The Highlander totally looks like Brendan Gleeson when he played the role of "Hamish" in Brave Heart...

I've always thought to myself "I've seen that face" when I saw the Highlander reveal... but then it hit me.

The final scene where Hamish throws Wallce's claymore towards the English as a declaration of battle. (although this custom is of ancient Roman nature and I'm not sure if it also existed with ancient Picts or medieval Scotts..) .. I'm kinda guessing maybe this scene was a first inspiration behind the Highlander... :)


If this is an homage to a great character actor, a big kudos to the development team. I like Brendan Gleeson.

They said on the Den that they took inspiration from characters like those in Braveheart, Highlander, that type of film and the actors they felt could play them. They have had sketches of him for the last four years with that in mind apparently.

This actor and Highlander looks nothing alike. The actor is far less muscular and fatty. The beart style is also different.

They probably took inspiration from pictures, tales and reality (in terms of kilt, color etc).

Highlander were never that big, that muscular and probably most of them were not even having such impressive beards ( maybe one in 1.000)

But it's just a game :))

The eyes, stubby nose, cheeks, protruded chin... you could practically swap the images between the two and you wouldn't be able to tell!

Which is another way of saying "come to think of it, he does look really similar". :D Hehe

I'd say he rather looks like Ragnar Lothbrok.

He does look nothing like Hamish from Braveheart to me though.

I can definitely see a good deal of resemblance in those profile pictures, not so much from the front however.

I see absolutely zero resemblance to Travis Fimmel though, lol.

Definitely see a decent resemblance, based on the pictures.
