Scottish actor Sam Heughan talked about his new role as Jamie on Starz' new drama, Outlander in an interview.
For those who have read the first book, it's no secret that Jamie faced heartbreaking moments on the final pages. Below, the actor tells us if the same storylines will be incorporated on the upcoming episodes of the TV series.
Without giving away too much, basically, if it’s in the book, it’s probably going to be in the show. We don’t shy away from anything. The show is very dark, and I think that’s the absolute joy of it, and that’s why I love Ron Moore’s work. Each episode is just so different. You think it’s going one way, and it just turns it all on its head…. There’s some pretty gruesome stuff that happens, and I think that’s what’s going to be really interesting for people to see and for the Jamie character: how he deals with that, how he addresses that, and what that does to his relationship with Claire. Yeah, exciting stuff.
Outlander's 16-episode first season airs every Saturday at 9PM on Starz.
