New Interview with Stanley Weber from Elle Magazine   3 comments

Here is a new interview with Stanley Weber from Elle Magazine


From Elle Magazine:

I’m ready to give Stanley Weber an earful when he arrives. As Outlander’s newest villain, the dapper French actor plays Comte St. Germain, a sadistic courtier who shrewdly terrorizes the show’s protagonists, Claire and Jamie Fraser. I’ve binged on the second season of the Starz series in anticipation of meeting Weber, and when he arrives at the nondescript office building in Beverly Hills, looking scruffy and suspenders-clad, I’m somewhat disappointed—there’s nary a floral waistcoat or curled ponytail in sight.

More after the jump!

Well, somewhat disappointed. Instead of the Comte’s clean-shaven sneer, I’m greeted with a warm handshake and stubbly smile. 29-year-old Weber is an extremely nice guy, not to mention a skilled actor, and as we sit outside on a patio decorated with sparse, potted cacti—a far cry from Versailles—we discuss his first day on set, making the Comte human, and what it was like filming an extremely intense (and journalistically embargoed) scene with co-star Caitriona Balfe. 

‘Outlander,’ as you know, has a rabid fan base. Were you daunted when you got the part?

I was really excited. I felt very blessed. I didn’t realize straight away that it was this big, but then I started to watch season one, and I was like, this is a really good show. The chemistry between Cat and Sam [the show’s stars, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, who play Claire and Jamie] was so incredible. A lot of people were asking me about the fan base, if I was scared, and all of a sudden my Twitter and Instagram went crazy. [The fans] have been so nice and have sent supportive messages.

  1. I think Stanley has done an excellent job of playing the evil Compt and off screen he seams such a very nice and froendly French ACTOR

  3. Stanley is not only a handsome young man but I found him a very good actor….so convincing. The look in his eyes told you everything he was thinking. I hope we see him again in other movies.
