What Does Jamie Look Like?

Post by Margaret » Thu October 2nd, 2008, 1:18 am

Guest reviewer Susan Gillmor has written a fun review of <i>Outlander</i> for my website: http://www.HistoricalNovels.info/Outlander.html.

Plus, there's a link at the end of the review to a Diana-Gabaldon-approved picture of what Jamie Fraser looks like. Cuuute!

Great review and I love the picture of Jamie- very much as I'd imagined him, though possibly his designer stubble should be a little more ginger!

That is kind of dissapointing to me! I pictured him much more ruggedly handsome than that. That just soo doesn't fit the Jaime I pictured for two months while devouring the entire series! :(

I definitely see the bones of him in the photofit, though I imagine him now as older and more formidable in appearance as it's not long since I read "Breath of Snow and Ashes" and he's a mature and powerful chieftain there.

I'm new here--but with a well-established Jamie opinion!

Hello, everyone! The picture's surprisingly close to the Jamie I imagine, except(!). . . Diana always gives him higher cheekbones and slanted eyes and he'd benefit from a scar or two. And I don't picture him with the Don Johnson/Miami Vice kind of facial growth; I see him either clean-shaven or with a full red beard. But it's a great picture!

Thanks, diamondlil! I'm awaiting Gabaldon's last Jamie/Claire installment with more patience than I managed for the last two. It is nice to meet other fans. I'm still feeling my way through the technicalities of this site--so far so good!

Somebody else posted on another site that Phillip Winchester would make a good Jamie, if he had red hair. I don't think so myself. Does this chap do it for any of you?
