Maria has recently collaborated with Feist & Jarvis Cocker on a video for the song "Century" from Feist's new album. Maria writes and performs with husband Kieran Kennedy and along with the new album, they have also completed their first short film A Different Kind of Day, written and directed by Maria, produced and scored by Kieran.

Ed Speleers is a British actor who has crafted a career across both film and television over the past ten years.

Season Three of "Outlander" is currently airing new episodes on Sunday nights on STARZ.
