Ainsley Jordan joins Outlander as Claire Fraser’s rival Judith Wylie

OUTLANDER’S latest addition to the season four cast has been revealed as Ainsley Jordan, who has joined the series as Claire Fraser’s rival Judith Wylie.

Ainsley has been cast for the fourth season of Outlander, which is expected to hit television screens later this year, as the wife of plantation owner Philip Wylie.

Claire (played by Catriona Balfe) and Judith are reported to be become embroiled in a vicious spat and while the reason why has not been revealed, it could be down to Philip’s crush on the time traveller.

The new addition is also rumoured to have something to say about Claire’ fashion sense as she adjusts to life in the American colonies.

Ainsley said that she is very “excited” to be joining the cast of Outlander and took to Twitter to thank the show’s fans for their warm welcome messages following the announcement that she would be taking on the role of Judith.
