Sophie Skelton is joining the cast of the hit Starz program Outlander. Those who have read the series of novels know exactly how important a role Sophie Skelton is about to play.

Outlander centers around World War II nurse Claire Randall, who travels through time and meets Scotsman Jamie Fraser.

Spoiler alert. The following might ruin future episodes of Outlander for viewers. Proceed with caution.

Sophie Skelton will play the role of Brianna Fraser--the daughter of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser. Viewers may be wondering why Brianna is an adult. For that information, they'll simply have to wait and see.

Outlander is the adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's fantasy-adventure novels. It has proven to be the biggest thing on the Starz cable network.

Premiering in 2014 (its first season is split between 2014 and 2015), Outlander made history for the network with its number of multi-platform viewers.

In addition to her upcoming role in Outlanders, Sophie Skelton also starred in the 2014 film The War I Knew.
