Outlander Inside Epi8 – The Fox’s Lair

It is always interesting to go behind the scenes of an episode – absolutely exquisite. Just goes to show one the thought, hard work, energy and effort put into bringing the show to life, and we truly appreciate it.

Here is Inside Epi 8: The Fox’s Lair ~ via Starz, Jon Gary Steele and Terry Dresbach.

Enjoy!


LALLYBROCH’S DINING ROOM TAPESTRIES

The images for the wall tapestries in Lallybroch’s dining room were sourced from a library of images cleared for use by the Art Department. They were combined and adjusted to fit the space, then printed in large format.

DETAILED SPOTLIGHT: LALLYBROCH’S BANISTER

The newel post caps used for the banister were cast from one found at an antiques reclamation yard. It was then adapted by draughts people in the Art Department to work with the Parlor’s stairs.

BEAUFORT CASTLE’S EXTERIOR

Beaufort Castle is the seat of Lord Lovat, the leader of the Frasers of Lovat. The exterior for Beaufort Castle was filmed at Dean Castle in East Ayrshire, Scotland.

FROM LALLYBROCH’S PARLOR TO BEAUFORT CASTLE’S GREAT HALL

The set for Lallybroch’s Parlor was altered and re-dressed to become the Great Hall at Beaufort Castle. Most noticeably, the grand fireplace and staircase were removed from the center of the room. New panels were created for the columns and images of a painted ceiling from a church in Perthshire were sourced to create new wall coverings. Brendan Hessle, our graphic artist, stitched together the images and adjusted the color to Gary’s specification. Antlers were added to the ceiling beams.

JAMIE’S COSTUME DESIGN

We had to make an entirely new coat and waistcoat for Jamie, but we knew we wanted it to be very similar to his hero costume in Season 1. We were going back to Scotland and just love this look. It was a bit of a celebration, really. It is so very Jamie, but with a bit of added authority. He is a commander now. Very dashing! The best part is that we were so tired from Paris that when we realized we needed this costume at the very last minute, everyone flew to get it done. I think it was a very joyous task as we were all ready to leave Paris.

CLAIRE’S COSTUME DESIGN

Claire is in full repeats.  There was really no reason for her to have anything new. She just goes back to Lallybroch and opens the trunks. The fashion show of Paris is in the past. This costume should be very familiar to viewers. The only thing that was new was this arisaid. It will be familiar to viewers as the same tartan that Rupert wore. We were trying to figure out how to keep Caitriona warm and I thought, “We need something like a kilt!” The minute the words entered into my brain, it seemed so incredibly silly to have not seen it staring at me so obviously. Women of Scotland wore kilts, and they were called arisaids. Women needed the same kind of protection as the men did from the elements. Caitriona loved it; she wears it very fiercely!!
