The wait is over, Outlander fans: Starz has finally found the young woman who will play the daughter of Jamie and Claire.
Newcomer Sophie Skelton has been cast to play Brianna in the series adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling books, EW has learned. For those who don’t know the character, Brianna is described as a striking, redheaded young woman who is strong-minded and intelligent beyond her years.
Season 2 of Outlander will find Jamie and Claire in France, but before the show forges ahead with new episodes, series star Caitriona Balfe reflected on a “pinch yourself” moment from the show’s first season.
Speaking with PEOPLE and EW on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday, where she was nominated for best actress in a drama series, Balfe was asked about her favorite scene from the show so far.
If a room full of monkeys banging on typewriters for an infinite amount of time would eventually reproduce the works of Shakespeare, what are the chances that the whole of Twitter, cranking out 140 characters at a time, might predict the winners of the Golden Globes?
Paris might be a beautiful city, but things aren’t going to be all bright and shiny for Outlander’s Jamie and Claire.
In a new behind-the-scenes look at the show’s second season, fans get a glimpse into their French life, complete with a new apartment, fancy new clothes, and of course, stunning landscapes. But considering that Jamie and Claire are in France to infiltrate the Jacobite movement and save the future of Scotland, well, things get dirty fast.
Outlander author Diana Gabaldon had something to say about Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s deadline woes.
It’s not just about the kilts in the second season of Outlander.
Get ready, set, swoon: Outlander has tapped a new actor to join the series and by the looks of things, he’ll fit right in with the rest of the photogenic cast.
Scottish actor Richard Rankin (Burnt) will play Roger Wakefield in Outlander’s second season, taking on the role of the Reverend Wakefield’s adopted son. (Show fans will remember the Reverend from early in season 1, while book die-hards know how important his character becomes later in the Scottish-set saga.)
Outlanders, it’s time to break out some Scottish whisky and toast to the news that Outlander snagged a Golden Globe nomination for best drama series, with separate noms for show leads Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies. It’s a huge accomplishment for Outlander showrunner Ronald D.
The last time Outlander fans saw Jamie and Claire, the couple was headed for France, not to mention expecting their first child.
And in the first teaser for season 2, the couple is determined to do what’s necessary to change the past and therefore, save their future. After all, what good is time travel if you can’t do some good?

And yes, they still find some time to make out and all that good stuff.
In today’s edition of Things You Probably Already Figured Weren’t True, those rumors about Sophie Turner joining the cast of Outlander season 2 are false.
The Game of Thrones star was reportedly up for the role of Brianna Fraser, the redheaded future daughter of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jaime (Sam Heughan) in the time-travel fantasy romance.
