Thanks to my friend AliKat I have added scans to the gallery from the Entertainment Weekly Comic Con issue. I’ve also added a handful of missing images to the gallery. Enjoy.
Sam did a “quick fire” interview with the Daily Mail. Check it out below.
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].
Sam is a global brand ambassador for Barbour. Catch up with Outlander on Thursdays at 9pm on More4
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.

Outlander: Season 3 – Promotional Images #2
Click Below For Videos!
I’ve added a bunch of missing Outlander images to the gallery that I have had saved on my computer and been waiting to find time to add them to the site. I finally have! I’ve also added recent magazine scans of Sam.
Tomorrow Sam will be at SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) with Caitriona Balfe and other Outlander cast members. I will add photos from the event tomorrow. Enjoy!
“A. Malcolm, Printer and Bookseller.” Has there ever been a sweeter sight, Sassenachs, than the sign hanging outside an Edinburgh print shop in Outlander‘s just-released Season 3 trailer? Och, we think no. Let’s all gaze upon it for a wee second, shall we?
If you’re someone who hasn’t read Diana Gabaldon’s novels and you don’t know why this is a big deal, no worries! Skip down to where we tell you it’s safe, because there are big spoilers ahead.
Spoiler alert! If you have read the books, you know that the Carfax Close shop is the site of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) reunion after a 20-year (by way of 200 years) absence. And while we don’t see Mr. Malcolm himself in the footage, everything else in the lead-up is there. Claire’s expectant/worried face! The sign! The bell! You can all but smell the ink and the alepot inside. Such sweet torment, no? (And if you missed the scene in the trailer, make sure to go back and watch the video all the way to the end. They’re sneaky, those Starz folks.)
OK IT’S SAFE NOW, non-book-readers. The trailer also features several other scenes based on events in Gabaldon’s Voyager. As previously announced, the drama will examine how Jamie and Claire’s lives changed drastically during the years between her return to her own time and the events of the Season 2 finale. So that means we see lots of Frank in times both happy (cuddling a baby Brianna) and strained (that shot of Claire fuming while he slinks upstairs looked rough), as well as footage of Jamie being arrested upon his return to Lallbroch and his subsequent adventures with Lord John Grey, played by new cast member David Berry.
We also witness Brianna and Roger helping Claire in her search (as well as smooching a bit), as well as Jamie making significant eye contact with a woman who is not his mo nighean donn. Two decades is a long time, people!
Outlander returns Sunday, Sept. 10, at 8/7c.
I’ve added a couple new images of Sam for Barbour. I can’t wait to see more of his summer line. Enjoy.
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.
