Celebrating The Artist Among Us: The Journey of Teri Biglands

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.

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.

Clan Tours: Walking The Paths Of Our Favorite Outlander Characters

The Outlander series has changed the manner in which we view historical fiction. Initially written for practice, Diana Gabaldon did not limit herself on the contents she wrote about. The portrayal of the world of Outlander includes elements such as war, adventure, spirituality, morality, family, bonds of friendship, and even components of fantasy. However, through it all, the story was built on the foundation of true history. Diana Gabaldon’s gift for research enables her to accurately reflect historical timelines of the 18th century while also portraying real-life figures and important points of world heritage within the light of fiction. Her gift of vivid and descriptive storytelling is unmistakable and unlike any other author. This often invites Outlander enthusiasts, like ourselves, to search for the footsteps of history upon which the series was based and, perhaps, follow the fictional path of our beloved characters in the process.

Dawn Chandler: Her Casting in the Outlander Season 2 Finale and Beyond

Dawn Chandler illustrates the magic of being a performer. She is able to interpret and tell a story that invites an emotional connection to her viewers, allowing them to truly feel part of the narrative being told. From theatre to television, she has begun to place her artistic mark with each performance credit. Her dedication to her craft is also portrayed in her desire to continue expanding her levels of presentation by going beyond each roles initial expectations. To watch her authentically interpret each character she embodies is always enjoyable to witness. However, we also believe one of her biggest merits lies in her genuine personality that she displays outside of her work as an actress. Her heartfelt messages to fans and our ease of conversation during this interview made us realize how grounded and humble she truly is – and we would love nothing more than to be able to sit down and enjoy a drink with her one day. It is with great pleasure that Sass3 presents the talented Dawn Chandler. We feel honored to have had the opportunity to communicate with her after the completion of Season 2 finale of Outlander.
