Finally, the end of #Droughtlander is in sight! Last night, we were lucky enough to attend the red carpet for theOutlander screening at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater. As someone who spends most of her day behind a computer, the idea of interviewing actors whose work I really respect (and squee over) had me shaking like a skittish chihuahua. But you don’t say no to an Outlander event. You just don’t.

My colleague and I set up near the end of a very long press line, which the entire cast spent over an hour walking — stopping for photos, interviews and making sure that every member of the press had time with them — from big-time entertainment shows like Access Hollywood to our, um, slightly more modest Brooklyn-based romance magazine.

Keeping up the energy and enthusiasm to run this press gauntlet is a talent all on its own, so the Outlander cast has all my admiration for doing that and then entering the screening where fans had, I’m sure, even more questions for them.

Observations about the cast! In case you were wondering:

  • Lotte Verbeek (Geillis Duncan) has the most enviable hair on planet Earth.
  • Graham McTavish (Dougal MacKenzie) is one of the most physically intimidating men I’ve ever seen — tall, broad-shouldered and very handsome. Also, HE WORE A KILT, PEOPLE! Both he and Gary Lewis (Colum MacKenzie) were extremely good sports when I razzed them about being nicer to Claire.
  • In addition to looking dapper as hell in a suit, Tobias Menzies had a lot to say about the dimensions of Black Jack Randall’s character. Also? His performance as Black Jack is so good that I physically braced when he walked over. That’s talent.
  • In unshocking news, Caitriona Balfe is a radiant goddess. I got to talk her about the love scenes in Outlander, which have resonated with so many women. This was the one question that I wanted to ask most.
  • We know Sam Heughan is beautiful. But he’s also soft-spoken and deeply gracious. He stayed until the very end of the red carpet, when most of the media had entered the screening  — just to make sure the smaller press outlets had everything they needed. He also crossed the barricade and bent down to pose with a member of the press who was in a wheelchair. All the kindness and gentleness you see in Jamie on the show? That’s Sam.
