The flame-haired Beauty and the Beast alum certainly looks the part, and any corset-wearing that comes along with it can’t be as bad as the process it took to make her Vincent’s hairy lady, right?
We’ve already voiced our support for Gillan’s voyage from Selfie to Scotland — and anyone who thinks the comedic actress can’t handle heavier fare need only watch Gillan-as-Amy-Pond in her final encounter with Doctor Who‘s Weeping Angels.
She’s battled the Real Housewives of Chatswin, so we’re pretty sure the Suburgatory star has the pluck necessary to handle finding out that her character’s real father is an 18th-century Scottish highlander.
She was just so good at playing the offspring of a legendary redhead and a pragmatic do-gooder (on Friday Night Lights, of course), why not give it another spin?
Game of Thrones‘ late, lamented King in the North Robb Stark is darkly handsome and a sci-fi/fantasy fan favorite — plus, he’s Scottish, making the accent thing a moot point.
British actor Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia films) — shown here in character for History’s upcoming Sons of Liberty miniseries — would just have to adopt a Scottish brogue to make himself a very acceptable Roger.
Sure, it would mean Ezra would have to make a Pretty Little exit, but we wouldn’t even mind if it meant watching Harding on the premium cable (read: nudity-happy) drama.
In the books, Brianna falls for Roger pretty quickly… which wouldn’t be tough to believe with the ultra-charming Pretty Little Liars/New Girl actor in the role.
Irish actor Sheehan (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) has the right coloring and a bookish look very much in line with the scholarly Mr. Wakefield.
Copper‘s cancellation could mean Outlander‘s gain… or is that the case already? Earlier this year, a cyptic tweet or two from Ryan’s account led some to believe we’d see the Irish actor in Scotland — in some capacity — in the near future.
