NEW Interview with Outlander’s Wendy Kemp Forbes from Entertainment Weekly   2 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Outlander’s Wendy Kemp Forbes from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Could it be one of the most coveted jobs in television?

The legions of fans who watch Outlander may think so. From the start of season 1, Wendy Kemp Forbes has been paid to touch Sam Heughan — in the makeup trailer, of course. It’s her job to prepare his hair, makeup, and back scars for every episode.

More after the jump!

It’s not normal that you get to do hair, makeup, and prosthetics on a job,” the Scotland-born Forbes tells EW. “I’m really lucky that my job is so diverse.”

Yup, lucky is a one way to describe it. “I know there are people who are interested,” she says, humbly.

This is where she reveals what an arduous process it can be to prepare Heughan for his shirtless scenes. Forbes says it takes two hours and 20 minutes to do the actor’s hair, makeup, and back scars. “He’s a lovely man but none of them are that patient in the chair,” admits Forbes. “They don’t want to be in any longer than necessary.”

  1. She does an amazing job! I didn’t realize it took that long to make an actor look his part. The episodes last for 1 hour – and the preparations to get cast ready takes hours. We don’t give these folks the credit they deserve. Thank you Wendy Kemp Forbes for all your patience and hard work.
