Andrew Gower (“The Village”) has been cast as Prince Charles Edward Stuart in the upcoming second season of Starz’s historical, time-traveling romance series “Outlander”.
The new season will be based on Diana Gabaldon’s second novel in the series, “Dragonfly in Amber”. In this version, Stuart is the young heir to the exiled Catholic royal dynasty and is plotting his return to the throne with the help of his Jacobite supporters. With an unabashed taste for alcohol and women, Charles Stuart is hell-bent on glory.
Also joining the cast this year is Robert Cavanah (“Wuthering Heights”) as Jamie’s Scottish wine merchant cousin who lives in Paris, Romann Berrux (“Detectives”) as a young French pickpocket fiercely loyal to the Frasers, Dominique Pinon as the apothecary Master Raymond, Stanley Weber (“Borgia”) as French Court member Le Comte St. Germain, and Rosie Day (“The Seasoning House”) as Silas Hawkins’ niece and an innocent young Englishwoman with a nervous stammer.
“Outlander” returns for its second season in 2016 on Starz.
