Now in the pic below I can sort of see how Gerard Butler would make an OK Jaime. Still a little "too" handsome and not rugged enough for me but not that bad:

I think Gerard Butler would make a good older Jamie and the previous photo (I don't know who he is!) a great younger one. Both good looking men in my opinion.

Oh no he looks hideous, like a scarecrow! I like him dark and smouldering....plus I think he looks too old in this mock-up as well.

How about this guy? I can't remember his name -- but I'd heard through the grapevine that Ms. Gabaldon had mentioned him at a book signing. He's a model, as you might suspect.

I don't know -- I never pictured Jamie as drop-dead gorgeous -- a little more rugged -- but this comes closer -- for me -- than Gabriel Aubrey.

Wow!!! Yes, yes, yessss as a young Jamie in the first novel. This is very much as I see him. Thanks for posting! He's got the slight slant of the eyes (that DG is always mentioning) that I've not seen in the others.

I couldn't stand it -- had to dig around on my forum until I figured out who this guy is. His name is Tom Dunne.

He's very handsome !

Kind of weird, but I went to a bookshop near my work today and saw a guy in there with red hair, a bit rough looking but not as handsome as this Tom Dunne and he put me in mind of Jamie ! haha
