Graham McTavish (Dougal) went to Sci-Fi Weekender recently and gave an interview with Starburst.  He discussed Outlander and The Hobbit.  Below is what he had to say about Outlander, and I added the fun questions at the end.  Read the whole interview at Starburst.

“What can you tell us about Outlander?

I’m loving doing Outlander. We’ve got a great cast and we’re up in the Scottish Highlands. Diana Gabaldon has written a series of these books and this is the first one, Cross Stitch, that we’re making into a sixteen episode series for Starz in America. It’s big budget, they’re spending a lot of money on it. They’re going for a very gritty and realistic portrayal of the Highlands and I play Dougal MacKenzie, the War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie.  As that implies, he’s quite the serious character. There’s lots of political intrigue, there’s romance, there’s adventure and action and there’s time-travel.”

“If you were stranded on a desert island with one book for company, what would it be?
The Wind in the Willows”

“Simpsons or Futurama?

“Dwarves or Hobbits?
Dwarves! Of course!”

“Star Trek or Star Wars?
Star Wars”

“Truth or Beauty?
Truth. ”
