He’s a Game of Thrones Alum!

“Menzies will play both Frank Randall and Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall. Frank is Claire’s 20th century husband and a professional historian with a particular interest in the 18th century and his own genealogy. Frank and Claire are reunited in 1945 after being separated by the war and rekindle their relationship when Claire disappears. Jonathan, meanwhile, is Frank’s dark and violent ancestor from the 18th century and a captain in the English Army posted into Scotland during the rebellion.

Menzies plays Edmure Tully, the heir to the House of Tully of Riverrun on HBO’s Game of Thrones. The character was last seen disappearing during the brutal Red Wedding. His credits also include playing Brutus on HBO’s Rome. The theater actor’s credits also include Casino Royale and Sundance Channel’s upcoming mini The Honourable Woman. He’s repped by Paradigm and Conway Van Gelder Grant in the U.K.” ~ Hollywoodreporter.com
