Outlander casts Marsali for Season 3 and releases a NSFW Season 2 gag reel

Warning: There are slight book and show spoilers below

Ahead of the hotly anticipated home release of the second season of Starz’s time-traveling series Outlander, a hilarious NSFW gag reel has made its merry way online. Oh, and we also have some great casting news to share.

Let’s start with the Season 3 casting news now, shall we? Starz has cast the key role of Marsali, who will be played by relative newcomer Lauren Lyle. Marsali is one of Laoghaire’s (Nell Hudson) young daughters (the other is Joan, but we have no casting news for her yet) who happens to be the significant other of our newly cast adult Fergus, played by French actor César Domboy.

A pivotal character in the Outlander world, Marsali first appeared in Diana Gabaldon’s third book in the series, Voyager, on which Season 3 is based, and has been in every book ever since (we’re now up to book 8, with a ninth one in the works). Here’s the official description of the character as per Starz:

Marsali is the 18-year-old high-spirited daughter of Laoghaire. Blond and lovely, like her mother, she [Laoghaire] first was introduced in Season 1, when her youthful crush on Jamie Fraser was halted by his marriage to Claire, but Marsali has a rebellious and romantic mind of her own. She knows what she wants and she goes after it – reputation and propriety be damned.

Now, on to the gag reel. As you can see below, it features pretty much what we can expect from gag reels: flubbed or forgotten lines, a lot of F-bombs, some dancing, stubborn mules donkeys and a lot of laughs. However, as I said, this one is a bit NSFW, so watch at your own peril if you happen to be at work. Enjoy!

Season 2 of Outlander will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Nov. 1. The third season of Ron D. Moore’s time-traveling saga series should premiere following the series finale of Black Sails (which should be sometime in April).
