The events of 2020 have likely forced another Droughtlander on fans who have been treated to a steady supply of Starz’s popular period drama series for quite some time, but it looks like Outlander Season 6 is slowly gearing up to start filming amid new safety guidelines.
In a new interview with Stellar Magazine star Sam Heughan, who has played Jamie Fraser on the show since 2014, has been talking about why he thinks Outlander continues to resonate with its fans, citing the pure central relationship between his thoughtful and occasionally rebellious character and Caitriona Balfe’s strong-minded former World War II nurse, Claire.
“There are a number of reasons [that Outlander’s audience continues to grow], but I believe it’s because at the very heart of it, it’s about a relationship that people aspire to,” Heughan said. “Whether you’re Jamie or you’re Claire, you want to be in that sort of loving relationship, that’s just 100 per cent loyal.”
As he often is, the actor was also pressed on whether he would be up for taking over from Daniel Craig as the next James Bond. Heughan has been linked to the 007 role many times over the last few years, along with the likes of Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Dan Stevens.
