Speaking Outlander: Why Jamie Is Taking His Time About It

Nov 30, 2013 by

In honor of St Andrew’s Day, the good people at Starz posted their first Youtube lesson in “How to Speak Outlander.”

The video clip starts with a native Scots speaker telling us how to pronounce “Sassenach” (in case you don’t already know), but Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) quickly comes in to take charge. After all, it doesn’t really matter how anyone else says it–for Outlander fans, ONLY Jamie can speak that word correctly, softly, sexily so that we feel it ripple inside us. Ahem.


I’m definitely an instant gratification kinda gal, so waiting for the show to debut in the Fall of 2014 is not something that comes naturally to me. I must admit that all this visual and audio teasing from the folks at Outlander is getting me a bit…fashed.
Just the way Jamie would want it, I’m sure–he means to take his time about it, aye?
