While Sam Heughan is well-loved for his role of Jamie Fraser in Outlander, the actor has been spreading his wings of late. He has starred in action film Bloodshot and worked alongside co-star Graham McTavish to produce Men in Kilts, a documentary series about Scotland. Now, Sam has revealed he would love to get back to working in the theatre.
Speaking on Outcasts, the podcast created by his co-stars Tim Downie and David Berry, he spoke about how much he loved the industry.
Tim asked: “Would you do anymore theatre? I know it’s difficult obviously doing Outlander and doing a theatre piece takes up such a chunk of time and is all consuming.
“But would you do more theatre do you think?”
“Oh I would love to,” Sam replied.
