The second season of Outlander new cast member announcements continue to roll in. Here are the newest cast members to join the exceptional show. Okay, ladies first… We have a new real life Claire coming into the Outlander cast. Claire Sermonne is cast as Louise de Rohan, the new friend of Claire Fraser while she’s in France. Louise de Rohan is unwise in her behaviors, especially given her status in French society. Sermonne’s an actor of French and Russian ancestry.
The French Connection to Jamie’s heart is now cast. Margaux Chatelier is cast as Annalise de Marillac, Jamie’s infatuation while he was in France before returning to Scotland. Chatelier’s acting credits include Belle and Sebastian, Tenderness, and Paris-Manhattan.
The little brother to the man we love to hate has been revealed. Laurence Dobiesz will play the much milder Randall brother, Alex Randall. And by milder I mean nice and compassionate. He does also have a Duke of Sandringham connection and meets our fair couple for the first time in France. Dobiesz took to Twitter after news of his involvement in season two broke, saying, “Thrilled to be joining the second @Outlander_Starz adventure!” His acting credits include Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Testament of Youth.
Marc Duret will portray the Minister of France to Louis XV, Monsieur Joseph Duverney… wow that is a mouthful. He’s such a handsome French actor to be the chess competitor for our Jamie. Duret’s acting credits date back to 1981 and include La Femme Nikita and Borgia.
Thus ends the second installment of new additions to the Outlander world. We are overjoyed to have them all in the FANmily. More new cast to come…
