*New* Sam Heughan Interview with ‘Monsters & Critics’   3 comments


From Monsters & Critics:

Sam Heughan, one of Scotland’s most popular leading men, is Jamie Fraser an 18th century Scottish Laird in the dynamic, addictive sci-fi adventure series Outlander. The story follows Claire (Caitriona Balfe) a 20th century English nurse who time travels back to Fraser’s world and begins to find her place there with the help of Laird Fraser. The brawny young Scot rescues her and so begins a romantic and erotic Highland fling. But Fraser’s attention is divided, he’s juggling far flung clan and nationalist wars and threats against his position, but he must protect Claire from the brutal realities of his time. The intriguing Outlander world is the creation of Diana Gabaldon whose four novels on which the series is based are mammoth best sellers. Outlander is a phenom, and won the People’s Choice Award this year for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Cable Drama. Part of its enormous appeal is Heughan. We had the chance to speak with him in Toronto. I have never asked an actor about his hair before, but as you’ll see, it had to be raised.

Monsters and Critics: Congratulations on the success of the show. There are so many reasons to love it, what are yours?

Sam Heughan: I love the show because I get to play a fantastic character and experience this fantastic journey and bring Scotland to the world. It’s based on these amazing books and the source material is always important for an actor. It’s been a roller-coaster!
