I hope that the actress has already been found and they're just delaying the announcement while they finalize contract details or something, because (as those of you who have read the books are well aware) they can't very well film the final episode without including Brianna!
Not to worry, though. The OUTLANDER cast and production team have the situation under control! Here's Maril Davis, executive producer:
Diana Gabaldon's reaction:
@TallShipProds @kblose56 @Outlander_Starz I have the greatest confidence in your abilities! Besides, you'd look cute with red hair.— Diana Gabaldon (@Writer_DG) January 18, 2016
Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Wakefield, reacts to the news:
@shesanfran @TallShipProds @kblose56 @Outlander_Starz I can't wait! I'm glad it's finally out! The chemistry between Maril and I...blinding!— Richard Rankin (@RikRankin) January 18, 2016
But wait! Could it be that Maril has been spreading false rumors? Here's Sam Heughan to set the record straight:
@Writer_DG @TallShipProds @kblose56 @Outlander_Starz I think you'll find I'M playing BRIANNA!!!! (Like Tobias, double up) *SPOILER*— Sam Heughan (@SamHeughan) January 18, 2016
I promise I'll post here as soon as we hear any OFFICIAL news about Brianna's casting. Soon, we hope!
