With the arrival of the Duke of Sandringham on Outlander, Jamie hopes the price on his head will be lifted. Sandringham is portrayed by British actor Simon Callow. He’s best known for his film roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral (Gareth, the fun one who dies at a wedding), Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (Jim Carrey's main antagonist), and Amadeus (Emmanuel Schikaneder). Callow played Mozart in the stage version of Amadeus before appearing in the film version.
Fun fact: Sir Laurence Olivier once told Callow that if he wanted to act he should take a job at the box office of the Old Vic Theatre in London. Years later, Callow was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Director of a Musical for Carmen Jones. Outlander airs Saturdays at 9pm on Starz.
