‘Outlander: Blood Of My Blood’ Finds Its Young Murtagh, MacKenzie Brothers & Ned Gowan


Clan Fraser for the Starz prequel series Outlander: Blood of My Blood has welcomed four new actors into its ranks.

Playing the role of young Murtagh Fitzgibbons Fraser is Rory Alexander (Inland), taking over from Duncan LaCroix. Sam Retford (The Bolelyns: A Scandalous Family) joins as the headstrong Dougal MacKenzie, with Séamus McLean Ross (Payback) portraying his shrewd older brother Colum MacKenzie. Conor MacNeill (Industry) steps into the role of the faithful advisor and voice of reason, Ned Gowan, previously played by Graham McTavish, Gary Lewis, and Bill Paterson.

These new cast members will join previously confirmed actors Jeremy Irvine, Hermione Corfield, Jamie Roy, Harriet Slater, and Tony Curran.


Blood of My Blood will delve into the lives and relationships of Jamie's parents, Ellen MacKenzie (Slater) and Brian Fraser (Roy), and Claire's parents, Julia Moriston (Corfield) and Henry Beauchamp (Irvine). The 10-episode series will focus on parallel love stories in two different time periods, with Jamie's parents in 18th-century Scotland and Claire's parents in World War I-era England.

Showrunner and executive producer Matthew B. Roberts expressed excitement about expanding the Season 1 cast with beloved characters from the Outlander universe. The series, set to celebrate its 10th anniversary this summer, will air the remaining eight episodes of its seventh season later this year and is confirmed for an eighth season, with production beginning soon in Scotland.
