Outlander Panel at NYCC 2019 Season 5 Musings

Outlander-NYCC-17-530x353

The cast of Outlander Season 5 was asked a battery of questions for an hour on the Hulu Stage at Madison Square Garden on October 5, 2019. Many were from fans and a few from presenter @GingerZee. It was live broadcast on SyFy Wire at 5:30pm EST.

Outlander New York Comic Con Season 5 Panel October 5, 2019 Video

Cast members Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Duncan Lacroix, David Berry, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Maril Davis (Producer), Ron D. Moore (Showrunner/Producer), and author Diana Gabaldon arrived at the panel. Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin were absent this year and filming in Scotland for the show, however there was a question and answer video from them and a new Season 5 teaser.

What we know from the new Season 5 trailer and the three panels at Comic Con?

Claire wants Brianna, Roger, and Jemmy to go back. It is too dangerous in the 18th century, and she blames herself. They are there because of her choice to go back. There is the growing conflict with The Regulators, which is a small prelude of things to come with the larger scaled American Revolution. Roger wants to go back, and Brianna clearly states that their family is there. What she really fears is that Jem can’t go through the stones, and the safety of her parents.

In the spirit of letting the audience in on as much as they could, with the watchful and warning Maril Davis, Maria Doyle Kennedy admitted that Jocasta (er) would have “relationships”. Those of you who have read the books know where this may be going. Duncan Lacroix stated that the role of Murtagh has been ramping up each season, and in Season 5 he is doing some of his most challenging work.  Sam and Caitriona talked about the dangers of the New World, the upcoming battles, and family concerns.

Casting Season 5 Update: Got a Beardsley Twin, or William Ransome?

paul-gorman-headshot

This week we saw a blip about and announcement for a young Scottish actor, Paul Gorman. Book enthusiasts know of the characters of the Beardsley twins, two boys that end up being taken into the fold at Frasers Ridge, which is becoming a community of misfits and families that the Frasers (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) take under their wings. With casting for young Jemmy, there will need to be at least two sets of twins for ages. Given the privacy of young children, we may not see good pictures until after season premier. However the Beardsley twins are a bit older, and they are twins who share many a scene together. That’s why the casting of a young relatively unknown, Paul Gorman is a mystery. Will he be a Beardsley, playing both roles, or playing William. Photos have come out this week showing Lord John Grey and a very young officer.

Paul Gorman has done extensive stage work with Scottish Youth Theater and is a member of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There are two film credits, Eavesdrop and Tooth. Outlander is a great vehicle for new talent to showcase.

Outlander Lallybroch Filming Rescheduled for September?

midhope-web-image-2.jpg

There was some consternation earlier this week when scheduled filming at Midhope Castle, Lallybroch to Outlander Fans, had filming cancelled.  There had been a few days of scheduled filming commencing on August 26th. A press release by the Houpton Estate said that the filming had been postponed due to an actor growing a beard for another production. Apparently this would be too much hair for the production? The estate said it would be having filming possibly September 2 – 6.

It is possible that this is a delaying tactic to abate too many visitors being around during filming. Some of the filming sites are getting mobbed during the hight of tourist season and this can make filming difficult.

If you were planning on traveling to the area this week, call ahead to make sure you can have access.
