“Outlander” has added two new cast members for Season 3.
Playing an older version of Fergus, the beloved French pickpocket that Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) took under their wing in Season 2, will be César Domboy, and playing one of Laoghaire’s (Nell Hudson) young daughters, Marsali, will be Lauren Lyle.
Born into a brothel, Domboy’s Fergus has grown into a charming, devilishly handsome man with a strong sense of loyalty and decorum, despite his unconventional upbringing. He is the ultimate romantic, wearing his heart on his sleeve and falling in and out of love easily. However, Fergus’ devotion to Jamie has never wavered, making the Frenchman a integral part of the Fraser clan. Still, his debonair demeanor masks a longing for a lasting love and a permanent sense of belonging.
Lyle’s Marsali is the 18-year-old high-spirited daughter of Laoghaire. Blond and lovely like her mother, who we first met in Season 1 when her youthful crush on Jamie Fraser was halted by his marriage to Claire, Marsali has a rebellious and romantic mind of her own. She knows what she wants and she goes after it — reputation and propriety be damned.
Domboy recently played Jean Dujardin‘s son in Laurent Tirard’s “Un Homme a la Hauteur.” His other credits include Robert Zemeckis‘ “The Walk” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Showtime’s “The Borgias.”
Lyle played Diane in Evan Placey’s “Consensual” at the Ambassadors Theatre and has appeared on TV in “Broken,” “Holby City” and “Radges.” She will next appear in Jimmy McGovern’s “Broken” for BBC One.
