Outlander Podcast features Andrew Gower in their episode 156 talking with him about all things Outlander, his character Bonnie Prince Charles Edward Stuart and the upcoming ScotCon.
Andrew’s part covers approx. the first 20mins of the programme.
[Update: Andrew’s appearance at ScotCon was eventually cancelled.]
In this episode, we share our interviews with Outlander composer, Bear McCreary, as well as our very own Bonnie Prince Charlie, Andrew Gower, and learn more about the upcoming ScotCon. We also wrap up our San Diego Comic Con redux and chat with Star Trek’s Jason Matthew Smith and Sharknado 4’s Caroline Williams.
Here’s another interview with Andrew Gower about playing Winston Smith in 1984 and what tempted him to take on the part. Being Human and Outlander (and their loyal fanbases) get a notable mention, too.
You’ve done some beloved dramas, like Being Human and Outlander. What’s the fan response been like?
Yes, both Being Human and Outlander are known for their loyal fanbases. The beauty of both of those jobs was that the characters were very removed from me. So I’ve been lucky to get off scot-free, without any strange encounters. The wigs, blood and strange onscreen faces/voices – they haven’t found their way into my day-to-day life. Yet.

Theatre.com talked to Andrew Gower about playing the lead in 1984 and his time as Cutler on Being Human.
You graduated from drama school [the Oxford School of Drama] six years ago but are only now making your West End debut.
Yeah, which is funny because when I left drama school, I always envisaged that my career would be on stage; I never saw it going down the route of TV and film, so for this to be only my third theater job and in something so incredible and illustrious is really amazing.

Access Hollywood released an interview with Graham McTavish (Dougal McKenzie) and Andrew Gower (Bonnie Prince Charlie) about Outlander episode 2×10 “Prestonpans”.
Graham McTavish was full of praise for his co-star’s acting:
“One of the things that I loved about what Andrew did with the part was how he physically created the Prince,” Graham said, when we asked him about working with the Season 2 “Outlander” actor. […]
“[Andrew] made some really great [acting] choices with that.”
The article also mentions Andrew’s ongoing rehearsals for 1984
in London’s West End.
Access Hollywood conducted a Q&A with Andrew about his role as Prince Charles Edward Stuart on Starz’ hit TV show Outlander.
Andrew (who Sam Heughan has praised, calling him “magnificent in the role”) hit the books before slipping on the salmon-colored silk coat of his “Outlander” character, diving deeply into the details, all the way down to the accent. In a new interview, he told Access Hollywood more about his preparation for the role, and offered insight into his character’s tearful reaction after the loss of the cargo in Saturday night’s episode.
