In one of the more tender scenes from “Of Lost Things,” the fourth episode from Starz’ Outlander, Jamie (Sam Heughan) offers his body to Lord John Grey (David Berry), a closeted gay soldier, in exchange for watching over his son, Willie, after he returns to Scotland.
Grey is, understandably, overwhelmed with emotion. “I should probably want you ’til the day I die,” he says to Jamie. But he declines Jamie’s offer.
Reached overseas by EW, Berry looks back at the scene and talks about how challenging it was for him and Heughan to communicate so much in so little time.

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 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.
