Continuing our coverage of the past weekend’s Thru the Stones convention –
Both Diana Gabaldon and Graham McTavish were guests of honor at last weekend’s Thru the Stones conference in Davenport, IA. Both spoke to the group, and then answered questions that attendees had pre-submitted. Here, Graham talks about the most important invention; his journey to be part of the Outlander cast; and his path to being an actor.
I apologize for not having Diana’s presentation, but here is the Q&A that both Graham and Diana participated in.
Following the presentations, both Diana and Graham very graciously signed items presented by the attendees and posed for pictures. Graham hugged almost every woman there, and took a minute to say hello to everyone!
A personal fun story – before Graham went up to speak, my friend and trivia contest teammate Alyson said that someone should get that man a glass of whisky – so we did! He looked very surprised and pleased when Alyson handed it to him. Following the Q&A, the moderator asked him if he had anything final to say, and he said “thank you to the fans who brought me the whisky!” Then Diana was asked the same question, and she said, “I’d like to ask why someone hasn’t brought me a glass of whisky!” So, of course, what else do you do – Koko Pipkin (Outmander.com) and I ran for the bar. Here are the two of them with their glasses!
Watch for my exclusive interview with Diana!
