Television Academy: From Scotland to Paris (New Photos)

The Television Academy held an Outlander event on April 5, 2016 and provided a live stream.

The panelists included:

  • Ronald D. Moore, Showrunner, Writer and Executive Producer
  • Maril Davis, Executive Producer
  • Terry Dresbach, Costume Designer
  • Jon Gary Steele, Production Designer
  • Bear McCreary, Composer
  • Caitriona Balfe, Claire Randall Fraser
  • Sam Heughan, Jamie Fraser
  • Tobias Menzies, Frank Randall/Jack Randall

CBS news correspondent Michelle Miller moderated the discussion.

She was one the best moderators with this cast that we have seen. She knew the material, story line, characters and used that to inform her questions.


For the first time, for us, the panel provided details regarding the costumes and set design to the point of how they thought about the work ahead for Season 2, what they used for inspiration and even provided pictures of what we are in for in this ‘new world’. The theme of the panel discussion about Season 2 revolved around telling an authentic story though the writing, music, costumes and set design. Every aspect of production will reflect the mood and emotional shift from Scotland to Paris.

We tried to capture as many photos as possible. Enjoy!

Although these are screen shots from the live stream, you can use them, but please do not take our watermark off.

Terry explained the transformation the characters costumes had to undergo  . . . .

from the Scottish Highlands  . . .

. . . to aristocratic 18th century France, and the need for authenticity for all the characters, male and females.

This meant more vibrant colors and meticulous details from the embroidery and ribbons down to the buttons.

Gotta love Terry’s motto, Go big or go home!

Her costume design team included young people, who had never worked on a production such as this before. We are truly amazed at the care and effort that went into making all of these costumes from scratch. We appreciate them showing the interworkings, behind the scene, in order to truly appreciate the outcome and what we will see in just a few days!

She also provided details as to her thought process for creating the costumes for the new season. With Claire being a modern, strong, independent woman from the 1940s, that was the era that inspired her work.
