Outlander just released new photos from behind the scenes of Season 4. With production winding down, producers teased a new photo of Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Wakefield, enjoying a pause in the action with executive producer Matthew B. Roberts. Fans were also treated to an image of David Berry as Lord John Grey, who might be getting a makeover this season.
The photo of Rankin shows the actor looking at something funny on his phone with Roberts while members of the crew set things up in the background. The set appears to be some kind of event or celebration and looks like it might take place in the 20th century.
This could mean that Rankin will be featured in a flash forward scene at some point this season, though it isn’t clear from the photo.
Rankin was first introduced as Roger last season. He helped Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) discover that Jamie (Sam Heughan) did not die in the Battle of Culloden, which sparked Claire’s journey back in time. We do not know what Season 4 has in store for Roger, especially as Brianna will be travelling back in time herself to reunite with her long lost father.
According to International Business Times, producers also teased a new look at Lord John Grey. The photo was released on Twitter and shows Berry sporting a more rugged look than normal. Does this mean Lord John will get a makeover for Season 4?
“We interrupt our regularly scheduled tweeting to bring you this special picture of David Berry, #Outlander fans,” the post read.
Apart from the new photos, some of the cast and crew of the show just participated in a special World Outlander Day earlier this month. Balfe, Heughan, Rankin and Skelton all took part in a video presentation thanking fans for their continued support.
The video features the actors in full costume and shows a little behind-the-scenes action. The involvement of Rankin and Skelton in the clip also hints that their characters will be playing larger roles as the series continues.
World Outlander Day marks the anniversary of the very first season of Outlander.
Production for Season 4 of Outlander has almost reached its end. The majority of filming was completed in Scotland, including the sets that depict early America.
Starz has not announced an official premiere date for the new season of Outlander, though the series is expected to return sometime in November.
