Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we now have a sneak peek at Ron Moore’s cameo in this week’s episode of Outlander. Ron appears alongside Diana Gabaldon in episode four, entitled “The Gathering,” for a brief moment, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled this Saturday to catch him in action.
Now that I’ve come out of my Comic-Con haze, I’ve created a new gallery of all of my photos from Friday’s event. In the gallery below you’ll find all of my pics from the red carpet (or should we say tartan carpet) premiere, followed by the cast Q&A session with Sam, Cait, Lotte, Graham, Tobias, Diana, and Ron. The cast rolled up to the tartan carpet in classic 1940s cars, and followed bagpipers and lads in kilts onto the press line. After we had our chance to chat with the cast and crew, we all went inside the theatre and were treated to a performance by composer Bear McCreary, who played some classic Scottish tunes and debuted the theme he wrote for Claire and Jamie. Seeing the first episode on the big screen was truly a remarkable experience, and I I think it’s safe to say that I wasn’t the only one in the audience with goosebumps and a lump in their throat. The first episode was everything I could hope for (the second, which I screened before the premiere, is just as good, but that’s all I’ll say for now). I don’t think you will be disappointed with the show. Starz and the cast and crew have done an amazing job, and it’s everything I could hope for and more. Hope you enjoy the pics from this very epic night!
Friday was a big day at San Diego Comic-Con, especially if you are an Outlander fan. The first Outlander event of the day was a panel discussion in room 6A, and I was lucky enough to nab a front row seat at the event. If you’d like to view the entire panel, Starz has made it available for all to see, which you can check out in the video below. I’ve also added a gallery of photos I took at the event, featuring Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Tobias Menzies, Lotte Verbeek, Graham McTavish, Ronald Moore, and Diana Gabaldon.
It’s been a busy day for Outlander news, with the official announcement that Diana Gabaldon and the cast of the TV series will be appearing at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 25th. The panel will take place at 2:15 in room 6A and will feature the following cast/crew members:
Ronald D. Moore
There will also be an autograph session on the same day at the Starz booth inside of the exhibit hall.
For more information on the autograph session, be sure to visit booth 4029 to see how you can participate. From past SDCC experience, it’s usually a choice of which one you want to see more, the panel or the autograph session. For shows and movies with big fandoms, people usually are camped out overnight in order to attend a highly anticipated panel, and autograph session tickets are usually part of a drawing that takes place while you may be in line for that panel. This may not be the case with Outlander, but it very well could be, so you may have to choose which one you’d rather do. This has been my experience in other years, but it very well could be different, so if you are attending, we sure to get more info at the Starz booth.

ABOUT: The “Outlander” series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. The series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books by Ronald D. Moore (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”), follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
“Outlander” premieres Saturday, August 9 at 9:00 pm ET/PT exclusively on STARZ and is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
