****Update – Nicola Sturgeon has just announced a new nationwide lockdown law for Scotland today (Jan 4), starting tomorrow (Jan 5), based on rising numbers of coronavirus. Source: itv. On the Scot.gov site (published today, Jan 4), it says that “Film and TV production can continue to take place. All such activity must be done in compliance with industry guidance.” Source: www.gov.scot. So, as long as the production is set up to follow the guidelines set forth, it looks like filming may continue as planned. ****
Season 6 will bring a new Production Designer, no more Jon Gary Steele ☹️. I was pleasantly surprised by the costuming in Season 5, by Trisha Biggar (although it was pointed out in our last OutlanderBTS Zoom party, that the costumes should be dirtier to seem realistic, and I agree!). I think they’ve likely done a great job selecting Gary’s replacement. But 😭.
Paul Donnelly, who plays Ronnie Sinclair, also posted over the weekend about the new year, life, and starting work again this week…

He said “2020!!!! What a year!! It taught me to appreciate the things I have rather than things I wish I had. I made my Outlander debut (which was incredible) I got covid (which is horrendous, I’m still struggling) I made brothers for life in Sam Heughan and Duncan Lacroix and Vincent Moore. Lost my aunt Norah and my amazing uncle billy. Started building my own gym @bxng_glasgow 🥊, got to film in Colombia and work with beautiful people. Was spoiled, loved and looked after by my amazing family… who are my world. 2021 will be a better year though. Get the gym open and get my charity up and running. I can’t wait to get back filming next week and get back to work. I hope you all had a great Hogmanay and that 2021 is great for you. Slainte Mhath.”
I hope this post finds you safe and well. May we be filled with hope and love for the new year. xo
