Outlander: Bonnie Prince Charlie star addresses return as ‘odd’

The Daily Express released an exclusive interview with Andrew Gower in which they talked about his return to hit series Outlander and his iconic role as Bonnie Prince Charlie as well as the upcoming release of his first EP The Jacaranda with his band Gustaffson.

It was so nice to be able to bookend that whole journey and because myself and Sam Heughan, a few of the cast, had always spoken about Bonnie Prince Charlie’s journey, how he dressed up as Betty Burke and left Scotland. It was really special to be back. Odd going back to a character after so long.

The amazing thing about being an actor is the older we get, we change and are influenced by different things. So, I think definitely Bonnie Prince Charlie definitely aged a little bit in the Scottish countryside.

I’ve always written music since I was 16. I was in bands in Liverpool. I did the Cavern many a time.

But I had started songwriting again during lockdown and [Elbow‘s] Craig [Potter] caught wind of these tracks after having just filmed together on Running Naked and basically he asked me whether I wanted to make my EP with him. I fell to my knees in my kitchen.
