Audrey Brisson Joins the Season Two ‘Outlander’ Cast

Audrey Brisson 2

News came this evening that Audrey Brisson has joined the second season of Outlander in the role of Sister Angelique.  TV Wise reports that this is a guest starring role, but with the potential to reappear in other episodes.

Sister Angelique will no doubt be one of the nuns present in the L’Hopital Des Anges in Paris.  This is the hospital that Claire begins to volunteer at after Jamie and Claire move there.  Sister Angelique first appears in Chapter 12 of Dragonfly in Amber.  She is described as short, with a plump features and a pudgy face.  I think it is safe to say that she will not fit the physical description of the character.

Audrey Brisson has appeared in Hereafter and W.E..  Here is her personal information from her Facebook Page:

Audrey Brisson-Jutras is a Canadian singer and performer, known for her work as the original singer and character of Zoë in Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam.

Brisson-Jutras was cast as the leading character of Quidam when the show opened in 1996. She sang on the first American Tour, and sang partly in the European tour.

    What lovely eyes! She will have the soulfull eyes of many a nun. I wish her every success

    Sister Angelique is nearly six feet tall, gaunt and rawboned, with an ugly face, according to D. G.’s description in the book (not short and chubby per your description). Also in her early 60s. please tell me how anything about this attractive, young performer epitomizes that.

      Nope, I took that description directly from the book. You are thinking of Mother Hildegarde.

    Please, for the role of Roger I’ve always had Alexis Denisof from the Angel program and recently Grimm. When I was reading the books, Whenever Roger was mentioned I always had Alexis Denisof in my mind. He’s a very good actor whether he plays a good or a bad guy. I hope you pick him…
