It’s been a journey of celebrations
seeing dreams unfolding
in flirtatious Twitter assignations,
watching joy unrolling
during this cinematic gestation.
And now, with keen anticipation
all around the Earth
One can feel the vibrations
from fans awaiting this birth:
an incarnation of literary creation.
Outlander comes to television! Premieres are being aired this weekend. It has been fabulous following along with author Diana Gabaldon as she has shared the fun from the moment the papers were signed and it was official that Ron Moore was turning her books series into an epic television series. We fans were part of the excitement as each character was cast, and I particularly enjoyed watching the delight sparkle in Diana’s eyes as she told me about being on set when she had her cameo!
My joy is vicarious, but it is a very genuine and thorough joy. It is just SO GREAT to experience the adventure of favourite books being transformed for a new media!
In case you don’t know, Outlander is airing in the US on Starz, in Canada on Showcase, and in Australia on Soho. In Canada, we have to wait until August 24th. It’s going to be painful as the American fans have 2 weeks ahead of us!
and here’s a little more information 🙂
Aye filmed in Glasgow, friend in the cast of extras! 😉 awaiting his debut…
Yup! in Cumbernauld. It’s all so briliant. Last summer when Sam Heughan was first cast, he was really active with his new fans, and we exchanged messages now and then. I almost met him, but I drove past when he was broken down on the highway, since I didn’t know it was him until several hours later when he posted about it.
Oh, and you could have been a hero 😉
I KNOW!! lol He was in a city an hour away from me for a week, and I tweeted him to invite him out for coffee and to say hi, but he didn’t reply. If he HAD, and I’d seen him in the flesh, I’d have recognized him, and he wouldn’t have been stranded for 4 hours on the side of the Trans-Canada Hwy in the middle of the Rockies. lol Not to mention my bug would have had both ‘Jamie’ AND Diana in her passenger seat within the same year! 😉
This has been a singular experience. Thanks to Diana being so generous! Loved every minute!
🙂 Yes, Beth. And didn’t you get to be right in the mix in LA?
No such luck for me. Would have loved to though! What I really want is blue pencil session with Diana!
Done that, and have the tapes to remember the occasion. http://www.siwc.ca Surrey in October, she’s there every year. Registration should be open now. It’s worth the trip, I’ve been a few times, and the more I go, the more I want to go again! 🙂
I looked. Sooooo far from Ohio! Was it wonderful? LOL can live vicariously through you ?!
Here’s my post after my first blue pencil with her, live away! 😉
How has this happened w/o my knowing a thing about it? “Outlander” is my favorite book in the whole world!!!!! Thank you SO much!
My absolute pleasure, Melody. If you’re in the US, their are previews happening via Starz assorted free marketing starting Aug 2nd. See the details of that here: http://www.starz.com/originals/outlander
