Have you read all of the Outlander books/companion books? Has
@Writer_DG shared unpublished writings with you?
Yes and Yes.
Will you get a break before filming of season two starts or just go straight into it?
We will get a mini-break before we dive into Season two.
13 ep season 2? Thinking of splitting the book into 2 seasons?
No, Dragonfly will be one season, just like the first book.
Will you be returning to Doune for the next season?
Probably not, since we don’t go back to Castle Leoch in
Who among cast is most like the character they play?
@caitrionambalfe Stong, intelligent lady with a great sense of humor!
Even b4 being renewed were you planning on how to bring DIA to screen? Biggest challenges to this?
We definitely talked about it. Impossible not to talk about future books while breaking 1st season
Are the actors as excited for Season 2 as we are? Perhaps they’re a wee bit knackered right at this moment.
We’re all tired, but also INCREDIBLY excited about Season Two!
@TheMattBRoberts also do scouting for locations? Do you go location hunting? They have been spectacular!
Yes he does and I do too. All the writers/producers scout locations for their blockdo the fans help keep you guys going? we know we’re a handful!
Yes, they do. The support is amazing and keeps us going on tough days.
My man is watching
#Outlander w/me. Did cast and crew significant others know the series before filming?
I would say most of the cast and crew had never heard of the books before they started working on the show
Can you tell us if Sir Marcus MacRannoch was part of
@Outlander_Starz adaptation of book?
YES!We cast Frazer Hines in the role the man responsible for
@Writer_DG setting books in Scotland
how mini is a mini break?
Will you be joining Ron in a podcast during the season? love the podcasts.
I don’t know. He hasn’t asked! 😉
Are there different producers for each block? Though it was only the writers and directors.
All of our writers are also Producers. so, a different writer/producer covers each block
How do you decide on directors?
We look at their past work and also interview them and get references
Sam isn’t a heroic romantic?
But, of course! However, Sam can blink…. 🙂
Is anyone keeping costumes? They’re sooo good!
No, probably not. However Terry told me I could have Claire’s coat with the fur trim…..;)
Did T Menzies read bits of both Frank & Jack in casting or did you cast on basis of his general brilliance? 🙂
The amazingly talented
@TobiasMenzies read both a Frank scene and a Jack scene for his audition
What character do you look forward to the most to cast from Dragonfly in Amber?
Probably Lord John and FERGUS!!!
What character do you think will be the hardest to cast in Season 2?
Brianna and Roger
Since you’re already got a huge studio in Scotland, will you be filming DIA there?
Yes, we will continue to use our studio as our home base
No clue and it’s very sad. We feel HORRIBLE about it!
Have you given some thought into writing an ep?
Who makes you laugh the most?
Besides the coincidence of hair style, do you have other things in common with Claire?
LOL – Well some would accuse me of being ballsy and outspoken, so I guess there’s THAT coincidence as well! 😉
Were you a fan of the books before working on Outlander?
Um, YES! This was my passion project
@TheMattBRoberts gave me books years ago. Loved them. Pitched them to Ron
Thanks for all the questions! Sorry I couldn’t answer them all.Will try go back to answer ones I missed! Until next time!
