*New* Starz Casts Richard Rankin As Roger Wakefield in Outlander   9 comments

From Variety

“Outlander” has cast Scottish actor Richard Rankin in the pivotal role of Roger Wakefield, Starz announced Monday.

Described as intelligent, kindhearted, and charming, Roger is the grown up version of Reverend Wakefield’s adopted son, who we met in season one. After his parents died in World War II, Roger was raised by the Reverend (with help from his housekeeper, Mrs. Graham) and is a proud Scot through and through. Now a professor at Oxford, Roger has a keen interest in history, and all the secrets and insight it presents.

Fans of Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novels know that Roger plays a pivotal role in the lives of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) as their time-travelling story unfolds.
