Who plays Phillip Wylie in Outlander season 5?

Viewers will remember how Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) first met Wylie in season four.

This was when he was a guest at the dinner party hosted by Mr Lillington (Geoffrey Newland) and he flirted with Claire.

He returned in the latest outing of the show when he attended Jocasta Cameron’s (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and Duncan Innes’ (Alastair Findlay) wedding at River Run.

During the course of the wedding, he attempted a number of times to get Claire alone as he flirted with her once again.

She pushed him away before Jamie confronted him and threatened him with a knife and told him if she ever returned, he would kill him.

Claire revealed she wanted to find out more about Bonnet so the Frasers would be able to get closer to him.

This led Jamie to confront him again in an attempt to rebuild up their business connections by challenging him to a game of cards.

Jamie bet Claire’s wedding rings for Wylie’s prize horse, causing a great deal of tension between the Frasers.

However, Jamie won and managed to convince Wylie to set up a meeting with Bonnet.

In the Starz series, Wylie is played by Chris Donald, who is an actor and writer.

Entitled The Ballad of Roger Mac, the new episode will see the militia preparing for battle as the Regulators close in.

Brianna is also seen warning her father how some believe the battle he is about to fight is the spark of the American Revolution.

Outlander season 5 airs on Sundays on Starz and Mondays on Amazon’s Prime Video.
