The Outlander star shared a post to his social media which fans are all saying is a major clue that he’s secured a new role which would elevate his already massive stature

Sam Heughan has become a major star in recent years thanks to his role in Outlander which has propelled him into the homes of millions around the world. And it seems that his stardom could be set for another level as rumours persist that he could be set for a new major role.

The Glasgow-based actor is an avid social media user with 4.3 million Instagram followers and in his recent post, he shared a black and white picture of himself with his hand out and wrote “Expelliarmus!” The Scots actor appeared to be doing a spell from the Harry Potter books, which has raised some eyebrows.

Outlander and Harry Potter fans flocked to the comments as they reckoned it would be a great move. One said: “Love it!” Another said: “Excellent photo Sam! Team Gryffindor. I’m completely disarmed.”

While one said that they reckon that Hermione would definitely give her stamp of approval of him joining the cast. It’s unknown if Sam will join the cast for the Harry Potter show but a boss at Warner Bros, reports the Express US, said they want to make a new Harry Potter series for their streaming service, Max, by 2025 or 2026.

David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros Discovery, said: “We’ve not been shy about our excitement around Harry Potter. I was in London a few weeks ago with Casey [Bloys, CEO of HBO] and Channing [Dungey, chairperson of Warner Bros Television] and we spent some real time with JK and her team.”

Warner Bros has also confirmed the project, which will cover all seven of JK Rowling’s popular books.
