Outlander: Richard Rankin Weighs in on Roger’s Role in Providence

Roger MacKenzie has covered a lot of ground on this season on Outlander. He’s traveled through the stones and across an ocean in search of Brianna.

Outlander – Closer Look: Murtagh’s Wanted Poster Epi11

BEST GODFATHER E-V-A-H! Murtagh’s ‘wanted’ poster is based on proclamation broadsides from the eighteenth century. In reality, these types of proclamation probably wouldn’t have depicted images of the accused during our period, but to make sure the audience knew Murtagh was the ‘wanted’ man in question, the Art Department added an image of his face. His face is drawn in the style of an eighteenth-century … Continue reading Outlander – Closer Look: Murtagh’s Wanted Poster Epi11

Outlander – Closer Look: Brianna’s Drawings Epi11

Kimberley Bright from the Art Department spent time developing Brianna’s drawing style, wanting her artwork to subtly evoke seventies style but, at the same time, not seem too incongruous in the eighteenth century.

The most anguished drawing features in Episode … Continue reading Outlander – Closer Look: Brianna’s Drawings Epi11

Outlander – Closer Look: Roger’s Hair and Make-up Epi 10

The journey was scheduled in story order so we had the luxury of allowing Richard’s own beard to grow naturally—his beard grows quickly so it was effective. A wig was used to lengthen his hair, and in the later stages, weft was added to lengthen the wig. Bruising, weather beating, and broken bones were a mixture of make-up and physical acting for Richard. When he … Continue reading Outlander – Closer Look: Roger’s Hair and Make-up Epi 10
