Campbell's Highlander Basics
As a proud member of the Church of Darius, Clan MacWench, Clan Mac WoW, Clan MacBBGL, Clan MacMINT,
Clan Denial, Watcher researcher for Duncan McLeod, protector of his friendship with Methos, his personal
massuese on the Immortal Love Train, Methos Lover #8, Duchess of Argyll, loyal subject
of Gulmaram the Immortal Gypsy Queen, and keeper of Duncan's Haven I present a brief but complete listing of characters. Phew, I'm out of breath.
Adrian Paul as Duncan McLeod
Adrian Paul plays the immortal Duncan McLeod who
was born the the highlands of Scotland in 1592. Duncan is noted for his
many loves--Deborah, Little Deer, Tessa, Anne, and finally his immortal
companion, Amanda. Adrian is rumored to be working on the fourth Highlander
film with fellow MacLeod Christopher Lambert
Jim Byrnes as Joe Dawson
Jim plays Duncan's watcher Joe who spends his days
tracking Duncan and his adventures as well as chronicaling the immortals
whom Duncan beheads. He was recruited as a watcher because of a war injury
which left him with no legs. In real life Jim Byrnes is an accomplished
jazz musican with album "That River" on the market.
Peter Wingfield as Methos/Adam Pierson
Peter plays Methos, the oldest living immortal, who
is trying to protect his identity by pretending to be the watcher Adam
Pierson. Adam's primary job is locating Methos. His on and off character
adds depth and allure to the show as well as gives Duncan much needed advice. He
is also well worshipped among the Sisters.
Richie was taken in by Duncan and Tessa, where he
learned of his immortality. Duncan took him under his wing and taught him
the rules of the Game. Outside of Highlander Stan guest starred in a hilarious
"Friends" episode fondly known as the Ick Factor. In the final season Stan's
character has sadly been written out.
Stan Kirsch as Richie Ryan
Elizabeth Gracen as Amanda
This wiley thief is now the main character in the spin-off
Highlander: The Raven
