Here is a new interview with Matt Roberts and Matt Roberts from Access Hollywood


From Access Hollywood:

The cast and producers of Starz’s “Outlander” weren’t wrong when they predicted viewers would need tissues to watch the show’s Season 2 finale – “Dragonfly in Amber.”

More after the jump!

Access Hollywood spoke with Season 2 finale writers Toni Graphia and Matthew B. Roberts (who are also co-executive producers on “Outlander”) about some of the big moments in the episode, including introducing the grown-up versions of two characters book readers had been waiting to see for a long time on screen – Roger and Bree.

“We kind of — with every character we have, we treat with kid gloves. We want to make that character shine, and I think they were no different,” Roberts said when Access asked him and fellow finale writer Graphia, about getting to write the adult versions of the important characters.

“From the beginning, Ron [Moore, ‘Outlander’s’ executive producer] always said that the finale was actually like writing a new pilot, because these characters are so important that we had to think of it as it as their introduction, and that the show is a little different after they join, even though Claire and Jamie will always be the center of the show, but these guys were very important and the audience very interested in them, especially Brianna because she is… the blood of Jamie and Claire. And we knew that was a tall order,” Graphia said.

Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Mac (a direct descendant of Dougal MacKenzie and Geillis Duncan), and Sophie Skelton, who plays Bree, actually auditioned with material that was included in the finale episode.
