According to one of his fans, he smellt like mint and champagne. “Wow, they unveiled my secret!” – laughs the Scottish actor, blue eyes and blond hair. Sam Heughan, 36 and 190cm tall, is today’s sex symbol: thanks to Outlander, in which he plays Jamie Fraser, the brave and kind warrior who falls in love with Claire, who went back in time, from 1945 to the Scotland of 1743.
Is it true that your parents named you after a “Lord of the Rings” character?
SH: Yes! The love the series by J.R. Tolkien and named me after Samwise Gamgee and my brother after the elf Cirdan. It could have been worse. They could have named us Gandalf!
Sam Heughan talks about what makes Claire and Jamie so compelling, and the future after their Season 3 and 4 renewal.
Here’s a new interview of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe for The Los Angeles Times.
[…] Heughan and Balfe said they were thrilled when they heard Diana Gabaldon would be writing a script for Season 2.
“When we all did the read-through, we were delighted,” said Heughan during his visit with Balfe to The Envelope’s video studio. “It read really well, there’s a great pace to it. It’s coming up soon.”
Gabaldon was simultaneously writing a new installment to the book series while writing the episode. A process that the actors found fascinating.
“To be playing Jamie while she’s writing Jamie is kind of a weird thing,” Heughan said.
“It was funny,” Balfe interjected. “You could see her. It’s almost like she goes off into this imaginary world where she’s sort of talking to herself and seeing it play out .. then you see her go back to the writing. It’s amazing to watch somebody go through that process.”
Heughan also noted that he recently heard from Gabaldon.
“She’s just read the first episode of next season,” Heughan said. “And she’s really happy and excited.”
Way to tease, Sam!
