I’ve honestly wanted to interview Jack since he was first cast, back in 2016, as Hector Dalrymple, during Season 3 filming. I did a piece on him then, OutlanderBTS Casting News: More on Jack Holden, playing Hector… Lord John Grey’s First Love, and after doing research for that article, I remember thinking, “What a talented guy.”
The fact that Jack’s work on Outlander ended up on the cutting room floor, coupled with the likelihood of a Lord John Grey spin off, makes him even more interesting, (for me). Every once in a while, I revisit the ever growing cast list, and a handful of people stand out as ones I’d like to interview; on my latest peruse, Jack was still on my list. I reached out, and luckily we connected and got it done. I find him to be delightful, and I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of him over time. He has a penchant for one man shows, (he’s done two now), his latest, Cruise, which he wrote, produced and stars in, will be playing at the Duchess Theater in the West End of London, from May 18th to June 13th; rehearsals started on Monday, April 26th. You’ll find out more about the compelling story of Cruise in the interview. If I were in the UK, I’d be going!
Jack tells me about his casting story, his experience on Outlander, his scene being cut, what he’s up to now, and more. We talk about the spin off – will Jack come back as Hector for the spin off? (Will Sam Hoare come back as Hal?) These questions and many more, remain.
Without further ado, please enjoy my conversation with the lovely, intelligent, and talented, Jack Holden…
👉 The Dipp have invited me for a chat this next week, so I’ll be joining Caitlin Gallagher for a live Zoom conversation and Q&A on May 12th at 8:00PM EDT. Topics on the table for discussion include: what scenes and storylines are likely for Season 6, how departures from the books impact the story/ future plot lines, thoughts on the future of Outlander (the show), and a possible LJG spin off. Caitlin will also be asking me a few questions about memorable Outlander interviews and experiences. It’ll be on Zoom, so you’ll be able to type in your questions and comments and be part of the convo. I hope you’ll join us!
