NEW Interview with Matt Roberts and Jon Gary Steele from Entertainment Weekly   2 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Matt Roberts and Jon Gary Steele from Entertainment Weekly

Outlander (screen grab) CR: Starz

From EW:

For anyone well-schooled on the books of Diana Gabaldon, the presence of a horseshoe aboard the Artemis in Sunday’s episode of Outlander may seem like, well, a ship out of water. The crew’s routine of constantly touching the horseshoe to help with their luck wasn’t included in Voyager, the third book in Gabaldon’s series on which this season is based.

More after the jump!

That’s because the writers created it especially for this episode, explains executive producer Matthew B. Roberts. (And here’s a teaser: You’ll see it later too).

“We try to keep with the spirit of the story of the book. And we want to keep Jamie’s seasickness because that’s a big part of his character,” says Roberts. “But we also wanted to make sure we played out Mr. Willoughby’s story, so we felt [the horseshoe] helped to drive it and shows the mentality of the sailors, how they are looking for any excuse to explain their change their luck. The story goes from one person being bad luck to finding another good luck charm. It ends up being Mr. Willoughby.”
