Steven recently did the voice of Young Macintosh in 2012’s animated feature, “Brave.” He also appeared in “300: Rise of an Empire,” and has a role in Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficent.”

For those unfamiliar with Diana Gabaldon’s books, Ian is a character who grew up with Jamie Fraser – the two were best friends as children and got into more than their fair share of scrapes. Ian, who lost part of his leg in a battle with the English, ended up marrying his best friend’s sister – Jenny (Laura Donnelly).
