The Outlander Trailers: The Effect On Our Global Heart Rate and Our Anticipation for the New Season

 We have loved watching the trailers for Season 3, not to mention the heart stopping images from the Entertainment Weekly cover shoot.  This is a pure sign that Outlander is definitely back! If you have a wee addiction for anything Outlander, we can imagine your responses. The glimpses into the next season may have ignited a wealth of emotions – more likely it reinforced your addiction to all that Outlander holds true. The reflection of history, journeys of hope and faith, impact of war, examination of morality, suspense, test of character, voyages into the unknown, bonds of families, honor, and love. The absolute truth is that you are left wanting more! From our perspective, we were entranced and completely absorbed by the imagery of Season 3. Starz has done one thing completely correct, the adaptation of Outlander is and will always be OBSESSABLE. 

Only seven more days until the season premiere! As we get closer to September 10th, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to discuss our newly cemented addiction to this series, our desire to send a sincere thank you to the entire cast and crew, and reflect on our favorite moments of Droughtlander.

Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton: Their Talent, Portrayal of Roger and Brianna, and What We Admire Most

There are many characters in the Outlander series that immediately grab one’s attention. Diana Gabaldon has shared her writing process on several panels we have attended. We are always fascinated to hear her speak of her own manner in developing the nature and disposition of each individual within the series. She is able to follow her own instincts to masterfully bring the essence of each character to life. We admire her ability to draw from her own memories, use her imagination to create vivid context, and utilize true components of history to form her timelines. The results of her writing are unlike any other author we have experienced. As readers, it is easy to immerse ourselves in this fictional world and quickly form an emotional connection to the characters she introduces. Yet, as we follow their journey of adventure, success, hardships, and facing unfathomable barriers – each are capable of surprising us in the most unexpected ways.

There are a several roles within the series that endure surprising transformations through dramatic shifts in the storyline over the course of the books. A few that immediately come to mind include Young Ian Fraser Murray and Fergus Fraser. However, it is Brianna Randall Fraser and Roger Wakefield MacKenzie’s journey that comes to the forefront when we think of characters who will soon embark on a remarkable journey. Everyone loves characters they can root for, and these two will certainly not disappoint. Leaving fans who have read the books to hold their breath, we not only foresee the events in their future, but also look forward to seeing the progression of this dynamic relationship on screen.

Seeing Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton at San Diego Comic-Con was an incredible experience, and we can certainly attest that their chemistry is a perfect match for what lies ahead for their characters! In our excitement for the new season, Sass3 couldn’t wait to celebrate these immensely talented actors and our top reasons why we admire this literary couple.
