Richard Rankin (‘Outlander’) on playing ‘fish out of water’ Roger MacKenzie [Exclusive Video Interview]
“A fish out of water is exactly how I would describe Roger in Season 5, he’s very much out of his depth,” declares Richard Rankin about playing the loveable Roger MacKenzie (aka Roger Wakefield), a thoroughly modern man stuck in the wild 18th Century in Starz’s “Outlander.”

“He doesn’t know how to hunt, he doesn’t know how to shoot, he doesn’t know how to do a lot of the things that are taken for granted of a male of his age in that time period,” he explains. “But he’s really intelligent, he’s very much a diplomat, he’s a man who is very good with language, with words, he’s an orator, he’s good at problem-solving [and] that was a lot of fun to play.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Rankin above.
