Too much time around vampires? That may be the case for True Blood actor Jim Parrack, who recently admitted he like to indulge in drinking a bit of real blood.
After mentioning this at the opening last March of Broadway's Of Mice and Men, Parrack confirmed he wasn't kidding when he reiterated his taste for blood in a recent interview with Vulture.
"I was being literal. I like the real deal," the actor said, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's quenching his thirst every day.
"The last time I was here, Frank and I simply took a car," remarks Claire (Caitriona Balfe) as she looks up at the gloomy Castle Leoch on Saturday's episode of Outlander. In 1945, the trip from Inverness was a matter of hours. But in 1743, it takes days. Claire has no idea where she is, nor how to get back to the standing stones that transported her in time.
Walking through the halls of dark castle, she gets flashes of her visit with Frank. As Claire tends to Jamie's wounds, she wonders what her husband must think of her. Is she injured? Is she dead? Or has she just left him for another man? Claire breaks down in tears when Jamie (Sam Heughan) brings up her husband. "Is he not alive?" he asks. No, Claire answers. And he's not. Yet.
Jamie leaves Claire to get some sleep, which she does until she's rudely awakened by Mrs. Fitz, Castle Leoch's chatelaine. The older woman helps Claire get dressed, marveling over the younger's brassiere. "It's from France," Claire explains. Mrs. Fitz (Annette Badland) seems unimpressed.
We already know that Sam Heughan is a breakout star on Outlander, an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's best-selling book series. But there's a lot more to learn – and love! – about the Scottish heartthrob who plays the dashing Jamie Fraser.
