Yes, there is something compelling about the Ian's isn't there! This is me, but I have always been turned on by someone with a prosthesis or a limp. I also like bald men too...sexy!

Actually I meant Roger, but Ian is such a good man that it is hard not to be drawn into his character as well.

I have all 6 books on my tbr piles, and hope to read Cross Stitch soon, but am worried I will have to read all of them one after the other, thereby abandoning all the others waiting to be read!

That's what happened with me, as soon as one book was finished I was running to start the next one.

Just found this video on you tube but perhaps a bit spoilerish for those who haven't read read Voyager.

That is one of my favourite scenes in the whole series. Great find Misfit!

That was one of my favorites as well. These Outlander you tube videos are major time suck. Here's another one. Interesting casting ideas.

This is one that a friend of mine has done and is lots of fun (and a bit tongue in cheek!)

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!
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

I don't think the link to this latest excerpt from Echo has been posted here yet.

As for casting Jamie if any one wants to suck a lot of time search them on you tube -- it's a cottage industry over there picking out who they want to play whom.
