We welcomed him aboard a while back, but now we have confirmation! Another Welshman, (that’s 3 now – Kyle Rees, Mark Lewis Jones, and now Alex), Alexander Vlahos is playing Allan Christie! You’ll maybe know him from his role as Philippe, Duke of Orléans, in the television series Versailles. Alex Vlahos is 32 years old.
Carole Braun of Outlander Forever, was the first of many to suggest that Alex Vlahos might have been cast as Allan Christie. That hadn’t occurred to me, when I did my piece Alexander Vlahos Heads to Scotland, (I thought he wold be playing Bobby Higgins), but when I read that, I thought hmmmm. Allan is described in ABOSAA as having black hair, fair skin, and big grey eyes. That works. While I was pulling together that post, I found this clip of Alex, playing a dark character…
After I saw this, I thought, “Yeah, Allan Christie is a definite possibility.” And here is confirmation! I believe Bobby Higgins probably didn’t make the cut, and the Allan Christie role will be expanded in the show.
Here is his intro…
Last but *certainly* not least… meet Alexander Vlahos (@vlavla) AKA our Allan Christie. Son to Tom and brother to Malva, Allan is highly protective of his family as they settle into this new environment. #Outlander pic.twitter.com/7xMJPUtswB

I have a feeling that keeping a lid on being cast + lockdown has been hard on this energetic fellow!

Welcome, again, Alex! Can’t wait to see your Allan! (😬)
If this guy likes to dance, we need Paul Donnelly to put together a wee Tik Tok sesh of all three of these guys doing “Savage.”
We need @thePaulDonnelly to get you two coordinated for a Tik Tok of Savage baby!! Let's see it!
