Outlander Finds Its Master Raymond

Outlander Season 2 Raymond

Is there an apothecary in the house?

Outlander on Wednesday announced that French actor Dominique Piñon will portray the mysterious Master Raymond in the second season of the Starz drama, currently in production in Scotland.

In addition to being a “healer with a great deal of knowledge regarding secret matters, both political and occult,” Master Raymond will develop a unique bond with Claire following his introduction next season.

Piñon might be best recognized by American audiences as John Vriess, the paraplegic engineer in 1997’s Alien: Resurrection. He joins previously announced Season 2 additions Stanley Weber (as Le Comte St. Germain) and Robert Cavanah (as Jared Fraser).
