*SPOILERS* NEW Interview with David Berry from TV Line   3 comments

*SPOILER WARNING* Here is a NEW interview with David Berry from TV Line

From TV Line:

If discretion is the better part of valor, Outlander‘s David Berry deserves some kind of medal for our recent chat.

The Australian actor portrays the Starz historical drama’s Lord John Grey, an earnest British soldier and closeted gay man who — like many characters in the drama — quietly yearns for James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser, played by Sam Heughan. Warning: Book (and potential Season 4) spoilers ahead. If you don’t want to know, skip down to the Q&A below.

More after the jump!

Because Season 4 of the TV adaptation will pull heavily from Drums of Autumn, the fourth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, it’s likely that we’ll see Lord John (and William!) arrive in the Thirteen Colonies before season’s end — and, thanks to circumstances beyond their control, they’ll stay longer than he originally intends. If the series closely follows the novel, we also know that Lord John also will play a rather important part in another Fraser’s storyline as the episodes continue.

But Berry can’t talk about much of that right now. Production secrets and such. So while we had him on the phone ahead of the show’s Season 3 Blu-ray, DVD and digital release Tuesday, we settled for the next best thing: grilling him about gazing at Heughan, as well as getting his take on a few other Season 3 moments. Thankfully, he was a good sport.

TVLINE | I have heard that the time between your Outlander audition and shooting your first scene as Lord John was incredibly quick. Has Season 4 so far seemed like a leisurely cakewalk in comparison?

I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say on Season 4, but I can say that anything that comes after my entrance to Season 3, yeah, that has definitely been… [Laughs] I don’t think you can get much harder than that. So, yeah, absolutely. It wasn’t easy, but I can look at it with a sense of amusement now, and I think it probably helped the character in some ways. Because Lord John is always getting himself into situations he’s not always well equipped for, and just kind of treading water and trying to keep his head above water and then finding some kind of clever solution out of it. I think I found some kind of clever solution out of it. At least I managed to keep my head above water.

  1. What an incredible actor. He plays the role of Lord John Grey beautifully. He transmits so well his emotions to the viewers that we cannot help but sympathize with the turmoil that he’s going through. He’s also such a handsome man.

  2. That was a very intelligent and insightful interview. David Berry had complete control over his role – so understanding. I loved the part where Lord Grey put Captain/Lieutenant Leonard in his place. Great fun that! Can hardly wait till Drums of Autumn comes in September 2018. I am now the very proud owner of the Collector’s Edition of Season 3 “Voyager”. So happy. Thank you for sharing the interview. Looking forward to lots more about the actors and the TV show.
