Diana Gabaldon Outlander Series Sam Heughan Picked As Jamie Fraser!
The New Jamie Fraser
Tobias Menzies as Frank Randall And Black Jack Randall Dual Role
Outlander TV Series Coming Soon Spring 2014
At last! The TV Series made by Starz is coming our way in the Spring of 2014. There has been a lot of speculation about who is going to play hotty Jamie Frasier. Well wonder no more. The choice has been made. Its Scottish actor, Sam Heughan.
And it seems that Tobias Menzies will play the dark role of Claire's husband Frank Randall, and also his ancestor, Black Jack Randall.
So far there has been no announcment of who is going to play Claire. The Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon are extraordinary in the fact that they are so real, so indepth and so true to life.
The story seems to leap from the page as you read. The sights, smells, horrors of war, and the true to life characters are so real you feel that you could reach out and touch them.
With each page packed full of humor and sadness, gut wrenching scenes and intense love, this is going to be a hard act to follow. I just hope that all the actors who are chosen to play in this amazing epic will be able to bring the characters to life. Purely because there are a hell of a lot of fans out there who will be watching avidly.
With over 20 million copies sold around the world you can bet that this is going to be one hell of a hit.
For anyone one of you who have no idea what or who I am talking about, where have you been?
Here's the list of books in the series. Start reading, cos you are going to be blown away!
Note: Cross Stitch (Uk) Outlander (US) Same book, different title.
