OUTLANDER: More Season 3 Casting

By  | 

Outlander Fans!!

Two more casting announcements have been made for the much-anticipated season 3 of the Starz drama based on the Diana Gabaldon series of books.

New Zealand actor Gary Young will play Mr. Willoughby, a Chinese man with a deep knowledge of Eastern medicine is a talented poet in exile, with an even deeper love of women. He is a confidante of Jamie Fraser (series lead Sam Heughan), speaks English well, but hides it when it suits him. He is even more of an outsider than Claire in 18th century Scotland.

Newcomer Charlie Hiett will portray British Captain Thomas Leonard, the inexperienced, by-the-book de facto captain of the Artemis. Promoted quickly due to the untimely deaths of his commanding officers, Leonard takes his job very seriously, though it weighs heavily on his young shoulders. A third lieutenant, he never thought he would be the captain of a man-of-war ship. Above all, he wants to do what is right by the British Navy — whether or not it is right by his own personal morals.

An official airdate has yet to be announced for the third season of Outlander by Starz.
