Sam Heughan promised his fans that he would do a Twitter Q&A when he hit 300,000 followers, and he made good today! He’s been seen in North Carolina recently, and said that he was waiting for his plane. So he took some time, and in his normally cheeky manner, answered lots of questions (and I’m sure made one follower faint!).
