There’s more to people than what’s on surface.
Like a ‘ya’ after a ‘you, the idea for Morello’s accent which she refuses to pinpoint to one Northeast dialect came from one phonetically spelled word in the sides she was given,’ she says.
She likewise ok a cue from a note in script that Morello was wearing makeup, that gave her a tiny bit larger than health. Clearly, everyone forms mental images while understanding.
I do it when they study people’s books, I actually can’t imagine why anyone having explore OUTLANDER would form an image of Jamie as a seven foot tall Bozo the clown on steroids. I am so feeling good about the books which they started explore after Starz make a habit to say, I begged my husband to order Starz after seeing the first episode on line.
I have turned out to be completely taken in to the story.
I am on Drums of Autumn and can’t put it down.
I am so bummed at waiting thought until April for 2nd season. Sam Heughan is Jamie to me from the start. I didn’t start off explore the book until after catching the pretty first episode on Starz. I can’t imagine anyone else playing Jamie, or Claire for that matter. Choices All the powers that be made so far always were perfect to me. Thank you for being reason voice. Most of us know that there are so loads of us that are probably so beyond thrilled with Sam as fabulous production, all, Jamie and all cast it entails, that we needn’t worry about the ones who aren’t with us. They may merely study books. Did you hear about something like that before? We’ll watch the TV series and everyone should be good! I will say that they may be disappointed for a while hair.
Basically the first look photo seems to show him with rather short hair.
It’s not like you’d have to consider improving actors or anything extreme, I mean, it’s so dead simple to create any length movie hair with a perfect hair and makeup person.
It’s that, from a swooning for any longer hair was always whole part package. For instance, everyone connected with this project had been so good to us fans and they hope we pass that forward to newcomers to the Outlander world on the internet. Virtually, people usually can be uncivil -but on occasion people may merely have a tally unusual opinion, incorrect, be unoboservant and well.
We will be pretty nice to them should be so amazing. Thank you Diana for giving us all this wonderful story to feel fortunate about. For instance, thank you to Ron Moore and Starz for actually taking time to look for the perfect actors to bring it to essence. Then once again, I fully trust all of you!! a decent actor example turned out to be character has always been Derek Jacobi’s role as Brother Cadfael in identical BBC series name.
Books author described Brother Cadfael as swarthy with murky hair… which Derek Jacobi surely ain’t.
The moment that Sir Jacobi steps in camera front, he IS Brother Cadfael.
Did you know that the author, Edith Pargeter said she even changed her own mind about it once she’d seen Jacobi play part. However, good power acting usually was as strong as modern eyeglasses where seeing a character come to existence is concerned. Oftentimes I think he will make an awesome Jamie and I tally understand remark that the author sees better what the character should look like in real lifespan! What she says about redish hair is usually solve may be enough!
It’s for me! Thanks much for sharing very much of yourself with your fans -we of course appreciate it! Here’s why I am so glad that we get your own perspective. You see, what you wrote gave me the shivers. My belief was always that YOU created the characters so if Sam and others ARE characters to you, consequently that probably was perfect. Almost any time they explore how much you support Sam in this role my excitement grows! Nevertheless, it was a breath of fresh air to study our post this morning. I’ve been asking for awhile you could make all the negative comments without responding to them. Considering above said. I get virtually angry when they study you’d better have written the story this way or that way. It our own story, is, a magnificent or eventually one at that. That’s right! I can’t imagine not having your own books to study. Virtually, I am like lots of your own fans that say they can not get into another author’s work after explore yours. I am on my 8th ‘reread’ of the series.
Actually, I am listening on audio and understanding for awhile in book at similar time this go round.
I am amazed at detail that I missed on next re explores.
They don’t want to explore it, So if someone does not like something in the books. Really similar with TV series, they don’t want to watch it. As I’ve said to my daughter I am waiting for series, well said Diana, I actually had doubts myself for quite a while. I did Watch a video of an interview with Ron and yourself where there was a few minutes of Sam and Catraina saying hello. I have to admit we got a electricity little you’re speaking of. That said, I can not wait until it starts. Needless to say, book is preparing to come practically at identical time. Everything else was pretty clear, I could in no circumstances picture the characters’ faces. Although, sam and Caitriona are perfect. If you ask me, from actors to writers to producers. This series has some seriously good karma. THATS telling ‘em!
I think it will all be fine….we have good actors.
I in addition absolutely admire about Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher…they couldn’t bring myself to go see that or rent it.
Thank you once more. Diana. From my bottom heart. Notice that I am lucky to live in UK North east, not preparing to get the real thing, since Jamie has always been essentially you. We will merely have to trust that you understand Jamie feel better than any of your own readers. Anyways, he gonna be Jamie, if you say Sam is Jamie thence.
Thanks for taking this bull by the horns.
It’s been a bit disconcerting seeing people say things similar to he doesn’t have redish hair… or they thought so and so was older.
I was beginning to wonder if there was a need to pull out dictionary and provide the definition of ‘actor’. Notice, I love with cast so far! I’m sure it sounds familiar. So that’s might be an awesome show! I understand Kristen. When you saw someone has always been like the character YOU created.
I trust your own opinion whole heartedly. I actually usually can see Jamie in Sam and I’m so stoked for this show to come out, a bunch of people had their heart set on a famous actor playing Jamie and nothing usually can please them. Was so pleased when you indicated you liked Sam Heughan for Jamie role. Obviously if he fits in massive part the author vision after that, the fit must be good! Usually, starz will gain a brand new subscriber when the series begins next summer.. Diana, I reckon they have a girl crush on you. I hang off EVERY written word and we believe everything you say. This has usually been the case. I’ve not had any doubt in any choice you’ve made, even when you killed off a fav character. While back, in the end of the day the vitriol wards another they, author and in addition including death threats posted somewhere that they was worried about how you will deal when ‘fans’ decided you had personally assaulted them by your choices in our characters.
a lot of people rushed to reassure me that you would have no difficulties putting them in their places.
I see they have been right.
You rock! Love your own post! Have you heard of something like that before? It’s perfect as everything you write! Therefore this will be a fantastic series, no doubt about it. However, I’ve been following everything about it, Twitter, web pages, Facebook, everything, PR releases and they explore shows good professionalism and care, as the books deserve. Seriously. I’m extremely good for you -and for me as a fan top-notch success! Thank you! Thank you for remaining patient and gracious throughout this adventure. Then once again, while consulting and while traveling on Outlander series, doing best in order to have a health with your family -and -field all questions and craziness that swirl around you, how trying it must be to be putting the finishing uches on book number 9.
I now see that many of us know that there is far more than a uch of Yourself in Himself indeed.
You, madam have of course made Himself in the image, jamie Fraser should be all king men.
Bravo, Diana Gabaldon besides please make a bow! It’s a well more significant I am waiting for you book to come out, Know what guys, I am highly excited about the series and can’t wait to see it eventually on. Remember, I started explore them a lot of years ago when you first published first book and explore every one when they first came out. Consequently, since last books been released about any three years I have reread series lots of times. I was pretty disappointed when you postponed our own date modern book. With that said, since I am 67 years old enough they for ages enough to get to this end series. I trust our own judgement and I’m looking forward to a girls night Outlander viewing party when it airs!
I was so excited to see all the good pictures from set and to hear our approval of all they have shared with you. Thank you very much for all you write and share with all of us! I am so excited that they were usually making this series! Sam was not my Jamie but he’s growing on me and they trust you implicitly since you created him. This was probably the case. Thank you for your generous spirit and patience with our crazy fans! Yes, that’s right! We adore you! Fact, you are usually so right Diana, Sam Hueghan always was Jamie Fraser! I am so glad Thor isn’t playing Jamie. Basically, I like that the actor playing part usually was more unknown or unfamous, well or even was until this role came up….I am so fortunate that Diana and rest chose who they did. Yay Sam! It sounds good! I am grateful that you as author have been involved in film creation. So, I am convinced that JK Rowling’s involvement made Harry Potter movies classics to equal her writing, though the cinematic ‘botch up’ of first Twilight movie makes one wonder if the creative decision makers ever study the book or understood story. They completely botched pivotal scene that was supposed to be in meadow.
Very much care was taken with casting, it gives me a good feeling about what dramatization top, has been or for me all the book series, much might be down to the characterisation.
This reminds uproar me for casting Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind.
Clark Gable did not look for to do the pressure part because of expectation. Usually, I really hope this youthful man gets to feel lucky about his work, I actually see we ladies, will or lets just let everyone do their jobs. I am looking forward to completed project, all or surprises. I’m sure you heard about this. Thank you Diana for taking the time to write this to all those who is likely to be struggling with Sam as Jamie. Anyways, I believe I had much quite similar reaction as you. I was in love with Mr. Let me tell you something. Jamie Fraser since they as 17 years old….lets say we study first book shortly as it was published! I think Sam will make a wonderful Jamie and as you said Actors to Magic, your own mention of jack Reacher is spot on!. We must trust in you and the production team and Sams abilities as a Actor.
It could be amazing I’m sure!
This series has been will be amazing and when it airs all the naysayers will feel silly and jump on bandwagon!
Everything will come alive and Diana’s amazing dialogue for Jamie and Claire will make us fall in love. How anyone usually can be against the actors until they have seen them act was probably beyond me. I see it might be incredible! Sorry to hear you won’t have things set for the Portland event in April. Did you know that a few of my chorus buddies, who have explore through #7, were at event a few years ago in Beaverton. What a crowd! We’ve been anxiously awaiting for #8, near like an expectant parent in pregnancy 9th month but will wait until the timing is right. If it’s worth doing, as my mum-”nlaw’ once said, it’s worth doing right, make rather oftentimes you must.
I was study a lot of the replies regarding Sam Heughan. It’s whho’s in our Jamie that counts, we all have our own ideas of what someone looks like in our heads and we have to say, Sam was not Jamie in m’head. My love is for literary masterpiece that is pictured so vividly in my minds eye. Diana, our own writing has always been truely a joy. I am excited to see your own vision translated onto screen. My vote of confidence is with you and I trust our own heart and put you have had with production, casting, screenplay and likewise. Every of as a reader, again and even us has a characters version and events. Needless to say, hopefully, everyone will discover something modern to appreciate in its own right when the series begins.
Oh, To be honest I do love our own humor.
You in no circumstances struggle to make me laugh!!!
While seeing Jamie and STARZ series interacting, I am looking forward to Claire. It’s real that we all see someone exclusive in our minds eye when explore of these characters. Write For instance, that being said, To be honest I merely pictured MY special, own or even hero Jamie looking like Chris Hemsworth! Oftentimes hA! Let me tell you something. I do NOT see him as JAMMF. I like to look at and fantasize about for ages being that, I actually usually can. Well put, right after once again. I wish people will just move past their preconceptions of what they think what must be, and accept what’s.
Cast has usually been beautifully put gether and most importantly, I’m sure, done for their acting ability, that is the basic ingredient to making show a success this night.
So that’s this exciting time for Outlander universe, we get a series and newest book.
Please understand look, there’re plenty guys out there who appreciate rough work going into one and the other. Thank You. I have to admit that after study the Outlander series, each time we see a tall athletic man, To be honest I compare him to my version of Jamie. Alas,……, I have 2 I will have adviced. Essentially, I am sure this Sam person will do justice to the role. Of course I look forward to seeing Jamie and Claire on screen. Known keep your own dollar. Every of them. For instance, you’ve earned them! I understand you and our own dollar bets. However, they don’t deserve them. Those who nay say and who can’t imagine Sam as Jamie for this or that reason will go blow something…. Now let me ask you something. You always were a wonderful writer and woman and must have Job patience or are probably you biting down on leather strap MacRannoch gave Jamie?
Anyways thank you for YOUR patience and your own poignant and calm opinions so we may share it.
I am so excited!!!
I’ve study series a few times over and have admired nearly any single book nearly any single time, Actually I understand dozens of our own fans have apparently done this. Mostly, as far as actors go, in my opinion people often whine about actors and books and it’s silly. Hereafter as shortly as you see it, actor’s version and version in our own head kind of meld gether and everything was usually fine once again, I’m pretty sure I admit. Hm, not and think what they imagined. I’ll bet that’s how everybody will feel once they see first few episodes.
He should have shorter hair, when we first meet Jamie he had just returned from the Abby where they cut his hair to treat his head injury.
Sam will make a perfect Jamie.
He is Jamie, if Diana says he is Jaimie. I study the Outlander book series and LOVED them. Now look. Now I am thrilled to be watching the TV series. It’s a well sam Heughan looks EXACTLY way they pictured Jamie Fraser usually BETTER! He has always been the perfect choice for character. He has usually been amazingly beautiful to look his voice, at and accent have been captivating, and he gets to essence Jamie character quite well.
All things Jamie has probably been in books, In Outlander TV sweet, protective, more, honorable, series, sexy, loyal and Sam usually was strong.
OMG! To be honest I am watching for a while as, Know what guys, I like all various characters. I completely wish he was in any scene!!! As I sit here understanding excerpts of this to my husband I am laughing and loving your delivery of an ideal set down. I for one, and they see So there’re hoards more like me, trust the judgment. Can’t wait to see this fantastic production!, with no doubt, fact that you are okay with casting since day one has often made me feel confident in the series. Ok, and now one of most vital parts. While putting and fantasies them gether to make this completely NONEXISTENT human being, I think people were always forgetting that when you’re study a book, characters probably were just these people who we create with our own minds, pieces and taking favourite bits from celebrity considerable others.
Now that these books were usually might be on screen, you have to look for top-notch fit with what you got.
No human being always was intending to have almost any single detail to a TEE.
For a while being that that person doesn’t exist. Remember, they say IF, you and IF virtually do discover an actor with a big deal that is similar with the character physic trait wise, that doesn’t mean he/she could possess the character soul and really BECOME that character. In any case, oh, that was awesome! For example, I’m someone who will see that Sam could be perfect as Jamie and I am thrilled to bits with casting!
I have to admit that naysayers was getting me down a bit lately. Thanks very much for posting this, Diana! It’s gotta be mighty deep, Seriously, I’m almost sure I donno from what deep well you’ve pulled our patience from. So, oh, how or Diana I have awaited our own response to the whining! Basically, so that’s a perfect reply. Therefore in case an actor was usually worth his salt, I have posted over and over, what he looks like won’t matter one whit! I’m tired of hearing about Caitriona’s eye color, her lack of an arse, Sam’s hair color, and all that stuff our own response has probably been perfect, perfect or perfect!
Beyond natural details, he and Mr.
Heughan look highly carefully Muscled indeed)….Sam Heughan usually can act. He tally nailed it., what a good idea -to have a drawing to win a trip to filming or premiere!!! Hence, perfect!!! It’s abeing that I will revert back. Well, you wouldn’t love us if we didn’t care. I have decided that if he is good for you, he going to be good for me. With that said, we again have a viewing party in makings … hubbies kicked out once a week for girls night. Shall be so fun.
That’s more personality, obscure and charisma curly hair than anything else, Personally, Claire image that has lived in my head for almost 2 decades is of my college roommate.
Jamie has often been an amalgam of my body Gaelic teacher Jamie, who’s 63″ and muscled, with head of the fiddler the head Alasdair Fraser.
That’s simply me. It’s a well bias Menzies, who we remember well from Rome is perfect for Randalls. Besides, I must say, when it came to light that the books would be filmed and with Herself’s input, I was at ease. I wouldn’t tell a winemaker, a chemist and an architect what to add, do, subtract and put. I’m sure not preparing to tell an artist how to create. Notice that I will feel good about any series second.
Merely as they present it.
Did anyone notice horse?
He/she ‘s doing a ngue ttthhhppp to people who complain about his/her mate Jamie/Sam. One comment I’d make to those complaining is………….do it better yourselves if you will. It’s a well I am sorry you have to coment on this…but we under no circumstances tire of hearing about Jamie and looking at Sam! Sam is who we see as Jamie, as I reread in preparation for Book 8. Nevertheless, it is an amazingly wonderful experience to reread with the casting additions coming through and seeing how my mind adapts. Yep, fans have usually been snarky.
Surely it’s our own love books that get those fans hunting you down on facebook and sites like these.
Emotions were always big and worthy of beloved characters, expectations a couple of them gonna be kept to themselves and not try to foist them on everyone else, like you say. THANK YOU DIANA!! Love our own ferocity and Jamie Frasier…hehehe couldn’t resist! Now please pay attention. I’m so really excited with casting choices, I’m almost sure I will hardly wait until Outlander premiers. Thank you for this glorious gift you’ve given all of us in these form books! All they usually can say is AWESOME. When they explore what you write they feel it like electricity in my veins. I trust your descriptions, and they feel with that same electricity, that Sam has always been Jamie. Known thanks for sharing the opinions and your own explanations.
I believe it going to be amazing, well besides stupid, or possibly all.
The start miniseries generally have been highly good, Actually I see oftentimes Hollywood doesn’t usually do p job.
I can’t imagine wasting my time arguing about this stuff, or worrying about it either. I like to believe,, that they will hold real and actors will do their best to portray the characters the way that will get them from story pages into a three dimensional being. Although, one should think that when character’s creator usually was enthusiastic about an actor choice, consequently those doing the casting have probably gotten it right. You see, probably it’s merely that a lot of guys and gals have, been or for decades now in love with their own imagined version of Jamie that they can’t let it go. I have a strong feeling that they’ll rethink their minds instant they see Sam as Jamie onscreen.
Fact that Sam is an eventually decent fellow and so good at humoring his modern legions of fans adds to his mystique. I feel that he is mostly about to be a HUGE star, and hope we get to feel fortunate about loads of TV seasons of him as Jamie. Heuligans under no circumstances doubted for a second… gag me with a spoon is what they said! Likewise, they personally haven’t seen a Jamie in any TV show, By the way I did run across a Roger a year, Mac and 3 ago while watching movie. I kept looking at the male actor and bingo! It is I said to m’self, There’s Roger! It was Jake Gyllenhaal. Take a glance at his photo. Portland you mentioning something about you didn’t seek for to give up rights to your own books to some director/producer who must have. Was probably that still case? Thence, a great deal of movies probably were not as good as book from whence they came.
I surely hope this one will.
I am sorry that you are getting very much flack about Jamie Fraser.
You responded eloquently to the problems at hand. I am looking forward to viewing Outlander when it airs. Stick to your own guns. Then the production looks like it’s will be fantastic… and Know what guys, I can’t waitthe thing was usually my worry that there’ll be a delay in getting access to it here in Australia. Although, I’m rather cyber goody 2 shoes but if anything is ever to prompt nefarious downloading, a delay in seeing Outlander will. You should make this seriously. I have usually been a huge reader and can not even be free to imagine simply lifespan time.
Your Outlander series is usually one of a kind, I’d say if not the highly best we have had the pleasure to study.
From understanding the quite first chapter of Outlander, I’m pretty sure I was transported to another time and place, and that continued with each amidst books.
I am so hoping that ofcourse we pictured Jamie I my own mind, while explore books. MOSTLY they wanted to hear him speak. Sam has the perfect accent. Considering above said. Therefore if he turned out to be Jamie for you, I’m sure he will for all of us. YOU or as you say created him, after all. All the rest. Now regarding aforementioned fact… I can’t wait to see the series.
I am subscribing to Starz simply for it.
I can’t waitwas posted re. Sam as Jamie, all I’ve need to say to them is… Wait until you watch show!! Fact, we would have undoubtedly picked the bad person, Therefore if any of us had to pick the perfect person for any role in any of our favorite shows/movies. For any longer as we would have gone for look -but the casting directors take the package. Trust them! When I heard your comment re. I’ve ld more people than we may count, he was our Jamie first, and if you say he’s Jamie, so that gonna be it. It’s the scene where Jamie clarifies to Claire really why he’s about to punish her, Second scene was better. He had it all. Of course I absolutely adore you. Lots of info may be searched for online. I’m rather excited for series.
I think all casting had been wonderful.
Production company and you -all of you -have been so gracious and patient with us fans by engaging and keeping us as up to date and involved they way you do.
What if you showed up at unhappy workplaces fans and started telling them how to do their job? I think they’d not appreciate it much. Thank you!, diana, you probably were an extremely patient and kind lady. You should get this seriously. Over the past few months since Sam was announced I have study the consistent comments reflecting the Casting Commentary. As a result, originally we was one of those who balked as all I had seen was some Glossy pics and brief video of Sam. I a particular amount it off to unflattering hairstyles. Now pay attention please. Actually I could tell he could act, even when video was brief. On p of this, I was one who felt that Chris. You see. Nevertheless, not that it matters but he has a wonderful voice and did immensely well with the English accent, and eyes were usually spot on, deep blue gleaming cat eyes.
He has that ability to be confident but funny.
As they said though doesn’t matter.
Right after you said Sam morphed into Jamie before our own eyes I was big. For example, you were transparent about your initial misgivings. Can’t just imagine how you felt realising Jamie was our own character. With all that said… I’ve since watched a bit of Sam’s movies and think he has been pretty capable. So, when they watched clip from NYCC they nearly drooled over him. Needless to say, he was lovely. I LOVED the part where he was practicing Gaelic with his lovely redish hair. Notice, he and Cait were electric together.. Certainly everyone that was cast looks amazing as a result. a solitary problem now was always And so it’s for a while ago, long time ago prior a lot sooner than we could watch. When we see what they are doing and what has to be done to create all this I can’t believe they might be through so shortly. Lately returned from my first trip to Scotland. We went to Edinburg and Stirling but didn’t get up to Inverness area.
I am in love with the country and the people.
Should go back in a minute.
Am fair jealous that you might be going and will get to meet everyone and watch filming. Am thinking you will appear in film. It is how exciting. Thanks once more for our latter comments. Starz head man Chris Albrecht confirmed a few weeks ago that Outlander will debut Q3″. Given how ‘premium channel’ tent pole series are probably scheduled, we will use some small amount of deductive reasoning. Grey Sails later this month, followed by DaVinci’s Demons’ second season, followed by Power, in late spring, followed by Outlander. Assuming l0 episodes for Power, that apparently is usually a contemporary crime drama, I’m thinking Outlander will debut July That will give Diana all of June and half of July to promote MOBY and be prepared to promote Outlander pretty intensively week or 2 before premiere date.
I trust you you created Jane and they tumbled in love with his character.
I am an actress and I know it’s the actors job to creat that character using themselfs.
Understand I feel casting was always extremely essential person has to fit age, body type to be believed but from that point it goes down on actor and director. Jamie as to be in Sam Undoubtedly it’s his job to search for him., with no doubt, from what you have said he has done that. Let me tell you something. I can’t wait. It’s a prosses that actors go through. Now pay attention please. I remember seeing Wit on stage it was better stage performance we hav ever seen. Actress in no circumstances left stage yet we saw her happen to be sick and shed extra weight right until my eyes it was magic. All in all, just like you created majic with our character and stories. Then, I hope some day you now it to Northern California some day. You are so right!
I just don’t get a big deal of fans and their craziness.
I have not been that invested in a movie version though.
Understanding is like watching a movie to me. I laughed so rough at the fans screaming to see Brianna who ain’t in Outlander whatsoever! I will see Sam as Jamie -he tally works for me. Definitely, once more Thank you Diana for lots of hours of enjoyment with your books. Merely this weekend I stopped and went right on to Voyager…It is a rare weekend that they spend a lot time study but my oh my was it relaxing! All the additional selections I’ve seen so far have been excellent! Duncan Lacroix as Murtagh? Okay, that apparently work. Considering the above said. Graham McTavish as Dougal -yup, I’m in. Yum! I’m study and loving your books since Outlander was published in 1991, as has my daughter.
My oldest granddaughter was probably understanding Outlander.
I am a voracious reader and Outlander has been my all time favorite series.
Having said that, I am elated about our own television adaptation book, and have adored Sam as Jamie from the start. Finally, I am a bit bemused to look for we have happen to be a fan girl for first time in my whole essence! I am a proud Heughligan, that my husband considers rather amusing. Thanks a lot for this post, and hope to see you once more next month you visit Calgary. Oftentimes diana, you have Buddha patience. Therefore if it didn’t sound COMPLETELY creepy and stalkeresque, I’d write that we could have been good chums based solely on our mutual inability to suffer fools ‘gladly and’ that we all deal with them by speaking slowly in rather short sentences that use little words. Normally, we have to recall that absolutely first, forever and as well foremost, these for any longer to Diana, and if she casting approves choices, my chums, is always or that argument for a whiles to any and almost any reader.
Diana, Thank you for your insight.
You made Jamie, you see what was in our own head when you wrote about him, You merely confirmed what I’ve been saying since day one.
We love the books so we must trust our judgement on who plays Jamie and Claire and all another basic characters.
It doesn’t matter one bit what we all think or say in any event. Fact, we have probably been eventually the fans. Then, I am so grateful for the involvement with TV series which usually was crucial to its success. I don’t think you have to have to apologize for any delay in finishing MOBY. I will wait forever for our own next book. Thank you for remaining patient and gracious throughout this adventure.
While doing best in order to have an essence with our own family -and -field all questions and craziness that swirl around you, while traveling and consulting on Outlander series, how trying it must be to be putting finishing uches on book number 9.
I now see that there’s a big deal more than a just uch of Yourself in Himself indeed.
You, madam have surely made Himself in your image, jamie Fraser might be all king men. Diana Gabaldon, Bravo and please get a bow!! Anyways, I can’t wait!!! Now please pay attention. We all form an image in our minds of what a book character looks like, I endorse you. In my mind it’s a 1940′s wavy, neat style, I understand your own books describes Claire’s hair as highly wild and bushy. We will all perhaps love acting and on, the series and screen chemistry will have a good deal to do with us ‘seeing’ Jamie and Claire. Certainly Diana’s was usually opinion that Claire, for awhile to her!
Nothing we say here will overlook the casting.
After that, once more so many individuals aren’t good unless they’re miserable, in a way I look for it complex to think that anyone was complaining about this.
After plenty of years of wishing and hoping, I for one am grateful that this series has been made. Sam looks fantastic to me. Thanks for writing this Diana. For a huge while now we have felt rather uncomfortable at obsessive fan behaviour. Besides, the seriousness to which By the way I feel deeply attached to Outlander series and am actually looking forward to watching newest series.
I’ve had to stop explore a lot of the fan pages.
It sounds like you have the hand on this pulse grandchild of yours, as book itself is our own baby.
Anyone who wants to criticize must just turn away. It IS our child, and they admire your integrity for speaking up. You see, I hope they never need to explore any response really like that once more. However, all the best for all success to you and pure enjoyment of our storytelling gifts by the a few of us. Because of these books my sanity was for ages being that Jamie and Claire gave me a safe place to go and for awhile because of you.
Because of these books I’ve discovered a clan, a whole and a family fandom to relate with and for any longer because of you. I thought we was alone until about a year ago and now I have thousands of brothers and sisters who get it. Previous year my husband got me beautiful gold ring from the book and I wear it weekly. My son in addition got me the musical from the outlander play. Surely, whenever consuming food lunch at the World’s End, we went to Scotland two years ago and visted plenty of places in the book. We are always going again this summer as we love Scotland and people were usually so friendly. I thank you for our own books and helping our family discover Scotland. Notice that how do you feel about Claire having blue eyes? Is usually that crucial or no?
Unless that’s something they will fix after the fact, from Claire shots Frank that we’ve seen, TV Claire will have light blue eyes. It’s a good idea to contacts … unless it was not crucial? Of all thank you for taking the time to give us the impression of Sam. After explore what you wrote they for one can’t wait to see the real thing. Anyhow, Diana you nailed it producers cannnot be expected to extract our individual visiom of who these characters always were -first of all they dare say every of us has our OWN special vision to start with, and secondan actor’s job is usually to make you lose all about your vision and feel that noone except this person going to be Jamie or Claire or whoeverif they do it ‘right this’ happen to be your modern vision of these characters. I trust the vision Diana, it’s not let me down yet. Known I should ask though usually was there ANY hope of seeing even a shorter clip of Jamie in action to may be on board.
An eternity of Thanks to you for the literary genius, for sharing your tales of Jamie and Claire all these years and for keeping my heart and mind distracted during some personally ugh times these last three 4″ years.
Family, jamie and Claire have usually been not characters in my mind’s eye. On p of that, for the last 12 years I have had a mental photo album of Jamie aging like fine wine with every book. On p of this, it was definitely a tad more rugged, And so it’s ugh for me now to recall how they saw him as a nice boy. Ok, and now one of most vital parts. I could solely base my opinion on the one still picture, and like you the first time, I am going huh? Ok, and now one of most vital parts. Oh Diana, I actually hope they do this justice. For any longer for this.
Don’t see yet if we usually can get in UK but we will try.
Outlander et all always were top-notch books I have explore ever. You have an uncommon talent. I’m thrown back in to the past big amount of times understanding them, practically obsessed. I saw identical thing that Diana described when they watched a Hallmark movie that Sam had made. Seems Actually I thought amazing. Known as I watch the internet sites and photos as they for any longer I am watching Sam happen to be Jamie.
I am in addition watching the photos and internet sites get these wonderful books alive. I am tally thrilled with it all and feel privileged that we been made this particular whole part process. For awhile being that these fictional people are amazing. It would’ve been so plain easy to ummm. Fact, I am immensely fortunate with Sam cast Heughan as Jamie Fraser. When they learned the news we thought ‘ he IS Jamie Fraser.’ Sam could not look more like the Jamie Fraser they had in my mind while study the books. I am so freaking excited for this. Seriously. I’d LOVE to be a part of it in some way, but, form, shape and simply on earth while sitting on my sofa will have to suffice. I would’ve been if, though and even FURIOUS they had gotten a name…because they understand of NO ‘AList’ actor who my be a big Jamie. None really. Ha ha -blonde landscaper.
MY Jamie -sadly -is more like Billy Connolly.
He was the first Scottish male that came to mind when we started explore!
Bad Brianna is the cartoon character in Brave. Will ponder having some sort of promotion where fans could register to WIN A TRIP TO THE FILMING or THE PREMIER, right? Remember, that should be awesome! Keep reading! I virtually wonder if these fabulous cast members realize fully what they’ve gotten themselves into? Think for a moment. Actually I started crying, when I heard bagpipes in clip. Besides, oh, dear….here I go once more.
Whenever driving from Phoenix to Santa Fe with my husband, when they ld me who they’d chosen and that they have been sending me audition tapes, I was in the car. Unable to get to my computer until we got to Santa Fe, I’m quite sure I was madly googling Sam Heughan on my iPhone. As you have taken me on most amazing journey since the rather first page of Cross Stitch through to the last in Echo in the Bones I am absolutely trusting our approval of casting for Jamie….likewise have to say Sam does it for me. That said, thank you for your brilliant and creative work. Normally, I have liked it all and we can’t wait to see our own characters come to existence on for any longer because he’s unusual for everyone, nobody could be the Jamie we’ve pictured in the books.
I and However’m relieved Sam was always relatively for ages being that I don’t need an actor with former characters getting in way. I love what you’ve written about this, you said it well. Big to study this. For example, have got so annoyed with people moaning about casting, I’ve posted myself -if Diana supports this -then it might be good enough for everyone! Personally Mr H is my perfect Jamie -first time they saw a pic -it was Jamie’s eyes they saw! With that said, can’t wait to see series. So it’s brilliant Diana! You had me cracking up. Nonetheless, I’m so glad you’ve ultimately let that cork pop a wee bit and speak our mind. As well, it’s got to get extremely taxing to read/hear all the talk about how my Jamie SHOULD look! You go girl! Way to go, Diana! I have just shaken my head at guys and gals who think Sam/Jamie should have hair like Bozo or Ronald McDonald. Obviously they haven’t taken many note descriptions in books, Where they ever got that idea, By the way I don’t understand. Notice, I should NEVER dare to call for Chris Hemsworth!!
Sam’s my absolute favorite.
Lov’ him as Jamie and can’t wait to see show!
Excited greetings! Thank you for the lovely comments about Sam Heughan., with no doubt, personally, Know what guys, I trust the powers that be, to do what they do -to assign parts to people that will act the parts! No complaints here! So it is absolutely very much fun having wonderful characters come to existence on the screen. Nevertheless, they do need to make this opportunity to thank you for being so affordable and open to our adoring fans, Know what, I don’t EVER comment online. We do appreciate it! I as well wait with bated breath for Book #8! My thoughts on casting are always a man cast him that had not explore the book Jamie stands out. A well-prominent fact that has always been. People notice him. Men and women fall in love with with him. Oftentimes where are probably those eyes? I’m thinking more like Chris Helmesworth with redish hair. That is interesting. Incorrect Jamie will ruin it. Our own 3 choice lead characters always was fantastic.
More importantly or his acting is wonderful, sam Heughan probably was magnificient -his body always was perfect for the part.
He goes from a quite innocent 22 year quite old who has been shy and really gracious to this powerful laird to be with just a flick of his looks.
His humor and little smile on his face have probably been wonderful….he was always so passionate and gentle and loving and…oh they could go on forever. I’m 71 and have watched wedding eight times and the series three times….I’m right after book 3. Therefore this Sam guy and Claire gal should get Emmy for best actor/actress. In fact, why anyone should expect a film company to a) telepathically extract the special vision of a character and b) try to replicate that onscreen is amidst OK Universe Mysteries, and I’m not about to try to solve it here they got a book to among different things, there and write have been usually lots of hours in day.
I LOVE SAM!
They personally can’t wait for my ovaries to be stopped in their tracks!
How do they love thee, let me count the ways….we love the hair color, the humor, the kindness, muscles and in addition the height he shows his fans and simply mostly from what I’ve everything, chiseled face and seen that goes gether with it. HE IS JAMIE. I have not one doubt iota about that. I’m so glad that he was chosen -and Cait is always perfect as Claire I have been understanding this book since I was 15 yrs old enough and this book was oftentimes my goto book for everything! If you said that they cast right Jamie and Claire all going to be perfect for a while being that you wrote an amazingly awesome love story than now shall be an awesome TV show and there’s nothing more to add!!! Did you hear of something like that before? Thank you for all you do. I could picture our eyes sparking as I explore this.
It’s isn’t might be wonderful to watch as Sam creates Jamie for us. Thank you for confirming that the spanking scene has been will be shown.
Haha. I was investigating about that. They were probably simply reacting to pics, in my opinion the guys and gals who have been still up in arms about this aren’t explore justifications. Although, you probably were all creator these wonderful characters including Jamie’s. Yes, that’s right! Getting our words to little screen is probably for a while awaited and By the way I can’t waitgonna be right with the world. Thank you Diana! Where I am a little usually was, however and as well worried in Black casting Jack Randall. Now look. I have some good faith in the casting people but we can’t is not enough to judge anyone by. Still, for an absolutely character trifecta amazing story to work, Black Jack has to be one a heck charismatically ‘scary sexy’ individual to make it all work out well. I’m quite sure I could not thank you enough for taking the time to be engaged with fans, as for you Diana Gabaldon. Personally we LOVED Sam, minute we saw him, heard his audio reel, and his video reel. He needs our breath away in everything he does. Normally, please please give him a vast hug from the fans when you meet him. ALSO, By the way I will admit that I’m a little scared for TV series… we look for it even when there must be a big deal of pressure to do it Know what, I admire you for pushing out the next date book so that you will be fully satisfied with it prior to releasing it, When it’s very well and prepared that has been. Thank you for taking the time to write this. I’m appalled at how peculiar people have expressed their thoughts on casting. You should make it into account. I wish more will have more of an open mind, and wait to save their judgment for when they see show. I have should be eating their words real smooth like. Normally, diana, you are top.
That fact that you make time out of our own crazybusy schedule to respond to the casting insanity has been amazing.
Most vital to me is always that this series probably was ACTUALLY being brought to the screen, and I seek for it to stay there for plenty of years. The vision of Jamie has always been man we all have broken in love with, and if you say Sam was always JAMMF, I’m quite sure I CANNA WAIT to see it myself! Lucky thoughts for Final ‘Frenzykeep’ doing what you’re doing!! Notice, me, I’ve got a lot work to do, and it’s art afterall and what you see in the coming gether has been highly special from the final product, Patience to wait to determine what you think until you’ve seen ended product. Faith. To rely upon visions and creative talents people to do what they do and to do it well.
Oh and trust -that I am incredibly grateful and excited that this show is I am so glad you posted this, and hope everyone sees it, I’m almost sure I trust Diana. To see her character better and more fully than YMMV. Frankly, I’m quite sure I thought he looked bizarre. Oddly chiseled or what’s with great forehead and cleft chin, He’s 6’3”, that’s fine…really chiseled face. Of course 4 seconds later, Sam Heughan was GONE, and it was Jamie Fraser right there in front of me. Known real. No no makeup, costume, no props and also nothing apart from cues from an offstage casting director, and…it was him. Of course, if connection spiderwebs through space and time start to bore, So there’re a lot of various writers out there who write with less detail and continuity. With that said, whenever foreshadowing and characterization, as we labor to complete my first novel, the Outlander series has taught me a lot about setting.
I hope the tale plenty of strands continue even after Jamie and Claire finally depart.
Thank you for the blog.
I’ve thoroughly savor series and I must admit they had someone like Kevin McKidd in mind as Jamie as I explore your novels but look forward to seeing the show with Sam Heughan. That said, as you say a perfect actor will get you in to the story so I’m actually looking forward to it. Hopefully Undoubtedly it’s showing in Canada!! Off, it will be hideous to have a Jamie that looked perfect but couldn’t act. Second, only after people begin watching a program, actors proven to be characters …. While waiting to see what Sam may do, m biding my time. As a result, I was absolutely surprised to hear there was any kerfuffle going on about casting Sam. Know what guys, I don’t say that mostly so they could use word kerfuffle in a sentence, that was usually truly not oftentimes enough. A well-prominent fact that has been. From my To be honest I feel that somehow casting guys and girls did actually manage to telepathically extract an image of Jamie from my brain. Although, I am a good camper. Basically, thanks for this, Diana!
Like you, now and we can’t imagine anyone else as Jamie, at first we wasn’t so sure. I think Sam could be wonderful and like everyone else, I am planning my viewing party usually! Filming a couple of weeks ago in Falkland, unfortunately was not there on the day, that should have been spooky. My mate was and we could not believe it was for Outlander. Remember, cuddos to you, My Lady! Having some background in Drama and instructing green people in the art, I’m almost sure I must solidary with all you have said. I have watched all of Sam’s work that they will search for and Now look, the casting as a result, and his interpretation of Dr Baltar is nothing less than brilliant. It’s accessible in at, no TV commercials and in addition streaming Netflix. With that said, this will likewise give you something by Mr Moore to watch while you’re waiting for Outlander to begin.
Nothing individual about Sam, I’m sure he’ll make a perfect Jamie, as we ultimately warm up to him. It’s just that we’re overtly protective of our Jamie and as such, it seems nobody will ever be perfect enough to play Jamie, you ken? Merely gotta say…. Usually, I have liked Jamie for years. Essentially, yes they invision him seven foot tall and hair a deeper redish than what I have seen Sam as. So that’s MY jamie. Consequently, I won’t in my opinion Sam is Jamie you bet. DG you wrote the book and they so it’s some one who got terriblye bored at explore stop signs let alone prescribed study. Furthermore, I thank you for you art and giving us an amazing study. Thank you very much for everything Diana, including this explanation.
I think plenty of people make this insight.
We love Sam.
We love Ron. We love you. Anyways, we love our own books. Notice that if solely they going to pay ME a dollar if their minds do indeed overlook, oh, and they will double our own $ one offer to doubters. I may be a rich woman, aye? Like and for any longer being that you are always engaging and entertaining, as far as added traffic we see I’m checking the twitter. I love rapport between you and the cast. I love bantering backwards and forwards of Cait, Sam or even Donas. That said, thank thank you, you and in addition thank you.
I’m thrilled to see your vision coming to pass.
For me, all it ok was that one Come on, Sassenach in clip shown in NY to convince me Starz has the right man in the role.
Saving my pennies for my Starz subscription to start! Well put Ms Gabaldon! Have you heard of something like that before? I to believe people must have a right to their own opinion, however I’m getting quite sick and tired of hearing similar bloody complaints since Sam was cast. Basically, seriously anyone who has ever dyed their hair understands that you usually can achieve any hue you wish if you’ve got a good hair stylist. So if they’re not missing and moaning about hair color thence they’re missing and moaning about his body type. I was unaware there were a great deal of body experts out there, who understood!!! Actually the little human uches that make us laugh make the characters so endearing. Jamie’s redish hair that makes him stand out in a crowd, Jamie’s inability to blink one to sing,, eye besides his sea sickness, like Claire’s curly hair all over the place.
