NEW Interview with Richard Rankin from BriefTake   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Richard Rankin from BriefTake

From BriefTake:

Outlander star Richard Rankin has one of the thickest Scottish accents that I have ever encountered. But in the transcription of our exclusive one-on-one interview with the talented performer, photographer, singer and guitarist (and yes, we asked about the guitar and a couple of questions that we sourced from fans of his), the accent becomes very familiar and comforting. While speaking to the man behind Roger Wakefield MacKenzie, Rankin provided deep insight about one of our favourite shows on tv.

More after the jump!

The following is a condensed and edited version of our enlightening phone interview with the multi-talented Richard Rankin.

Brief Take: You are wonderful on this series and you have incredible chemistry with Sophie Skelton, both in character but also in press appearances. What is the secret to your rapport?
Richard Rankin: Thank you for saying that, that’s very kind. I suppose [chuckles] I’ve just actually been saying this very thing, I think that we have a lot of trust in each other, which is very important especially given some of the things that we have to shoot together. We’re very comfortable working with each other, I think. We know that we can really rely on each other on set, even in spite of any potential disagreements, which actors are always prone to having. We know what comes out of having that trust and comfort to know that we are always there for each other in each of our scenes is very important and goes a long way.

BT: How do you feel now that Roger and Bree, and Jamie and Claire are all in the same time period this season?
RR: It’s great. It’s the first time that it’s ever really happened. We start season 5 with a wedding and I think that it’s the first time that we’ve had all of the main cast members together in one place experiencing the one thing. So I think that will be really exciting for fans, especially long-time fans, to see all of the characters that they love and their favourites all there at the same place, and it felt like a wedding. It was a lot of fun to play.

  1. What an amazing interview. Richard says that Roger is more intelligent than he is. I disagree, I think from reading the interview that Richard is a very intelligent man. Thank you for sharing the interview. Much appreciated.
