Outlander: Why did Andrew Whipp leave Outlander as Brian Fraser?

Sadly, even in the Outlander books, Brian’s tragic demise is recounted as his family is left in shreds with English soldiers causing chaos in the Highlands.

Despite Brian dying, he lived through Brianna MacKenzie (Sophie Skelton), Jamie and Claire’s daughter after the Highlander asked his wife to name their baby after his late father.

Interestingly, Brian does later make an appearance in the Outlander novels when he features in the eighth book Written in My Own Heart’s Blood after Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin) travels through time to Lallybroch.

Roger tells Brian he is kin and is searching for his son Jeremiah MacKenzie, who has been kidnapped and taken through the stones.
