Get to Know Outlander's Richard Rankin with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Outlander is quickly becoming one of the most popular shows on television and we caught up with one of the show’s stars, Richard Rankin, to get to know more about him!

The 34-year-old Scottish actor plays the role of Roger Wakefield on the hit Starz series. Here are the 10 Fun Facts he shared with us:

  • 1. I had to change my name from Richard Harris to Richard Rankin to prevent confusion with the legendary older actor
  • 2. On restless nights, I can often be found half off/half on the bed
  • 3. I recently met Channing Tatum in LA and the first words out of his mouth were “I’m a fan.” Blew my mind!
  • 4. My longest ever gaming session was about 23 hours on Championship Manger 3. Most time played on any game is World of Warcraft with about 241 days (and that’s only my main). My favorite game is probably Fallout 3 and I’ve just realized that none these statistics seem to correspond…
  • 5. Favorite aftershave is Tom Ford. Usually Oud Wood.

'Outlander' Stars Talk the Show's Longevity at TCA Press Tour

Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies sit on stage during the Starz portion of the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour on Friday afternoon (July 28) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Outlander stars were joined by castmates Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin, as well as showrunner Ronald D. Moore and executive producer Maril Davis, to talk about season three.

Sam Heughan was not able to make it to the event, but he appeared live via satellite!

The longevity of the hit series was brought up and the producers said they will continue making the show as long as Starz will let them, and as long as author Diana Gabaldon has stories to tell, which doesn’t seem to be a problem.

“I cannot imagine a scenario where we catch up with Diana Gabaldon. She will tell us the end of the story,” Moore said (via Variety).

FYI: Caitriona is wearing Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
