Here is a NEW Interview with Duncan Lacroix from Yahoo Entertainment

From Yahoo:

With every ending, there is a beginning. That axiom is as true on Outlander as it is in real life. On the same night that the Starz series bid farewell to Claire’s “other” husband, Frank Randall, it brought Jamie’s godfather and trusted right-hand man, Murtagh Fraser, back into the fold. It’s a welcome stay of execution for the fan-favorite character, who perishes at the Battle of Culloden in Diana Gabaldon’s book series, but, in the world of the show, appears imprisoned alongside Jamie (Sam Heughan) in Ardsmuir Prison in Season 3’s third episode, “All Debts Paid.” The resurrection delighted Outlander fans, who immediately took to Twitter to express their enthusiasm.

More after the jump!

For the record, Murtagh’s alter ego, Duncan Lacroix, is also thrilled to still be a part of the Outlander family. “It’s been over a year since I shot those scenes, and I was sworn to secrecy on pain of death,” the actor tells Yahoo Entertainment with a good-natured chuckle. Lacroix also faces potential execution should he spill any details about what Murtagh’s return means for the fate of Duncan Innes, a significant character from the books who readers initially meet in Ardsmuir alongside Jamie. (“If I told you, it would cost us both of our lives,” Lacroix warns when we pose the Duncan question.) Normally, this kind of deviation from the source material might upset fans, but Lacroix has his own theories about why the majority appear happy to have Murtagh back. “If there’s one character fans would want to be in the show, I think it’s Murtagh,” he says. “He’s the link between the audience and this grand love affair.”

  1. Still rejoicing that this relationship and an added element, a reunion between Murtagh and Claire, is still alive. Gives us a great opportunity to see these relationships deepen, sometime in the future. Another opp to hold our breaths for some unknown and surprising time in the future for THAT reunion. Will make that reunion very nearly as dear as the one coming up between Jamie and Claire. Imagine the tears we’ll all share THEN-again! And, perhaps, Murtagh will get to meet his godson’s daughter, AND son. Imagine that day, emotion and pride! Full speed ahead!

  2. Yes! Woo Hoo! I also approve of the deviation and enjoy having Murtagh take the tasks of other book characters. 🤗

  3. So glad they took a different turn on this one – and gave Murtagh back to us. I love his personality – and his devotion to Jamie. He is also very scrappy and feisty.
