Sam Heughan: Second season of Outlander ‘has more politics’
Outlander star Sam Heughan believes followers of the hit show are in for a surprises when the second season hits the screens – and hopes it will draw in even more fans.
Season two of the time-travel drama – dubbed Scotland’s answer to Game Of Thrones – sees the action move initially from 18th-century Scotland to 18th-century Paris, with stars promising the new season will have a very different feel to the last.
Heart-throb Scots actor Heughan, who plays young warrior Jamie, said everyone involved in the project wants to make the new setting feel as authentic as possible.
Speaking during filming on set in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire, Heughan said “Playing Jamie has been terrific. In season one I felt I really knew him and by the end of the season he really had changed.
“In season two we move to France and it’s got a different feel. It’s a different world, really, from what we’re used to in season one. It’s a very luxurious place and all the characters there are very exuberant, and there’s a lot more politics involved at the start of season two.
“My character is constantly changing and his story is as well. It’s lovely to have elements of the character we know in season one but he’s evolving, he’s growing up.”
