This is it! This is the one Outlander fans everywhere have been waiting for: Jamie and Claire together in their very first official pic. Let the kilts and petticoats sparks fly!
The upcoming Starz fantasy historical drama series (there is time travel involved, after all)—which is executive-produced by Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore—is set to debut sometime in 2014.
It follows the story of Claire Randall (a luminous Caitriona Balfe), a World War II combat nurse who finds herself flung back in time to 1743 Scotland, where she meets a young and chivalrous 18th-century Highland warrior named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
Sparks fly between Jamie and Claire as Jamie tries to help her adjust to her new reality. "He teaches Claire how she fits into this period,” Heughan says. “But she's got this modern way of thinking. She's independent and has her own ideas, so they clash."
Outlander is based on the massively popular series of novels by Herself, author Diana Gabaldon (over 20 million copies sold).
We like the obvious chemistry between the two leads here (is it hot in here? also, men should always wear kilts), and are really looking forward to this series. How about you? What do you think about this first look at Jamie and Claire from Ron D. Moore's Outlander?
