Sam Heughan's quotes

  • I never once dreamed of sort of being able to be in an American TV series, you know? It was all about theater and touring and sort of being an actor around Scottish theater.
  • People forget actors can adapt and change their appearance. In this industry, people sometimes cast to type, or as close to type as possible, but actors are a lot more versatile than you think!
  • Working on 'Outlander' has been a delight, it really has. I had kind of forgotten what Scotland was like, and I'd turned into a bit of a Londoner.
  • You do have to learn how to wear a kilt, and it's certainly very liberating and very freeing, but surprisingly very comfortable to wear, to ride a horse in a kilt. I was surprised by that.
  • I auditioned for 'Game of Thrones' seven times! Loads of times.
  • Shakespeare language is fantastic, and to be honest, you don't need to do anything to Shakespeare.
  • There's something about the silence of people listening to someone or watching someone - I just... I love that.
  • I actually got an initial sense of how big 'Outlander' was going to be on Twitter. We're all on there to help promote the show and also interact with the fans.
  • My accent is... sort of an Edinburgh sort of soft southwest Scottish accent. It could almost be English.
  • I'm obsessed with the moon and space travel, so if I could incorporate that, I'd love to go to space.
  • I'm very lucky. I had a great childhood.
  • I was a big 'Battlestar Galactica' fan and 'Star Trek' fan. I grew up watching those.
  • I was born and brought up in the countryside. I used to live in a sort of converted stables on the grounds of a castle, and I spent a lot of my childhood running around with a pretend sword pretending to be Robert the Bruce.
  • I'd like to be remembered as someone who made a difference and left the world a better place... and was a reasonably good actor.
  • She (Sam's mother and artist, Chrissie Heughan) instilled in me how tough it would be as an artist, how difficult it is to make a career out of it... probably my work ethic as well, that you have to work hard to get something.
  • [on constantly showing off his six pack abs in Outlander] Do I enjoy it? No, but it's a part of Outlander. I enjoy working out and getting a six-pack, but I just wish I could be unbuttoned maybe only three or four buttons for those scenes.
