Outlander: Sophie Skelton will be playing Brianna

#Breewatch is officially over, Outlander fans can now relax. The important role of Brianna, daughter of Claire and Jamie, has been cast. The role will be played by newcomer Sophie Skelton.

Candidates thrown into the ring included Karen Gillan, Rose Leslie, Deborah Ann Woll and Lily Cole to name just a few.

As nerdist points out (fans) know the novels beyond the first feature even more time travel, and that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) have a daughter named Brianna. But wait, you may be thinking, that lady in the picture is an adult! Yup. Brianna is raised in America after Claire ends up back in her own time, leading the girl to believe she’s the daughter of Claire’s first husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). Fans of the books have been trying to figure out how they’re going to handle the time difference and the aging of the two main characters since the cable series was first announced. No word on that yet, but here is the official description of the character: “Strong-minded and intelligent beyond her years (traits inherited from both her mother and father), Brianna has a distinctly scholastic mind-set and a healthy dose of Fraser stubbornness.”

The character will feature in the second part of season 2.
