Outlander Season 4 filming is expected finish soon. As many suspected, the fourth season will wrap by the end of this month. In July, various members of the cast have a number of projects and conventions to attend, with the first taking place from June 30 to July 1 in Paris.
Filming will also start for Heughan’s new movie, Bloodshot, which will reportedly happen in South Africa. Meanwhile, Balfe will soon start filming Ford vs. Ferrari(which is still to receive an official name) with Matt Damon.
The cast and crew are onto the season finale filming now, with many night shoots taking place. It’s going to be exciting to find out when the filming wraps and if there are any photos of those final glances for seven months as the cast and crew take time off before filming Outlander Season 5.
Diana Gabaldon, the author of the Outlanderseries and a friend of Martin’s, recently backed up that idea when speaking with fans last week. We’re not sure what question inspired her to talk about this conversation she had with Martin, but it was interesting.
So Gabaldon asked Martin how things were going with “the newest book.” Quoth Martin, via Gabaldon:
I’m having all kinds of trouble. Have you ever killed somebody off that you later realized that you needed?…I just painted myself into a corner.
Let’s note that we don’t know when Martin and Gabaldon had this conversation. Perhaps it was years ago, and Martin has already written himself out of whatever corner he’d painted himself into. In any case, you have to wonder which dead character was/is giving him problems. It’s probably not a major one — the deaths of characters like Ned and Robb and Tywin are woven into the narrative such that we can’t imagine Martin ruing killing them off. Maybe someone like Maester Aemon or Qyentyn Martell or Kevan Lannister? It’s not the series lacks for dead people.
The idea of Martin being tripped up by a dead character he “needed” rings true. Martin is meticulous about his plotting, and has been known to rewrite parts of his books after he decides to change something. Diana Gabaldon isn’t phased, though. “This happens all the time when you write,” she says. “But you have an imagination…So if you paint yourself into the corner, I said, what you do is you get a new bucket of paint and you paint yourself back out and do the floor behind you. I mean, you can revise history — it’s easy if you try.”

Doune is one of the best preserved medieval castles in Scotland.
The Great Hall is 20 metres by 8 metres , and 12 metres high to its timber roof, again a 19th-century replacement.The hall has no fireplace, and was presumably heated by a central fire, and ventilated by means of a louvre like the one in the modern roof. No details of the original roof construction are known, however, and the restoration is conjectural.Large windows light the hall, and stairs lead down to the three cellars on ground level.
The hall is accessed from the courtyard via a stair up to a triangular lobby, which in turn links the hall and kitchens by means of two large serving hatches with elliptical arches, unusual for this period. The kitchen tower, virtually a tower house in its own right, is 17 metres (56 ft) by 8 metres (26 ft). The vaulted kitchen is on the hall level, above a cellar. One of the best-appointed castle kitchens in Scotland of its date, it has an oven and a 5.5-metre (18 ft) wide fireplace. A stair turret, added in 1581 and possibly replacing a timber stair, leads up from the lobby to two storeys of guest rooms. These include the “Royal Apartments”, a suite of two bedrooms plus an audience chamber, suitable for royal visitors.
Doune Castle has featured in several literary works, including the 17th-century ballad, “The Bonny Earl of Murray”, which relates the murder of James Stewart, 2nd Earl of Moray, by the Earl of Huntly, in 1592. In Sir Walter Scott’s first novel, Waverley (1814), the protagonist Edward Waverley is brought to Doune Castle by the Jacobites. Scott’s romantic novel describes the “gloomy yet picturesque structure”, with its “half-ruined turrets”.
The castle was used as a location in MGM’s 1952 historical film Ivanhoe which featured Robert Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor. The BBC adaptation of “Ivanhoe” in 1996 also featured Doune as a location. The castle was used as the set for Winterfell in the TV series Game of Thrones (2011–present), an adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels by George R. R. Martin. The castle was used as a stand-in for the fictional “Leoch Castle” in the TV adaption of the Outlander series of novels.

One fan, Andree Poppleton, even took photos of a stranger with Caitriona – who plays Claire Fraser in the time-travelling show – and is hoping to share them with her via social media.
She commented: “I don’t know this woman but maybe she will find the pictures I took of her with Caitriona Balfe yesterday? Please share for her to find them.”
If you do recognise the woman pictured then get in touch with Andree on Twitter.
Stars Sam Heughan (who plays Jamie Fraser) and John Bell (Ian Fraser) were also spotted enjoying a rare spot of sunshine in Cumbernauld – and seeing those sunny day snaps has us raring to go for season four.
Outlander’s Sam Heughan is set to join Vin Diesel in Bloodshot for Sony Pictures. The pic, which marks Diesel’s first starring superhero film, starts production in July with Dave Wilson directing and Neal H. Moritz producing. The film is casting up quickly, with Eiza Gonzalez and Michael Sheen also coming aboard.
Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe – a comic book universe composed of a diverse array of thousands of characters embodying a wide variety of genres, tones and demographic groups and over 81 million comics sold. Valiant’s superheroes are ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods; they are complex characters that reflect contemporary society, politics, and diversity of the modern world.
Wilson is a director at Blur Studios, the VFX factory owned by Tim Miller, who directed the first Deadpool and is reviving the Terminator franchise. Pic re-teams Fast and the Furious‘ Moritz and Diesel. Sony is hoping to launch a franchise here through the Bloodshot comic universe.
The film fits nicely into Heughan’s hiatus before he returns for Outlander, which recently got a two-season pickup from Starz. Heughan next stars with Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, which Lionsgate releases August 3.
Private Outlander tours can now reveal in Outlander season 4 five new characters are introduced to the Starz drama — Billy Boyd as Gerald Forbes, Caitlin O’Ryan as Lizzie Wemyss, Natalie Simpson as Phaedre, Tim Downie as Governor William Tryon, and Simona Brown as Gayle.
Who are these folks, you say? Here is a breakdown of the new additions and how they’ll fit into the narrative for the coming season, which is based on the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling Outlander series called Drums of Autumn.
Boyd (above) will portray Gerald Forbes, a wealthy lawyer in Cross Creek who is friends with his prominent client, Jocasta Cameron (Maria Doyle Kennedy). Boyd is best known for Lord of the Rings; his other credits includeThe Flying Scotsman, Seed of Chucky, and An Urban Ghost Story.
Brown pays Gayle, Brianna’s best friend and college roommate. Her TV credits include the new C4/Netflix series Kiss Me First. She was also in Roots for A&E.
O’Ryan is Lizzie, a Scottish woman who goes on a big adventure with Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton), the daughter of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). O’Ryan is is a recent graduate from the Oxford School of Drama; this role marks her TV debut.
Simpson will take over as Phaedre, the personal maid and seamstress for Jocasta, and is considered a trusted member of the River Run household. Her TV credits include Les Miserables.
Downie portrays Governor William Tyron, who was an actual historical figure. The ambitious William is a former British officer who used his family connections to land the position of governor. Downie’s film credits include Transformers: The Last Night, War Machine, Paddington, and The King’s Speech.

Sam Heughan has been teasing a number of announcements as of late, and one of them included the development of his own whisky. He teased it briefly in an interview this week on This Morning, and earlier today he released a little more news in the form of a name: Great Glen Company.
In the post below via his official Twitter, you can see the announcement of the name alongside the notice that “Great Glen is Coming.” The development of a whisky brand is certainly not something that happens overnight, so obviously this has been planned out for a while. Also, what better time to make said announcement than World Whisky Day? It’s a great way to get some attention out there on the brand before the launch, whenever that may be.
With a name like Great Glen, it’s pretty clear that the brand is meant to be a celebration of Scotland. The Great Glen is a famous rift valley / fault line that runs through much of Scotland, and there is also a famous pathway entitled the Great Glen Way that goes along with it. Developing a whisky that reflects Scotland is clearly important, and this also helps to tie it in more with Outlanderand the show’s devoted fans. Without ever mentioning or even referencing the show, the idea invokes a similar reaction. After all, Outlander fans would be a key marketing base for the product.
Heughan is not the first television star to be involved in a line of specialty beverages / spirits. Here in North America Arrow star Stephen Amell is heavily involved in Nocking Point, which is primarily a winery but also markets a number of other products. Doing this sort of thing is a way to further expand your business portfolio, while also exploring something else you have a passion for. Sam’s love of whisky is pretty well-documented at this point so this feels like the perfect endeavor for him to take on. The thing that continues to impress us is how he can juggle this with the show, charity work, and other ventures — it’s the end result of having focus and a good team around you.
