OUTLANDER Casting: Geillis and Rev. Wakefield!
More casting announcements today for the OUTLANDER TV series:
1) Dutch-born actress Lotte Verbeek will be playing Geillis Duncan! (The official press release is here.)
I don't know anything about her, except that she had a recurring role on Showtime's series THE BORGIAS, as Guilia Farnese. Just based on her photos on IMDB, though (including the one above), I think she looks just right! The casting people continue to do a wonderful job.
2) Also, according to @Outlander_STARZ on Twitter, the role of the Rev. Reginald Wakefield (Frank Randall's friend and Roger's adoptive father) will be played by veteran British character actor James Fleet. I don't know much about him, but his IMDB profile says he was raised in Scotland.
You can follow Lotte Verbeek on Twitter at @lotteverbeek1, and James Fleet on Twitter at @James_Fleet.
Very exciting to see the full cast starting to come together! Welcome, Lotte and James!
