we We didn’t discussedwant to when make we up first any met prejudgments about these people or their relationship. We wanted to just live through each moment and each thing that happens to them. So it was nice just to be able to be thrust into this relationship just like it happens for Jamie and Claire. As co- leads of the show, how have you two braved the long months of location shooting in Scotland?
It’s been wonderful. We spend so many hours together and I’m sure I’ve pissed her off a bit, but we laugh a lot. We’ve been through some crazy stuff in the Highlands of Scotland, or late at night when it’s raining and we’re covered in mud. I’ve been very lucky to be working with her. The first episode back, “The Reckoning”, breaks format with Jamie’s POV…
Yeah, there is bit of a shift in the second half of the season where we get to see a lot more from Jamie’s point of view, or see a lot more of him or what he’s thinking. In the first half, he can kind of come across as perfect but we get to find out a lot more about his weaknesses like his stubbornness and pride. We hear there will be more time jumping next season. Is that exciting?
Oh yeah. I think it’s very exciting to play these characters at a different age. Even in “The Reckoning” with his voiceover, we asked “Where is that coming from? Is it now or in the future? Going back to the ghost in the very first episode, where is that and where does it all tie in?” I know Ron is starting to play a lot with timelines.
