Outlander Special: Star Sam Heughan at Jamie's Redcoat Turn

It was mentioned in Outlander’s season five trailer – and now Vanity Fair has two exclusive full-length looks at Jamie Fraser wearing a red shirt and green shirt from his longtime rival: England. What would make Fraser wear the clothes he hated? Well, the answer may be a bit of a spoiler. But series stars Sam Heughan Received a phone call with Vanity Fair ahead of Sunday night’s fight, “The Ballad of Roger Mac,” to discuss a fashion choice that sent a shocking blow to the mood. fan book in Outlander.

The footage is bound to be at least two-most-talked-about pictures of Heughan hitting the internet this week. (Or did you miss out on a self-post-workout that started hundreds of thousands of likes?) “You think this time is bad,” Heughan told Vanity Fair on his quest to go outside. . “You want to be successful and sometimes like: Is everything I do? But I guess it is important for people to reflect and find some direction and vision. “

Outlander has always been a show-winner for the run, for fans of the time-traveling adventure and quarrel between Claire and Jamie Fraser. But Heughan also liked the idea of ​​pushing both character and character into new heights. That is how he found himself in a big meeting with the executive producer and actor Matthew Roberts beyond question of coat. A plot in the fourth season pushed U.S. Rep. Jamie Fraser to pledge payment to British Prime Minister Tryon (Tim Downie) in exchange for 10,000 acres. Those debts are about to come – and, despite the fact that history is not currently available, Heughan thinks there is no better way to send that kind of debt than to give Jamie the clothes he needs. enemies.

“He was dealing with a demon,” Heughan said. “I pushed it. I want to see Jamie in the coat, because he is a symbol of all that he has been up against – from Culloden, England to the Scots, to the persecution of all their culture, and to Black. Jack Randall and Ardsmuir in prison. It just represents everything that Jamie was up against. “

Heughan went on, and was intrigued by that second choice as he tried on new clothes: “I have a tendency to get out of it – really. It just seems wrong. He had an outburst. But as disgusting as both Heughan and Jamie may have been from the vision of the coat, the actor felt that the inner turmoil stood out from the mess. as with Fraser’s external implications. “I want Jamie to look good in it – strong.”

The structure of the coat itself forced Heughan – and, by extension, Fraser – to adapt to the character. Shoulder straps and tight patterns have the wearer and limits his style to fit the belt Jamie has found himself. The actor has grown accustomed to the freedom and fluidity of the movement he loves while wearing Jamie’s usual battle of choice: a line.

That’s certainly what the book-readers might have thought Jamie would wear this season. They show shock and the alarm on the face of him dressed in red in season five trailer. Heughan himself was a little surprised to see a shot of that season’s season: “I think it’s a minor distraction! But it gets people talking, which is fine. People are like: ‘Oh my God, what are you doing? He will never wear a red shirt! ‘Sometimes I think fans forget that we’re trying to upset them and upset them, because that’s what we’re doing here: play with them, seduce them, motivate them. “

However, Heughan said the horror movie will pay off, big time, this Sunday, which is the end of a story Heughan has called his favorite since the season.
