Friday night at SDCC 2017 was the panel of Starz’s hit series, Outlander, awash with screaming fans, with gushing fangirl-turned-moderator, Jenna Dewan-Tatum (with an impressive resume herself).
“But really, I am the biggest, hugest, Outlander fan! I love this show.” She then introduces EPs Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis, author Diana Gabaldon, and stars Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Tobias Menzies, Sam Heughan, and Caitriona Balfe.
Watch the entire panel below.
Dewan Tatum starts off by asking the question everyone wants an answer to: “Can you please give us an overview of what we can expect in Season 3?” He talks about the 20 years Claire and Jamie spent apart, and how they used the Black Sails sets. Maril Davis described moving the set location, and Gabaldon spoke about visiting the sets.
Then Dewan Tatum asks my boyfriend, Tobias Menzies, how it felt to return to Frank Randall. You can listen to it. I have to listen to it again because all I heard was, “Claire, Frank, I love you Athena,” as I stared at him. He might be the best actor on television right now, able to evoke the largest of emotion on the smallest of expressions. He does confirm that the season starts in Culloden with Jamie and Blackjack.
Rankin and Skelton both read the books to prepare, plus they give a tiny story about the screen tests.
Heughan and Balfe were asked about aging in the series.
Balfe: “How does time weigh on a person?”
They talk about the print shop scene (squee!!!), they play a game, there’s dancing…
There’s just so much inside that is delicious. Jenna and Sam flirt, but she assures him that Channing would be okay with them dancing. Enjoy!
I never thought I would be jealous of Jenna Dewan Tatum, not because of her beauty, career, and super hot and talented husband, but because she got to spend time with one of my favorite casts.
Oh! The lucky fans at the panel got the surprise of their lives when Moore showed Episode 3.1 “The Battle Joined.”
