Jessica Reynolds, Mark Lewis Jones , and Alexander Vlahos
Well, it has indeed been too long since the demise of Geillis Duncan and Laoghaire MacKenzie is an ocean away. Therefore, there must be a new besom one to plague Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). She comes in the dark, pretty package named Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds). Has Claire met her match this time?
The Christies come to settle on the Ridge, however Tom Christie (Mark Lewis Jones, Chernobyl, The Last Jedi) butts heads with Jamie. There had been some issues at Ardsmuir prison after the Jacobite uprising and Culloden. In the prison, there had been Presbyterian men and Catholics, with religion coming between the prisoners. Jamie sought to unite the men so there would not be strife. Malva and her brother Allan (Alexander Vlahos), who is actually her cousin, come to live on the Fraser’s Ridge with their father.
