While some of the questions were sophomoric and showed a complete lack of knowledge of the book the show is based on, there were some very good questions about Sam’s take on acting and Hollywood that were awesome.
This sort of thing is an absolute gift to Outlander fans everywhere, and going from how some folks have responded to earlier interviews they just don’t appreciate how lucky they should feel about it.
I mean, I wrote Smallville episode reviews for a fan site years ago and I would have KILLED for the Tom Welling to give as many interviews as Sam Heughan is giving now. As a former actor, I find his answers to questions about acting, theatre, the Hollywood ‘scene,’ and the process fascinating…
It shows how smart Sam is about his choices and how he approaches the work. I also really appreciate how gracious Sam is, even when the interviewer shows a shocking lack of professionalism.
It’s an excellent interview.
