‘Outlander’: Sam Heughan Teases Jamie and Claire’s ‘Passionate, Emotional’ Reunion
Sam Heughan is hard man to get a season spoiler out of. When TV Insider caught up with the Outlander star at the launch of his first capsule collection with Barbour at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City, he was hesitant to reveal too much about the reunion between our two favorite time-traveling lovers.
“It’s nice to be finally reunited,” Heughan told TV Insider. I hope people are happy with the reunion [for Jamie and Claire]. I watched it the other night, I haven’t seen it, so I watched it and it’s passionate, emotional and I think everything fans would want.”
Heughan did admit that although Jamie doesn’t meet his daughter Brianna this season, Claire talks about her often. He explained, “[Jamie’s] just overwhelmed. He does get to hear about his daughter Brianna and that‘s very emotional for him. So I imagine meeting her would be very powerful.”
So what lead to Heughan’s fashion collaboration with U.K. brand Barbour? “It’s been a part of my life growing up. We sat down in South Shields, in the factory there, and saw their archive of collections and spoke to all the designers about the process of making their clothing and the design behind it. All of it is a representation of what I like and my Scottish heritage as well.”
We asked Heughan to guess which pieces his Outlander character and his on-screen soulmate Claire (Caitriona Balfe) would like. “A high-collar knitwear piece for Claire, because they’re very cozy and for Jamie something with a tartan detail,” Heughan said.
