Outlander Questions

Hi Sam, how did you mentally prepare for the Wentworth scenes?

Great writing and challenging stuff, hope you “enjoy”…

Hey Sam! Can you pass along a suggestion to the Starz team? Forget the opening credits; how about every episode opens with Jamie kilting up, as in The Reckoning?? Just sayin…

haha will do…. – Sam

Admit it, you were the mystery Highlander from episode 1.

You’ll have to read the latest book! – Sam

Hi Sam! What has been the most challenging scene to film for the upcoming episodes? And thanks for being with us today!

You’ll see in the last few episodes.. -Sam

Although you are a perfect Jamie Fraser, which Outlander character would you most like to perform if you didn’t have the role of Jamie Fraser? And why? Thanks for sharing your talent.

Black Jack. What a great character.. Dark.. – Sam

Hi Sam! While you and Caitrona were shooting hot scenes have you ever felt really excited? Have you ever tried to flirt with she?

It’s all there on screen… – Sam

Sam, where in Scotland is your favourite place to visit?

Isle of Skye, as in opening music. – Sam

This photo came out a few days ago on Twitter, nearly killed our curiosity about what’s under the kilt Jamie. Does this picture is a scene in Lallybroch … *(The referenced photo is not an official one, so it is not included here. Although, you probably know the one in question)*

Watch and find out…

Sam, do you sometimes feel it is hard to live up to the role of Jamie and do you feel you are ready for the instant fame you are about to embark on?

What a great character. Yes, I’m not Jamie.

What was it about the part of Jamie Fraser that made you want to audition for the part? If you hadn’t gotten the part of Jamie, would you have tried for one of the other highlanders? Or even one of the red-coats?

Would love to play a redcoat. Great costume

Why did they change Jamie’s Fraser Tartan? I was skeptical that anyone could pull off Jamie onscreen, but you have managed it.

Jamie changes his Mackenzie tartan (whilst in hiding) to his Fraser family tartan.

Can’t wait to see you at the NYC premier. Thanks for bringing our beloved Jamie to life. Great job to the entire cast!!?

See you there!

Outlander Questions continued- Dragonfly in Amber/Season Two & beyond
Hi Sam! Have you done any screen tests with possible Brees or Rogers?

Not yet but do know a few actors who are auditioning! Exciting times!

Sam, first of all I you and your portrayal of Jamie. I am looking forward to Season 2.
Do you speak French or are you having to learn it for Dragonfly in Amber? Es to prest?

I failed my french exam! Yes, in lessons as we speak.. – Sam

Have you read book 2 (Dragonfly in Amber) yet?

Better question would be how MANY times?! Yes! – Sam

did you, or any of the cast members, have any costume/wardrobe challenges for the upcoming series?

Parisien Court will be fabulous, Terry is a genius so I imagine the costumes will be terrific. – Sam

So Outlander will make it to the storyline in America? If that is correct, will filming be in U.S.?

Let’s hope so!

Other Questions
WILL YOU MARRY ME!!??? (p.s. don’t tell my husband…)
Or his wife?
He’s not married LOL
Not yet…
I think that’s what we ALL want to ask him! hahaha!

YES to all – Sam

Boxers or briefs?

Neither. – Sam

What is the one question you inwardly cringe at when asked over and over?
I bet it’s “what do you wear under the kilt?”
Roger says he heard it all the time. didn’t like it

Exactly… Leave it to the imagination..? -Sam

What are you looking forward to most in filming season 2? (and thank you for the pub recommendation in Glasgow last November – had a great time on Ashton Lane! x)

Love pubs on Ashton Lane! – Sam

How do you feel about the gross comments you constantly end up with? A.k.a. the really graphic inappropriate ones from older women who should know better :s

Diana knows EXACTLY what shes saying. I love it. – Sam

Oh no, not Diana! I mean from fans! Sorry, should have specified! As a young rider she’s a huge inspiration for me

Hello from Indiana! Where do YOU call home Mr. Heughan?

Scotland beginning to feel alot like home – Sam

What’s your middle name? You told that’s bad, but you haven’t told what is it! May I ask?

Named after a famous 1980’s puppet rat….??? – Sam

Sam, are you planning any more charitable events involving endurance activities!! I am doing my first Ironman and would love to raise money to donate in your charities name!

Watch this space, several in the pipeline – Sam

Can I scratch your scruff?

Long as I can stroke your scruff – Sam

Coffee or tea?

Hey Sam – have you ‘bagged’ any 14ers during your time off?

I’m hoping to travel to Denver and bag at least one… – Sam

was a trauma to cut across that beautiful beard?
P.S I love Sam bearded

Are you single?

Maybe…

Sam, I am old enough to be your mum but my heart speeds up when I watch you. Great job filling Jamie’s big shoes!

    Loved this session. Sam’s always fun but evasive on certain issues. Don’t blame him for that: he has probably good sense to avoid answering certain questions. Mostly he always seems honest and open and very approachable. He seems to really be enjoying his new found fame and I’m pleased for him. Could not happen to a nicer man. Hope we see & hear much more form him and whoever wins his heart eventually is going to have to be very special to keep him. He deserves someone amazing.
    Really looking forward to the next half of Outlander especially since seeing some of the new clips this week.
    I’m a huge fan of the books & now the series and greatly admire Diana’s work and love the way she represents the best in mature women. She shows that you do not have to be young to enjoy all life’s pleasures .I wish I had the gift of understanding men the way she so obviously does. No wonder Sam likes her so much. I believe Cat also has that gift. Thanks for the Sam time.

  • What picture with the kilt???? I read at the Tartan heritage website that the correct answer to the kilt question is “Nothing is worn under the kilt, it’s all in perfect working order.”
    I wish I had known about this blogger Q & A as I do a weekly recap and occasional trivia. Great job
