I suppose a Scottish warrior would've looked quite scary.

Yes, don't forget those cat-like "Fraser" (or possibly MacKenzie?) eyes..................funny what sticks in your head haha. And wasn't Jamie a red-head?

He'll dye his hair, I would imagine. I actually think he's blond in real life.

Let's hope they do a better dye job than Mel Gibson in Hamlet, when it was that weird shade of orange! Red is meant to be one of the hardest colours to dye hair, and I'll expect he'll have extensions too.

Just read that Tobias Menzies (Edmure in Game of Thrones) has been cast as Frank/Jack Randall.

[quote=""Vanessa""]And here he is photoshopped. I thought Jamie did have blue eyes? Or were they green?[/quote]

Can we get that hair a bit more blonde but keep the blue eyes, then I'd cast him as Arminius in my novel-in-progress. :)

I read the first three Outlander books ages ago. Nice enough entertainment but I stopped halfway through book 4. It was too much of the same and I cared less for the American setting than I did for the British/French one. Plus, yes, we know Claire ad Jaime have a lively sex life; we don't need to witness it every. damn. time they do it.

Couldn't agree more - another off-putting aspect of this series!!!

There's now a pic of him as Jamie on Diana's website - not bad, although he does look a bit like he's on a photo-shoot for an outdoor-wear catalogue. I haven't really got a strong image in my head of what Jamie looks like anyway, so I think he looks OK.

I thought the press shots earlier in the post were promising, but the one on Diana's website? Nope, doesn't do it for me. He's nice enough, but no way is he anything like Jamie!
