Sam Heughan, 'Jamie' (official)
Dream cast or not, Starz announced on July 9, 2013 that Sam Heughan, native Scot and already into the red hair dye, had been cast as Jamie Fraser. Diana Gabaldon, the author of the Outlander book series, said of the casting: "Oh. My. God. That man is a Scot to the bone and Jamie Fraser to the heart. Having seen Sam Heughan not just act, but be Jamie, I feel immensely grateful to the production team for their painstaking attention to the soul of the story and characters."
