It's Official! He's Roger!  
It is official! Richard Rankin is Roger Wakefield!

He’ll play Roger Wakefield, the grown-up version of Reverend Wakefield’s adorable adopted son introduced in Season 1. After his parents died in World War II, Roger was raised by the Reverend (with help from his housekeeper, Mrs. Graham) and is a proud Scot through and through. Now a professor at Oxford, Roger has a keen interest in history and all the secrets and insight it presents.

Whoa! That's awesome!! The only thing I've seen him in is The Crimson Field on PBS earlier this year and he was fantastic. He'll be a terrific Roger Wakefield. And he can sing, too!!

Sorry about all the edits. I couldn't get the picture to load.

I found them all on YouTube and will binge the entire series... lol 6 episodes.

I read that he sings and shared a sound bit of it.

No problem.

I found Richard's demo reel. LOVE his Scottish burr. There was an embed code at the site, but it doesn't work I guess at LJ.

Yes, he has a lovely burr. I hope he does it really pronounced like Roger does for Bree in Dragonfly. It would be so cute.

Yeah, I couldn't get it to work either.

I have but while very cute... pricey. Oh well.

Yeah, I think I can see him as Roger. I approve.

Am starting to wonder if they'll do the future stuff towards the end of the season. Or maybe just filming that last, which would explain the delayed release date.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 16th, 2015 01:23 am (UTC)
Well they probably are filming things out of order because is they have taken this long to find Roger and Brianna then they just had to wait. As to when they will show everything... I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Most likely, there are a lot of location changes this season, so you're probably right that they're filming things out of order. Or maybe they'll cram all the future stuff into the last episode. You never know. I'm just looking forward to finally getting season 2.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 23rd, 2015 11:33 pm (UTC)
I actually kind of hope they do the future stuff like the book... some in the beginning and then the end... really make us wait for the results. LOL
Kaylee Winchester: Outlander The Frasersroguem on December 27th, 2015 11:57 am (UTC)
Agreed. I wish they'd follow the book with the future parts.

Nice blue eyes!! I'm pretty sure that was an important characteristic in the books, although I don't remember for sure.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 16th, 2015 01:21 am (UTC)
In the books, Roger's eyes are green and there is an important reason but seeing as that reason also changed in the show... it will work.
