Sam is back in Jamie mode as of today, and gives us a glimpse into a day in his life. Here are some shots of Sam’s first day of filming for Season 5. Wahooooo!
First, coffee… I think late start means they didn’t have to start at the usual very early time. Usually Sam gets up at some ungodly hour like 4:00AM to get a workout in before work! 😩
Then, of course, a workout. Today’s was a quick run around Glasgow (which he says was not that quick), but 8.18 minutes per mile is not bad, if you ask me!
Davie Hollywood has been Sam’s driver since the very beginning, and here they are, together again, starting Season 5…
Travel photo, with lots of gum??? They are heading to location to film today. Makes sense, if Season 5 is starting off like The Fiery Cross does, with the gathering in North Carolina!
And here is Sam’s basecamp on location – his trailer.
This is Sam’s makeup artist, Wendy, whom he’s referred to as “his rock.” She puts on Jamie’s back scars and every bit of makeup Sam wears for the show. They have spent many many hours together over four seasons. Now, time to make Older Jamie ready for his day!
After makeup, time to get dressed… here are Jamie’s togs for the day…
In my interview with Gary Young, he said that a big part of an actor’s job is to “hurry up and wait.” Here is the hurry up and wait area for Season 5, Day 1, and likely where Sam was sitting when he put this nice little Instagram story together for us!
He later added a shot of his lunch which looks very healthy, indeed. Their food on location is catered, since they are often in the middle of nowhere.
I am prepping for my chat with Sera-lys McArthur today, which I am very much looking forward to. If Sam adds any more photos of his food or other exciting glimpses 😜, I will add them here later, in case you’d like to check back.
Have a wonderful day! xo
