Here is a NEW Interview with Richard Rankin from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

In his most challenging episode yet, Richard Rankin conveys the deepest levels of despair on Outlander after his beloved character, Roger MacKenzie, survives a hanging at the hands of the British. Book readers knew that Roger would live to tell the tale but TV fans experienced a moment of fear that Brianna’s husband would never come home to Fraser’s Ridge.

Lucky for us, Roger remains alive and well … sort of. Rankin is here to tell us all about it.

More after the jump!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY First off, how is isolation? What are you doing? How are you spending your hours?

RICHARD RANKIN Well, I’m in my den right now, I’m folding towels, Lynette. That’s what I’m doing, I’m folding towels. That’s what I’ve been doing for a week, it feels like. I’m staying active both mentally and physically, at least trying to. I have never had such an organized household. Drawers for everything. Staying fit, I try to get the exercise in on a daily basis. So I’m staying positive.

Let’s go back to the beginning of the season. Were there conversations with EP Matt Roberts about having Roger sing a lot this season because he was going to ultimately lose his voice?

That wasn’t the talk with me. I don’t know if that was the talk amongst the upper echelons. There was a lot of singing, so it had crossed my mind that we were cramming in as much music as we could because they were going to crush my vocal cords. So I had thought of it that.

  1. I love the way Richard is portraying his role as Roger – such a journey from first meeting Claire and Brianna in Scotland to being kidnapped by Indians, beaten up by Jamie and then marrying Brianna and then getting caught up in a rebellion – only to lose his voice (for someone who sings so beautifully that must be so hard). Great interview.
