César Domboy is joining Outlander's third season as the adult-version of Jamie and Claire's unofficially adopted son, and the 27-year-old actor has been hard at work at adapting his favorite Fergus mannerisms.
When ET traveled to Outlander's season three set in Scotland last year, Domboy confessed that stepping into the older shoes of an already beloved character has been "weird" but in "the best way."
"It's such a great thing to start working on," he gushed to our cameras while sitting in Lallybroch's living room set. "It's the first time actually I'm catching someone else's part, and young Fergus was so good that I'm really happy that I have to be as good as him and try to keep doing what he was doing in the show."
Domboy dished that he meticulously studied Romann Berrux's portrayal of younger Fegus in season two and he purposely adopted some key on-screen mannerisms.
"Do you remember how [young Fergus was] always leaving his hands all over [the place], like a pickpocket? Trying to feel the shapes of everything around him or maybe trying to find a spot to steal something? That's something I thought was lovely," Domboy said.
"So I'm trying to do stuff like he was doing. Moving like he was when he was enthusiastic and having the same emoji face like he had, you know what I mean? And also add some more of grownup Fergus because we can imagine a lot can happen in those 15 years of a gap," he added.
