From Departures Magazine:
“I have an obsession with the color green. It’s a color of opposites. Green is life, growth, and health. It’s also sickness, gree, and envy. It’s good and bad at once. And it’s everywhere this afternoon as I sit down with actor, producer, author, and entrepreneur Sam Heughan – most recognized for his starring rol in the Scotland-based time travel drama ‘Outlander’….”

Outlander star Lauren Lyle is “totally” up for reprising her role as Marsali MacKimmie Fraser in the Starz drama’s eighth and final season.
Marsali and Fergus (César Domby) were last seen in season six when they left Fraser’s Ridge in search of a better life for their children, and while they didn’t appear in the first half of season seven, and Lyle has confirmed to us that they won’t appear in part two either, she did say that she would “absolutely” return for season eight if she was asked to.
Speaking exclusively to to Digital Spy for the release of her new movie Mercy Falls, the actress continued: “I love Marsali. She was the character that changed my life.

Maril Davis Interview for She Knows on the Mid Season Finale, Caitríona Directing, Upcoming Fan Favourites, and Details on Season 8
From She Knows:
Davis sat down with us on the 9-year anniversary of when Outlander first aired on Starz. “It is kind of hard to believe it’s been 9 years, it feels like yesterday we just (kind of started),” she admits. There was no better day to break down the mid-season finale and talk about the future of Outlander, but also the end, than the anniversary of the long-running hit show.
First up, Davis broke down the memorable Claire Fraser sword scene and pretty much confirmed Balfe is actually a bonnie wee swordsman. “She wields that pretty well, huh? I’m like, ‘Have you done this before?’” Davis recalls, “somehow that sword disappeared, I wonder where it is now?” She shed a little light on what it was like shooting the legendary sword scene, revealing that in the book it’s “quite a long scene!” “Certainly, there were discussions early on, could we cut that scene down a little bit, but we all decided, you know what, it was so iconic, and it’s such a powerful Jamie-Claire scene. You know I love that dynamic between them, that she basically wants to kill him, because he was almost killed. That is the Jamie and Claire.” Simply put, “That is quintessential Jamie and Claire, quintessential Sam and Caitríona. And I think they always have fun doing those scenes too. You know the back and forth… I love it.”

Outlander’s Executive Producer Maril Davis discusses the second half of Season 7
From TV Guide:
Fans of the early seasons, prepare to get excited.
They say you can’t go home again, and the Frasers are about to find out if that’s true.
In the Season 7, Part 1 finale of Starz’s Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) find themselves back on the shores of Scotland and an ocean away from the American Revolution. Standing on the deck of the ship bringing them home for the first time since they left in Season 3, the Frasers and Young Ian (John Bell) are all smiles in the mid-season finale’s last shot. But executive producer Maril Davis is already bracing fans for what could be a rollercoaster homecoming.
“Home has changed, literally,” Davis tells TV Guide. “Their expectations, what they are bringing with them and their fears about walking back into a place they haven’t been to in so long really sets the table. In this case, there are some surprises waiting for them –– some good, some bad.”
The reason for the Frasers’ return is to bring home the body of Jamie’s second cousin, Brigadier General Simon Fraser (Angus Macfadyen), who was killed at the Second Battle of Saratoga in 1777. While the mission is a sad one, coming home is what Claire and Jamie had planned to do after their home at Fraser’s Ridge burned down. But they were detoured when Jamie was conscripted into the Continental Army.
Surprises may await them when Outlander returns in 2024, but first they will reunite with some familiar faces. Before Season 7 even premiered, Starz announced a slew of returning guest stars including Young Ian’s parents –– his father, Ian Murray (Steven Cree), and his mother Jenny (played by Kristin Atherton, who takes over the role from Laura Donnelly). Perhaps more than anyone, Young Ian has evolved the most since he last saw his parents, something Davis says will inspire one of the most unforgettable reunions.
“When you think about how much has happened to Young Ian since then, his adoption into the Mohawk and where he has come as a character, he has gone from boy to man,” she says. “For his mother to see him now as a man, we will see that it is very emotional for her and for him. And there was also Jamie’s promise to Jenny to bring Young Ian back home and what that meant.”
