Outlander Officially Casting For Brianna *MAJOR SPOILERS*   3 comments


After the jump, due to major spoilers

From E!Online:

It’s finally time to meet Jamie and Claire’s daughter! E! News has learned thatOutlander is officially casting Brianna, aka Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) biological daughter. As all book fans know, season two of Starz’s hit series will be based on book two of Diana Gabaldon‘s series, Dragonfly in Amber, and that includes a huge time jump. Viewers will get to meet Brianna when she’s 20, and she is described as looking a bit like Jamie—very tall, long red hair, high cheek bones, and slanted blue eyes.

But here’s the twist: her last name is Randall. As in Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). Claire’s first husband. Who is, at the moment, back in the future, still searching for his missing wife. What?!

The official character description for the show calls Brianna a young 20-something American who’s “strong-minded, intelligent beyond her years with an effortless charm and sparkling sense of humor (traits inherited from both her mother and father). She also has a scholastic mindset, with a healthy dose of American strength, having been born and bred in Boston under the watchful eye of professor and historian Frank Randall.”

Not only will this twist surprise non-book readers, but fans who have read the books are in for a shock as well: Although Brianna is introduced at the beginning of the second book in the 1960s in Scotland, the casting call for the role says that “Brianna has secretly followed her mother back in time to find the father she never met and the family she never knew.” Spoiler alert: that does happen in the books, but not until the fourth book, Drums of Autumn. Does that mean the second season is going to borrow from future books, not just the second one?
