The Highlander Team


Andy the Highlander

Andy was a self employed electrician, who had always dreamed of being an actor. He took the first step towards that dream when he joined Real People casting in 2015 and managed to get some great featured roles. When the call for Outlander came along, Andy jumped at the chance and spent about 60 days on seasons 2 and 3. He was also involved in Seasons 5 and 6. His wife and 2 sons have always filmed on multiple episodes of the show.


After Outlander Andy invested in kilts, swords, muskets, targes and full Jacobite outfit. His video on how to wear the plaid went viral with over 5.3 million views in the first 30 days. He started meeting with Outlander fans from all over the world and immersing himself in 18th Century Scottish history. Andy the Highlander was born - he started taking people on tours and loves every minute! Andy loves to learn and share Scottish history.
