Outlanders in Los Angeles

Jan 11, 2014 by

Fans of the upcoming Starz’ cable series Outlander are gathering by the thousands today in Los Angeles for a chance to meet the VIP’s of the production: Diana Gabaldon (author of the books), Ron Moore (producer of the series), Caitriona Balfe (Irish actress playing Claire Fraser) and Sam Heughan (Scottish actor playing Jamie Fraser). The show is currently being filmed on location in Scotland and, to put it mildly, the first episode is eagerly awaited by legions of fans of Diana’s books.



For many Outlander devotees, the chance just to be in the same room as Sam Heughan aka Jamie Fraser is well worth the high cost of a trip to LA (tickets to the event were free).   For those of us whose budgets and schedules would not allow a trip to the West Coast, or those who could go, but didn’t snag a ticket, Starz is streaming the event LIVE at 4 pm, Pacific Time–click HERE to see all the fun.

Here’s hoping Sam speaks Scots Gaelic at least once and wears a kilt.


Photos in my meme are HERE, along with more Outlander info from Starz.   Diana’s quote is from a James Hibberd (@james_hibberd) online article posted yesterday at Entertainment Weekly, HERE.

    Let’s sing, dance and share a wee dram of whisky to toast the New Year ~ Lang May Yer Lum Reek!


In Scotland, the New Year festivities around January 1st are commonly referred to as Hogmanay. The word itself is Scottish for the last day of the year, and Hogmanay celebrations can last all night, through the day on January 1, and even into January 2nd. Customs and traditions vary from town to town in Scotland, but always involve merrymaking and good times, especially in Edinburgh, which holds the largest Hogmanay festivities.

Lang may yer lum reek” is Scottish slang for “long may your chimney smoke“, and is a common salutation used to wish someone health, wealth and prosperity in the New Year.
