Statement he gave on DIANA GABALDON'S Facebook page

RE Opportunity to play JAMIE FRASER

“Firstly, a big thanks to Diana for giving us these wonderful books! Utterly thrilled to have been given this opportunity to play “Jamie”. He’s a fantastic character that has so many apparent and hidden sides to him, a true gift of a part. I can’t wait to explore Diana’s world and share it with you guys! His love of Claire is inspiring and as deep as the land he comes from. My personal romance with Scotland is something I can’t wait for you to all experience too..! (Including the haggis)

Thanks to all the great support from you fans already, I know we won’t let you down. With Diana’s books to guide us and Ron Moore at the helm, Outlander is going to be one hell of an adventure! Slainte mhath!x”

Have his expectations been met? What is different now from when he made this statement? Does he feel the same way or more strongly now?

What do you think of SAM HEUGHAN'S JAMIE FRASER?? 2 years later.


  1. I wonder how much weight he put on to play Jamie? Every ounce well sculpted and we appreciate that effort Mr. Heughan!

  2. Sam has excelled in the role of Jamie Fraser! Can't wait for season 2, and (hopefully) seasons 3-?
