Outlander cast tease details of ‘exciting’ season six
Outlander has seen many cast members come and go over the years but one of the most memorable characters in the show was Dougal MacKenzie (played by Graham McTavish). The character was the uncle and surrogate father to Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). Despite being long gone from the show, McTavish has earned a place in the hearts of Outlander fans everywhere.
What is Graham McTavish’s nationality?
McTavish portrayed Dougal in seasons one and two of Outlander before an untimely demise.
Jamie and Dougal never really saw eye-to-eye right up until the end despite both being Jacobites.
Even though Dougal may be dead, McTavish made a cheeky cameo in Outlander season five where he played Buck MacKenzie, the illegitimate son of his original character with Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek).
The star is also going to be appearing in the eagerly anticipated factual Starz series Men In Kilts alongside Heughan with the two actors traipsing across Scotland to discover more of the nation’s history.

Men In Kilts first started off as a podcast but interest quickly grew and it was transformed into a TV series.
The series is a love letter to Scotland and ties into Outlander with the duo looking at the history, culture, and land itself with a Top Gear, road trip feel to it.
The pair will be speaking to historians, artisans and experts to gain insight each week into different topics about Scotland.
Men In Kilts will also see Heughan pushing his co-star out of his comfort zone with some more active tasks, which make for hilarious viewing.
McTavish was born in Glasgow, Scotland but during his career his work has taken him all across the globe.
While the star is now settled in New Zealand, he has also lived in the USA and Canada and often travels for work.
Addressing his Scottish heritage, McTavish previously said: “My nationality matters more and more to me.
“I’ve been away from Scotland for decades. I’ve lived in Canada, England and Scotland before New Zealand.”

He went on to tell the Daily Record in 2015: “I did all my early theatre work at the Dundee Rep with people like Jimmy Logan and Robert Robertson.
“There are people I work with now on Outlander who are the same people I started with all those years ago, which is a great thing.”
McTavish said while he was growing up his father was “very political” with many conversations about politics taking place at home.
He also admitted the history and politics of 18th century Scotland had parallels to the modern-day with the growing pro-independence movement.
Along with his work on Outlander, McTavish has appeared in AMC’s comic book series Preacher, Lucifer, animated series Castlevania as well as The Hobbit trilogy.
He has also lent his voice to many videogames and animated shows such as Halo Wars 2, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
IMDb has a list of upcoming projects for McTavish including Perfidious, Blood Red Sky, The Mysterious Death of Lord Harrington, and Chasing Nightmares.
Depending on the success of Men In Kilts, the show could return for more in the future.
