Outlander's casting director addresses bringing in new Jenny Murray star!

Actress Kristin Atherton has been confirmed as the replacement for Laura Donnelley in the role of Jenny Murray in Outlander. The recasting was necessary because Donnelley was unable to return to the show due to other commitments. Suzanne Smith, the casting director for Outlander, described Atherton as someone who can stand up to her on-screen brother, Jamie Fraser, while also having a loving but contentious relationship with him. Smith also addressed other recastings in the show and mentioned working on the final season and a prequel series.
