The Outlander crew was given permission to close off Market Park in Crieff for filming. Many will remember that gardens at Drummond Castle, near Crieff, stood in for Versailles in season two. So the crew is in the area again.
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.
The Outlander season 3 adaptation of Voyager — the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series — doesn’t premiere until Sept. 10 on Starz, but showrunner Ronald D. Moore and his production team are already looking toward their next challenge: transforming Drums of Autumn into a 13-episode extravaganza for 2018.
