Outlander: Mystery Man at the Gathering

If you read my After the Gathering post, you will recall my suspicions and ponderings on this mysterious Sassenach type hanging out with Dougal…

I thought perhaps it might be the Duke of Sandringham as he was lurking about the Castle around that time? But, then I was made aware of the fact that the Duke of Sandringham will be played by Simon Callow!

In looking at the mystery man in our photo as compared to these photos of Simon Callow, I would have to agree that it seems doubtful or highly improbable that the suspicious looking Sassenach type is the Duke of Sandringham… unless of course the makeup department is doing an incredible job of  performing magical transformations into characters? And, they are doing just that if you take a few moments to consider the transformations of some other characters?

 

Take for instance, Duncan LaCroix… and his alter ego, Murtagh Fitzgibbons?

Or Grant ORourke as Rupert MacKenzie… Grant O'rourke as Rupert MacKenzie

And, then there is Stephen Walters and his other personality of Angus Mhor?!

Stephen Walters and Grant O’Rourke… or as we now know them better as? Angus and Rupert, the comic relief team of Outlander!

So, Yes the makeup department is capable of amazing transformations! That being said and somewhat proven, I do have my doubts though now as to whether the mystery man could actually be Simon Callow playing the Duke of Sandringham? But, if it is not him, that still leaves us with the nagging question of who is this slightly sleazy looking Odd Man out Sassenach character lurking and wandering about Castle Leoch… Who ever he might be, I am certain that he is not a MacKenzie or a Clan member!
