In January, when Starz released the first promo for its upcoming Outlander drama, fans of the novels on which the series is based cried out for more footage of its gallant, good-looking Scottish hero (played by Sam Heughan).
On Friday, the pay cabler delivered.
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.
Press PLAY on the video below to see more of Claire’s pre-time-jump life with hubby Frank (Tobias Menzies, Game of Thrones), more glowing shots of the Scottish countryside and more Jamie/Claire action – especially their first conversation alone after returning to his family’s estate.
