Sasnak City Virtual Chat With Duncan Lacroix

Screen Shot 2020-10-05 at 6.46.33 PM

That Duncan Lacroix! On October 3, 2020 I joined a chat via Sasnak City’s magical portal, and preceded to ask the most difficult questions and embarrass myself silly. But really, we did have a wonderful conversation with our man that plays Murtagh, and we were gifted with a bit of insight to the mysterious Duncan Lacroix.

The following is a summary of the subjects that were covered.

Horses

Duncan was asked a question about how accomplished he was with riding before the Outlander series began. He explained that most actors put on their CV that they have ridden horses, but none of that is true. Unless you are really working on a productin with some heavy riding, you don’t get the experience. He had had some riding, or rather being placed on a horse sitting, brief scenes like in Vikings (Season 2). However he was very fortunate in being cast early for Outlander, he was part of the cast in bootcamp horse training. He got more training as they were doing the long riding treks like in the episode The Rent. He also watched some YouTube videos on communicating with horses and found that he wanted to take the time with the horse to get to know the animal, he would go and groom and handle the horse building up a relationship.

In contrast, when he was on the production The Outlaw King, the horse he was given was very green. Apparently at the time of production, Game of Thrones was in its last season and had hired all the horses trained to work in production. The horses they had hired for Outlaw King were from horse rescue and the one he was given had never been ridden. That was quite an experience. He then went on about how the horses all have their personality days. Oh yes, there was biting?

Message For Youth

Duncan was asked if he had any advice for youth. After thinking for a bit, advised they  get away from the social media. Being a group of teachers, we agreed!

Education

On the subject of his current educational endeavors, Duncan discussed his Philosophy studies and going back to university to pursue another degree. He expressed some frustration at university being mostly online, even before COVID issues, and missed the face to face classes we have all experienced. We all agreed and discussed how education had changed. Philosophy was discussed, how could it help acting, or just understanding phycology and people in general.

Travel Plans

Duncan was not able to travel for most of his life, stage acting in Ireland times were lean. He told us how fantastic it had been to have a month in New Zealand to himself, exploring. When COVID clears, he wants to travel to the Mongolian desert and travel using a 4×4 for about a month. It’s Murtagh Mobile Mach II.

Makeup and Costume

I asked a question about makeup and costume stories he  may have, and he was very gracious and supportive of the crew and how hard they work to make him and the other actors look good. They were there long hours. I asked about complexity and he talked about season 1 and the way they had Murtagh first looking, with the easiest of course being the muddied up and road dirt, to a slight prosthesis for pock marked cheeks and ruddiness. They dropped this in subsequent seasons, and of course the most recent change where he was aged to silver fox mode. He mentioned some of the gluing of beard parts, and the wig.

Production

I asked a question about the pictures that surfaced of him having a nap between filming shoots for season 1. Was it really a difficult shoot first season and tiring, do you rest in between? He mentioned that well, there were some long shoots for the blocks around the episodes The Rent, and also when they were filming the “Finding Jamie” episode, there was a lot of riding and being out of doors for long hours. Besides, if it was beautiful out, wouldn’t you rest in a field?

ACTING

Of course the most important was “Will we see you in anything soon?” Duncan explained that along with many other actors and productions being shut down due to COVID, there was nothing on at the moment. He had been in Los Angeles when the restrictions went in, meeting with a manager that he liked. The idea had been to get him trying for Broadway plays. He discussed how he really missed doing theatre, he had not been on stage since before Outlander started filming and really wanted to get back at it. It seems that even though doing another series would be great, his true passion is the stage and it would be a dream to get on Broadway. He’ll have to try again once productions get underway.

Thank you Duncan for putting up with the teachers and letting us catch a glimpse of your new directions in acting and life. It was a wonderful way to forget the world for a time and get some great insight to our favorite series and the man who played our favorite Godfather.

That Duncan Lacroix Autograph We’ve Been Waiting For

IMG_5098

So, back about 5 months ago many of us watched a lovely fan Zoom party with Wizard World Virtual Outlander Panel on May 5, 2020. Then many of us purchased autographs. Then many of us waited, and waited. COVID made shipping and getting a hold of the actors nearly impossible. After 5 months of traveling the world, I finally got my Murtagh Season 1 photo, the image I always thought of as the “Messy Murtagh”, professionally “dirted” up, sent to me. I’m so glad I got it in time for my Sasnak City Video group chat with Duncan Lacroix. I’m waiting on the details, and hopefully my question will be answered, and I will not be totally embarrassed to actually sort of be face to face with Duncan. Well, I guess if I survived Richard Rankin, I can survive anyone. Stay tuned.

Oh, and this great interview with Duncan surfaced this week. Looks like he wants to know how the story plays out, too. We miss you, man.

And why do these announcers just not get how to pronounce “Lacroix”? It’s CRAW.

And here’s some more mumbled fun at Wizard World Cleveland last March before the lockdown. You’ll have to crank the volume.

Duncan Lacroix Interviews

Is it a real Magazine or a Fan Fancy. We’d Fancy a copy!

While I await my meet at Sasnak City virtual meeting with Duncan Lacroix in a few weeks, a few lucky people have been able to interview him recently. So jealous. There is also the the above magazine that could just be a fan’s whimsy, or is it real? We wish it were so. Can’t find a publisher, looks UK maybe? Feel like a bit of a sleuth?

Mystery Solved!

It’s a vanity piece by the photographer David Ho, at Headshots Scotland showing his prowess at great headshots for actors and models. Send him a line. He’s even done Nicola! Twitter @davidhophoto.

Duncan Lacroix is Munro Bagging Again!

Duncan Lacroix on Ben Lawers 6/9/20

Have You Started to Bag Yours? With lockdowns easing around some areas of the world, many people have been keeping up health with socially distanced and pod groups for hiking. While you should still bring your mask, you can still get in some healthy moves.

Duncan Lacroix started the Munro bagging last weekend with Ben Lomond, often used as the warm up to the season. Today he bagged two more, Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawers. Hoping someone lucky got to meet up with him on the hikes. Check out his great shots on his Instagram site, the only media he’s on.

Hopefully he’s getting ready for some production or…secretly catching up with Heughan and McTavish while they finish up their filming of Clanlands.

Going to get to Scotland after quarantine? Check out this site and see if you can find some hillwalking groups to go with. Remember, don’t go hiking alone. Besides, it’s a great way to share.

Duncan Lacroix is Hitting The Books Again and Gave Update on WW Autographs!

I was awakened by a Duncan Lacroix bling (Instagram, he is only on Instagram) on the phone in the wee hours today. It appears that great knowledge is coming forth from his next term at Open University. What major do you think he is in? He already holds degrees in Drama and Theatre Studies of course at Roehampton Institute in London and Masters at The National University of Ireland in Galway. A second Bachelor’s in Philosophy or Graduate Studies in Mayhem? I’m going with the later.

What was even better was I actually was one of the first to respond and asked that question that has been nagging at us since May: Where are the photos and did he get them from Wizard World finally? Yep, a few days back they arrived. So if you too have been biting your nails, at least they finally got to him. So add in COVID delivery from the UK and his signing them all, maybe the end of September? If the USPS is still in operation. So, hope your day is a bit brighter “knowing” along with Duncan.

Thanks, mate!
