Outlander: Sam Heughan Closes the Social Distance with Twitter Q&A

Just what we needed right now – Sam Heughan chatted with fans on Twitter before tonight’s episode! (see a Monday morning addition at the end!) Here’s the entire Q&A:

Q where are you spending the confinement? And where would you like to spend it?

A Thanks for asking, I’m in Hawaii. Came here before travel ban. Rather concerned to return to UK. Certainly safer here for now. Hope you’re safe and your family too!x

A I believe you may have enjoyed this a little too much…!?


Q How long did it take for you to practice the Highland Fling?
A The wonderful @ginger_jasper taught me in two sessions… she’s very talented. It’s harder than it looks, especially if @caitrionambalfe is watching!

Q Hope you and your beloved ones are all safe and healthy! You guys at Outlander never explained about the shadow outside Claire’s window at season one episode one. I ‘m sure it was Jamie. But how he was there?
A You’ll have to keep watching and hope @Writer_DG reveals all….

Q What is the workout you loathe the most? There has to be at least one, right? Mine are burpees. But I still do them. And I don’t die.
A Have you been trying the @MyPeakChallenge? I did today. Finished on burpees… they SUCK! Thanks Valbo!

Q what has been your best coping mechanism during social distancing?
A 90 Day Fiancé has been a guilty pleasure…. and 7 Days Out. Great docus

Q My husband and I were set to leave for Scotland on April 10 to see your beautiful homeland. For obvious reasons, the trip is postponed. Tho, I will be sampling your whisky when it arrives! How are sales of The Sassenach going so far? Is it everything you thought it would be?
A I hope you enjoy it. We revelry won some top awards. I’m so proud. I put so much work into it. It’s a part of my heart.

Q Sam, who taught you how to cook?
A My mum. She was a great cook. Always organic and healthy. I spoke to her today. It’s Mother’s Day. I can’t go home and see her as she’s older and could be dangerous. However she’s happy and staying healthy. And still cooking!x

Q You said that you and Caitríona received your producer credits later in the season so your influence isn’t evident until later. Since we’re halfway through, I’m wondering what episode you both started having that influence
