Diana Gabaldon's cameo appearance

When Diana Gabaldon visited the set of the OUTLANDER TV series in February, she got a tour of the production facilities. Now we can see a bit of it for ourselves in this video.



Here's a brief video of Diana talking about her experience on the set.  SPOILER WARNING: If you don't want to see the actual scenes from Episode 104 in which Diana appears, don't watch this video!



Note to people outside the US, I have no idea if these videos will work for you or not.



Here are Diana Gabaldon and Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore, as they appeared in Episode 104.  I think their costumes are just gorgeous! (By the way, Diana says that she was the one who came up with her character's name, Iona MacTavish.)

Some of you may recall that Diana posted a detailed two-part account of her visit to the set in February, including what it was like to film her cameo appearance.  It's definitely worth reading, especially now that many of us have seen Episode 104 ("The Gathering"), in which she appears.

Thankyou Karen ! The 1st video of Diana on her tour of the facilities was not available in my country but I watched it on some other Outlander-related page ; the other one when
Diana speaks about her cameo worked fine for me in Europe ! Our Diana and Ron are magnificent in their lovely 18th century outfits !

The more I see of Diana the more I get the sense her own eyes are the inspiration for Jamie's: throughout the books she describes the slanted eyes and the cheekbones of Jamie, Bree etc. I guess that makes the characters truly borne of her!

Also, the type of long flowing clothes she likes to wear in real life, really makes her look exotic, almost like a sprite.

Does anyone know what type of car is used in episode one?
