NEW Interview with Matt Roberts from Entertainment Weekly   3 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Matt Roberts from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Rest assured, Outlander nation: Roberts not only painstakingly adapted the important scene from Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series, he actually made it bigger and better.

More after the jump!

“It’s not just Claire’s story. It’s Jamie and Claire’s story,” Roberts tells EW exclusively. “So, we wanted to show both perspectives. In the book, you get it from Claire’s view. She comes in the print shop. It’s really kind of told from her POV. I wanted to give Jamie’s POV of the same moment. I wanted to also give the fans the moment twice. They’ve been waiting for it for a long time! So, rather give it to them one time, you give ‘em something they don’t exactly expect.”

“It was nice for me to be able to go, ‘Alright, what was Jamie feeling during this part of the day? What was he doing?’” continues Roberts. “When I was writing the script, I tweeted out a picture of and it said ‘Interior print shop, Jamie enters.’ And the fans kind of blew up on it and were like, ‘you’re changing it! You’re ruining it! You’re going ruin it!’ And I got a big chuckle out of that because I knew what I was doing. I was kind of instigating them and firing them up because I knew what I was going to give them later. And so, hopefully they’ll enjoy it. But that was the plan all along.”

  1. Sounds awesome. I am only sad that we have to wait through so many episodes to get too it. I hope the first episodes does justice to Jamie’s experiences. The books did and I am so looking forward to seeing it all.

  2. I am amazed at the amount of information coming from the cast and crew of Outlander. It has gone from “If we say anything we’ll be fired” to showing and telling us the entire season. Don’t get me wrong, if I didn’t want to know how the TV show is adapting the book I don’t have to look at the pictures or read the interviews, but they seldom even put the Spoiler Alerts anymore before they spill the beans. I’ve read all the books so I do know Diana’s wonderful story, just amazed that Ron D Moore is letting out so much about the TV adaptation.

  3. I loved reading “Voyager”, have read it over 2 times. The reconnection between Jamie and Claire is funny in parts, sad in others, and fulfilling. I wonder how the production team handled the part where Jamie and Claire go to find Gellis Duncan to rescue Ian. Hope that isn’t left out – as it is a very important part of the book and so terrifying. Life around Jamie and Claire is never boring!
