Sam Heughan speaks about the highly anticipated Season 2 and what lies ahead for his character.
“Jaime’s thrown himself into it whole-heartedly. He’s in it but he’s not relishing it at all. We see [Jamie and Clare] slowly get better at [playing the game] and learn they can undercut people and be quite political themselves. Publicly he’s a good businessman and very charming, but in those late nights with Claire we see the mask come off.”
Sam revealed fans will have to deal with the “hangover” of the dramatic finale as the show picks up in France.
“We’ve just completed the first three episodes of the second season and it’s very different. We’ve gone to France. The story picks up as Jamie and Claire go to France to stop the build-up to Culloden and stop the rebellion. There’s definitely a hangover after the events of season one and everything what happened in the finale. It feels like a whole new world. We’re introduced to love and characters from Diana’s books.”
Season 2 is coming back “spring 2016” on Starz.
