Australian actor David Berry has joined the cast of Starz's time-travel drama Outlander.
The series is adapted from Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling book series "Outlander", which follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743.
Berry, who is best known for playing James Bligh in Seven Network's hit Aussie series A Place to Call Home, joins Outlander in its third season, landing the major role of Lord John Grey.
According to Starz, Lord John Grey is a steadfast and honorable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland.
Starz announced back in June that it has renewed the series for its third and forth season. The series will return to screens, with Berry as Lord John Grey, in 2017.
Outlander airs in Australia on SoHo Tv.
