As was to be expected, Showmaster’s London Film & Comic Con (LFCC) had to take the difficult decision to postpone their main convention event this summer due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The event will now take place from 20 – 22 November 2020 at Olympia London.

Andrew Gower has already been re-confirmed as a guest (attending Saturday only!), as well as fellow Carnival Row actor Simon McBurney (Runyan Millworthy), Sacha Dhawan (Being Human‘s Pete) and Riz Ahmed (Out of Darkness) with more announcements expected soon.

If you already have a ticket for the event, this will be automatically transferred to the new date. If you can’t attend the event on the new dates, please e-mail Showmasters to receive a voucher which will be good to use for any future Showmasters events up until the day after LFCC 2021 (26 July 2021). At that point, you can request a full refund, should you have not been able to use your voucher.

Tickets sales will be available shortly again for the event and photo op tickets (£20) for Andrew. Autograph tickets (£20) can be purchased at the event itself.

Don’t miss this opportunity for all Miss Scarlet and The Duke, Carnival Row, Poldark, Outlander and Being Human fans to meet Andrew, the man behind Rupert Parker, Ezra Spurnrose, James Hadfield, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Cutler… Nick Cutler.

Exclusive Q&A with Andrew Gower

h3ag2205 (222)

With most of us in some form of quarantine during the Covid-19 epidemic, we hope the follwing interview will provide some welcome distraction. Andrew Gower graciously agreed to answer a few questions for us earlier this week – little did he know how many there would be! He answered all of them nonetheless and we cannot thank him enough for his time and patience!

We hope you enjoy reading this as much as we did coming up with questions and covering “a bit of everything”.


First things first: How are you?

Right now, I feel like I should be asking all of you … how you are? … but I shall answer your question : despite the craziness of the world right now – I’m well thank you and healthy. Self isolating in London. In a VERY clean flat.

This question needs to be asked: On a scale from 1-10, how weird or how awesome is it for you to have your own small fanbase?

10 for awesomeness. The weirdness has worn away.

Do you remember the first time someone asked you for your autograph?

The first autograph I ever signed was at a cinema in Angel – the person sat next to me thought I was Andy Murray.

You’re not very active on Social Media. What changed your mind about joining Instagram? Do you have a preference?

I love Twitter for football. All Everton news. That’s a daily go to. I do like to post random photos or music on both – sporadically. I think it’s a nice way to share work you’re passionate about. But I’ve definitely made a conscious effort to spend less time on them. Nothing wrong with a bit of mystery.

1984-rehearsals-01

Tell us something about Andrew, the actor: when you’re filming, what’s the first thing you do when you come on set? Do you have a special routine?

This changes from set to set … or whatever scenes I’m filming that day. But I’d say a common go to is a cup of black coffee or at a push a red bush tea.

Is it as hard for you as it is for us fans to wait for a new film or TV series to come out after you’ve wrapped filming?

Part of the fun of wrapping a project is knowing that when it comes out you’ll be in a completely different headspace/another role 🤞. There’s something magical about that. Much nicer to be able to watch a project from a distance – not that I’m an avid viewer of my work anyway.

Out of all the characters you played, do you have a favourite?

I really don’t. The joy is being able to think what you can play next or how you could improve the role you just played/make better for next time.

seriesMurdochMysteries

Probably one of the most beloved characters you’ve played so far is Sherlock Holmes (lovingly nicknamed “Baby Sherlock” by your fans btw) on Murdoch Mysteries. It’s been 7 years and people are still asking if/when you’ll make a comeback. Are you aware there’s even an online petition that asks for your return?

I’m not aware but that’s very lovely to hear.

What would Sherlock Holmes think about Miss Eliza Scarlet?

Probably be incredibly envious of her talents … and hat collection.

Sherlock Holmes, Rupert Parker and Ezra Spurnrose are all Victorian men (even though Ezra isn’t really from the 19th century). Were you able to use some of your research for the other characters?

I’ve definitely had my overdose of Victorian England. Etiquette coming out of my ears. Although with every character I try and approach them with a different mind set or from a different angle – but it definitely helps to have researched a time period.

ad_outlander

One of your fans once commented that it takes “guts and talent” to take on characters like Caligula or Bonnie Prince Charlie. What do you think were some brave choices you made in portraying either character?

That’s lovely to hear. I think one of the main things I took from drama school and from actors I admire … is that we should always be taking risks. Creative risks. Bold choices. Just like Brian Epstein took a risk on 4 lads from Liverpool. Best creative decisions are always risks.

Speaking of Caligula: there were moments when he definitely reminded us on Peter Ustinov’s Nero in the old classic Quo Vadis. Have you ever seen it?

I’ve never seen it. Thanks for the recommendation.

poldark_hfd_runningnaked

Three of the characters you played recently (Tommy Quickly, James Hadfield and Ben Taylor) are all battling (different) mental health issues. Coincidence or is this a topic you particularly liked exploring at that moment?

Honestly, it’s just they’re all really interesting characters on the page. It’s an amazing opportunity to play somebody who faces different day to day obstacles than yourself.

Can you share any news on Running Naked?

The last I heard the final edit is finished.

Iceland, Sweden, the Czech Republic – you filmed in some pretty cold places lately. Which one was your favourite (and do we need to knit some mittens for the future)?

I really couldn’t choose. V lucky to have filmed in all those countries. My mitten game is strong … don’t you worry.

seriesCarnivalRow

Congratulations on a second season for Carnival Row! How does it feel to be back for another season?

It’s great to be back!

Our corner of the internet imploded a little, when you announced your part in the final season of Poldark. To see Mitchell and Cutler unite is probably the biggest dream, Being Human fans never knew they had, come true. How was filming with Aidan Turner?

Great to finally meet Aidan. Was lovely to chat about our time on Being Human and many of the Poldark crew had been on the show too. Joy to see them all!

You recently completed your first film as a producer. Can you tell us something about the experience to be in charge of a project from beginning to end? Would you like to produce again, maybe also direct?

It’s definitely something I’d like to do again. Though like with everything … It’s all about finding the right project and then you’ll NEED to do it.

emerson_monroe

It seems you often manage to include some of your music when you’re acting, for example one of Emerson’s songs is featured in an episode of Monroe. How did that happen?

Our wonderful producer Jennie Scanlon found out I had been in a band and asked if they could use the music for the episode.

Another example is Rob (Black Mirror), who is singing in his car just before the fatal accident. Was that scene improvised?

That was scripted. Charlie Brooker and John Hillcoat were very specific with the song choice.

If you had become a professional football player, which position would you have played? Who’s your favourite player?

Oh best question of the day. I was a delusional central midfielder. Still am. My favourite player is Leighton Baines.

Anything you want to say to your fans?

Thanks so much for all your support and now more than ever please stay safe n at home.

Thanks a million, Andrew, for taking the time and agreeing to answer this really long list of questions. Stay safe and well, and we can’t wait to see you in your upcoming projects!

Listen to Bonnie Prince Andrew

edinburghcastle

Visitors to Edinburgh Castle can now learn all about the building’s rich history by listening to some familiar voices on their audio guide.

Among the prominent voices are Saoirse Ronan, who played Mary Queen of Scots in the movie with the same name, and who will give the visitors insights in the life of Queen Elizabeth I‘s Scottish cousin and rival. Game of Thrones author George RR Martin discusses the “Black Dinner” and how it inspired one of the novels’ most infamous plots.

Other parts are spoken by Scottish writer Ian Rankin and the band The Proclaimers.

It’s no surprise then that Andrew Gower was asked to lend his voice once more to “Bonnie Prince” Charles Edward Stuart, the character he portrayed on the time travel series Outlander.

Just one more reason to visit the Scottish capital!

Is Carnival Row the new Game of Thrones?

carnival-row_cdob

Is Carnival Row the new Game of Thrones? WMagazine thinks so!

In their article, they make a strong case for it:

[U]nlike Thrones, Carnival Row will take place in a vaguely futuristic city (albeit with Victorian-era touches, in a steampunk sort of way), and instead of ongoing wars and battle scenes, it will instead take on the form of a neo-noir mystery. Still, there’s not only enough that appears to be in the show’s DNA (including magical creatures and scheming members of a ruling upper class) to hook Thrones fans, but a few familiar faces from the Thrones cast will appear as well (in addition to veterans of the Outlander, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Misfits franchises).

What is Carnival Row even about?

Essentially, it’s a fantasy series about the tensions of an immigration crisis.

It all takes place in the “neo-Victorian” city of Burgue, a city dominated by humans, but tensions emerge when magical creatures like elves and faeries start fleeing to the city as refugees once war breaks out in their homeland. As seems to be unfortunately natural to humans, they don’t react too kindly to the outsiders. To make matters worse, a bunch of the newly arrived faeries end up murdered, including at least one faerie showgirl in the part of the city known as the titular “Carnival Row.” Most of the humans don’t really seem to care until a lone detective decides to take up the case. [Orlando] Bloom plays that detective, named Rycroft Philostrate, while [Cara] Delevingne plays a faerie known as Vignette Stonemoss.[…]

carnival row

Who else is in the cast?

Indira Varma [Ellaria Sand, Game of Thrones] plays Piety Breakspear, who is described as “the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of the Burgue.” […]

Misfits vet Karla Crome plays another faerie with a gift for poetry who is forced to work in a brothel to survive.

Our Andrew Gower gets a mention, too!

[…] Tamzin Merchant [Running Naked, Ark], the actress who was originally cast as Daenerys in Throne‘s ill-fated original pilot episode, also has a major role.

Merchant (Salem) and Andrew Gower (Outlander) play brother and sister Imogen and Ezra Spurnrose. They hail from a wealthy family that’s falling on tough times, so they enter a business deal with a “Puck” who has moved across the street. And, in a bit of a taboo move, Imogen may or may not be falling in love with that Puck.

7 Casting Decisions That Hurt Outlander (And 13 That Saved It)

ol_andrewgower_still

Screenrant have published a list of “7 Casting Decisions That Hurt Outlander (And 13 That Saved It)” and while we do not agree with all their assessments, we strongly support their view of Andrew Gower‘s performance as Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Saved It: Andrew Gower As Bonnie Prince Charlie

Prince Charles led the Jacobite Rebellion in 18th-century Scotland and inevitably failed in his mission to take the crown. Outlander needed to find the perfect actor to play the Bonnie Prince, and they found him in none other than Andrew Gower.

Gower showed off his acting chops as the Prince and emulated his privilege, wealth, and flamboyancy in every movement and every word. It was, quite honestly, a damn shame when his role was over by the beginning of season 3 because he was just so fun to watch. But much like the real Prince Charlie, the character’s time in Scotland was over, and it was time for everyone else to move on, too.

We could not have said it better ourselves 👏 and we cannot wait what the future holds for our bonnie Andrew but we are sure they will be bigger and better things than what was in store for his alter ego Prince Charlie.

Outlander 3×01 The Battle Joined

OL301x0001

Outlander 3×01 The Battle Joined

The episode opens with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) waking up after the Battle of Culloden. In flashbacks he remembers the moments leading up to the battle, standing next to Bonnie Prince Charlie (Andrew Gower), the charge of the Highland army and his final encounter with Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) on the battlefield.

In 1948, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Frank (Tobias Menzies) are settling into life in Boston. Despite trying her best, Claire finds it increasingly difficult to adjust to modern amenities and the life of a respected wife of a Harvard professor. Tensions between her and Frank rise as they both realize that Claire can’t forget the father of her unborn child.

Back on Culloden Moore in the 18th century, the last remaining Highland soldiers are found by British government troops, who are ordered to execute the survivors. However, the commanding officer, Lord Hal Melton (Sam Hoare), recognizes Jamie as the man who saved his younger brother’s life and reluctantly repays his brother’s debt of honour.

Andrew Gower On Playing Winston Smith In 1984

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.

Outlander 2×13 Dragonfly in Amber

Outlander 2×13 Dragonfly in Amber

The final episode of Outlander’s second series opens in Scotland in 1968 where a grown-up Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin) attends the wake of his recently deceased stepfather. Amongst those paying their respects to the late Reverend are also a visibly aged Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her adult daughter, Brianna (Sophie Skelton).

Back in 18th century Scotland the morning of the Battle of Culloden has come. Jamie (Sam Heughan) fails in his last desperate attempt to sway the Prince’s (Andrew Gower) decision to postpone the attack. Jamie and Claire are discussion taking more drastic steps to stop the onslaught from happening when they are interrupted by Jamie’s uncle Dougal (Graham McTavish).

When Jamie realizes that they have run out of options and history will take its course, he uses the last hours before the battle to make sure at least his loved ones and those under his protection are provided for: he sends his men back to his estate Lallybroch and returns with Claire to the stones of Craigh na Dun so she and their unborn child can be safe.

Outlander 2×12 The Hail Mary

Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower) and his rebellious army are back in Scotland and camped near Inverness. Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) join them after their previous detour to the South and are shocked to see the state of the soldiers, only 3 days away from the fateful Battle of Culloden.

While running an errand in the city, Claire is surprised to meet a much changed Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day), who was reunited with her former admirer Alex Randall (Laurence Dobiesz), whose health has gravely deteriorated since Paris. At their quarters more surprises await Claire including another encounter with one Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).

Alex Randall is not the only one whose health has taken a turn for the worse: The Chief of Clan MacKenzie Colum (Gary Lewis) has come to Inverness to ask Claire for one final wish and to have a talk with his younger brother Dougal (Graham McTavish) about the future of their clan. After receiving some secret information, the Prince and his generals make plans for one last ambush on Cumberland’s troops.

Outlander 2×11 Vengeance is Mine

The Jacobite army is camped in Northern England, only 5 days away from London, awaiting decisions from Prince Charles Edward (Andrew Gower) and his generals whether to march on or return back north. When the decision is made, Jamie (Sam Heughan) and his men are ordered to lead the way to Inverness.

On their way, they are ambushed by governement troops and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is separated from the rest. She’s taken to the house of an English nobleman who turns out to be none other than the notorious Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow). At his estate she is also re-united with Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day), the young woman who had been attacked in Paris.

While waiting for Jamie to rescue her, Claire finds out some unpleasant truths about the Duke of Sandringham and his valet, and Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) is finally able to keep a vow he gave to Jamie a long time ago.

Outlander 2×10 Prestonpans

The Highlander army has arrived at Prestonpans and are at an impasse with the British. The Bonnie Prince’s (Andrew Gower) generals are fighting with each other about how to proceed while the men are getting restless waiting for new orders. The War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish) is eager to impress the Prince and volunteers to undertake a potentially suicidal mission.

Thanks to Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) knowledge about the past, Jamie (Sam Heughan) is aware of the importance of the upcoming battle and encourages the Prince to take action when the opportunity presents itself. Claire uses her previous experience as a WW2 combat nurse to organize the treatment of wounded soldiers during and after the battle.

“History” keeps its promise of a Jacobite victory, but not all Highlanders make it out unharmed. While some simply fall from grace, others will have to pay the ultimate price.

Outlander: Graham McTavish & Andrew Gower Talk Prestonpans

Graham_McTavish_Andrew_Gower_and_Sam_Heughan_in.original

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.

Outlander 2×06 Best Laid Schemes

After the difficult decision they had to make at the end of the previous episode Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) are trying to find their way back to a normal married life. They must also find a way to stop the business transaction from happening that threatens to fill Prince Charles’ (Andrew Gower) war chest.

Using Claire’s medical knowledge they come up with a plan, and Jamie, Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) and young Fergus (Romann Berrux) leave to execute it. Claire returns to L’Hôpital to continue her work there with Monsieur Forez (Niall Greig Fulton) who warns her about the consequences for “practitioners of the dark arts”.

Prince Charles is devastated when he learns about their failed undertaking. He feels all his efforts to restore the House of Stuart to the British throne have led to nothing. However, not only his life seems to be in ruins: Claire is in despair when she learns that Jamie has gone back on his promise with dire consequences for both their lives.

Outlander 2×05 Untimely Resurrections

Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) have to deal with the consequences of their dinner party. Mary (Rosie Day) is still recovering from her attack the night before but also hopeful that she is now free to marry her secret admirer Alex Randall (Laurence Dobiesz). A union that could prove fatal to Claire’s first husband Frank (Tobias Menzies).

At his warehouse, Jamie receives a visit from Prince Charles Edward (Andrew Gower) who has found a new business partner in the Comte St. Germain (Stanley Weber). The outcome of their business endeavour could easily be a turning point in the Prince’s goal to unite the Scottish clans and re-claim the British throne for his father.

The Frasers are invited to the gardens of Versailles by the French King Louis (Lionel Lingelser), and Jamie and Claire’s relationship is put to the ultimate test when a ghost from the past comes back to haunt them. Claire is forced to call in a favour that threatens to break them.

Jamie’s spirits are lifted after he learns that Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) is still alive and he has a chance to take vengeance on his former torturer. Thus revigorated, he and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) are finally able to come together as a couple again, when they are disturbed by a nightly visitor.

It is none other than the rightful heir to the British throne, Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower). He had to flee from his lover’s house in a rather un-prince-ly fashion when her husband returned home earlier. From a monkey bite on his hand, Claire deducts that his lover must be her friend Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermonne).

Jamie and Claire decide to use his knowledge and the information Louise had confided in her earlier to expose the Prince as an untrustworthy fool in front of one of his potential financier, the Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow), at a dinner party. Unfortunately, not the entire evening goes according to plan…

Outlander 2×03 Useful Occupations and Deceptions

While Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) days and nights are occupied with running his uncle Jared’s wine business, playing chess with Finance Minister Joseph Duverney (Marc Duret) and befriending Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower), his wife Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is bored with the life of a lady.

Having tea “with the ladies” – neighbour Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermonne) and young Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) – makes Claire feel restless and useless, so when the opportunity presents itself, she is more than happy to offer her help at a local hospital, L’Hôpital des Anges, run by the formidable Mother Hildegard (Frances de la Tour).

Jamie finally manages to arrange the long desired meeting between Duverney and Prince Charles at Maison Elise. At first Duverney seems more interested in the female residents of the brothel when Charles surprises both Jamie and the Minister of Finance with news, that threaten to swat all of the Frasers’ plans.

Outlander 2×02 Not in Scotland Anymore

The historic-fiction drama Outlander is focused on time-travelling WW2 combat nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and her 18th century Highland warrior husband Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). In season 2 they are trying to change history and stop the Jacobite rising of 1745 and the devastating Battle of Cullodon from happening.

The Frasers have just arrived in Paris and are still settling into their new lives when Jamie receives a surprise invitation to meet Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower) in a rather unusual location. The Young Pretender to the British throne is in Paris to raise enough money to support an army.

However, this is easier said than done as the Bonnie Prince is “incognito” in France and can’t be received at court. He needs the help of someone who can negotiate on his behalf with the French Minister of Finance Joseph Duverney (Marc Duret) – and who would be better suited to the task than a loyal Scotsman like Jamie Fraser?
