NEW Interview with The Cast and Crew of Outlander from Entertainment Weekly   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with The Cast and Crew of Outlander from Entertainment Weekly


After three seasons, a hit show like Outlander is bound to unleash a prima donna. But of all the big personalities on the Starz drama, nobody expected it to be him.

More after the jump!

While shooting the first episode of the new season, Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) is doing multiple takes where he sings a Gaelic dirge in a dark and sweltering pub. But it’s not the star’s more-than-adequate crooning that is prompting the starts and stops. It’s the presence of a Northern Inuit puppy that plays Rollo, a half-wolf companion of Jamie’s nephew Ian (John Bell) that’s supposed to play a big role in the coming season (premiering Nov. 4 at 8 p.m.). Just when Heughan strikes a perfect tone with his lament, the dog ambles off camera.

“He was a bit of a diva,” admits Bell after shooting the scene last October. “He ended up getting cut out of a lot of scenes. The bloopers are quite funny. It’s me constantly going, ‘Rollo, Rollo,’ and he’s just completely walking in the wrong direction.”

Well, they are supposed to be in the land of the free, right? After a storm swept their ship from the Caribbean coast to a Georgia beach in the season 3 finale, Scottish Highlander Jamie and his time-traveling surgeon wife, Claire (Caitriona Balfe), shake off their sandy clothes and, along with Ian and their brood, make their way to Wilmington, N.C. Say goodbye to the kilts and castles, lassies. They’re in America now! “There’s an opportunity for a new beginning, a fresh start,” explains Balfe, 39. “Of course there are trials and tribulations. But overall I would say it’s much more hopeful this season.”

  1. It was such a sweet and sad moment – the lament for Gavin Hayes. Sam Heughan is a man of many talents – his singing was quite catchy. A great interview.
