Transcriptions to roundtable interviews provided by Outlander TV News. (Our questions are included below.)

Sam Heughan

1. Your character begins Season 2 in a very different place than he begins Season 1. What were the benefits and/or challenges of this?
2. How do you play a damaged character without playing a victim?

Caitriona Balfe

1. Claire had a relatively unstructured upbringing. How does she handle the etiquette and restrictions of the French court/society?

Diana Gabaldon

1. As we wait for Brianna and Roger to be cast, what are some of their characteristics, from the novels, that you look forward to seeing adapted [translated] to screen?
2. Have you had to change the way you interact with fans with the growth of social media?

Ron D. Moore

1. With so much of Jacobite history being intertwined with religion, was it a conscious decision to downplay Jamie’s faith versus Claire’s nominal Catholicism and the deep devotion of the Scottish people?
2. The two halves of Season 1 were different in tone: the key art reflected the lighter, more glowing blue of the first half, while the second half was much darker. Have you settled upon the look/tone for Season 2?

Another #PodTrip–this time to the land of Con

As we complete our packing and last-minute lists, we are excited beyond–well, just plain excited!–to once again be making our way to San Diego for Comic Con. This will be Summer’s first time at SDCC, but this is by no means old hat for Ginger.

We have a few fun things scheduled, and hope to share lots of pictures with you along the way! We’ll be hanging out with Sarah from Outlander TV News, who will be doing a fantabulous job covering all she’ll be covering, which, of course, includes Outlander!

Both Outlander TV News and The Outlander Podcast will be live tweeting Saturday’s Outlander panel. So be sure to follow both sites on our various platforms. Likely Twitter and Instagram will be the most post-tweet-picture-whatever happy, since we may not quite get around to blogging in depth until after we return and can properly synthesize all that we see, hear, and experience.
