Outlander: Blood of My Blood Casts More of Jamie Fraser’s Blood Relations (and Others)

The prequel series Outlander: Blood of My Blood is moving ever forward, and Starz announced today a slew of new actors joining the project.

The show, which centers on the parents of Outlander’s Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) as well as the parents of his love Claire Fraser (Catriona Balfe), unfolds in separate timelines (for part of it, at least).

Here’s the official synopsis for the series:

Outlander: Blood of My Blood will explore the lives and relationships of Jamie’s parents, Ellen MacKenzie (Harriet Slater) and Brian Fraser (Jamie Roy), and Claire’s parents, Julia Moriston (Hermione Corfield) and Henry Beauchamp (Jeremy Irvine). The series will center on these two parallel love stories set in two different time periods, with Jamie’s parents in the early 18th century Scottish Highlands and Claire’s parents in WWI England.

As the synopsis reveals, we already know who will be playing those four core parts, with Harriet Slater and Jamie Roy playing the Frasers and Hermione Corfeld, and Jeremy Irvine taking on the roles of Claire’s parents. Today we got four more actors to add to the call sheet.

Brian McCardie (Rob Roy), Jhon Lumsden (Torchwood: The Story Continues podcast), Sara Vickers (Watchmen), and Peter Mullan (Ozark) are in Blood of My Blood as well. McCardie (who also played a completely different character, Sir Marcus MacRannoch, in Outlander’s first season) is playing Isaac Grant, the leader of his clan in 18th century Scotland; Lumsden plays his son, Malcolm, who is a potential suitor to Slater’s Ellen Mackenzie; Vickers is Davina Porter, a housekeeper and mom to Brian Fraser (a.k.a. Jamie Fraser’s grandmother); and Mullan is taking on the role of Red Jacob MacKenzie, Laird of Clan MacKenzie and father to Ellen, Dougal, Colum, Janet and Jocasta.

No news on when Blood of My Blood will come out, but the ten-episode season is now in production in Scotland. In the meantime, we also have the back half of Outlander’s seventh season to look forward to, as that’s set to premiere on Starz in November 2024. icon-paragraph-end
