CTV News (Canada) had an interview with Diana Gabaldon about her book series being adapted for television. She talks about the process so far, about how there’s something for everyone in her work, and the casting (Sam Heughan). She also noted that they are using her as a consultant on the series, “which means they are kind enough to ask my opinion”.

This was my first time seeing her interviewed and she definitely does not disappoint!
