Duncan Lacroix and Snap Chat Shenanigans

IMG_2962

Who wears it better, Berry or Lacroix?

Fans of actor Duncan Lacroix woke to some shenanigans on his Instagram account today. Duncan has discovered filters on Snap Chat. And we now see his not so secret desires, or musings. A grand salute to the ten year old in us all. Looks like maybe he has a man crush on David Berry.

 

Included: Two shots of the feminine side of Lacroix and Berry, as well as two baby shots. Look out!

Don’t walk across intersections while on Snap Chat, just a hint.

For those of you who wondered, yes, Murtagh was born with that beard.

Night shoot spotted on May 6, 2019 by @stewart9395 at Mine Woods, Bridge of Allan, a small town near Stirling, Scotland. None other than Duncan Lacroix was spotted going in and reconnoitering the area, and what looks to be the Regulators forming up. Production area is a camp scene and small crossroads or trading area in the wooded area around the quarry. The Movie Makers equipment trailers and lorries are up and in position.

Check out the Bridge of Allan Facebook page @bridgeofallan for all the up to dates as locals snap shots.

If you are fortunate to be in Scotland for the next few days, May 6-8, you may catch some of the filming. Maybe even give a Regulator a hug. They will need it.

Season 5 Production Previews

Teaser Gif with Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin

If you have Starz® on cable or satellite, there’s promise of an Outlander Season 5 glimpse before Starz® debut of The Spanish Princess, May 5 at 8PM EST. Otherwise  known as Katherine of Aragon, the series tells the story of who became first wife to Henry VIII after she was married to his elder brother. You can watch the new series debut now on the Starz® App, and tonight on the cable channel. Before the show you will get a first glimpse at filming for Outlander Season 5. I have read several postings and many have seen this. However, apparently if you have it through Amazon Prime, you don’t get a peek.

We asked Starz® on Twitter if they would have a glimpse for those of us who App it, they assured us we would have access. Sorry to say, this techie wasn’t able to get Amazon Starz® App to display it, you may have to watch it through your computer. If you have the App and have a cable provider, you may be able to view it. Never fear, it will turn up on the YouTube site soon, if some fans don’t manage to broadcast it earlier. Here’s what showed up Monday on YouTube.

Costume Changes for The Show

We have viewed a few new costume changes for the show. Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, shared a glimpse of new attire on his birthday, was a scant day or two away from book Jamie character’s birthday. Jamie Fraser would be 298 years old today. There have been hints that Jamie would travel to the future in Season 5 rumors, but book readers know the only way that happens is the mysterious ghost of the Highlander in the series pilot episode that Frank encounters watching Claire from the window. It also looks like all the wigs have changed for the main 5 characters as well.d5fvwo5uuaal3x2-1556733416

We’re getting our first taste of how seasons 5 and 6 flavors may go. For those of you watching from day one on the series, seasons 1 and 2 had many of the same production flavors, with 3 and 4 being dynamically different. Different writers, directors, crews changed. The writer’s room Toni Graphia and Matt Roberts started taking over podcasts and after show commentary, and the storylines, though expected to change, had very different looks and feels in the production designs. Coming to the Colonial America location would change things a bit. It looks like the new costume designer, Starz alumni Trisha Biggar, is revamping the looks of the show already. To look at her impressive CV, check this out. She has worked on two Star Wars films, and on television costumed for Emerald City and Da Vinci’s Demons II & III. She has credit for Season 5 Outlander already listed. We have been very fortunate with Terry Dresbach’s Twitter postings, and blog shares for the past 4 seasons. She has promised to try to keep up the account now for design concepts only. However, we don’t know if Biggar has a Twitter presence in mind for her tenure in season 5. With the few shots we have seen already, there are some stark costume changes. What can you do if you live in a colony that is heavily taxed on goods, including materials for dress, how realistic is it that characters can obtain new clothing.

Teaser Leaks and Rumors Abound

Duncan Lacroix and Caitriona Balfe are seen sporting darker brown wigs in the production teaser, no silver steaks for Claire. Rumors are flying that there are some flash back scenes being filmed. Or is it that they have to disguise Murtagh somehow as he is now even more wanted by Gov. Tryon? Lacroix’s Instagram had a great shot of Graham McTavish and him paling around near the Stevenson Memorial in Edinburgh today. Could there be some flashback scenes in season 5? Last season we had a Frank and Bree on that fateful night.Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 3.30.48 PM

Outlander Cast Hiking Ben Lui

IMG_2855Instagram accounts for Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton, and Duncan Lacroix lit up the day before Easter. The cast members along with David Berry and past crew members went hiking Ben Lui in Scotland. Although not tall enough for Munro status, the hike still commanded great views of higher climbs still, and fabulous green valleys. Duncan appears to be the camera person for most shots, then finally gives us a selfie.

Here’s hoping that Duncan didn’t pitch David off a cliff, since his musings on ditching Berry somewhere as Murtagh and LJG don’t quite see eye to eye on things. Healthy rivalries aside, it looks like all had a fabulous hike and made room for chocolate eggs. Or knowing all of them, a bit of whiskey.

Then there was the Easter egg hunt at Barry Waldo and Jon Gary Steele’s place, in which Lacroix does a chocolate egg stuff his face much like in Cool Hand Luke routine. Somehow he lived to tell the tale, and is hopefully filming today.

 

Lacroix Sends a Little Bad Santa Love

Duncan Lacroix

Duncan Lacroix (Murtagh) posted some more trailer picts from Season 4, pulling faces and running the gamut of his acting range? Hardly, the man has so many more to show us. Maybe it’s all to build up his outlaw hiding-in-plain sight mode as the Regulator on the strike and run trail. But really, he was disappointed in not getting the holiday Santa job.

You know how some scared kids could be by the man in red sometimes, however there would have been some really happy fans sitting in his lap if he had the job.

Caitriona Balfe posted a sunrise, Sam posted a IMG_2845sunset picture, and there was a conference with Cait’s famous cat Eddie. But somehow these faces being pulled just make the day for us sidekick fans.

 

 

Table Reads Start for Season 5 Outlander

Sophie Skelton in the Armory having a blast off

As you may have read in the various feeds, there have been a lot of new changes for Season 5. One of them is that both Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan are now producing for season 5. We know that Cait is very serious about this new role, as she showed up on set well before Sam did, because she is such the professional. Both actors hinted at taking on greater roles in the production of the Outlander series late last year. We’ll see what new directions the series takes with the pair taking a hand in production.

Other actors from the show, all showing their scripts or table cards started posting on Instagram this week, including Duncan Lacroix, whose name was misrepresented again, and lamented over a bit in his Instagram feed. But he takes it all in with great humor.

Hang on and keep checking your feeds, it’s going to be a long Droughtlander.

Outlander Season 5 Production Heats Up, Actors and Set Designers Tease

Duncan season 5 start

This morning we awoke to Duncan Lacroix staring over his own shoulder. The offices are filling up with not only production crew, but the actors are coming in to get ready for read throughs and fittings.

Production: Jon Gary Steele has been busy on his Instagram account helping everyone survive along with Matt Roberts. Jon has been featuring BTS of builds both on site and in the studios at Wardpark Film and Television studios. We are left guessing which scene, which episode, and the identity of some items not quite finished. Jon has been showing some great pre build bones on the set of the cabins, and one this week that may be S5’s Big House. Fans of the Outlander Books are waiting for representation of their favorite parts of Fraser’s Ridge. We were hoping for a cabin build for Murtagh, but with the cliff hanger in Season 4, were’s hoping that Jamie and Claire may still build it in the hope someday he can live out his days there. Perhaps a very deep basement to hide in with access to the outside with escape tunnels. What, Jon can do that.

Link to Caitriona’s Back Stage tour

Looking at the set builds both at the studios with Caitriona Balfe’s live action B&W set building tour was a blast this week, she even caught a dodging Jon Gary Steele, not one for the limelight, but who is kind to share the magnificent work his crew does daily.

For those of you lucky enough to start chasing the film crews as they start up in the next few months, here are the locales for River Run and the Indian Village, Frasers Ridge.

River Run was filmed here last year

Abercairny Estates, Crieff

Frasers Ridge was filmed in parts of  these two areas. You will have to hunt for the various places filmed:

Cumbernauld House Park and Glen

Do you know where? Kept a huge secret because of roaming laws in Scotland, as well as landowners in the area. Places where outdoor scenes have been filmed are in

Indian Villages were created in:
