New Sam Heughan Interview with Radio Times   3 comments

From Radio Times:

The Scottish actor, who plays red-haired Jamie Fraser in Amazon Prime’s latest acquisition, talks time travel and the liberating nature of kilts…

According to Sam Heughan, Outlander is “wow, hard to define. It’s a historical romance drama with sci-fi fantasy elements.”

For him, it was those “elements” which were the big draw, as was the show’s executive producer, Ronald D Moore, a sci-fi expert in his own right who’s worked on two major series you may just have heard of… “He’s amazing. I was a huge Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek fan – it’s informed the way I think now.”

New Pic and Interview of Sam Heughan with ‘The Sun’   3 comments

From The Sun:

The 34-year-old was a barman pulling pints in a Glasgow joint when he was drafted in to hold the drinks every time the Hollywood actor went outside for a fag.

And Sam claims the big shot never once acknowledged him for his lowly, embarrassing odd job.

But the hunk is now an A-lister in his own right.

Sam — who plays Highland warrior Jamie Fraser in the blockbuster TV series, which finally arrives in the UK this week — said he’s reminded the actor of their previous encounter when they met recently.

He said: “I won’t say who the actor is but I know him now.

“It was a gig that night. I’d been serving and then this job came along — to stand at the door holding his drink while he went for a cigarette. He would just come back in and take it without recognising me. It felt weird just standing there.

“It’s funny now looking back on it and I’ve told him about it.”

From Glamour

Sam Heughan is offensively handsome. In character as Scottish highlander Jamie Fraser in television series Outlander, he looks like an advert for Scotland’s tourist board, all burly and most often seen in a kilt riding a horse. Be warned; there is a lot of knee porn in this show.

Based on the books by US author Diana Gabaldon, the show is already wildly popular in America. Its first episode in August 2014 attracted five million viewers and has caused an increase in visitors to Scotland, according to the BFI. It focuses on female protagonist Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who, after just getting married, is transported from post World War II to 18th Century Scotland. She’s then rescued by a Highland rebel amid a war with the English.

Adapted by Ronald Moore, who wrote and produced Battlestar Galactica, the series has received a lot of positive attention for its sex scenes, in which cameras roll over the best parts of both leads’ physiques – both man and woman. Ladies, you are encouraged to stare, sit back and enjoy in the way in which our male counterparts so often do.
And it’s not only the show that encourages gender equality. So does its indisputably hunky hero Heughan (mind explodes).
