Ron Moore A Spontaneous Twitter Q and A

Tonight Ronald D. Moore, the Outlander TV series creator, showrunner, and executive producer popped in on Twitter for a spontaneous Q and A with fans.

Some questions were not related to Outlander, so I transcribed the tweets I thought you’d want to read.

  • @JayneStevensLMT: Which scene are you most looking forward to for Season 3? RDM: The ship scenes.
  • @par995: Are you serious about recasting Jamie and Claire? RDM: Uh……………no
  • @phillyoutlander: Will you be doing all your filming for season 3 & 4 in Scotland? RDM: probably not but haven’t locked in locations for sea voyage and Caribbean.
  • @honeypotfraser: Any chance of going to South Africa to use Black Sails ships? RDM: It’s under discussion.
  • @smeghead30: Can Murtagh’s speech please please be included in deleted scenes in the DVD? RMD: I think it will.
  • @chattysassenach: Will NC be filmed in Scotland or England? RMD: Don’t know yet.
  • @jennmabney: Are season 3 & 4 going to be filmed concurrently or consecutively? RDM: There will be a break in between.
  • @mollymay410: Do u think Voyager will be as difficult to adapt as Dragonfly? The same? Easier? RDM: It’s already proving much easier.
  • @shaliepa: Do you see the future of Outlander that you may go beyond the story in the books? As if making changes?     RDM: The changes we make obligate us to follow them up in the show as we go forward but try to keep to books.
  • @sassenachSJ: How many times do you watch each episode? RDM: Really hard to say. Maybe a dozen? Also lots of watching individual scenes an sequences without going through whole show.
  • @fringefreedom: What was your favorite episode of Outlander this season? RDM: 207- Faith and 213 Dragonfly in Amber.
  • @abigibs: Favourite scene in season 2? RDM: Star Chamber.
  • @kgirldc: How many episodes for S3 & S4? RDM: The plan is 13 per season but always subject to change.
  • @jill_milander: Will we get a blooper reel for S2? If so, who flubs lines the most? RDM: I think so but there aren’t that many flubs to be honest.
  • @cecimartin: What has been the biggest obstacle to overcome during S2? RDM: The adaptation was tough because it was a more complicated book.
  • @gsojudy: Will you film in the US at some point? RDM: Don’t know.
  • @pjglaser: When do you start shooting season 3? RDM: Early fall/late summer.

There you have it. The Season 3 and 4 locations are not settled yet. The adaptation is easier this go round. He’s looking forward to the ship scenes. I know, I know, we are looking forward to the bookstore scene… And there’s little rest if Season 3 filming is to start in a couple of months for the cast and crew.

A big thank you to Ron Moore for giving a little dish to the fans.

In Case You Missed It. Outlander News.

This week there were several Outlander related articles and announcements. Below are those I found particularly important to share with you.

  1. The Outlander TV Series has been renewed for Seasons 3 and 4. It’s an unprecedented move by a network to offer such a guarantee.  Series producer and writer, Matt Roberts told Hollywood Reporter they were already working on Season 3 when the formal announcement came in. Book fans are cheering as we are excitedly looking forward to the most loved of all the books in the series, Voyager being adapted for our viewing pleasure, along with Drums of Autumn on its heels. From what I have seen around social media this week, the seasons are likely to be 13 episodes each for the welfare of the cast and crew. And after blowing up Twitter earlier this week with an innocent message to Matt Roberts, it seems that he will be writing the episode with the most favorite scene from Voyager. That is seriously fantastic news for fans. He’s going to rock that episode.

     

  2. The Artistry of Outlander Exhibit will be on display at the Paley Center in Los Angeles from June 8-August 14, 2016.  If you live in or near LA, this is a must do activity. You need to go see the costumes by Terry Dresbach and set design pieces by Jon Gary Steele. They have done the most amazing and authentic job handling the multitudes of period based nuances. Admission is free to the public.
  3. The season finale S2 E13 airing on 9, July 2016, will be 90 minutes instead of the usual 60 minutes. The premise for the finale ties into the season opener. The episode is titled Dragonfly in Amber. Here is the official description from the linked article: Flashing forward ahead to 1968, Claire travels to Scotland with her twenty-year-old daughter, Brianna, and meets Roger Wakefield (remember wee Roger Reverend Wakefield’s adopted son?). Claire visits Lallybroch and Culloden Moor to make peace with the past, while Brianna and Roger bond over researching Randall family history. Claire finally reveals the truth to Brianna about her time travel through the stones, her life in 1700’s Scotland, and Brianna’s true parentage. The story is intercut with another one back in the 18th century, which happens on the day of the Battle of Culloden. When Jamie’s last ditch attempts to deter The Prince fail, he and Claire come up with a dangerous plan – which Dougal overhears, inciting him to a murderous rage. Jamie must do everything he can to save the ones he loves, even if it means saying goodbye to some — or all — of them.

I am absolutely thrilled with every announcement.  To think, it all started with a book…

Tobias Menzies Spills Outlander “Secrets” with Elle.com

In Elle.com’s latest video interview installment, Tobias Menzies spills Outlander “secrets”. The versatile actor reprises his dual role as Frank Randall and Captain Randall in the second season of the Starz original programming.

For the record, he explains he has no idea how a fetus would handle time travel. It’s a bit baffling the business of it all.

Of course for a man of history and research it’s a difficult truth to take in. How could he not believe Claire though in the end? 

More of finding out your long lost wife is carrying another man’s child. Yes, that’s a harsh reality for any man to take in. 

No. That about sums up his answer. You need difficulties to create good viewing or it would be boring.


These are short and sweet interviews. Not a whole lot of secrets, yet fun nonetheless.
