By  |

Another casting announcement has been made for season 3 of Outlander.

Scottish actor Conor McCarry will play the adult version of Young Jamie, the oldest son of Jenny and Ian Murray. As fans know, Jenny is the sister of Jamie Fraser (series lead Sam Heughan) and Young Jamie is, of course, his uncle’s namesake. Young Jamie is also the heir of Lallybroch.

What happens with adult Young Jamie will depend on what direction season 3 of the show takes in comparison to the book “Voyager” on which the season will be based. Very few specific details are being released by Starz, naturally.

Conor has appeared in the films Anna Karenina and Battleship; and he had a role in the TV mini-series The Night Manager, which ironically included among its cast Tobias Menzies, who appears as Frank Randall and his 18th Century counterpart Black Jack Randall.

An official airdate has yet to be announced by Starz for season 3 of Outlander, but it is anticipated to air sometime in early 2017.
