THE Scots actor, who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit Starz series, was named alongside celebs Brad Pitt, Idris Elba and Jeff Goldblum on the list.

SAM Heughan has won countless awards for his stunning performances in Outlander – but now its his wardrobe that’s gaining recognition.

The Scots actor, who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit Starz series, has been named among GQ’s 10 Best Dressed Men of the Week.

The 36-year-old was chosen for his dapper leather jacket and jeans combination, which he sported at the premiere for Star Trek: Beyond.

Sam is in the company of some of the entertainment world’s biggest stars, with Brad Pitt, David Gandy, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum and Chris Pine just a few of the names included on the list.

The hunky star was recently chosen as Barbour’s first Global Brand Ambassador, signing a 2-year deal with the luxury fashion designer.

Sam, who grew up in Galloway and just a short distance from the farm where founder John Barbour lived in the 1800s, said: “Being Scottish, I grew up with the brand and have always been a big fan.

“I have a great passion for the company and their employees that feels more like I’ve been welcomed into their extended family. I very much look forward to designing my own capsule collection based on this ethos and to representing the brand in the UK, the US and internationally.”

Last year, Sam was also named in the Top 10 Sexiest Men Alive by People Magazine. [Source]




Fans are one step closer to the end of droughtlander as it has been revealed that “Outlander” will begin filming for its third season next month. Star Sam Heughan took to his Twitter handle to share the news via a Q&A session with his fans.

While waiting for a delayed flight, Heughan decided to answer a few questions from his fans. One of them asked when season 3 would start shooting, to which Heughan responded, “next month.”

Season 3!!!! @Outlander_STARZ shooting next month!

The Scottish actor also revealed that above all else, he is most excited about filming the reunion scene between his character, Jamie, and his love interest, Claire (Caitriona Balfe).

The reunion… @caitrionambalfe

Additionally, he admitted that he is looking forward to meeting John Grey after one fan asked him which character in “Voyager” was his favorite.

It was previously reported that Lord John Grey, who previously appeared as a young boy, would be fully grown by season 3 because of the 20-year time jump. And although the character has his own spin-off novel franchise, the third season of “Outlander” will only take from “Voyager.”

What else can fans expect from season 3? An older Jamie, for one thing. Season 2 saw an older version of Claire. And given the setting and time of season 3, it is likely that Heughan will also be donning an older look.

In an interview with Vulture, Heughan revealed that the third season is “going to be a completely different show.” How different? “Next year’s stuff is probably the most interesting, in a way. We’ve been setting it up, setting the stage, introducing these characters, and now it goes into new, different worlds,” he continued.

Season 3 is expected to depict the Battle of Culloden, which means there might be one beloved character fans have to say goodbye to — Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix). As avid fans know, Murtagh perished during the battle.

The first season of the Starz historical romance epic “Outlander,” based on the novels by Diana Gabaldon, saw heroine Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) travel back 200 years to the 1740s where she soon fell in love with the equally heroic Scot Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). She also found a nemesis in the odious Black Jack Randall, a captain in the occupying British army and the ancestor of Claire’s 1940s husband, Frank (both played by Tobias Menzies). That season ended with Jack brutalizing Jamie before Claire saved him from capture; the couple then escaped to France. This season finds the lovers infiltrating the French court, plotting to save their Scottish way of life.

Gathered in a Hollywood hotel penthouse for a photo shoot and an interview with The Envelope, the three actors briefly pose as Charlie’s Angels. They each have legions of fans: Caitriots, Heughanots and Menziatics. When asked whose group is the fiercest, Balfe and Menzies simply point at Heughan.

Men, how does it feel to be objectified?

Menzies: It’s a curiosity of the show that that role is reversed.

Balfe [pointing to her body]: Nobody’s interested in this. They’re like, “Put your clothes back on, love. But you!” [Pointing to the men]

Menzies: But it’s Jamie more than Jack or Frank.

Balfe: There’s Team Frank. There’s also team Jack, which is — let’s not talk about those ladies.

Heughan: I don’t really pay any attention to it. Are we objectified?

Balfe: I sometimes get indignant on your behalf. The way that the women speak about Sam sometimes, if a guy was ever saying those things about an actress, there would be an uproar. I always want his acting prowess and his talent to be front and center. Read the rest of this entry »
