When the Starlight Ends is movie completely up my alley and will be on my must-see list! I am really looking forward to seeing it, especially after this little bit from Sam Heughan in a video posted by ET Canada.
Outlander returns to Showcase this Sunday, Apr. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT with the second half of its first season, which means star Sam Heughan will send hearts racing again as sexy Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser.
Last week Sam dropped by the ET Canada studio to talk about the return of the acclaimed time-travelling series, and this week we visit the set of his latest project, When the Starlight Ends.
In the dark comedy, Sam plays a depressed writer. He admits that his new role does have a silver lining: the wardrobe, which is far less cumbersome than being costumed as a 17th-century Scotsman.
“I get to put on a t-shirt, which is fantastic,” he gushes. “There’s no layers of mud and grime that the highlanders wear in Outlander.”
When the Starlight Ends finds Sam in the role of a struggling writer trying to rewrite his lovelife, and his leading lady is played by Arabella Oz — daughter of TV M.D. Dr. Oz.
“My dad is always supportive,” says Arabella of her famous father, who encouraged her showbiz aspirations. “As long as you’re going for it and giving it 100 per cent, he’s up for it.”
Arabella admits that when she first met her co-star, she couldn’t believe that someone that handsome could also be so down to earth. “Something needs to be wrong because you’re too good looking to be this nice,” she recalls, adding, “and he is that nice.”
