New Sam Heughan Interview with Showbiz Junkies   4 comments

Here’s a new Sam Heughan interview with Showbiz Junkies


From Showbiz Junkies

Sam Heughan can be forgiven for not remembering what day it is and what city he’s visiting after traveling through a handful of countries between December 18, 2015 and Starz’ Outlander press event at the Television Critics Association gathering in Los Angeles, CA on January 8th. Grabbing a few minutes with the talented Scottish actor who’s won over a legion of fans with his performance as Jamie Fraser in the critically acclaimed, award-winning series, Heughan tried to recall all of the time zones he’s recently passed through. 

“I can’t even tell you,” said Heughan, laughing. “Yeah, London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, America…”

The second My Peak Challenge has just launched and Heughan promises those who take up the challenge again (or for the first time) have a lot to look forward to in 2016. “We’ve created a 60-day workout fitness routine that’s going to be like daily videos and nutrition advice,” said Heughan.

Asked if he’d like to get his Outlander co-star Caitriona Balfe involved, Heughan said he’d absolutely love to.

As for his own personal bucket list of physical challenges, Heughan said he’d put climbing Everest at the top of that list. “That would be awesome. I don’t think I’ll ever get up there, but I’m going to be climbing Kilimanjaro this year.”

Keeping our talk completely season two spoiler-free, Heughan discussed the most talked about scenes from season one: the prison rape scenes involving his character and Tobias Menzies as Black Jack Randall. “It was very tough. It was pretty intense. I really wanted to do it justice. It was filmed over about a two week period. They were pretty long days because of the prosthetics, the mud, the blood, and the gore. It was about four hours in the morning of makeup and in the evening a couple of hours to take it off. But I think to Tobias and I really went for it. We rehearsed the scenes well with the director and the writers. We were just fortunate that they were such great scenes to play.”
