Outlander Season 2: Laurence Dobiesz Cast As Black Jack’s Brother

Black Jack may be gone, but Jamie and Claire will certainly be reminded of him in Outlander‘s second season, and not just by the emotional scars Jamie now carries with him. No, a physical, walking, talking reminder of Jack Randall will be present in Outlander Season 2 thanks to the presence of his younger brother, Alex, who will be played by Laurence Dobiesz. The Wrap was the first to report the casting news.

However, the only things that Alex has in common with Black Jack appear to be the same last name and similar facial features. As The Wrap states, Alex “possesses nothing of his older brother Black Jack’s ruthless brutality. A curate and secretary for the Duke of Sandringham, Alex is described as gentle, loving, and kind.”

Dobiesz’s prast TV credits include the ITV series The Bill and the TV movies All the King’s Men (BBC) and Great Expectations (Masterpiece Theatre). Also, on the big screen, he had a minor role in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Dobiesz is the latest addition to the Outlander Season 2 cast. Other new members include Borgia‘s Stanley Weber (as Le Comte St. Germain), Hatfields & McCoys‘ Robert Cavanah (as Jamie’s Jacobite cousin, Jared Fraser), Alien: Resurrection‘s Dominique Piñon (as Master Raymond), Homefront‘s Rosie Day (as Mary Hawkins), French actress Margaux Chatelier (as Jamie’s former love, Annalise de Marillac), and Borgia‘s Marc Duret (as Monsieur Joseph Duverney).

Per The Wrap, Outlander Season 2 begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France, hellbent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of his cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah), a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful.

Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.

Production on Outlander‘s second season is currently underway. Season 2 is slated for a 2016 debut.
