Outlander star Sam Heughan connects with photographer Raf Stahelin and Katie Burnett for a new photo shoot from Interview magazine. Heughan dishes on auditioning for Game of Thrones and playing Jamie on Outlander. Discussing going up for roles on Game of Thrones, Heughan confesses, “I met the producers a couple of times and various characters. There was a period where every British actor was going up for something in it. I was so excited about it, I loved it. I felt like it was going to be this huge show—and it certainly is, I’m a huge fan of it.”
Directing the conversation back to Outlander, Heughan comments on Jamie, explaining, “I try to find as much as possible where he’s not [the good guy]. It would be very boring if he was just this generic good guy. I think in the first part of the season, he can come across that way, but that’s because it’s from Claire’s point of view, the whole thing is Claire’s point of view, and she doesn’t know what’s going on. Then in the second part of the season, we start to see from his point of view what he’s gone through. We see that he’s got these relationships with his family that he hasn’t dealt with; he’s stubborn, he’s proud. He punishes her, which might be considered wrong, so he does start to have failings. Towards the end of the season, we have some really intense stuff with Black Jack Randall and you begin to find out who Jamie really is, and that’s exciting for me as an actor. He’s still surprising me, I don’t know who he is, and I refuse to make any decisions about who he is because I want to be surprised and find out other sides to him.” Read more on InterviewMagazine.com.
