Outlander has finally cast the role of Brianna, Starz announced on Thursday.

British newcomer Sophie Skelton will play the 20-something daughter of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan). As Starz describes her, Bree is: "Strong-minded and intelligent beyond her years (traits inherited from both her mother and father), Brianna has a distinctly scholastic mind-set and a healthy dose of Fraser stubbornness."

Skelton has previously appeared on Casualty, Foyle's War, Doctors and Waterloo Road.

Starz previously announced that they had cast Scottish actor Richard Ranking as Roger Wakefield.

Outlander returns for Season 2 in April.
