Outlander Inside S2 Epi5

If you haven’t checked out the Outlander Community Website, you should. Starz opens up and shares an inside look into the episodes. We decided to share some of what they provide.

Enjoy!


JAMIE AND CLAIRE’S PARIS APARTMENT

We started working on Paris at the end of Season 1 and we were fortunate to be able to go on a location scout to France in September 2014. We visited the Louvre and Versailles to research palaces, but the main inspiration for the Paris apartment came from the Carnavalet Museum—a museum set in an old mansion which features design and interior decor from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries.

WEALTH ON DISPLAY

In a time where people flaunted their wealth, Jamie’s uncle is no exception. We used decorated damasks and velvets in the wall panels and gilded furnishings suitable to entertain the aristocratic society that Jamie and Claire are now in. The furnishings are a mixture of choice antiques from Paris and London, theatrical hirers, and good replica furniture which we had our scenic prop painters and upholsters transform.

PROP SPOTLIGHT: THE APOSTLE SPOONS

Ron said he wanted Jamie to give Claire a christening gift. I was supervising production of the episode in Scotland, so I started working with the prop department to see what we could find that would be a traditional Gaelic christening gift for the 18th century. Dani Berrow, our historian, also came to me with options—some better known today like a gown or bonnet—but there were various other artifacts as well, including a set of Apostle spoons. The spoons were interesting and unique, so I chose to use them for a few different reasons. St. Andrew is of course one of the Apostles and also the patron Saint of Scotland, so I liked that connection.

Gina showed me a photo of a replica 17th century set she found online and they were perfect. I then added a dialogue exchange to the script, where Jamie says he plans to have a child for each spoon and Claire is shocked to learn that he wants to have 12 children! It was a cute and funny moment between our ever evolving couple. We thought the spoons would be tiny, like traditional silver baby spoons, but they arrived and they were huge! Like giant soup spoons! We had a good laugh, but at least it allows them to show up on camera well.
