Here is a NEW Interview with David Berry From Entertainment Weekly

From David Berry:

Poor Lord John.

Our favorite Loyalist was back on Outlander in Sunday night’s episode, “Give Me Liberty,” and the long-suffering Lord John (David Berry) was dealt another blow by his beloved Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

More after the jump!

Our favorite Loyalist was back on Outlander in Sunday night’s episode, “Give Me Liberty,” and the long-suffering Lord John (David Berry) was dealt another blow by his beloved Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

If adopting Jamie’s love child as his own son wasn’t enough, Jamie now wants Lord John to help cover up the fact that he’s decided to throw his lot in with the rebels in the American Revolution. After trying to suss out Jamie’s loyalties (the man is good at playing both sides!), Lord John gets Jamie to admit that he will be attending the Sons of Liberty meeting not as a spy, but as a supporter of the cause.

Lord John begs him to see reason and that the rebels have no chance of winning (of course Jamie knows better, thanks to Claire and Bree being from the future). But Jamie asks him to stop, or at least delay, the Crown’s men in raiding the meeting. Lord John reminds Jamie this is a big ask — but he loves Jamie, so naturally, he relents.

We caught up with David Berry to talk about returning to the Starz series, how crushing a blow this is to Lord John, and why he just can’t quit Jamie.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In the beginning of this episode, the powers that be are sending Lord John to ascertain where Jamie’s loyalties lie. Do we think in this moment that Lord John is very certain that Jamie is loyal to the crown, or is he just saying that for the benefit of the folks he’s talking to?

DAVID BERRY: I’m very pleased at your question because I thought I played it quite obviously that he was a bit ambivalent about Jamie’s allegiances there. In that moment, his mind is going like, how do I protect this man? Does he deserve my protection? Of course he does, because I love him.
