I’m reading the Outlander series and I’ve got to say they’re my Jamie & Claire. Richard Madden’s got the accent and the ginger beard and the all-around unf. But also his previous roles have shown that he can bring real soulfulness to characters. And Hayley is great at portraying intelligent, strong, confident, quick-witted women.
[I can see why a lot of people think of Chris Hemsworth. He’s literally exactly the way Diana Gabaldon has described Jamie minus the red hair. But I just can’t conceive of Jamie not being played by a Scottish actor.]
