Since the first of the now eight-volume Outlander series was published in 1991, Diana Gabaldon’s novels have captivated the hearts — and ovaries — of millions. With Starz’s adaptation — from executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) — set to begin Aug. 9, the adoration bestowed upon the main characters, Jamie and Claire, has transferred to the actors portraying them: Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe.
After Outlander’s standing-room-only panel at San Diego Comic-Con, BuzzFeed sat down with Heughan and Balfe for a game requiring rapid-fire responses. Their enthusiasm, much like their chemistry, was palpable.
Outlander premieres Saturday, Aug. 9 at 9 p.m. on Starz.
