NEW Interview with Tobias Menzies from Entertainment Weekly   2 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Tobias Menzies from Entertainment Weekly

From Entertainment Weekly:

It was a confrontation that was two seasons in the making! Exhausted and near surrender, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) took a final stab — quite literally — at ending his long-standing war with Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).

And boy, did he!

More after the jump!

Black Jack, Jamie’s nemesis since season 1, is now a dead man. (At least, we think — who knows what kind of flashbacks could be added into future seasons of the Starz drama?) In anticipation of the epic showdown, EW talked to Menzies about filming the scene — and what it was like to lay on top of the Highlander hottie on the battlefield.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was it like shooting the battle? Was it something that got so technical that it became difficult to pull off?
TOBIAS MENZIES: No. It was good. I mean, it’s an unusual way to tie up the story because it was nonverbal. We don’t say anything to each other, it’s just like these looks and this sort of strange kind of dance of death. We were trying to do something slightly unusual with it, and it’s obviously done through these sort of slightly hallucinatory flashbacks as Jamie is lying there wounded and remembering fragments of the battle. The encounter with Jack is buried in there. It was like a strange kind of part fight, part dance, part embrace.

  1. What a face-off that was. They were determined that they would kill each other off one way or the other. When Black Jack fell dead on top of Jamie – it was as though he couldn’t really let go of Jamie – even in death.
