Vikings’ Gaia Weiss Joins Season Two of ‘Outlander’

[Spoiler Alert:  Although there is no description of characters in season two, there is mention of two in this post.]


Back in July, French actress Gaia Weiss responded to a tweet from Stanley Weber (Compte St. Germain) about filming Outlander.  It was through that tweet that we found out that she had posted some Instagram photos of her in costume and with a wig on.  It was heavily assumed that she joined the Outlander cast.  There has been no confirmation from Starz, but having seen Gaia in those now deleted Instagram photos, I can recognize her in the newly released official photos of season two.

The question still remains of what character she is playing.  Referring back to the tweets from July, TV Recapalooza asked her if she is playing Vicomtesse de Rambeau, to which she responded to with a “… no.” Another character she might be playing is King Louis’ mistress Madame de La Tourelle.  Whomever she is playing it is an important enough character to be invited to dinner at the Fraser house in Paris.

Gaia Weiss is most known for playing Porunn in the third season of The History Channel’s Vikings.  She also played Hebe in The Legend of Hercules alongside Kellan Lutz.  Gaia is 24 years old and was born in Paris, France.

    I thought I had read she was playing Annabelle, Jamie’s crush from way back when he fought a dual for her.

    She looks pretty enough & young enough for Jamie’s first crush Annabelle until seen at the Frasers dinner party. The severity of the hair style & make up at that event, age her a lot. We know Ron is changing quite a bit of the way the story is shown for season 2 but in the book Jamie bumps into Annabelle at the Palace, so this maybe a clue. She may be playing the Comte’s mistress or wife. He had both as I re-call.

    Personally, I’m guessing she’s playing the Comtesse (the Comte St. Germain’s long-suffering wife). I believe they’ve already announced that Margaux Chatelier is playing Annalise de Marillac (Jamie’s old crush), so the most likely candidate for something that appears to be this formal would be the Comtesse (though St. Germain’s mistress is equally likely).
