Casting Season 5 Update: Got a Beardsley Twin, or William Ransome?

This week we saw a blip about and announcement for a young Scottish actor, Paul Gorman. Book enthusiasts know of the characters of the Beardsley twins, two boys that end up being taken into the fold at Frasers Ridge, which is becoming a community of misfits and families that the Frasers (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) take under their wings. With casting for young Jemmy, there will need to be at least two sets of twins for ages. Given the privacy of young children, we may not see good pictures until after season premier. However the Beardsley twins are a bit older, and they are twins who share many a scene together. That’s why the casting of a young relatively unknown, Paul Gorman is a mystery. Will he be a Beardsley, playing both roles, or playing William. Photos have come out this week showing Lord John Grey and a very young officer.

Paul Gorman has done extensive stage work with Scottish Youth Theater and is a member of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There are two film credits, Eavesdrop and Tooth. Outlander is a great vehicle for new talent to showcase.
