Starz series Outlander has become one of the most popular shows on the planet since it launched back in 2014. The show boasts a global fanbase consisting of readers of the original novels by Diana Gabaldon and newer die-hards who have fallen in love with the onscreen drama. Fans are curious to know more about the cast of the show including details about actress Lotte Verbeek who portrayed villain Geillis Duncan.
Dutch actress Verbeek joined Outlander in season one as the mysterious Gillis, whom Claire Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) encountered at Castle Leoch.
The two women formed a friendship and it transpired Geillis was a fellow time traveller with the pair later condemned as witches.
While Claire was saved by her husband Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), it was presumed Geillis had been killed.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Prior to landing the part of Verbeek had a big role in the series The Borgias playing Giulia Farnese, meaning she was already known to international audiences.
