Catching up with Outlander Stars in other TV shows  
I was wondering how many of you have watched/are watching the second season of AMC's "Into the Badlands"? Two Outlander stars have featured fairly prominently in the second season. Stephen "Angus" Walters had a very memorable role in the first two episodes of season 2 -- in truth, the character was a lot like "Angus", but without a Scottish accent. And John "Young Ian" Bell has had a recurring role in several of the subsequent episodes playing "Gabriel".

Richard "Roger Wakefield" Rankin had a brief, but great role in the first two episodes of the 2nd season of "The Last Kingdom", playing "Father Hrothweard".

And in June, Graham "Dougal McKenzie" McTavish will return in the second season of "Preacher" on AMC.

I've been impressed with John Bell in "Into the Badlands". He looks much taller than I'd previously thought he was (or else everyone he co-stars with is short), and, given the physical demands of his role in "Into the Badlands", I think he'll make a very good Young Ian.

My thoughts are that I haven't seen any of these shows. I'm so disappointed I've not been watching and while I can't say I'll watch The Last Kingdom or Preacher I may have to look into Into the Badlands over the summer. If you can find clips of John Bell on Into the Badlands that would be a great treat and incentive to watch.

There are loads of clips from Into the Badlands on youtube, but I don't know that any of them would specifically feature a scene with John Bell. His role, while recurring, was still a minor one, and the clips would focus on scenes featuring the main characters.

I really, really enjoy Into the Badlands -- the kung-fu/martial arts fight scenes are so well done!

I'm going to have to look into this.
