• Outlander Season 3: 01/17/17 – Filming In Edinburgh
Outlander, the Starz adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novels, is about to come alive in the pages of its own adaptation of sorts. In The Making of Outlander, a deep dive out Oct. 18 into the series’ first two seasons, author Tara Bennett — with an assist from Gabaldon herself, who writes the introduction — takes readers through the writing and filming of every episode, offers never-before-seen images, and delivers exclusive interviews with the cast and crew.
Below, EW has five exclusive behind-the-scenes shots from the book, as well as insight from executive producer Maril Davis, who says the book is “a love letter to the cast and crew” that gives fans an intimate look into the production of the epic, sweeping love story between Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). “Most fans do want to know how the sausage is made, they’re interested in the filmmaking process,” Davis says. “People don’t really understand the steps we take.” She walks EW through some of the steps for the five shots below.
Season 2 brought the Frasers to France. For a visit to Versailles, Claire donned a memorable, cleavage-baring red dress — and shared an intimate moment with Jamie before heading out. The shot shows just a bit of the crew surrounding them in the bottom left corner, which Davis says is a common sight for the Balfe and Heughan, especially in their closest scenes. “It’s like Jamie, Claire, and 20 other people,” she laughs. “From the start, [Caitriona and Sam] had this amazing relationship. They get along so well. If they didn’t, we’d be in trouble.”
Aside from getting the costumes right for the world-traveling second season, Davis remembers the production focusing on two key sets: Master Raymond’s (Dominique Pinon) apothecary and the king’s Star Chamber, which was only featured in one, grisly sequence. “It’s one thing to see the pictures, but when you walk on set it’s like being there,” she says. “It helps the actors. They walk on and part of their job is done. They have to act, but they’re not distracted.”
Outlander Book Three starts production in Scotland
On The Set of Outlander
Starz, in association with Sony Pictures Television, announced today that production has begun on book three of the Emmy-nominated hit original series Outlander. Outlander Book Three will include 13 episodes based upon the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling “Outlander” series, entitled “Voyager.”
Outlander Book Three picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden re-appearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: when they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?
Diana Gabaldon’s eight-book series has sold more than 26 million copies worldwide and all eight books in the series have graced the New York Times best-sellers list.
Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney, and Andy Harries serve as executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Scottish with a Love of the Outdoors and a Link to Founder John Barbour’s Farm makes Sam Heughan the Perfect Choice as Barbour Takes on First Global Brand Ambassador
Scottish born Sam Heughan has been chosen as Barbour’s first Global Brand Ambassador in a two year deal from July 2016. Sam grew up in Galloway, a short distance from the farm where founder John Barbour lived in the late 1800s before moving across the border to set up the first Barbour store in South Shields in the North East of England in 1894.
Sam 36, the lead actor in the hit international TV series Outlander which is filmed on location in Scotland, will appear in a selected number of photoshoots and PR appearances for Barbour and will work with some of the brand’s key wholesale partners in the UK and US, Barbour’s two largest markets. He will also develop his own signature capsule collection incorporating Barbour’s renowned exclusive tartans which are based on the Ayrshire District Tartan from where the Barbour family originated in the 13th century.
Paul Wilkinson, Global Marketing Director, Barbour said “When I first met Sam, I was immediately struck by the similarities with Barbour. The British countryside has been at the heart of the Barbour brand since 1894. Sam’s Scottish roots and his genuine love of the outdoors means he brings an authentic and very real connection to the partnership. Sam has a great respect for our history and heritage of over 120 years and he has worn Barbour since he was young. He will become the face of our exclusive menswear tartan collection providing us with an opportunity to create some original and innovative marketing initiatives that will make this a unique and very special partnership.”
Sam Heughan said “I am delighted to be working with Barbour and feel very privileged that they have chosen me to be their first Global Brand Ambassador. Being Scottish, I grew up with the brand and have always been a big fan – being born in the same rural area as John Barbour, in the south of Scotland. The company has a long history and heritage and their archive goes right back to 1910, through many periods of momentous history that fascinate me and it’s so intriguing to see how Barbour has adapted yet retained its strong identity. It has also been fascinating to see that while the design and styles of the clothing has changed over the years, the founding philosophy of providing quality products that are fit for purpose, durable and functional is still as relevant today as it was in the beginning. I have a great passion for the company and their employees that feels more like I’ve been welcomed into their extended family. I very much look forward to designing my own capsule collection based on this ethos and to representing the brand in the UK, the US and internationally.”
Sam studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow and in 2003 was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Performer. In 2011 he originated the role of Batman in the DC/Warner Bros and Waterlane production of “Batman Live”, an international tour which opened in Los Angeles and went on tour to Las Vegas, South America and throughout the UK and Europe. On stage, he has performed in the London West End and at a variety of theatres in various classical and new writing pieces including “Romeo and Juliet”, “The Talented Mr Ripley” and “Plague over England”.
In 2013, he was cast in the lead role as Jamie Fraser in the Starz hit period drama series Outlander which is set in Scotland. Since starring in Outlander, Sam has received numerous fan generated accolades including the BBC America Anglophenia Man of the Year in 2014 and Entertainment Weekly’s EW-wy Best Actor – Drama in 2015. He was the Grand Marshall at this year’s Tartan Day Parade in April in New York which was sponsored by Barbour.
