Here is a NEW Interview with Sam Heughan from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Whoa. Now this is a new look for Jamie Fraser.

In Sunday night’s episode of Outlander, called “A. Malcolm,” Jamie (Sam Heughan) sports a pair of Benjamin Franklin-like bifocals while working the press in his print shop. While his need for magnification wasn’t specified in Voyager, Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novel on which the show’s third season is based, Heughan thought it would be a good idea to incorporate eyeglasses to help change his image.

More after the jump!

“It was my idea,” Heughan tells EW proudly. “They [the producers] will claim it is theirs. But I sent an email to Ron Moore last year saying, ‘How about glasses?’ It’s not something in the books but I thought it would be a nice surprise. It’s a weakness of Jamie’s. He doesn’t have many. It’s nice, and it’s something we can play off. It’s kind of a disguise as well. He plays so many different characters and I felt when we first see Jamie, it would nice to see him as a completely different character, a gentrified Edinburgh man who has his own business.”

  1. Loved the new look!!!! A very new kind of sexiness for a man in his 40s!!!

  2. Now we’ll all be wearing glasses. Jamie (Sam) looks very handsome wearing glasses and actually it doesn’t change his persona at all – Jamie was a very resourceful person, dealing in smuggling, and a lot of other dangerous issues for that time. He was a very courageous man.
