Last week we meet Marsali who may have seemed like just another character we will meet and then will later part company from Jamie and Claire; however, we will see a lot more Marsali in the future.
Lauren Lyle told Andrea Reiher of POPSUGAR:
"A few of us are newbies [this season], but it doesn't feel at all as though you're the odd one out. Everyone's super welcoming," said Lyle, who joined John Bell and Cesar Domboy as new recurring cast members in season three. "Everyone's so chill and laid-back and everyone's there to have fun. Everyone's like that. I was expecting it to be very regimented, but it's not. It really is like a laugh the whole time."
Lyle also told Reiher that she didn't want to say much about her character because it will spoil things but needless to say Marsali is going to be sticking around for a while.
You may have already heard the news but actress Lauren Lyle has been cast in the role of Marsali.
Marsali is described as:
"Marsali is the 18-year-old high-spirited daughter of Laoghaire. Blond and lovely, like her mother, she first was introduced in Season 1, when her youthful crush on Jamie Fraser was halted by his marriage to Claire, but Marsali has a rebellious and romantic mind of her own. She knows what she wants and she goes after it – reputation and propriety be damned."
Sounds a little like Laoghaire, no? Well, I believe the show fans will like Marsali a lot more.
