at .  Updated at .

Welcome to the fold, Sophie Skelton!

Skelton will join Outlander as Brianna, but strikingly beautiful, intelligent beyond her years, ginger-haired daughter of Claire and Jamie Fraser who has a distinctly scholastic mind-set.

Sophie Skelton

Seen in many television series outside of the United States, Skelton is a relative newcomer to these shores.

In the books, Brianna, or Bree, is Jamie's daughter, but has been raised in America, believing she is Frank Randall's daughter. 

So far, we know Outlander Season 2 will focus on Claire and Jamie in Paris as the attempt alter the course of history and prevent the doomed Highlander uprising, forever ending the Scottish way of life as they know it.

Of course, changing the future is a lot more difficult than they imagined.

With this new casting, fans can now try to figure out what else may occur and when!

Outlander Quotes

I've always known I've lived a like different from other men. When I was a lad I saw no path before me, I simply took a step and then another. Ever forward, ever onward, rushing toward someplace I knew not where. And one day I turned around and looked back and saw that each step I'd taken was a choice, to go left, to go right, to go forward or even to not go at all. Every day every man has a choice between right and wrong, between love and hate, and sometimes between life and death and the sum of those choices becomes your life. The day I realized that is the day that I became a man.


She asked forgiveness and I gave it, but the truth is I'd forgiven everything she'd done and everything she could do long before that day. For me, that was no choice, that was falling in love.
