*New* Sam Heughan’s Interview with IndieWire   3 comments

Here is a new interview with Sam Heughan from IndieWire


From IndieWire:

It’s easy to recommend Ronald D. Moore’s series “Outlander,” based on Diana Gabaldon’s seven bestselling novels (25 million copies sold worldwide), which just wrapped up Season One on Starz, to anyone who likes a bodice-ripping historical romance.

It’s working, until she disappears after touching an ancient rune stone in a forest clearing. She’s whisked back in time to 1745, where she encounters the very same Captain “Black Jack” Randall (Menzies, natch) and falls in with a clan of Highlanders who are fiercely opposed to the British.

Heughan had challenging scenes all season long in the freshman series. The final two episodes of the drama, though, were full of emotionally gut-wrenching material, as viewers saw his character, Jamie Fraser, not just raped and tortured, but attacked psychologically by Black Jack Randall, who took sadistic pleasure in dismantling the Highlander’s spirit.
