Outlander has the ability to make you feel as though the world around you has been forever changed. It is this visceral attachment to this fictional world, the transformative insights we can draw from the passages we have read, and the superb manner in which the content has been visually adapted to the screen that enables the audience to wholeheartedly invest in the story and all that surrounds it.
For many of us, we show our devotion by following fandoms and reading as much as we can gather about the production of the series. However, for others, Outlander has been the catalyst for creativity and design. As we look at the wealth of talent that is within our marvelous fandom, it is always special to meet and discover the artists among us. We have found, on many occasions, that we are taken back by the level of innovation and craftsmanship these individuals bring forward as they express their admiration for this series. If you have a curious mind like us, it is only natural to want to follow their journey to discover what Outlander means to them.

Scott Kyle – a man of many talents: actor, artistic director, venue manager, commercial producer, teacher. He has played roles in several movies, has organized special events and works with today’s youth in order to build their artistic future. He is so much more than we had imagined!
Scott became known to the Outlander world as Ross Owen, Lallybroch’s blacksmith in Season Two, Dragonfly in Amber. He has taken time to converse with us, Timeless Sass3nach Journeys.

In this role, it is his character’s stirring interaction with Kincaid, played by Scottish actor Gregor Firth that drew our attention to Scott. In the episode they made a pact: if one met his demise, the other would care for his wife and children. It was a touching scene, but we don’t want to give away more. Due to his wonderful depiction of the blacksmith highlander, Scott’s fanbase began to grow. We also grew to love him because he graciously interacts with his fans on social media on a regular basis, taking the time to respond somehow to those who absolutely adore him. This commitment to fans hasn’t gone unnoticed. Scott is someone who would be a truly dedicated friend, much like his character, Ross.
In our interview, we were able to learn about Scott’s beginnings and his devotional work at a restored and revived theater in Scotland. It was a pleasure to get to know him and share his story.
