To fans of the book series, Ulysses is a pivotal supporting character that is being watched with great expectations and enthusiasm from fans. Actor Colin McFarlane, whose credits include Commuter, with Liam Neeson, and Torchwood, has been hit with the frantic welcome wall of Outlander book and series fans on Twitter since his casting announcement and filming for season 4 began. He has leapt to the challenge and has been reading the books and Tweeting about how excited he is to be part of the Outlander family.
Colin will see his new character in three books, Drums of Autumn, Fiery Cross, and Breath of Snow and Ashes. Ulysses is the servant/slave of Jocasta Cameron, Jamie Fraser’s aunt, sister to Collum and Dougal MacKenzie, and runs River Run with Jocasta.
Colin has been enthusiastically getting into the history of Scotland for the show, as he was Tweeting with fans about Culloden. All of the new cast members coming on board this season 4 will be heading deep into Scottish history and even more so into American Colonial history.
