Sam Huegan is fully covered with blood. Obviously, the blood is not real, it is fake. In addition, a gritty patina of dirt is also placed through the Outlander’s makeup with a procedure called “sprackling.” Jamie Fraser, Heughan’s character on the show, has had a serious day—however Heughan himself is feeling light.
“Tomorrow is maggot day!” Heughan broadcasts, as he lays on the sofa in his trailer between takes. The amazing frightening little creatures are the genuine article, set to show up in an arrangement I’ve viewed a few individuals from the Outlander cast film on the day Starz welcomed me to visit. “They have their own trailer,” the Scottish entertainer jokes. “They’re requesting.”
Jamie Fraser has, as Heughan puts it, persevered through “a ton of wounds and a ton of injury” throughout the show’s four seasons. “It’s such a physical show,” he says, refering to season 1 as the most tiring.
Season 5 discovers Jamie planning for the fight to come once more, yet he’s never again the sketchy youthful Highlander we initially met. He’s a granddad.
“I never thought I’d play a granddad at this time. I’m grasping it,” Heughan says of his character, who is 10 years in addition to more established than Heughan’s own 39 years following a season 2 time hop. Jamie’s grasping it, as well.
“Jamie constantly needed to be a dad figure. He’s for the longest time been itching to have a more distant family, and up until season 4, he’s not so much had that chance,” Heughan says. When Jamie, Claire, Fergus (Cesar Domboy), and Marsali (Lauren Lyle) truly appeared on America’s shores toward the finish of season 3, “they’re renewed, in a manner of speaking.”
