“Outlander” actor confesses he wanted to be which @BackstreetBoys member?

You may know him as Roger Wakefield, but Richard Rankin’ has a little musical past.

The Scotland native talked to Outlander Live! on Monday and had a little confession.

I fancied myself as being a bit of a singer when I was a teenager,” Rankin said Monday on Outlander Live! “I’m gonna just be honest: I wanted to be in a boy band. I wanted to be a Nick Carter. I wanted to be, like, a Backstreet Boy or something like that.”

My reaction when I saw the Google Alert for “Nick Carter” in my inbox with this article posted? YES! YES! World’s collide!

When the host asked if that meant he was more Backstreet Boys than ‘N Sync, Rankin’ laughed.

“I was probably both, I was probably both,” Rankin confessed.

He talks about this about 23 minutes into the interview, which you can hear below.



I'm a 30-something-year-old fangirl from Georgia, but basically grew up in Florida. I'm a former journalist, but still a writer, blogger and fangirl 24/7. Nick Carter owns me and Joey McIntyre has had my heart since 1987. I've been obsessed with "Friends" since 1995 and love Jay and Silent Bob.
