SPOILERS FOR SURE! Anticipating Jamie and Bree Favorite Moments in Outlander   41 comments


WE HAVE BREE!  Starz announced the casting of one of Outlander’s most important roles today! Sophie Skelton is going to play Brianna Randall Fraser the daughter of Jamie and Claire Fraser.  She is described as a newcomer and I have to say I’m glad to not have a lot of other roles competing with her portrayal of Bree. I read her IMBD and was tickled to find she has older brothers named Sam and Roger. LOL, it’s kismet! I was impressed with the fact that academically she could have chosen any course of study and chose to act.  I think that bodes well for us fans and for her suitability to play Bree.  It was exciting to put Sophie’s picture side by side with Rik Rakin who plays Roger Wakefield MacKenzie.  We’ve waited a long time to see them together!

*CASTING NEWS* Sophie Skelton Cast as Brianna for Outlander Season 2   13 comments

From EW:

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.

More importantly, she’s the daughter of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan)!

The network won’t reveal when fans will meet Brianna after the drama returns in April. But in Gabaldon’s second Outlander book, Dragonfly in Amber, Brianna is introduced at the beginning before the action flashes back to Paris in the 1700s.
