*New* Sam Heughan’s Talks About Scotland, Outlander and Barbour With “The Week”   3 comments

From The Week

Do you ever get nervous in auditions? or indeed on set? How do you fight the nerves if so?

I do. Especially for auditions. But it’s all part of the process and nerves can help in some situations. Though I find my best work is when I’m really relaxed and concentrated.

When was the last time you were starstruck?

I’m such a sports fan. If I meet a famous sportsperson I will probably ask for a photo and totally fanboy. I met Lewis Hamilton at the airport and shamefully asked for a selfie.

What is the biggest misconception about you?

That I’m a redhead. I wear a wig in the show and I think people are confused when they meet me.


More after the jump! 

Can you name 5 places in Scotland (or indeed Edinburgh) that everyone should visit?

Skye: magical.

Edinburgh: Arthur’s Seat which has great views of Edinburgh.

Glen Coe: intimidating and beautiful.

Islay: Whisky nirvana.

Shetland: if you can get that far!

How is your history knowledge these days given that Outlander is all about time travel?

We are currently shooting Season 4 in Scotland which is set in America, in its infancy. It’s a melting pot of cultures and interesting to see that all these Scottish people settled there. It really wasn’t that long ago. The similarities with the Native Americans and Scottish clan culture are interesting and it’s been fun to have 100 Mohawk populating the highlands of Scotland. The locals don’t know what to think!

If you could time travel in your own life – just for a day and back – which age would you go back to and what would you do?

I enjoyed drama school. It was exciting and experimental. Student life is tough but I made some of my best friends there.
