Earlier this month, Sam Heughan was revealed to be lending his voice to an animated Gairloch folk tale from the Scottish Highlands for the BBC and the Gairloch Museum. The Outlander actor has also recently teased the release of Men in Kilts, a new Starz series which sees him travel around Scotland with co-star Graham McTavish. Now, the Jamie Fraser star has landed another major role, this time on the big screen.
