Subject: Anyone else?


If comparing book characters to series characters, I find I like Claire more in the series, I must of read her a wee bit bitchier than she is! :)

And Jamie... I think Sam is great and doubt anyone else could do a better job of it, but book Jamie is hard to compare anyone to!

[> I love both of them. They do such a good job of having "glass faces" - and their chemistry together makes the entire story believable! -- Lady-Jane, 15:50:09 04/26/15 Sun

[> I find both of them convey so much with their body language, esp faces and eyes! the sign of great acting! I am glad that we are discovering them first! AND yes agreed with Cait's Claire as being a bit more kind hearted but I saw that when she was nursing folks...which we don't see in the series...so I am glad to see Cait bring that about in other ways. -- BetsyG, 07:36:55 04/27/15 Mon

[> It's interesting to me that Sam plays Jamie as more youthful and idealistic than I picture him. The eagerness in his eyes when he talks of finally getting his pardon, the playfulness between the two of them - I don't read that. -- kgp, 05:41:02 04/29/15 Wed

[> [> When I read Outlander, I always envision Jamie to be in his early 30's, he is so mature. I always have a hard time remembering he is just 22. Sam is doing a nice job and I am enjoying the series, but he isn't playing Jamie that I know and love...especially this last episode. -- conmama, 09:31:42 04/29/15 Wed

[> [> [> There was so much rewriting that it is difficult to compare it to the book. In a sense it was more realistically awkward than Jenny just meekly moving over while Jamie takes on his birthrite. -- kgp, 11:49:59 04/29/15 Wed

[> [> I think it's really hard to for us readers to separate the Jamie we've grown to know over 20 years (who is now almost 60) from the 23-year-old he is in the first book. -- Lady-Jane, 15:51:11 04/29/15 Wed

[> The screen character that has really thrown me off is Murtaugh. You canna be canty if your 6' tall! -- PD, 08:05:51 04/29/15 Wed

[> Sam is not my Jamie, but he is close in certain scenes... and it's just as I had imagined. Case in point: the fight between Claire & Jamie after he rescues her from BJR. I have watched this scene over and over again and it blows me away. The intensity in his face... his overall body language and words. This is JAMIE. But there are other times, not so much. Physically, Sam can look almost too pretty (let's face it, Sam is beautiful). My Jamie is not pretty, he is ruggedly sexy... not an ounce of femininity. -- LP, 06:29:12 05/01/15 Fri

[> I also think I read Claire as more curt in the books than Cait plays her in the show (or, bitchier, if you will :) ). Same bitchiness when Davina reads Claire on the audio versions. Sam as Jamie is hit or miss for me - sometimes just perfect, sometimes, a bit too much eye blinking & eye brows pursed to show his deep thoughts or deep conflicts, seems out of place & breaks the moments for me.It doesn't, however, keep me from enjoying the show for its own merits. I love the show, I love the books - just in different ways sometimes. -- MaryJ, 06:48:19 05/01/15 Fri
