Before I actually started watching Outlander myself, all I heard from friends was, ‘sex, spanking, nudity!’ And yup, sure enough, there’s a good deal of that on the show so while talking to executive producer Ronald D. Moore and stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Lotte Verbeek for the mid-season premiere, I asked them how they felt about partaking in so much sexy time in front of the camera.

In case you’re an Outlander newcomer, the show isn’t all about shirtless Scots and spankings. The adaptation of the Diana Gabaldon novels centers on Claire Randall (Balfe), a married WWII nurse who travels back in time to 1743, falls for Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Heughan), and you can probably guess what happens next. Catch Moore, Balfe, Heughan and Verbeek’s thoughts on all the sex and nudity in the video interview below and be sure to keep an eye out for more Outlander coverage coming soon.


Here’s the series synopsis for Outlander:

“Outlander” spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure as it follows Claire Randall, a married WWII combat nurse who mistakenly falls back in time to 1743. As the season continues, Claire and Jamie’s relationship is tested and Claire must reconcile her modern mindset with this 18th century world. Ruthless redcoats, volatile clan politics, and a brutal witch trial force Jamie and Claire to escape to a new home. Just when their life as a married couple begins to take shape, Jamie is once again drawn into Captain Randall’s darkness. Ultimately, Claire discovers there is a fate worse than death as she struggles to save Jamie’s heart, as well as his soul.
