NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe from The Hollywood Reporter   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe from The Hollywood Reporter

From THR:

Outlander hosted a very welcome reunion in Sunday’s episode in yet another major departure from the books.

Going into the season, fans already knew that the Starz adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s Drums of Autumn would eventually see the return of fan-favorite character Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix), Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) godfather, as executive producer Ron Moore previously saved him from his book fate of dying at the Battle of Culloden. But when he would pop back up in the story was a mystery.

More after the jump!

His change of fate had already been revealed last season when he was reunited with Jamie once at Ardsmuir prison, but his story was once again left up in the air when Jamie was sent to Helwater and Murtagh was shipped “to the colonies.” Sunday’s installment, “Savages,” revealed that Murtagh ended up in the same place as Jamie when a chance encounter with Young Ian (John Bell) led the two long-lost friends to reunite

The glorious hug and happy, tear-filled moment was short-lived, however. While Jamie and Murtagh were overjoyed to see each other, and Jamie took Murtagh to Fraser’s Ridge so he could reunite with Claire (Caitriona Balfe), it soon became clear that Murtagh was a big part of a growing rebellion of the colonists against the British. Claire knew this was the beginning of the Revolutionary War, and unfortunately Jamie was already allied with the British. They were once again on the wrong side of a coming war, both in terms of their relationship with Murtagh and knowing how history will play out.

But as of now, Heughan is happy that fans finally are in on the secret of Murtagh’s return, no matter how complicated it may be.

“We knew that we wanted to bring him back, but we were all really excited at how it happened,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re so excited for the fans to see that. I think some of them suspected it but it’s a great story. It’s really emotional for Jamie to have his godfather back and the writing here is fantastic.”
