‘Outlander’ Season 2 Update: Claire’s Up For Competition Against Jaime’s Old Flame

It seems like every week we get new updates from “Outlander” Season 2 to think that the series will resume not until next year (2016). However, I am definitely not complaining! So, it has been announced that Claire is up for some competition next season… will this shake up her relationship with Jaime? A little spice won’t hurt, though.

“Outlander” has recently cast French actress Margaux Chatelier as Annalise de Marillac – Jaime’s “beautiful and charming former lover.” Those adjectives are enough to throw one out. Beautiful and charming? Oops. Well Claire, it’s time that she steps things up because this may just be a threat to her relationship.


No more details have been provided about Chatelier’s character but we’ll know soon enough. It’s not only Chatelier who’s joining the cast because French actor Marc Duret has also been cast to play a significant role in the second season of the franchise.

Duret will play the role of Monsieur Joseph Duverny, described as “well-dressed middle-aged Minister of Finance to Louis XV.” It is said that his character will come head to head with Jaime.

These new characters are definitely going to add more sizzle to the show like it doesn’t have enough yet! However, a little more wouldn’t hurt, though especially in the upcoming season where Jaime and Claire will face new challenges and will find themselves in a different setting. It’s Paris, France now! We are definitely getting classier. Also, they will be more involved in the politics so fans can expect a lot o political action this season.

What do you think of these new characters? How do you think they will fit in “Outlander” Season 2? Let us know by posting your comments below!
