Fans of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novels, here’s your first chance to see Jamie and Claire in action. Verra exciting, no?
Starz on Saturday released the first sneak peek at its upcoming historical drama, which is based on Gabaldon’s international best sellers.
(If you’re already familiar with the plot, skip down to the video and indulge in the action, meaningful glances and kilts.)
The series, adapted by Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore, follows the story of Claire Randall (played by Irish actress Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (newcomer Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
