With the key roles of Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall cast, our attention turns to the other important characters in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. Perhaps the most pivotal part is Captain Jack Randall, whose doppelganger Frank Randall is Claire's modern-day husband.
And in casting Tobias Menzies, already a familiar face to HBO-viewing audiences thanks to Rome and Game of Thrones, the producers have made an excellent choice. Menzies can play both creepy and charismatic, morally ambiguous, and definitely silver-tongued.
In viewing the looks of the other actors cast, it seems, so far, that the casting is well-done.
What do you think? Do the characters look as you'd pictured them when you were reading Outlander? Do you plan to watch the filmed version?
