For those who don’t already know Lord John Grey is a former British soldier that becomes the Governor of Ardsmuir prison where Jamie Fraser (Outlander lead male character played by Sam Heughan) is captured 7 years after the battle of Culloden and is imprisoned. They pair strike up an unlikely friendship that lasts for many years. Lord John is an integral part of the book series and this role could last for some years to come for Mr. Berry.
This is the official character description from Starz.
He’s a steadfast and honorable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland.
