Sam Heughan took a break from filming season five of Outlander, which will be based on author Diana Gabaldon’s The Fiery Cross novel, in Scotland to attend Starz’s FYC event in Century City, Calif. on Sunday.

Before the panel, which was comprised of Heughan (Jamie), Caitriona Balfe (Claire), Sophie Skelton (Brianna), Richard Rankin (Roger), executive producer Maril Davis, executive producer/writer Toni Graphia and production designer Jon Gary Steele, spoke to Heughan about season five, love, and his upcoming film opposite Vin Diesel.

What one thing can you tease about Jamie in season five? When we left him at the end of season four, he had been tasked to form a militia and go after Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix).

I can’t give away too much, obviously, but as we saw in season four, Jamie’s on the side of the Redcoats. He’s made this deal with the Redcoats, the British Army, so he’s actually on the opposite side of the side where his allegiance really is and his loyalty lies, but he knows he needs to do it. He needs to do it for his family and for his tenants. He has to secure this land and make it a safe place for them, so he goes in league with the British. For Jamie, that’s a pretty hard thing to do.

He also has foreknowledge of what’s to come because Claire is from the future. So, don’t you think he can make better plans than he could before?

In Outlander, Jamie and Claire are always trying to fight: fight time and fight fate. Certainly, we saw that in regards to Culloden and we know that the battle they’re facing now is really a huge one, the War of Independence. He knows which side he needs to be on and, unfortunately, at the moment, he’s on the wrong side, but he knows that. Claire knows that. They’re just trying to turn the situation to their advantage, but playing with fate is never that successful.

HE is the star of the show that has boosted Scottish tourism to new heights – and now Sam Heughan is about to be honoured in his own backyard.

The Outlander actor will receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow in recognition of his artistic success and charitable work.

It’s entirely appropriate that Heughan will receive his honour at the university’s Dumfries campus on July 3 as he was born in Balmaclellan in Dumfries and Galloway.

Also being honoured are Alice Thompson, co-founder of social enterprise cafe chain Social Bite; TV presenter Fiona Armstrong; and Lady MacGregor, the Lord Lieutenant of Dumfries.

Honorary doctorates will also be awarded to Sir Peter Lampl, chairman of the Sutton Trust; David Mayer de Rothschild, a British adventurer, ecologist, environmentalist and head of the charity Sculpt the Future Foundation; and Andrew Walls, convener of the Crichton Foundation.

The university said the work of those being honoured reflects the core interests of its School of Interdisciplinary Studies at Dumfries. The head of the school, Professor Carol Hill, said: “This campus has grown in influence and impact since it was opened 20 years ago in September 1999 to serve the higher education needs of Dumfries and Galloway. In this our 20th anniversary year of celebrations, we at Dumfries are delighted to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our honorary graduates, representing a range of talents, careers and charitable interests.”

Heughan graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama – now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland – in 2003.

He is best known for his role as Jamie Fraser in the TV drama Outlander. In 2015 he established his own charitable foundation My Peak Challenge. [Source]

Outlander opted for an unexpected cliffhanger to close out its fourth season, setting up Jamie (Sam Heughan) for a major internal conflict come Season 5. In the episode’s final moments, Jamie receives an order from Governor Tryon to find and execute his beloved godfather, Murtagh, for his involvement with the rebellious Regulators.

It’s a jarring close to a season that metamorphic for the show. What began with Jamie and Claire’s dream to establish a quiet homestead in a remote section of North Carolina soon devolved into mayhem: Jamie’s unexpected reunion with Murtagh turned deadly when he realized his godfather’s political activities directly challenged Jamie’s relationship with Tryon. Then, Brianna’s arrival from the future brought news of Jamie and Claire’s impending deaths, as well as a very fresh, very painful trauma (and a missing fiancé), into the tumult of Jamie and Claire’s lives.

The Season 4 finale allowed a short moment of peace Outlander’s core characters before swiftly shattering it with Tryon’s letter, setting up significant complications for the growing Fraser family in Season 5. Heughan sat down with for a quick recap of Season 4’s conflicts and resolutions, and what to expect as the specter of the American Revolution draws closer.

Harper’s BAZAAR: In Season 4, Jamie and Claire witness a lot of painful moments in American history that Claire is already very familiar with: slavery, the treatment of indigenous peoples, the impending Revolution. How do you play a character who’s learning the truth about these historical ramifications in real time?

Sam Heughan: It’s the thing that happened in the earlier seasons when he first met Claire. She proved to him with Culloden and all that history, but this is on an even bigger scale. He totally believes her—there’s not even a question. She’s been right so many times. They’ve tried to change history before and have they been successful? Not so much. They’re very aware this season [about] what’s coming. It’s on the horizon, the Revolutionary War is there. You can sort of feel it—the thunderclouds are there. It’s setting it up.
