Blood of my Blood news

Tony Curran , starring as King James I in new series Mary & George on Sky TV , has joined the cast of Outlander Blood of my Blood , a prequel series to the hit historical drama.

The official Outlander Instagram page confirmed the news that Curran will star as Lord Lovat, Jamie Fraser’s grandfather, as a series regular.

Ironically, Curran is a real life member of the Fraser clan – his gran was a Fraser , so he is entitled to wear the Fraser tartan in the TV series .

Fans received the bittersweet news in 2023 that Outlander would return for an eighth season – but that it would be its last.

Speaking of the story, showrunner Matthew B Roberts said: “[It will] explore what lengths a person will go to find love in a time when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain.

“The title is a nod to Jamie Fraser’s marriage vow to Claire, and there will be several names and faces that Outlander fans will know and recognise.”

Confirmed cast members include Harriet Slater (Belgravia: The Next Chapter) as Ellen MacKenzie, Jamie Roy (Condor’s Nest) as Brian Fraser, Hermione Corfield (We Hunt Together) as Julia Moriston and Jeremy Irvine (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) as Henry Beauchamp.

Many fans will, of course, recognise Curran for his roles in various movies and TV shows, including as Vincent van Gogh in Doctor Who , Tully in Mayflies and as King James I in new series Mary & George on Sky TV .

Outlander fans are excited about the prequel Outlander Blood of my Blood which has already started filming in Scotland , at Castle Leoch in January .
