NEW Interview with Cesar Domboy and Lauren Lyle From Parade   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Cesar Domboy and Lauren Lyle From Parade

From Parade:

Back in Season 3 of Outlander, a teenage Fergus (César Domboy) bravely faced up to a small patrol of Red Coats—partially because he was a smart aleck, but also to distract them from discovering the location where a fugitive Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) was hiding out in the Scottish Highlands.

More after the jump!

Sadly, one member of the British patrol who had no interest in putting up with a know-it-all French kid pinned Fergus down and cut off his hand with a sword. After the soldiers departed, Jamie raced down the hill, saved Fergus’ life by tying off his arm to stop the bleeding, and later vowed to look after him ever after, which Jamie has done in the years since to the best of his ability.

In chatting with Parade in an exclusive new interview, Domboy said that Fergus has no regrets for sacrificing his hand to save Jamie. After all, in truth, he owed Jamie so much.

“Jamie took him out of his life [in the Paris brothel] and that was actually worse than just losing one hand,” Domboy said. “Fergus grew up in a brothel where he was abused and where he witnessed horrible things, and I think the life Jamie gave him is enough that his loyalty will go to losing a hand. Of course, growing up he now thinks that his position in the Ridge is not secured. It’s secured by love, but it’s hard for him to find a job to be fulfilled and to help his family.”

As a result, in Season 6, Fergus is a shadow of his former feisty self and has taken to drink to compensate for what he feels is missing in his life. And nothing anybody does makes enough of a difference to snap him out of his depression.

“This is something that is growing inside him where it’s just getting worse and worse,” Domboy added.
