James Fleet joins the Outlander cast (or clan) as the Reverend Wakefield.  The Reverend is the adopted father of Roger Wakefield who becomes a major character in Diana Gabaldon’s later books.  The Reverend is only seen in the beginning of the books when Claire is still in the 1940s with Frank.  I assume we will probably see a small Roger as well, but there is really not a big part for him based on the book.  Alas, like has already been mentioned in a previous post, the 1940s part of the book is being expanded upon, so you never know whose parts may be expanded also.

“Rev. Wakefield, a Scottish historian of sorts who — in the books — interacts with Claire and husband Frank in the 1940s.”

Also, in the household of Reverend Wakefield is Mrs. Graham who shows up in a ceremony of sorts around those infamous stones.

James Fleet in English and was born in 1954.  His previous work includes The Vicar of Dibley, Sense and Sensibility (1995 – playing John Dashwood), Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Phantom of the Opera, and Little Dorrit (2008).  You can check out the rest of his credits at IMDB.
