Happy 41st Birthday to Mr. Sam the Man Heughan!

Cover art – Beautiful depiction, as always by the talented Vera Adxer – See and purchase Vera’s work here: Vera Adxer’s Art.

April 30 is an auspicious day. Not only was Mr. Sam born on this day, in 1980 (wow, that makes me feel old!), but I met Diana Gabaldon for the first time on this date, back in 2015, at a library event and book signing. Mom was there, and we sang happy birthday to Sam as the closing of the Q&A (wish I had that video to share!).

 It’s an auspicious date for me personally, too. So Happy April 30thth! May good things happen for you today. 

In honor of the big man’s 41st, I am publishing a favorite recent interview with him. I asked a crew of very with it fans for their favorites, and the one most often mentioned was this one. I listened to it, and I have to agree. Excellent, at ease, thoughtful, thorough visit with Sam. (Thank you to Sam and Nicola Roy, and also to my with it fan friends, Jill Rosoff, Joan Fader, Jennifer Schneider, Lisa (Laj), Susan Treglia and Susie Weatherley!)

  1. What a great tribute to Sam. So well thought of by so many friends, cast members and fans! He truly is one of a kind! Here’s to many more seasons of Outlander. I can never get enough of Jamie and Claire!! Sam embodies the character so well. He is Jamie Fraser, the King of all Men!

  2. Thanks for that. In between life-things-like-work-and-kids-that-need-attention it was impossible to keep track of everything today. What an immense explosion of happy thoughts, BTS pictures, fun, and all the charities that become quite serious! You mention we just may feel the earth tilt in a wonderful direction. I dare to say we did. Truly 😉!

  3. As always, I enjoy your blogs. Good choice on the interview.
    Been some wonderful ‘birthday’ messages and pics celebrating Sam’s special day. He is certainly loved by many friends and fans. Gorgeous man…..

    Sad news about Noel Clarke that broke in news this morning (if true, though it doesn’t look good) as I enjoyed his interview with Sam.

  4. Happy Birthday Sam, hope it was a great day for you, your family and friends. Can’t wait for the new season to start. Every one of you who works to bring Outlander to us fans……God Bless and thank you for the fantastic job you all are doing. Please know we are all greatful to everyone of you. This is the first correspondence I have ever sent to anyone in the “Industry.” Jayzee246 @gmail.com. ( Sandra Ceravolo, Kissimmee, Florida Hope you receive it.

  5. As always… the best site to go to,with all the information one needs in a great package! Thanks, Courtney.
