Outlander News: Season 4 Casting Announcement
Another important role has been cast for season 4 of the popular Starz drama Outlander.
U.K. actor Colin McFarlane has been cast in the role of Ulysses, the butler of the River Run plantation in North Carolina. Ulysses is a well-educated and musically inclined man who was sold into slavery when he was young. He was acquired by Hector Cameron, husband of Jocasta McKenzie Cameron (Jamie Fraser’s aunt and sister of the late Dougal and Colum McKenzie), and becomes the trusted servant of Jocasta, who will be played by Maria Doyle Kennedy (Orphan Black).
McFarlane’s extensive film and TV credits include Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Torchwood. Faithful viewers of the Hallmark Channel holiday movies will also recognize him from the Danica McKeller-led made-for-TV movie A Crown for Christmas.
Production on the fourth season, based on the fourth book “Drums of Autumn” in the Outlander franchise, began in October in Scotland.
An official air date has yet to be announced by Starz, but it is anticipated that Outlander will return later in 2018.
