Sam, Cait and Tobias in Vanity Fair


Our favorite trifecta, Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies are all featured in the new Vanity Fair article. They all discuss life changes since casting, the lack thereof in some cases, and modesty pouches amongst other things…


“My life has changed in so many ways because of the show,” said Heughan, who plays swoon-worthy Highlander Jamie Fraser. One of the biggest changes has been seeing his face plastered on billboards. “It’s very odd. I had just come from Los Angeles, and there’s a lot of billboards around the city and on buses and it’s really strange to be driving past and see myself up there,” he said. “It’s kind of overwhelming, really.”

“I would like to think that I am fearless like Claire,” Balfe said about the headstrong British nurse. “I will pretty much do anything that this role calls for, but I would also like to think that I am more cautious when needed, because Claire does things before she thinks. But I love that. I love that she is passionate and takes big risks no matter what happens.”

“I live in London and I don’t get too much hassle or dirty looks from fans. I can still go and buy my milk from the shelf,” said Menzies. “I’m happy to tell you people just about manage to work out that I’m not him and he is not me. But it’s great to hear that I am evil enough to confuse some people.”
