It’s Memorial Day in the US, the day we commemorate and express appreciation for the millions who’ve served, and given their lives, from colonial times to present day, for our country. Thank you to all who have fought for the freedom and independence of the US. May we honor you, as we continue to shape our country.
In honor of today, I am publishing my interview with the renowned redcoat leader from the colonial period, one Governor William Tryon. (Well, the guy who plays him!).
What a pleasure it was to spend a chunk of time recently with Tim Downie, whom I have known on Twitter now, for years. A friend of Mr. Heughan, Tim joined into the Twitter banter with Outlander fans back in 2013, winning our hearts, and then eventually winning a role on Outlander, in Season 4, as the not-so-popular Governor William Tryon. We talk about his casting story, the development of his character, stories from set, his own history, Tryon’s relationship with Jamie, and Claire, possible deleted scenes, his many pursuits outside of Outlander, his friendship with Sam, and more.
Two points of clarification: in the UK,
hiring = renting, and
UK public school = US private school, and UK private school = US public school.
Please have a wonderful Memorial Day, and consider telling someone who served or serves, “thank you,” it means a lot to them.
Enjoy my recent chat with Tim Downie…
There are a couple of updates since our chat…
- Governor Tryon is definitely back for Season 5, stirring up trouble in the Piedmont.
