Berry, best known for his role in A Place To Call Home, has been cast as Lord John Grey, a disgraced British nobleman who is the governor of a remote prison in Northern Scotland. Other new additions to the ensemble for the third season include John Bell (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), who will play Jamie’s young nephew Ian, Wil Johnson (TV’s Waking the Dead) as a medical colleague of Claire’s, and César Domboy (The Walk), the now grown-up French pickpocket Fergus, who the couple took under their wing in the second season.
