I’ve added two new high quality stills of Sam from The Spy Who Dumped Me. Check them out in our gallery! I can’t wait for this movie.
We put YOUR questions to the star of the hit show in a quick fire Q&A – here’s what he said…
Outlander star Sam Heughan is well used to being questioned by journalists – but how does he do when his fans put him on the spot?
That’s what RadioTimes.com set out to discover when we sat down with him for an exclusive chat in London.
We asked Outlander fans to submit some quick-fire questions for Sam and they responded in their droves, with quirky, inventive and challenging queries.
We put as many of them as we could to the main man himself and we think he did a pretty good job answering them on the spot.
But don’t just take our word for it – watch him take on the challenge for yourself…
Outlander’s Sam Heughan is set to join Vin Diesel in Bloodshot for Sony Pictures. The pic, which marks Diesel’s first superhero film, starts production in July with Dave Wilson directing and Neal H. Moritz producing. The film is casting up quickly.
Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe – a comic book universe composed of a diverse array of thousands of characters embodying a wide variety of genres, tones and demographic groups and over 81 million comics sold. Valiant’s superheroes are ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods; they are complex characters that reflect contemporary society, politics, and diversity of the modern world.
Wilson is a director at Blur Studios, the VFX factory owned by Tim Miller, who directed the first Deadpool and is reviving the Terminator franchise. Pic re-teams Fast and the Furious‘ Moritz and Diesel. Sony is hoping to launch a franchise here through the Bloodshot comic universe.
The film fits nicely into Heughan’s hiatus before he returns for Outlander, which recently got a two-season pickup from Starz. Heughan next stars with Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, which Lionsgate releases August 3.
He’s represented by UTA and United Agents in the UK.

The official trailer for Lionsgate’s action comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me has been released, as well as new posters featuring leading ladies Mila Kunis (Bad Moms) and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) as unexpected international spies. Check out The Spy Who Dumped Me official trailer and posters in the player and gallery below!
Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon), two thirty-year-old best friends in Los Angeles, are thrust unexpectedly into an international conspiracy when Audrey’s ex-boyfriend shows up at their apartment with a team of deadly assassins on his trail. Surprising even themselves, the duo jump into action, on the run throughout Europe from assassins and a suspicious-but-charming British agent, as they hatch a plan to save the world.
The title, The Spy Who Dumped Me, is an obvious take on The Spy Who Loved Me, the tenth film in the James Bond series, starring Roger Moore, Curd Jürgens, and Barbara Bach. That film’s title, of course, comes from Ian Fleming’s novel The Spy Who Loved Me, the tenth book in the series, though the plot was different. Peter Kang and Geoff Shaevitz and Imagine’s Erica Huggins and Julie Oh are on board to oversee the film.
Also starring in the comedy are Outlander’s Sam Heughan, Justin Theroux (The Leftovers), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show), and Ivanna Sakhno (Pacific Rim: Uprising).
The Spy Who Dumped Me is slated for release on August 3, 2018.
Better get working on building Fraser’s Ridge, Jamie: Outlander isn’t going anywhere, seeing as how Starz has given the historical drama another two-season renewal.
The premium cabler will bring back Outlander for Seasons 5 and 6, TVLine has learned, echoing the supersized pickup the series got for Seasons 3 and 4.
The drama, based on a series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, will continue to follow the one-book-per-season formula it has used since its start. Seasons 5 and 6 will unfold over 12 episodes each and will be based on The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes, respectively.
Starz also announced that a 12-episode Season 4, which is currently shooting in Scotland, will premiere in November 2018.
Sam Heughan, 38, plays Jamie Fraser in the hit TV series Outlander, adapted from the Diana Gabaldon books. Living in Glasgow while shooting season four, he was born in Galloway where John Barbour, who founded the family-owned brand in 1894, originated.
As Barbour’s Global Brand Ambassador for the past two years, Heughan promotes and models for the tartan-lined brand as well as working on his own Signature collection.
What is your connection with Barbour?
Since July 2016, I have been Barbour’s Global Brand Ambassador, a role I am very proud and privileged to hold. I was born and raised near where John Barbour lived in the south of Scotland and have always had a strong love of the brand.
How do you go about working with them?
I have a Barbour Sam Heughan Signature collection which reflects my personal style, drawing on my love of the outdoors, Scotland and the heritage of the brand. As their Global Brand Ambassador, I take part in photoshoots, modelling for two of their worldwide campaigns, Shirt Department and Tartan, and have undertaken store appearances, primarily in the US.
Do you have a background in design or a love of fashion?
This is a new adventure for me and I’ve loved learning and collaborating with the design team at Barbour, adding my personal details or preference. It’s a fun collaboration and can be very rewarding when you see the end product.
How would you describe your style?
Something versatile is what I look for, that’ll look good in the mountains of Scotland or on the streets of New York. Practical, fashionable and good quality.
Who are your influences style-wise? Style icons?
I like to draw on past designs in the Barbour archive; it’s fascinating to see how contemporary a heritage piece can be.
Did you wear Barbour designs before you worked with them?
Being Scottish, I grew up with the brand and have always been a big fan. Their clothing is perfect for the outdoors. I have always had a great passion for the company – the fact that it is still family owned and continues to make its traditional wax jackets in South Shields in the Northeast of England makes it pretty special.
What appeals to you about them?
The company has a long history and heritage (since 1894) and their archive goes right back to 1910. They have endured many periods of momentous history 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 have 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.
Did you try to put an element of Outlander/Jamie Fraser into the designs at all?
My Barbour Sam Heughan collection reflects my Scottish roots and my love for the great British outdoors and we’ve included tartan and herringbone, giving iconic and familiar textures. It’s subtle but uniquely Scottish.
Talk us through your recent Oscars look, the suit, Montblanc watch (and did you get to keep it?)
Ha, ha I was rather fortunate to be gifted the watch, it’s beautiful! The suit and shoes were Saint Laurent, very sharp.
What would you favour for a more casual look?
Need you ask?!
What’s the one item of clothing you would never throw away?
I have trouble throwing away boots. The more battered they look, the more character they get.
What can you tell us about the costumes on Outlander?
They’re an important and useful tool to tell the story of the character and period, it can really change how one walks, stands etc and give clues to the character’s past and status. It’s fun to build the story in our fittings.
What challenges have you faced in the link with Barbour?
Apart from the glorious Scottish weather, my biggest challenge has been time. Juggling my acting commitments, my charity work and working with Barbour has sometimes been challenging but we always manage to make it work.
What was the biggest surprise along the way?
The biggest surprise was when I met Dame Margaret Barbour and her daughter Helen and in conversation we discovered that I was born in the same rural area in the south of Scotland as founder John Barbour. It felt like an omen.
What is the fun part of it?
The fun part has been working with the Barbour team – they’re all so passionate and knowledgeable about the brand and they have made me feel very much part of the company.
What have you learned?
I’ve learned a lot more about the history and heritage of Barbour and how the design team use inspiration from the archives to create garments relevant for today. It was fascinating to go through the archives and to incorporate some of this history and heritage into my collection.
What is your favourite item from the Barbour collection?
I love all of the collection. If I had to pick out one piece from the current Spring Summer 18 collection, it would be the Barbour Lochy waterproof, breathable jacket. I love its casual style which goes so well with jeans. It’s very lightweight – perfect for the summer months in Scotland where the weather, as we know, can be unpredictable!
What has been your biggest fashion faux-pas?
Oh, I was born in the 1980s… too many to mention.
Are you a true Scotsman or is it too cold for going commando when filming in a kilt in Scotland?
Sigh. Do you wear underwear?
Why is tartan so popular?
It tells a story of heritage. It’s interesting to see the original colours before it was made fashionable by Queen Victoria. It was less uniform and more reflective of local materials and resources.
Do you wear tartan when you’re not at work?
Weddings, parties, sports events and of course any time I wear my Barbour.
Does the tartan and the kilts make the show more popular?
Absolutely. I think the show celebrates Scottish culture and tradition. I’m a proud Scotsman and honoured to bring the best of this to the world.

Check out the new teaser trailer for Sam’s new film, The Spy Who Dumped Me. This movie will be in theaters August 3, 2018! Starring Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux, Gillian Anderson, Hasan Minhaj, Ivanna Sakhno, and Sam Heughan.
As the leading man of an epic love story, in this case Jamie Fraser in Starz’s “Outlander,” Sam Heughan has more than shown viewers his romantic side. But to live a life apart from his destined love required the actor to channel grief rather than romance.
The first half of the third season of the time-traveling drama explored the two decades that Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) lived apart after he sent her to the future (the 1940s) to raise their baby. For Jamie, who was expecting to die in the battle of Culloden but didn’t, the ensuing years of coping with love lost was a battle of emotions.
Heughan, on a short break from production overseas on the fourth season, stopped by The Times studio recently to discuss the approach he took in bringing weight to the pain.
“It’s the different stages of grief, really,” Heughan said. “He goes through anger, sadness … eventually acceptance. Each episode was so strong, and he’s such a different character … but he’s still living in the memory of Claire, living in the shadows.”
Though Claire is raising their daughter in the future with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies), viewers still got a glimpse of Jamie as a father — albeit a restricted glimpse. He comes to father an illegitimate son, Willie, who he helps to raise temporarily. And he also becomes the stepfather to two daughters.
“He’s always wanted to be a father figure,” Heughan said. “It’s something he yearns for.”
