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.
So that is definitely why Caitriona was cast because the chemistry is off the charts!
We've all been waiting for years to see the audition tape of Sam and Cait and now the time is upon us. Entertainment Tonight will be airing their audition tapes on Valentine's Day. That's right, tune in on February 14, 2018 to ET for the coveted audition tapes. Let's see the magic the PTBs (Powers That Be) over at Outlander saw when Sam and Cait read for them! Check your local listings to find out when it airs!
Are you excited? I am.
Psst... if you're catching this after the fact, I hope to have the videos to share... check the blog.
Are you wondering who Andrew MacNeil is? Me too. And then the description reminded me. Andrew MacNeil is a plantation owner near Cape Fear who is a key member of the Scottish community. I'm pretty sure he's the guy who is always showing up at Jocasta's home and has some authority in the community... lawyer? Magistrate? I barely remember and I could be wrong. But I wonder with this announcement if he'll be a bigger character on the show.
MacNeil will be portrayed by Craig McGinlay who definitely needs a bigger role because he's rather easy on the eyes. And apparently giving Sam a run for his money....
Outlander has cast Colin McFarland as Ulysses for the 4th season of Outlander. Ulysses is the butler of the River Run plantation in North Carolina. As readers of Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling Outlander novels are aware, Ulysses is a well-educated and musically inclined man who was sold into slavery when he was young. He’s acquired by Hector Cameron and becomes the trusted servant of Hector’s wife, Jocasta.
McFarland's acting credits include: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Torchwood and The Commuter.
Outlander is adding some series players to their Season 4 casting.
Maria Doyle Kennedy has been cast as Jocasta Cameron, Jamie's strong-willed aunt. You may know Doyle Kennedy from her rolls in Orphan Black, Downton Abbey, Dexter, Albert Nobbs, The Tudors, Sing Street or The Conjuring 2. I personally love Downton Abbey but if you want to see Doyle Kennedy shine beyond belief watch the now completed Orphan Black! She's fantastic.
Ed Speelers has been cast as Stephen Bonnet, a pirate and smuggler. Pssst. He's awful. Bonnet not Speelers. You may remember Speelers from Downton Abby, Howl, Wolf Hall, Alice Through the Looking Glass or Eragon.
Season four began filming in Scotland this week. The new season will be 13 episodes long and is based on Diana Gabaldon's book Drums of Autumn which is based on the fourth book in the Outlander series.
Now this is a development you can toast to, Outlander fans!
Another Outlander-themed wine series is about to go on the market for a limited time. The collection from Lot18 includes six wines that incorporate the names — or aliases — of Jamie and Claire.
For Jamie lovers, you can enjoy a full-bodied glass of Mo Nighean Donn, A. Malcolm, Red Jamie, or Mac Dubh. For those who prefer a perfumed cup o’ Claire, there’s Sassenach, La Dame Blanche, and Mo Nighean Donn (which is Gaelic for “my dark-haired lass”).
The collection goes on sale today, Oct. 9, at www.lot18.com/Outlander while supplies last.
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....
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.
According to Maril Davis's Q&A on Twitter, Hal (Lord John's brother) has been cast but who the actor is playing him has yet to be leaked.
We also got confirmation that we will see Mr. Willoughby though no further news there also.
There is also some publicity photos in our future because Starz just did their first major publicity stills shoot.
*Check local listings for show times. Starz apps making episodes available at 12am ET.
