The author is unsurprisingly very attached to the characters in Outlander and there’s one scene from episode 11, Journeycake, which she wrote, she can’t stop watching. There are several tender moments in the instalment but for Diana Gabaldon, watching Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) open up to Brianna (Sophie Skelton) about her half-brother is one of her favourites.
Diana explained there were three key moments she couldn’t wait to write for episode 11.
Two came from her books and involved Jamie and his wife Claire (Caitriona Balfe) sharing an intimate moment on a window sill and then inspecting his semen the next morning.
However the third scene was written especially for the Starz series and didn’t feature in the original books.
When asked which scenes she was excited to write, Diana detailed: “There were three, actually.
“Jamie gives Brianna William’s picture, and she says, “Who’s this?” And he says, very bluntly, “It’s your brother.”
“It’s a deeply, deeply emotional, but very low-key conversation that is so moving.”
Praising Sophie and Sam further, Diana added: “I thought they just nailed it.
“I’ve gone back and watched that particular scene a dozen times, at least.”
Meanwhile, since Outlander season five came to an end, Diana has been busy interacting with fans over the series.
She regularly chats about what is still to come and one fans asked if there is the possibility for Jamie to time travel into the future.
They asked: “How about a book where Jamie travels to the future? I really want to see him encounter Bri and Roger’s world.”
But Diana wasn’t so keen as she simply tweeted back: “Never gonna happen.”
Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
