Great interview of Sam with Vanity Fair:


Sam Heughan Reveals Outlander’s Most Surprising Celebrity Fan

The 18th century Scottish drama is even popular in deep space, it seems.

Since Outlander first premiered globally in August of 2014, it has attracted a passionate group fans from all over the world—including at least celebrity who was a TV heartthrob decades before the kilted men of Outlander took over the role.

“I had dinner with William Shatner last week and I couldn’t believe it. He’s a fan of the show,” revealed star Sam Heughan at the show’s season 2 premiere on Monday night. “He’s really funny and I owe him dinner now. I still can’t believe I met him!”

More after the jump!

Nearly one year after Starz’s popular time traveling, romance series Outlander ended its first season, the “Droughtlander” is almost over for Shatner and millions of other fans. Breakout stars Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, andTobias Menzies gathered Monday evening for an extravagant world premiere event at the American Museum of Natural History, which included a party in the museum’s famous “whale room.”

“My life has changed in so many ways because of the show,” said Heughan, who plays swoon-worthy Highlander Jamie Fraser. One of the biggest changes has been seeing his face plastered on billboards. “It’s very odd. I had just come from Los Angeles and there’s a lot of billboards around the city and on buses and it’s really strange to be driving past and see myself up there,” he said. “It’s kind of overwhelming, really.”

Despite the high emotions, he had to capture the milestone moment in his career with a photo. “I may have one selfie somewhere, which I sent to my mum,” he modestly said. “Ultimately it’s those sort of things that I want my family to see and to share the special moments that I am experiencing.”

36-year-old Irish actress Balfe has dreamed of becoming an actress since her childhood. She admits she wasn’t sure if she would ever catch a big break until she landed the lead role on Outlander.

“I struggled for years as an actress and it was challenging,” said Balfe, a former model. “I wasn’t sure if it was going to work, but I was stubborn and never gave up. Now I have a job that I always dreamed of. My life has really been changed both personally and professionally. I just love the range that I get to play. It feels like everyday there is something new to tackle and I am constantly growing and changing as an actress and as a woman.”
