Starz has released two brand new pics for Ronald D. Moore’s (Battlestar Galactica) upcoming time-traveling series Outlander.
Based on author Diana Gabaldon’s series of books (7 big massive books are out to-date with an 8th one coming up on June 10), Outlander tells the story of WWII combat nurse Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall who steps through the stones at Craigh na Dun and ends up in 1743 Scotland where she meets Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous Highlander.
The first pic shows a quiet, romantic moment between Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her husband Frank Randall (Game of Thrones’ Tobias Menzies).
The second pic shows Claire tending to a wounded and half–naked (and very buff) Jamie (Sam Heughan). Naysayers about Sam being not big enough to play Jamie, please stay at the door.
So, well, hum, yes, verra nice, verra nice indeed.
Outlander will air on Starz in the Summer of 2014.
