Sophie Skelton will play Brianna!



Exciting news today! British actress Sophie Skelton has been cast as Brianna Randall in OUTLANDER Season 2!

Here's Sophie's showreel:



Wondering whether she can do an American accent?  Listen to this brief audio clip and decide for yourself. I think Sophie will do just fine with Bree's American accent.

According to IMDB, her brothers are named Sam and Roger. How's that for a coincidence?

You can follow her on Twitter at @SkeltonSophie.

And here's Chris Parnell, Executive VP of Sony Pictures Television:

She doesn't have to have a full on American accent... They could write it so.that Claire and Frank move to Boston when Bree is 10, for example. I don't think that would affect the story much, do you?
