We’re not even halfway through season three of our favorite Scottish time-traveling series, Outlander, but Starz just made our day.
While we patiently wait for Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) steamy reunion episode to air on October 22, the network just announced it filled two key character roles for season four, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Maria Doyle Kennedy (Orphan Black) has been cast to play the role of Jamie’s aunt, while Downton Abbey’s Ed Speleers (remember the adorable blond butler Jimmy?) will play pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet.
With season four production already underway in Scotland, it won’t be long until we get to see the two new exciting cast additions on the small screen.
’Til then, we’ll just have to hold on to our kilts.
