Yep, a whole thread just for him! :D

Diana has put up a linkto a picture that she says is a fairly good representation of what Jamie looks like to her.

Awfully young there. I'd gotten so used to him being more...well..mature by the last book. But yes, Jamie deserves a whole thread to himself :p :)

Yeah...he'll do...for the Cross Stitch years.

Mind you I am reading The Fiery Cross atm, and he is 49.

So Claire must be almost her mid fifties. I do kind of wish that there wasn't the 20 year missing years, as we might have got a lot more books!

I'm trying to think who he looks like, he's a mixture of a few people!

I miss no end of threads if they're not on top when I come to the forum for a quick break from the day job.
Just seen Jamie's 'lookalike'. Ummmm.... Nope. Doesn't do it for me in my imagination, although I can't think of anyone I'd suggest. Eyes and nose are very wrong to my mental image and the hair is too dark. He's nice looking but not enough WOW factor. Keep on searching....

I am actually quite suprised, pretty good resemblance to the image in my head. I think the eyes and hair are pretty much bang on, but the nose and mouth could be fine tuned. Can't wait to see him with a few more age lines and battle scars! ;)

Years ago someone posted a pic to an e-list I was on and I thought that it was pretty much as I imagined Jamie Fraser to look, but I can't remember who the guy was - an ice skater? Perhaps not. Goldfish memory strikes again. :(
