This is huge news! I'm rather excited. But I have to tell you John Bell doesn't strike me as Young Ian but I'm will to see how things go.

I know nothing about Wil Johnson but I'm so excited about Joe Abernathy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE him in the books. His role is rather minor but I've always adored the way he is with Claire and Bree. *squishes*

I have seen some (not all) of the BBC series Waking the Dead, and sort of remember Wil Johnson from that. I quite liked that series -- should go and see if I can find the rest of it online somewhere. I'm sure he'll be fine in the role of Abernathy.

If they dye Bell's hair dark brown/black, I can see him being Ian. He's maybe not quite as homely as Ian is supposed to be in the books, but then again, Auld Ian on the show isn't as homely as he is in the books either, so Bell could plausibly be the offspring of Laura Donnelly and Steven Cree!

It is true. Ian isn't what I pictured but I'm really hoping for the best.
