*Casting News* Young Ian and Joe Abernathy Have Been Cast in Season 3   4 comments

Welcome to Outlander Family John Bell who will play Young Ian Murray and Wil Johnson as Joe Abernathy


From Variety:

Joining Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) world in the 18th century, John Bell (“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”) will play the role of Young Ian Murray, Jamie’s nephew.

Bursting with charm, he’s more like his adventurous, fierce uncle Jamie than his farmer father Ian — but when we meet him, he is still a very gawky boy. However, he keeps trying to prove that he is a man and we will see him grow into quite a formidable one as the series evolves.

Meanwhile, in Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) life in 20th Century Boston, Wil Johnson (“Waking the Dead”) will play her friend and medical colleague, Joe Abernathy. Joe is a fellow doctor-in-training whom Claire befriends in medical school. Intelligent, charismatic, with a wry and irreverent sense of humor, Joe is a loyal confidant with great affection for Claire.

For some reason when I was reading about Young Ian that was how I pictured him looking…………John Bell is pretty close to that image. Can hardly wait to see him with the Indian tattoos on his face.

  2. Awesome! It is so fun to see the faces of these characters! I can’t wait!!!

  3. Pinned onto Outlander the Series.
