“I am constantly amazed by people on Facebook who say, “Well, I don’t like that actor. He doesn’t look like Jamie in my head.” And I say, “Exactly how would the producers figure out what is in your head?” What would they say to the other 7 million people who have their own individual notions of what he looks like? Actors act. It’s magic what they do, as much as what I do is. It does not matter, beyond certain crude physical parameters, what they look like. Their job is to become this character. And I have in fact seen Sam Heughan become Jamie and Caitriona Balfe become Claire right before my eyes. It was an astonishing transformation.” Diana Gabaldon
"You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it."
