Fans of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, the wait for Starz’s small-screen adaptation of the time-travel/historical romance novels is nearly over. (And if Jamie could wait all that time for Claire, you’ll probably be OK until Aug. 9, no?)
Still, we know how verra much you want behind-the-scenes details on the upcoming drama, so Michael Ausiello corralled executive producer Ron Moore, Gabaldon and stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies (Game of Thrones), Lotte Verbeek (The Borgias) and Graham McTavish in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con interview suite.
In the video above, Gabaldon mentions a popular fellow novelist who gave her advice on the venture, Verbeek talks about why she’s the wrong person to play the mysterious Geillis Duncan, Balfe relates a story about a fortuitous sign received just before her audition and Heughan… well, Heughan is James Fraser.
Press PLAY to hear it all, plus the clan’s take on being welcomed into the “big family” that is the Outlander fandom.
