OUTLANDER Casting: Simon Callow as the Duke of Sandringham
More casting news: Simon Callow will play the Duke of Sandringham!
Here's the official press release. Callow is best known for his roles in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Amadeus". He received the UK Theatre Award in October 2013 for Outstanding Contribution to British Theatre.
"He seems a nice chap,” Jamie remarked. As the going became rougher, he had dismounted and walked alongside, which made conversation easier.Welcome, Simon Callow!

“Oh, aye, ye canna put too much faith in what a man seems these days,” he agreed. "Still, we got on, he and I. We’d sit together and talk of an evening, round the fire in the hunting lodge. He’s a good bit brighter than he seems, for the one thing; he knows how that voice makes him seem, and I think he uses it to make himself look a bit of a fool, while all the time the mind is there, workin’ behind his eyes.”
“Mmm. That’s what I’m afraid of."
