Outlander: Blood of My Blood Further Fleshes Out Its Cast

The Outlander prequel is coming! Starz has just announced another slew of actors who have joined the cast of Outlander: Blood of My Blood, and some are playing younger versions of characters we’ve seen in the flagship series.

Blood of My Blood centers on the parents of Jamie Fraser (played in Outlander, of course, by Sam Heughan) as well as the parents of Claire Fraser (Catriona Balfe). As such, the series takes place on two timelines: We follow Jamie’s parents, Ellen MacKenzie (Harriet Slater) and Brian Fraser (Jamie Roy) in eighteenth-century Scotland, and Claire’s parents, Julia Moriston (Hermione Corfield) and Henry Beauchamp (Jeremy Irvine), in World War I England.

We’ve already got one additional round of casting news earlier this month, and today we have more actors to add to the list. Sally Messham (A Small Light) will be playing a younger version of Mrs. Fitz, Ellen’s maid at Castle Leoch and Murtagh’s aunt. Terence Rae (Black Dog ) is playing another (albeit younger version of) a character we’ve seen before: Arch Bug, who, in the time of the prequel series, is working as a bodyguard to Clan Grant. The Outlander character Jocasta Cameron, played on the original show by Marai Doyle Kennedy, will be played by Sadhbh Malin (Conversations with Friends). Other additions include Ailsa Davidson (Halo), who will be playing Jocasta’s sister Janet MacKenzie and, in the twentieth century, Annabelle Dowler (The Reckoning) joins the cast as Lizbeth, Julia’s boss at the War Department while Harry Eaton (Extraordinary) plays Private Charlton, Henry Beauchamp’s fellow soldier and friend.

The casting news is ramping up on Blood of My Blood just as the eighth and final season of Outlander is in the midst of production. Matthew B. Roberts showruns both series, with Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis executive producing on both as well.

We don’t know yet when Blood of My Blood will premiere, but the back half of Outlander’s seventh season, eight episodes in total, will come out sometime in November 2024. icon-paragraph-end
