Starz has announced two new cast members for Season three! John Bell and Wil Johnson have been cast as Young Ian Murray and Joe Abernathy, respectfully.
John Bell (The Hobbit:Battle of the Five Armies) will be playing Young Ian, Jamie’s nephew and lovable troublemaker with a knack for getting himself into scrapes. I’m not sure yet how I feel about the casting, to be honest, but overall Starz has done a great job, so I’m not going to start questioning them now.
Wil Johnson (The walking Dead) will be playing Joe Abernathy, a friend and mentor to Claire during her time in Boston.
These are two of my favorite characters from the books, so I have some high expectations. Starz has a great track record for casting, so I have faith that John and Wil will fit right into the Outlander world.
