Here is a NEW interview with Sam Heughan from The Spinoff
From The Spinoff:
Sam Heughan is farmer, fugitive and all round Scottish spunkrat Jamie Fraser in fantasy-drama Outlander, the second season of which arrives exclusively to Lightbox on April 10. Longtime fan Tara Ward swallowed her nerves and spoke with Sam ahead of the premiere (please note, contains spoilers from season one).
Well I got here this morning and it started raining, so I guess I bought Scotland with me. I went out and had a little look at the bridge and the Opera House. I love it. I think I might stay.
Were you aware that you sent New Zealand fans into a tailspin when you mistakenly tweeted our flag instead of the Australian one?
[groans] I know. Do you know how hard it is to see those little tiny emojis, whether there’s a star missing or not? I do apologise.
We’re experiencing a right proper flag debacle at the moment, trying to decide if we should change our flag.
Yes, I think you probably should. I mean, it would certainly help me when I’m finding emojis.
I’ll let the Prime Minister know. In the meantime, can you describe Outlander to someone who hasn’t seen the show before, in fifteen seconds? Go.
[speaking very fast] Outlander is based on a series of books by Diana Gabaldon. They’re best-selling novels, they are hard to pigeonhole, there’s romance, drama, there’s time-travel, there’s sci-fi elements, there’s history. It’s a dashing good yarn.
