NEW Interview With Diana Gabaldon from Parade   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Diana Gabaldon from Parade

From Parade:

It was a death that had to happen, but one which added a great deal of poignancy to Sunday night’s episode of Outlander season 5. Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) godfather Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) was killed after saving Jamie’s life.

More after the jump!

Murtagh’s death…well, I have mixed feelings about that,” author Diana Gabaldon exclusively tells “As played out in Ep. 507, it’s shocking, heart-wrenching, sorrowful and accompanied by some top-notch acting by Duncan Lacroix, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe. I loved it!”

Murtagh is killed during the Battle at Alamance doing what he promised Ellen Fraser he would do on her deathbed: Watch over her son. Jamie’s life was in jeopardy as he was trying to talk a Regulator out of shooting him, when Murtagh happens upon the scene and shoots the Regulator–one of his own men–to save Jamie’s life. Before Jamie can say anything, one of Jamie’s own militia–who he has taught to shoot first and think later–shoots Murtagh”

  1. Great interview with Diana Gabaldon. I love her faithfulness to her Outlander books. I understand that she contributed quite a lot to episode 11 – I will not miss that one for sure. She is a very intelligent and perceptive author. I love all her “Outlander” books and the Companion books as well.
