Outlander series will not go on forever. Its lead actor Sam Heughan acknowledged that it will come to an end eventually and shared what he will miss most and what he will do when it happens.
Heughan has been playing the role of Jamie Fraser since Outlander premiered in 2014. In a recent interview with GoldDerby, the actor was asked what he will do when the Starz drama comes to an end.
Sam Heughan admitted he wasn't sure yet how he would handle the end of the show or how he would get through it. One thing is for sure though. He will definitely miss Jamie Fraser.
Sam admitted even now that they (not only fans) are in Droughtlander, he already misses playing Jamie Fraser. Heughan was referring to the long wait for Outlander Season 6. The filming for the sixth installment was originally scheduled to start in May but it was pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Scottish star added that in every actor's career there is always a defining role for them. He believed that for him, it was the red-haired Highlander Jaime Fraser.
He said he would probably do therapy or some sort of ceremony to cope with the longing of playing the character and filming with the cast and crew. He explained that the entire Outlander team had formed a special bond over the years. Sam added that they also have an incredible fandom who supported the show and the cast in their journey.
Though Heughan had done several other projects while doing Outlander, he admitted that he can't still imagine what will happen to him when the show comes to an end. It is not that he wouldn't be able to land another huge role but it is more of the actor's attachment to the character that he played for years.
It is worthy to note that Heughan appeared in a couple of movies in between filming for Outlander. He appeared in Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon's movie The Spy Who Dumped Me in 2018. Sam also played a role in Vin Diesel's Bloodshot and he will reunite with his Outlander co-star Graham McTavish in Men in Kilts.
Meanwhile, Jamie Fraser could be the defining role for Sam Heughan but it may not be the only one. Caitriona Balfe's on-screen husband is still one of the front runners to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
Heughan auditioned for the role back in 2005 when Pierce Brosnan left the franchise but the role was given to Craig. Sam has been vocal that he wants to have another shot at playing 007. For now, the next Bond hasn't been announced and Sam Heughan still has a chance to play the iconic character.
