*NEW* Interview of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe with My San Antonio   3 comments

Interview of Sam and Cait with My San Antonio:

1024x1024-2

‘Outlander’ switches its game to juicy espionage

Time-jumping English heroine Claire Randall and her strapping 18th century Scottish hero, Jamie Fraser, endured shocking peril after peril in “Outlander’s” first season.

After being magically plucked from her life as a wife and nurse in 1945 and set down in 1743 Scotland — amid bloody fighting between English Redcoats and Scottish rebels — Claire’s first concern was simple: survival.

As for Highland warrior Jamie, his prime preoccupation was to protect this strange, yet fetching, visitor from those who sought to harm her.

Their eventual lovemaking was the stuff of legend and as explicit as can be found on cable. After all, nudity and sex know few bounds on a premium channel such as Starz.

But the couple’s torment also escalated, particularly at the hands of sadistic Captain “Black Jack” Randall of the English army. His vile behavior was all the more startling to Claire since he not only was an ancestor, but also the spitting image of her sweet husband back home.

“It was a very reactionary season. There were just events that sort of happened one after another, and (Claire) was in survival mode, so she was just really reacting from one thing to the next,” “Outlander” star Caitriona Balfe said of her character at a press gathering early this year.

‘Outlander’ Star Sam Heughan on Jamie’s Season 2 Journey

“All of a sudden we were hit with this world where we didn’t know where we were,” Starz actor tells TheWrap of returning to the Diana Gabaldon adaptation

“Outlander” lovebirds Jamie and Claire went through a whole lot in Season 1 of Starz’s adaptation of the Diana Gabaldonnovel series, and they’re in for even more.

As the show prepares to premiere its second season, star Sam Heughan talked to TheWrap about returning to filming, Jamie’s head space after the traumatic events of Season 1, and what sorts of changes had to be made to accommodate the increasingly complex timelines of the books.

“I was very excited to go back, very ready to go back, and then all of a sudden we were hit with this world where we didn’t know where we were,”  he said. “It’s fantastic to be thrust into this world, like, oh my god, who are these people, what is this world? Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) have to find their way in this Parisian world and try to understand how they fit in. It was unsettling and great, because that’s sort of exactly what Jamie and Claire were feeling on the inside.”

‘Outlander’ star Sam Heughan: Jamie has flaws – really he does.

It’s a wonder Sam Heughan’s Outlander character, Jamie Fraser, doesn’t sometimes make him jealous.

A rough-and-tumble Highlander with a first-class education, the Scottish hero of Starz’s drama and Diana Gabaldon’s best sellers is a devoted husband to his time-traveling wife, Claire (Caitriona Balfe), whose tales of the future he believes enough to try to change history.

He’s also a man struggling with horrifying memories, as well as an action hero in a kilt (and out of it).

And, as we learn in Season 2, which premieres at 9 p.m. Saturday and takes the Frasers to Paris, he’s fluent in French.

“Well, yeah, he does seem to be Mr. Perfect,” Heughan said in an interview in January.

“But he’s not, you know. He has so many failings. He’s stubborn. Very stubborn, actually. In fact, that’s probably his biggest failing,” said the actor.

Sam Heughan Reveals Outlander’s Most Surprising Celebrity Fan

The 18th century Scottish drama is even popular in deep space, it seems.

Since Outlander first premiered globally in August of 2014, it has attracted a passionate group fans from all over the world—including at least celebrity who was a TV heartthrob decades before the kilted men of Outlander took over the role.

“I had dinner with William Shatner last week and I couldn’t believe it. He’s a fan of the show,” revealed star Sam Heughan at the show’s season 2 premiere on Monday night. “He’s really funny and I owe him dinner now. I still can’t believe I met him!”
