We have the final piece of the Outlander Season 2 puzzle, as it were. Amazon Prime UK announced today that Sophie Skelton has been cast as Brianna Randall Fraser.

From the press release:

“Amazon Prime Video has announced today Sophie Skelton (Foyle’s War) will play the role of Brianna in the new series of hit drama Outlander as the second season launches this April 2016.

“Brianna is the striking daughter of the lead characters Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), who both reprise their roles in the new season.

“Skelton (Doctors, Waterloo Road, Casualty) joins the previously announced Richard Rankin who will play Roger Wakefield, while returning actors include Tobias Menzies (Casino Royale), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Creed, Rambo), Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York, Filth), Duncan Lacroix (Vikings, Game of Thrones) and Rosie Day (The Seasoning House).

“The new season begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France determined to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion and stop the Battle of Culloden. Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as they endeavour to alter the course of history, amid challenges weighing on the fabric of their relationship. Armed with knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising, and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.

“New episodes of Outlander will launch exclusively in the UK on Amazon Prime Video this April 2016.”

A virtual unknown to U.S. audiences, Sophie has appeared in a variety of roles in UK television series.
