing Jamies Bligh in the Australian TV show A Place to Call Home. He is also and singer and tours with the act Scream and Shout.
You can read more about him at IMDB.
Dragonfly in Amber begins in 1968 at the wake of Rev. Reginald Wakefield. Roger is watching the Avengers with a group of children in a daze when Fiona comes and tells him he should really get back to his guests. Roger goes out and toasts his “father” [Rev. Wakefield was his Great Uncle but his adoptive father after the death of Roger’s parents].
Roger sees a red haired girl and goes looking for her. Getting distracted by those paying their respect he thinks he’s missed her when she finds him, asking if he’s Roger Wakefield. An older Claire appears reminiscing about how young Roger was the last time she saw him and him meeting her daughter but Roger says he’s not had the pleasure (boys got it so bad). Bree introduces herself. Then Claire explains she’s an old friend of his father’s and that her husband was also. Roger finally realizes Claire is Frank Randall’s wife. He mentions her being a nurse and she tells him she’s now a doctor but Brianna comments her mother is being modest because she’s actually a surgeon. Claire asks after Mrs. Graham and we learn she died a few years back. (So is that three deaths in the 1960s? Frank, Rev. Wakefield and Mrs. Graham.)
Claire goes to look around and remember her time at the Manse while Roger asks Brianna if it is her first time in Scotland. Brianna has always been interested in Scotland but they don’t have time to take in the sites which Roger thinks is a shame as it is a “beautiful, wild country.” Fiona appears and drags Roger off to say goodbye to his guests.
