Meet 'Outlander' Cast — What Actors of the Time-traveling Drama Look like in Real Life

Underneath those clothes and wigs, the stars of the hit historical drama television series are still impressive. Here's what some of the cast of "Outlander" looks like in real life.

On February 16, 2020, Starz has renewed "Outlander" for the fifth season. The series has brought a lot of Diana Gabaldon's book characters to life on the small screen for five years, according to The Oprah Magazine.

"Outlander" shifted between the 1940s, the 1960s, and the 1700s. It's a showcase for both the acclaimed actors and the remarkable garments they wear.

It's sufficient to make you overlook that Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, and the rest of the cast are modern-day people. This is what the cast really looks like off set.

Heughan portrays the role of  James "Jamie" MacKenzie Fraser on "Outlander." As reported by Town&Country, when he was given the role as Jamie, the author of the "Outlander" books, Diana Gabaldon, said, "That man is a Scot to the bone and Jamie Fraser to the heart."

Balfe plays the role of Claire Randall Fraser. Before joining "Outlander," she got her start as a model. She worked with several popular brands, including Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, and Louis Vuitton. That may clarify her red-carpet greatness.

Many "Outlander" fans admired Lyle for her excellent performance in the role of Marsali MacKimmie Fraser, Fergus's friend.

According to  The Oprah Magazine, she appeared in the film "Tell It to the Bees," starring Anna Paquin in 2018.

CAITLIN O'RYAN

O'Ryan plays Lizzie, the young lady Bree consents to go with when she initially shows up in eighteenth-century Scotland. 

SOPHIE SKELTON

Born and raised in Boston, Skelton plays Brianna MacKenzie in the series. Toward the end of season four, Brianna gives birth to baby boy Jem. 

As reported by Radio Times, Skelton has previously starred in "Casualty," "Waterloo Road," "Foyle's War," and "So Awkward."

Meanwhile, aside from appreciating the show's drama and action, fans also learn history. The series followed several scenes based on verifiable and exact occasions. 

Some viewers, however, discovered historical inaccuracies that were added to the show. They noted that some of the circumstances were probably not going to occur in the medieval time.
