Another popular character from the books has joined the cast of Outlander Season 2.
Dominique Pinion has been cast as Master Raymond.
A small kindly apothecary, Master Raymond is a mysterious healer with a great deal of knowledge regarding secret matters, both political and occult. Though generally viewed with suspicion by his contemporaries, Master Raymond forms a special bond with Claire.
As STARZ describes it, Season 2 "begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, and stopping the battle of Culloden.
With the help of his cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah), a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful.
Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising, and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it."
It certainly sounds a whole lot different than Outlander Season 1!
Pinion joins the previously cast Stanley Weber as Le Comte St.Germain and Robert Cavanah Jared Fraser. We'll bring you more casting news as we get it!
