Who Plays Tom Christie In Outlander?

"Outlander" has slowly, but surely become a mainstay of the Starz lineup ever since it debuted in 2014. A sci-fi romance series based on novels of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, the series has long been anchored by the romance between Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Randall (Caitríona Balfe). Still, it has also introduced a robust assortment of supporting characters to serve as both villains and allies to the leads of the time-bending series.

A new addition for Season 6, Christie is an established character in the "Outlander" book series who will finally make his way to the screen when the new season premieres on March 6.
