Sam’s Recommendations

Music

We asked on Twitter what bands he listens to and he provided a bunch of them for us, so now we can build our own Sam Playlists. *grin*

Television

He’s only mentioned one show so far that I’ve seen. But I’ll add more if any get mentioned.

  • Game of Thrones

Actors

  • He recommended Tim Downie as the next Hottie of the Week for E!News and the Heughligans are trying to make it happen. His exact words: “Sad to have to retire from #HottieOfTheWeek Thanks #outlander fans! Haha, I nominate @TimDownie1 as next weeks ‘bit of english crumpet’..x”

    • We aren’t nerds. We are geeks. Joss Whedon and Game of Thrones and Firefly, Fars cape, Star Wars and Star Trek. Geeks I tell ya’!

    • Many men wear pinkie rings with their initials engraved on them. Usually “old money” White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs) (often handed down from one generation to the next, but also worn by “wannabes” – lawyers, Wall Street types, etc. It’s a very old tradition. Originally they were used to “seal” their letters. Their initials or symbol showed that they were actually the person sending the letter. If the “seal” was broken it was obvious someone had opened the letter before the intended addressee.

  1. This lad suggested some great tunes! I really enjoyed checking them out. Lovely to hear some Scotland artists that I haven’t heard of here in the USA. It is so refreshing to see a lot of talented actors on Outlander, from all over the world, that I haven’t seen before. Thank you for sharing this music list. Very Fun Discovery Journey!!!! I will be purchasing some of them.

  2. Is Sam Heughan gay? I have read it a lot on the Internet and he wears a pinky ring. He is a wonderful actor bringing JAMMF to life. Just wondering… no judgment.

    • No he isn’t gay. Diana Gabaldon herself has firmly said so. There’s a lot of info on the web about women he has dated. Wish these rumors would stop

      • Well if DG says it, then it must be true! 😉😁 Because there is such a strong fan base for Outlander, 20+ years (books) and now the show series and the majority being women in their 40’s plus….they want to keep his lifestyle a secret and egg these women on. I hate to say it, but I think it would ruin the show for many, sad but true. I have never seen ‘shippers’ as crazy as the ones I see with Sam and Cait…it is crazy scary! In my heart I think that Sam is gay, or at least Bi…doesn’t matter to me as I am in love with JAMMF, not Sam lol! Just keep doing what you’re doing SH…you’re wonderful!

    • I wonder as well. He and Catriona seem to have such good chemistry; it’s very surprising they are not a couple. My only guess is that he is gay. Then seeing that he has chosen several gay roles, really makes me want some real confirmation or denial. No judgment, just want to know.

      • I think he is Gay,and I wish he would come out,i’ve seen some comments he has made to other men on Twitter,and only a Gay man would say to another Gay man,like Wow!F man,I almost saw your C,you were good,I’ll give you a 9/10,also talking about his ass,Sam said I didn’t know you noticed,the other Guy SW,said oh! I noticed,I just didn’t say anything,now he is GAY!!!!

  3. My guess is yes. I mean no gf, except those young ones they put him with just to be seen from time to time. They should let him be himself. Would rather see him come out than run around with fake dates.

    • Seriously.. Is he gay..amazing how people read things..if he is..he is..if he isn’t he isn’t. You can’t take away he is an amazing actor who has said many times he likes roles that challenge him..why are people so concerned with his sexual preference. Wow.

      • I believe it’s because people would like to think they have a chance
        with him. Ya for sure, a snowballs chance.

    • It is very hard for me to totally wrap my mind around the idea that Sam is gay, although I do wonder sometimes. 1) He is very convincing acting in love scenes with Caitriona. 2) How could he live a gay lifestyle without somebody leaking it to the press? It’s too big to hide. That said, the mere fact that Caitriona has no interest in a romantic relationship with a man who millions of women worldwide think is so desirable makes me wonder if maybe the reason is that he is gay.

      • Don’t know if Sam is gay or not. Don’t care. Although I still can dream. (I’m 71 with nothing but dreams!) But I will say: many gay actors play straight characters and vice versa. It’s the acting that counts. Matthew MacConaughy won Oscar for playing a gay man. Sam is a great actor who plays the role of Jamie as romantic, brave, sexual, tender, and strong. Simply playing a gay character in a production, means nothing. If you’re straight and play gay, it just means you’re a great actor. And how do we know Caitroina Balfe isn’t gay? Why hasn’t she ever been married, never had a child, has obscure arm candy on occasion? What if Sam is shy? Prefers the outdoors to hanging in pubs with sycophants? Doesn’t like “flings”? Is waiting for the “right” woman – like Jamie? Give the guy a break!

  4. I do believe he is gay Caitrina Balfe outs him constantly, every interview they have, look at her Twitter she has Sam in a dress saying “Princess for a day”. Even on screen in outlander, went worth scene, take a look at Sams acting last scene, Sams face during intimacy with BJR was more expressive then when Jamie and Claire got together. I think maybe Ron Moore description of Jamie Fraser as King of Men is correct, just not for women!

  5. Have been listening to “Frightened Ranbit” and “We were promised jetpack” songs and I loved it!
    Sam do have great taste in music 👍
    Great artists! Thanks for sharing this recommendations!

  6. Sam is a very good actor. I enJoy him as jamie. I want to believe that he
    Is straight. We have no control over the situation. That’s something he will
    Have to give an account of not us. I wish him well.

    • Excellent actor in multiple roles, but gives an especially nuanced, sensitive performance in The Outlander. What is important is that he has enough skill and real life experience to convey passion, strength, tenderness and humor.

    • Pinkie rings have been worn by men for centuries and still are. They are engraved with one’s initials or symbol and were used to impress one’s seal on the wax dripped on their letters or other communications to prove they were who they represented themselves to be. If the “seal” was broken the recipient would know that someone else had opened the letter.
