Outlander: The History vs. Fiction of Bonnie Prince Charlie

Outlander Season 2 2016

In an interview with IGN.com, showrunner Ron D. Moore and lead actor Sam Heughan discuss the obstacles that the Frasers will have to face in season 2 of Outlander, including one Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

In the lead-up to shooting Season 2, Heughan was “really excited” to meet Outlander’s version of Bonnie Prince Charlie, a person he sang songs about as a child. Heughan has nothing but high praise for the actor who plays Charles, Andrew Gower, but admits that it was very strange to have his first scene opposite the character be set in a brothel with prostitutes swinging around massive dildos.

“I think that was the first scene I shot with him. It’s totally bizarre. Those dildos, they were quite magnificent,” Heughan said wryly. “Gary Steele, the designer, has done a great job with them. Of course they’re life size as well and very realistic. There was a moment where Charlie has one rubbed on his shoulder, and it’s great.”
