Sam was on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can watch it above. The interview was short but cute. I wish it were longer and that the poetry segment were shorter, but eh. I’ll be adding more videos throughout the week as he and Caitriona do press for Outlander.
I will add screencaps of the interview soon in better quality.
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.
It’s not quite the same as seeing the entire premiere episode at Comic-Con, but Starz has released new video from Outlander that shows key moments from the first few episodes of season 3.
In the video dubbed “Parallel Lives,” Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) provide narration as scenes of from the Culloden battle and Claire’s new life in 20th century Boston flash on the screen. Frank (Tobias Menzies) makes an appearance, as well as Brianna (Sophie Skelton), Lord John Grey (David Berry), Joe Abernathy (Wil Johnson), Jamie’s sister Jenny (Laura Donnelly), and Fergus (Romann Berrux).
On July 21, Starz premiered the entire first episode of season 3 after the show’s panel discussion at Comic-Con. You can read about it here.
Outlander premieres on Sept. 10 on Starz.
I will be adding all the videos and photos of Sam from San Diego Comic Con in this post throughout the weekend so it’s all in one location. If you are interested in seeing Caitriona’s coverage from SDCC, visit Caitirona-Balfe.com. I do want to say thanks to Alikat, Claudia, Mary, and FFA for a few of the photos.
