Arm Wrestle Redux? Heughan VS. Cree in Paris…

The Land Con fan convention is happening this weekend in Paris, France, and members of the Outlander cast are there: Steven Cree, Richard Rankin, Lotte Verbeek, and Sophie Skelton. Sam arrives tomorrow, and he dropped a hint about an arm wrestling rematch between Steven Cree and himself (the original match happened in London a year ago, at Starfury).

Sam was not able to attend this year’s Starfury convention due to work on his new film, The Spy Who Dumped Me, prompting abundant good natured ribbing and the refrain #SamWho at the event, by Caitriona and fans…

I happened to be in London last year, and caught that first arm wrestling match, which I recap below…

The pre wrestle prep…

And table #1 was deemed too flimsy…

Steven warmed up with the splits…

and Sam tried wooing Steven with his Gaelic…

Finally, the big moment came…

and Round 2 goes to a disbelieving Cree…

Round 3… Sam limbers up…

and then plays to the crowd…

Round 3 goes to Sam, but they’re still friends…

Steven has been training for this rematch for a full year, and the trash talk was plentiful…

Duncan LaCroix even got in…

If Land Con attendees get a panel with these two, they’re in for a treat. Steven is so naughty and it’s hard for Sam to keep a straight face with him around…

May the best man win this long awaited rematch, and if you’re in Paris this weekend, have a blast 😘

  1. Would really love to attend an see them “live”, but age and knowing that it is already booked full, make me renounce. I suppose that all this will be very funny and that the people who will be able to attend will have some happy memories. To share or not? Good luck to all of you. I am just waiting for S3 to air around Feb 2018. Nothing earlier here! Sorry.
    Anyway, I love Sam and Steven as they appear in Outlander and I am a huge fan. Please go on with the series for some time. I should not say that… Will be 80 soon and perhaps never see the last ones. Is there a way to stay connected after passing away? Will have to put that in my last will and Testament for my heirs: “please let me be connected with Outlander when gone to eternity”. Maybe STARZ will be available in Paradise? Just joking…
