Outlander star casting boss addresses bringing in new Jenny Murray actor

Actress Kristin Atherton will play Jenny Murray on Starz, the network announced earlier this year.

 Laura Donnelley was unable to return to Outlander because of other obligations.

In Outlander season seven, part two, viewers will get to know the new Jenny

 Jamie Fraser's (Sam Heughan) younger sister, who has returned to Scotland.

Suzanne Smith, the casting director for Outlander, revealed how actress Atherton secured the role in a special interview with Daily Express.

Smith gave the following explanation regarding Jamie's younger sister's personality: 

 "Well, I think she can stand up to her brother." Jenny had that kind of spitfire-like quality, and you have to think that was always there.

"Part of what they [the producers] are looking for is that you have to believe they could love each other but lock horns together."

"Age is just a word for living," said Anne Hathaway.
