Weber landed the coveted role of Book 2/Season 2 villain Le Comte St. Germain (pronounced Lay-comt-sahn-jer-mahn). St. Germain is a wine merchant who is a competitor of Jamie Fraser’s cousin, Jared. It is Jared who agrees to take in Jamie and Claire after they flee Scotland for France in the Season 1 finale.
Claire and the Comte have an unusual and menacing first meeting in Paris and we see the Comte throughout the second book “Dragonfly in Amber” (upon which Season 2 of the TV series will be based) popping up in Jamie and Claire’s social circles and hovering nearby throughout most of their plotting to thwart Bonnie Prince Charlie’s plans to return to Scotland.
Stanley seems to fit right in with the men of Outlander as he’s been spotted around Glasgow and off-camera with Sam Heughan and others – oftentimes in the pub!
He also shares a love of the outdoors with Sam and, it appears, Hill Walking – albeit in the mountains of France rather than the Scottish Highlands.
Stanley Weber is active on both Twitter and Instagram. You can follow him here on Twitter and here on Instagram. Look for Stanley Weber in the role of Le Comte St. Germain when Outlander returns to Starz in Spring of 2016!
What do you think of the casting of Stanley Weber as Le Comte?
