It's now been over a year since new Outlander aired, and this latest "droughtlander" is proving to be predictably agonizing for fans. But one way to pass the time is to stay up to date on the various exciting projects that the show's cast members have in the works. César Domboy, a.k.a. Fergus Claudel Fraser, just joined the cast of an upcoming BBC series named SAS: Rogue Heroes, alongside a whole host of other beloved TV actors.
The show is created by Steven King, who also created Peaky Blinders, and chronicles the founding of the Special Air Service (SAS), a special forces unit of the British Army that was instituted during World War II. The work of the SAS is highly classified—which is part of what makes this premise so intriguing—but today, it involves counter-terrorism, reconnaissance and hostage rescue.
The six-part drama is based on Ben Macintyre's book of the same name, and stars Sex Education's Connor Swindells as David Stirling, the Scottish officer who founded the SAS. The cast also includes Jack O'Connell (Godless), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Dominic West (The Wire), and Sofia Boutella (Faranheit 451).
In an Instagram post announcing his casting, Domboy wrote: "Overly proud and lucky to have been enrolled, to serve in the desert and to have eaten some Sahara sand with my SAS Rogue Heroes who don’t need no capes to be my heroes forever."
Per Variety, the show will "explore the thinking that led to the creation of a new form of combat in the deserts of North Africa during World War II", and will celebrate “the glory, action and camaraderie at the heart of this story,” while delving into "the psychology of the flawed, reckless but astonishingly brave group of maverick officers and men who formed the SAS in the darkest days of World War II.”
