Check out the new interview of Sam and Caitriona with Entertainment Weekly as they are on set of their cover issue. Screencaps and new Outlander stills added to the gallery. Enjoy!
The first thing everyone noticed was the pairs upon pairs of actual Scottish legs.
When the cast and crew of Outlander descended upon Cape Town Studios in South Africa earlier this year, the arid temperatures forced everyone out of their woolen hats and puffy coats and into the least amount of clothing possible. But no one was prepared to see such an overwhelming display of pasty dermis while filming the third season of the Starz drama.
“I was like, oh my God, you have legs,” recalls executive producer Maril Davis. “It was like a mini-vacation in some ways because the weather is so much different than what we’re used to in Scotland. I mean, I’ve never seen most of the Scottish crew’s legs before. I have never seen so much leg skin in my life.”
And yet that was probably the least astonishing thing about filming on the 495-acre studio lot about an hour outside of Cape Town. Previously used for movies including The Dark Tower and Mad Max: Fury Road, producers chose the location because of its impressive collection of two- and three-masted vessels that were used as pirate ships on Black Sails, Starz’ pirate drama that ended its run in April. When Outlander’s third season debuts Sept. 10, two of those ships have been transformed into the Artemis and the HMS Porpoise — a brigantine and a man-of-war that will play a major role in Jamie and Claire’s excellent adventure to the Caribbean. And EW was on set right when the ships were preparing to set sail (so to speak).
For the next issue of Entertainment Weekly, we went behind-the-scenes of the South Africa shoot to find out what the drama has in store for its 5-million plus fans this fall. And since no one image can best capture the unique experience, we’re publishing three covers! The first two below, featuring Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) and Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) individually, will be available to subscribers and on newsstands on Friday. The third, showing the happy couple together, will be available exclusively at Barnes & Noble beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 29. Or you can buy the whole set here.

Guilty pleasure? A lazy weekend in bed watching box sets, especially anything American and sci-fi. I recently got through Netflix’s Stranger Things.
Where is home? Wherever my suitcase is, because I’m away so much for filming. I had a home in London for 12 years and now have a place in Scotland, which is where I’m from.
Career plan B? I’m really into sport, so perhaps a professional sportsman.
Who would play you in a movie of your life? Sean Connery.
Biggest bugbear? People littering the natural environment. Hiking is a great passion of mine and I find myself picking up empty bottles.
As a child you wanted to be… A magician.
Earliest memory? Playing in the grounds of a ruined castle in Balmaclellan, Southwest Scotland. We lived in converted stables on the estate.
Secret to a happy relationship? As I travel so much, I would say that being on the same continent certainly helps.
Your best quality? Stubbornness – you’ve got to be pretty strong-willed in my business.
And your worst? The same. Being stubborn doesn’t always help.
Last meal on earth? I wholly promote the omelette as a meal whatever the occasion, especially your last one.
Dream dinner–party guests? Elon Musk, who is fascinating and inspiring, the tennis player Martina Hingis, who I was obsessed with as a youngster, Michelle Obama and the astronaut Tim Peake.
Advice to teenage self? Just relax.
Cat or dog? I’m wholeheartedly a cat person, although it’s not practical for me to have one at the moment. When I was growing up, we had cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens – a whole menagerie.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? I spend so much time in front of mirrors as part of my job that I try to avoid them outside work.
Starstruck moment? Meeting Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton on a flight to Los Angeles last year. I was very embarrassing and asked him for a selfie.
Big break? Appearing in a play called Outlying Islands at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2002, my first job after leaving drama school.
Career highlight? The 2014 New York premiere of the first season of Outlander, my biggest role so far.
Most embarrassing moment? Being on stage at the premiere in a kilt and giving the front row a sneak peak.
Favourite tipple? Single malt whiskies from Islay.
Hangover cure? Hair of the dog.
Top of your bucket list? To go to base camp on Mount Everest and go hiking in Nepal or Tibet.
Secret skill? I can juggle pretty well – with balls, clubs and, if pushed, knives.
Philosophy? Trust your gut instinct.
Last film that made you cry? The Light Between Oceans, which is extremely moving and well-acted.
Most extravagant purchase? Taking a flight to Thailand for Christmas on impulse two years ago.
Biggest regret? Not playing rugby for Scotland.
Biggest fear? Getting the sack.
Celebrity crush? Sigourney Weaver in Ghostbusters.
Happiness is… Climbing a Munro [a Scottish mountain over 3,000ft].

Outlander: Season 3 – Promotional Images #2

We have more pictures for you, Outlander nation!
In preparation for Outlander‘s much-anticipated presence at San Diego Comic-Con next Friday, we have obtained some exclusive first looks from season 3.
And look who it is! Lord John Grey and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan)!
We also have a photo of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her 20th-century hubby, Frank (Tobias Menzies), gazing lovingly at a young Brianna.
So let’s recap: Expect a tale of two centuries when Outlander makes its much-anticipated, gawd-it’s-been-forever return to Starz in September. While Jamie (develops an unexpected rapport with his British captor John Grey (David Berry) after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, Claire has returned to 20th-century Boston to resume her marriage to Frank and raise young Brianna, her feisty daughter fathered by Jamie.
But now for the bad news: It’s going to be several episodes before we see the time-traveling nurse reunite with her hunky Highlander. When the lovebirds finally do hook up in a Scottish print shop — a scene fans of Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novels have been breathlessly awaiting — come prepared with a cold compress.
“For Sam and I and all the writers, we felt that it was so important to make sure we had the tone right,” Balfe tells EW. “Claire’s had time to prepare herself for what this might be and to play various scenarios through her mind. But for Jamie, this person just landed in his life again and there was no warning. So you’ve got two people trying to figure out how to go about this.”
Outlander returns Sept. 10 on Starz.
