The life of Robert Bruce, King of Scotland in the early 1300s, has now been transformed by Netflix into an tale of feudal loyalty and romance, with plenty of epic and gory battle scenes. Outlaw King follows Bruce's struggle to regain control of the country from King Edward I of England, by convincing his fellow Scottish noblemen to fight alongside him. It may have a few inaccuracies, but for the most part stays faithful to the true story.

The cast of Outlaw King may include some familiar faces, but many of the talented actors are newcomers just starting out in their careers - though you'd never know it from their performances. If you're wondering where you recognize people from Outlaw King, here is a complete list of the talented actors associated with the show, and the American, British, and Australian shows and movies they've previously worked on. Coincidentally, several of the cast members have actually worked together before.

  • Lorne MacFadyen

    Lorne MacFadyen met a tragic end as Neil Bruce, brother of Robert Bruce, in Outlaw King.
