And the Award Goes to… Sam and MacKenzie at The Oscars… Outlander BTS What’s New

He wore New Balance, complete with matching sports watch, and a black baseball cap….😜. Sam posted this picture earlier yesterday saying “Watching @TheAcademy from up here!”  My guess is  he was on a training run for the actual ceremony – shaking off some jet lag and going out for a pre-Oscar afterparty night spin.

Sam flew in for one day (ugh!) for the Academy Awards celebrations.

While in LA he saw buddy Graham McTavish for some beach time…

And that night, Sam and MacKenzie attended the Vanity Fair party together. Here’s a shot of MacKenzie looking gorgeous, with Sam getting touched up for photos in back of her. 

Glam Sam…

Here’s a really cute shot of them together…

And a little clip of Sam…

The Anna he mentions is a writer for Glamour Magazine. Press usually visits the set sometime mid season, and it looks like that’s about to happen.

We heard from Kristin Dos Santos that she will also be heading to Scotland for a mid-season check in, so we can expect to see some pieces coming out in the near future. 

In addition to the time change, Sam is adjusting to a major weather change – this is a recent running photo from Scotland, after the UK was hit with the “Beast from the East” last Thursday.

We had an inkling Sam would be at some Oscars events, as he flew from Edinburgh to LA on Saturday. Here he is with a fan at the Edi airport before leaving.

 

In other news this weekend, pals Steven Cree, Gary Lewis, and Richard Rankin went to the movies together in Glasgow. This fan ran into them and was able to get some photos.

They were all headed to see an early Gary Lewis, Douglas Henshall film: Orphans. (Richard’s beardless state is causing quite a stir among fans!) 

Here’s a short clip…

 

The making of Season 4 continues to plug along… Outlander auditions were held in Ontario, Canada this past weekend. Authenticity is always a priority for Outlander (which is one of the things we love), and in that vein, production is looking for around 120 First Nations background actors. The producers will fly the actors to Scotland for up to four weeks of filming this summer. The number of applicants were so great, that auditions were closed early.

Sam heads back to Glasgow today. I hope he has some sleeping scenes to do when he gets back!

    • I agree – makes him look like he’s auditioning for “Grease”! But I doubt he had much to do with the styling.

    • I like how his hair is in the picture of him taking a run. Much simpler, natural, and more adult. Love seeing him in a T-shirt but a tux is nice too.

    • Totally agree. Looks like the same stylist that he had for GG preparty. Just awful. Only Sam can still look good and carry it off but please Sam, dump that hairstyle.

    • it’s not the hair style that makes him look young, it is the fact he has shaved his stubble off . He has always worn his hair short outside of outlander . 😉😉😉

      • If they are in the midst of filming Season 4, how can Sam have his hair so short when Jamie’s hair is much longer and curly/wavy???

  1. Courtney, thanks once again for bringing us some great Outlander BTS. Love reading these Outlander tidbits, we need them during DROUGHTLANDER!

  2. Thank you, Courtney. Great to get Outlander info. Mackenzie is a beautiful girl and is a wonderful singer, was really good in the TV show Forever, it’s hard for me to understand why she doesn’t seem to have any work lined up. Always great to see Sam, even if it is for just one day in the sunshine. Caitriona calls him “the energy bunny” and she’s not wrong.

    • You’re welcome Karen!

      MacKenzie is an amazing singer! I haven’t seen any of her film work before. And I’m not sure she _doesn’t_have work lined up, you never know.

      I told my husband about Sam’s travel schedule, and he said, “how old is he again?” I said, “he’ll be 39 next month.” And he said “Oh, he’s gonna start feeling it soon.” They are two peas in a pod, my hub is 10 years older, and the original Energy bunny!

      Yes, great to see the cast during our Drought!

  3. Lovely coverage, as usual, but particularly appreciated as I’ve not had much time to check all the SM venues lately. Great to have BTS to come to for ‘one stop shopping’ for my Sam fix! x

  4. So glad to hear they carved out a budget to cast actual First Nations/ Native American actors!! Let’s hope the script writers and dialect coaches do justice to the research Diana did to try and give an accurate accounting of the various tribes the Frasers encountered in the books!

  5. Sam…U forgot to shave 4 the OSCARS AND YOU DO LOOK SO HANDSOME. aRE U IN CONTACT W/tOBIS OR dUNCAN…ups..csp lock was on..forgive me. best always kdp

  6. Dracu Atrakcyjność kraju i piękno kobiet staje się obrzydliwe, kiedy głupota i szalona innowacyjność kulturowa bierze górę nad rozsądkiem, a nawet go zabija. Nie powinno nam być ich szkoda, skoro nie mają szacunku do samych siebie i swych wartości. Szwedzi przekreślając zobowiązanie do dbania o własną tożsamość przestali być narodem. Teraz są tworem, który zżera sam siebie i twierdzi, że właśnie tak wygląda rozwój. Wydaje się to niedorzeczne, ale jest prawdziwe i wątpię by dało się to zmienić. customer essay

  7. I think Sam is starting to be drawn into tinsel town. He should have a say in how the stylists style him. The hair is terrible, and the lipstick is so obvious but he looked so tired I doubt he noticed what they were doing. He still have seasons of Outlander to work on. He is looking desperate, there are so many talented male actors of his age looking for work. I hope he remembers how it was before Outlander came along. Perhaps he should take his godfathers advise He needs a women not a lass.
