If you feel like you’re missing out on the many Outlander stars from the first two seasons, you can see one of them soon. Scott Kyle is joining Harry Potter star James Phelps in The Greater Game.

Outlander‘s Scott Kyle is one of the sweetest, kindest guys you will ever meet. Even though he was only in a handful of episodes, we immediately connected to Ross and were sad to say goodbye at the Battle of Culloden. It’s not goodbye for long, as he’s joining Harry Potter star James Phelps in The Greater Game.

The stage production is based on Stephen Jenkins’ novel “They Took the Lead.” Based on a true story set during the Great War, it’s about 42 men who enlisted although focused on two of them, William Jonas and Richard MacFadden. Friends from the age of seven, the two enlist together and go through the horrors of the Great War side-by-side.

It’s not just about the battles of war, either, although we know Scott Kyle is no stranger to those storylines. The stage production focuses on the lives before, starting with a journey from Newcastle to London to play football (soccer for those Stateside) and then builds up to the Battle of the Somme. It’s a “touching and emotional” play about friendship, tragedy, and football.

Like Outlander‘s focus on the battles in the Jacobite rising, this is about remembering the events and those that died. There aren’t overly political messages, except those that are naturally within the story.

Unfortunately for Outlander fans, the production is only in one location and for a limited amount of time (. Maybe if it proves to be successful, we can encourage the cast to travel with the production to see Scott in action on stage.
