Actresses Hannah James and Tayna Reynolds will play the Dunsany sisters, whom Jamie Fraser meets while serving parole from prison after he survives the Battle of Culloden only to find himself in a Claire-less world. If you've read the books, you already know that [HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILERS] Geneva blackmails Jamie into having sex with her before her arranged marriage to a much older man she doesn't desire, and she becomes pregnant with Jamie's son, William Ransom. After Geneva dies in childbirth, Isobel marries Lord John Grey and the two raise William together. [/SPOILERS]
