"Outlander question time: who would you cast as Frank, Geillis, Roger, Jenny, and Lord John Grey? I always picture Geillis as Mother Gothel. Also, who is your favorite character (excluding Jamie and Claire)?"
i seriously need a minute because this ask has gotten me seriously so emotional wow
OK OMG OK FANCASTING TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!! My general stance re: Outlander is UNKNOWNS FOR EVERYONE, I think because I have such a clear vision in my head of how I see everyone? But I will try my best, so here we go!
- Frank: Well ok I’ve always assumed that Frank/Black Jack would have to be a Mr Darling/Captain Hook thing because they’re dead ringers, right? I like Jason Isaacs, which OKAY YES is a typical ass answer but um have you seen him in The Patriot? YEAH. YEAH. I’M GONNA LET THAT WASH OVER YOU.
- Geillis: uuugh Geillis is so hard to cast!!! (How do y’all pronounce that, by the way? I always end up saying “jealous” lmao idek why) I think Natalie Dormer could rock it - she’s said in the book to be young and blonde and basically a knockout, and Natalie can definitely bring the creepy witch element.
- Roger: my first thought was “idk, someone hot” lmao, which tbqh i stick by because THAT IS BASICALLY ROGER IN A NUTSHELL. Ummm I don’t see anyone perfectly as Roger, but that dude with the swooshy hair from Merlin probably comes closest - this one.
- Jenny: SOMEONE WHO IS LIKE 5FT TALL AND AWESOME.
- Lord John: LAWD IDEK. I can kind of see Jude Law but kind of like, less devastatingly handsome? Someone really blonde and pretty but also kind of reserved. And awesome, cause Lord John is awesome.
- and bonus Fergus: GASPARD ULLIEL. HE IS FERGUS OK THAT’S JUST HOW IT IS IN MY MIND.
As for my favourite after Jamie and Claire…HOW COULD I EVEN CHOOSE UGHH IDK i love Young Ian???? especially in Echo of the Bone, omg his storyline in that book kept me going through all the boring chapters my whole heart
I kind of love Colum and Dougal too, assholes that they are (did you know i read Voyager first and so didn’t even know about them till months after? like MONTHS man that seems so weird in retrospect), and Germain what a qt and we hardly know them but I looooove Brian and Ellen GIVE ME ALL THE OUTLANDER PREQUELS
but yes i love everyone, except Bree
