From EW

Starz announced today that Gary Young will play the beloved character of Mr. Willoughby in the new season of Outlander. As first depicted in Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling book series, Mr. Willoughby is a Chinese man with a deep knowledge of Eastern medicine and a talented poet, to boot. He becomes a confidante of Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

The premium network announced one more addition to Outlander’s cast today: Charlie Hiett will pay British Captain Thomas Leonard, the inexperienced captain of the Artemis that takes Sam and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) on their Caribbean voyage.

Young, who is from New Zealand, most recently appeared in the Netflix feature Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and the Australian miniseries Secret City.  Hiett’s credits include playing William Kent in The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher on ITV.

  1. Captain Leonard is the Captain of the British Man O’ War called The Porpoise, not the Artemis! The Artemis is Jared’s ship!

  3. I’m so amazed and excited about how they are bringing all these characters from the books to life. I think the non book readers will be surprised with all these different adventures that Clair and Jamie go through.
