53 Things You Never Knew About the Making of ‘Outlander’

Well, ‘never knew’ is a strong phrase for the Outlander CLANdom!!

Sorry Yahoo – Men’s Health, most Outlander fans already know the majority, if not all, of this. However, since some may not, I wanted to post it.

Admittedly, I did learn one thing new . . . that Caitriona and Tobias wrote love letters to each other in character. ~ V


Everything from the epic costumes to the (more epic) sex scenes.

1. While shooting season four, Sam Heughan decided to run two marathons in four weeks.

The leading man told Us Weekly beat his personal best both times by one minute in case you were wondering.

2. Heughan was once a stable boy, well kinda.

“I used to live in sort-of converted stables on the grounds of a castle, and I spent a lot of my childhood running around with a pretend sword pretending to be Robert the Bruce,” he told EW in 2014.

3. Author Diana Gabaldon didn’t ever plan to publish “Outlander.”

“I knew I was supposed to be a novelist, but I didn’t know how, and I decided the way to learn was to actually write a novel. So, Outlander was my practice book,” she said at the TCA press day for the PBS series The Great American Read. “I was never going to show it to anyone, so it didn’t matter what I did with it.”

4. Filming for season four took place in Scotland, not North Carolina.

As fans know, season four was about the couple settling down with their family in North Carolina. Instead of filming in the state, they created and found sets in Scotland that resembled the landscape of North America and North Carolina.

5. In real life, Caitriona Balfe is actually Irish, too.

The actress grew up in the small village of Tydavnet with her six other siblings before moving to Paris at 19 to become a model.
