One of the fans asked Gabaldon via Twitter about Mr. Willoughby in "Outlander" season 3. Much to fans' delight, the prolific writer confirmed its appearance. For those who aren't familiar with Mr. Willoughby, he is a Chinese man who Jamie (Sam Heughan) met in Edinburgh. Mr. Willoughby whose real name is Yi Tien Cho is a scholar, who used to work with the Chinese government before being sent out into exile. In his stay in Edinburgh, he had very limited resources prompting him to resort to offensive means like stealing.
Jamie was the one, who gave him the nickname Mr. Willoughby when he found him. Sinking into his depression, he resorted to drinking often landing him in tight spots. However, Jamie keeps on helping him out in return for some insights into Chinese medicine and language. Mr. Willoughby will join the trip to Jamaica according to reports.
Many fans believe that casting announcement hasn't been made until now since Mr. Willoughby is only set to appear after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels back in Jamie's time. So it's fitting to learn of the casting news just now. "Outlander" season 3 is already seven episodes down and will resume production after Christmas break.
