Robert RogersPlayed by Angus Macfadyen


The mercenary leader of the Queen’s Rangers, Rogers fought alongside Washington in the French and Indian War, where they were both soldiers in the King’s militia. He is the man personally responsible for capturing Ben Tallmadge’s best friend, the ill-fated spy scout Nathan Hale. An expert in guerrilla combat and a skilled spy hunter, Rogers set his sights on Ben and planned to set a trap by using his brother Samuel as bait. When Rogers discovered that Samuel died on a prison ship, he remained undeterred, deciding to use Selah Strong as a decoy instead. At the end of season one, Rogers breaks the military rules of engagement and disrupts an official prisoner exchange, prompting John Andre to remove him from his command of the Queen’s Rangers, and leaving Rogers with nothing.
