Show lands Sam’s talent and viewers’ hearts
FIRST came the Diana Gabaldon books, starting with Cross Stitch, and then season one of Outlander, the time-travel drama that has swept Australia up in its path.
Season two begins airing on Foxtel’s Soho channel tomorrow night and Outlander star, Sam Heughan, flew Down Under recently to promote the series and meet with fans and media – and caught some sport while he was here.
His flying visit to Australia in March began with a rugby match between The Waratahs and the Highlanders.
“Alliance Stadium had a great atmosphere and it was very family-oriented,” Heughan said.
“I’m a huge rugby fan and support the Scotland team, but it was great to be able to see some local rugby.
“Southern Hemisphere rugby is very much attacking rugby.”
The actor also visited Bondi Beach and Manly to soak up the sun, and climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
“The visit was short but fun,” he said.
