It looks like Jamie and Claire will have a complicated relationship in the upcoming season of Outlander. Starz dropped the latest Outlander Season 3 trailer, and it features another woman in Jamie’s life.
The teaser shows Jaime (Sam Heughan) with Geneva Dunsany (Hannah James). The American actress is among the newcomers along with Tanya Reynolds who will play her on-screen sister, Isobel Dunsany. The two were cast in November last year. James is known for her role as Emma Green in PBS’ Mercy Street.
Who is Geneva to Jamie in Outlander Season 3?
Geneva is the beautiful and headstrong daughter of Lord Dunsany. She has a bad temper, is spoiled, and demanding of the servants at their Helwater household. She is the exact opposite of her younger sister, Isobel.
Geneva is accustomed to getting exactly what she wants. However, she is also vulnerable because of her sheltered life. She is engaged to Lord Ellesmere and needs to practice her lovemaking skills on Jamie before she gets married.
In the Voyager novel, Geneva and Lord Ellesmere will be having a son, William Ranson, but the child’s birth father is Jamie. Season 3 is based on one of the eight books of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, titled Voyager.
Outlander Season 3 Trailer
Season 3 will pick up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in the 1940s. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her reappearance. She will also deal with its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). In the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of the historic battle of Culloden, as well as losing his wife, Claire.
Starz released the latest Outlander Season 3 trailer just in time for the show’s return at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. Aside from the main characters, the sneak peek for the third season also features Claire and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna (Sophie Skelton).
It also shows Frank raising Brianna in the 20th century. The troubled marriage of Claire and Frank was also highlighted in the teaser. Jamie was also seen arrested by some British soldiers.
Bree and Roger (Richard Rankin) will also get intimate in the upcoming season. The two, along with Claire, are also seen looking for clues on Jamie’s whereabouts in the 18th century. “We have to establish that Jamie’s alive. There must be records,” Roger says. Brianna then promises her mother that they will find Jamie.
Towards the end of the trailer, Claire is seen pointing to the name Jamie Fraser in what seems to be a log book of Ardsmuir prison. “I found him,” Claire says. The trailer then ends with Claire in front of the print shop. Outlander Season 3 recently wrapped up filming. It is set to premiere on Sept. 10, 2017.
