Double roles provide twice the fun for Tobias Menzies

Outlander, the genre- and time-spanning serial, boasts two of television’s most fascinating characters.

They’re both played by Tobias Menzies.

The series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s wildly popular novels and now in the home stretch of its second season, focuses on Claire, a lovely British Army nurse mysteriously swept from 1945 back to the mid-1700s. She’s plopped into a strange and alien existence, including marriage to Jamie, a dashing Scottish warrior, even as she struggles to return to “modern” times and the husband she left behind.

Menzies plays Frank Randall, a starchy historian in the 20th century who dearly loves his wife and is suffering her loss.

Menzies also plays Frank’s 18th-century ancestor, Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall, a cruel British Army officer with an eye for Claire who means to break Jamie, the man he sees as his archrival in love and war.
