Outlander: Get a First Look at Brianna and Roger!

But how will they be different from the books?

Sadie Gennis

The Outlander family is getting a whole lot bigger come the Season 2 finale.

Entertainment Weekly released a first look photo of Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin), two incredibly anticipated characters from the Diana Gabaldon novels on which the series is based. For those who didn't read the books, Brianna is the daughter of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) - although she was raised by Claire's first husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) - and Roger is Brianna's swoon-worthy love interest.

Think we're exaggerating the swoon-worthy part? Just check out that beard below.


Brianna and Roger become integral parts of the Starz saga going forward, so get ready to see a whole lot more of them once they make their official debut in the July 9 finale. But book readers be warned: you can expect a few changes to the Bree you knew in the novels, according to Skelton.

10 reasons Outlander's Fergus is an international treasure

"It's a scary thought because of things like the fact that Brianna's from Boston, but we decided not to go with a Boston accent. We just assumed that, given how she was raised in a private Catholic school in the '60s, she sort of had any Boston drummed out of her and she'd be a standard American," Skelton told EW.

"And then there are things like the eye color," she added. "I think people are expecting [her to wear] contacts because Bree''s eyes are blue [in the books]. Everybody will have a different view."

Outlander airs Saturdays at 9/8c on Starz.
