Mark Lewis Jones will play Tom Christie, one of Jamie’s “ancient foes” who is set to bring drama to the Ridge.

Jessica Reynolds has been cast as Tom’s daughter Malva, and Alexander Vlahos will play his son Allen.

It looks like they will be the antagonists of the series. Caitriona Balfe told Entertainment Weekly: “Outlander does baddies and villains quite well. [The Christies] aren’t your typical villains, which is great and refreshing.”

The actress added: “It’s a really heartbreaking, but a really twisted narrative that they all get embroiled in.”
