The official Outlander Instagram account has shared a funny video of the cast’s impressions of Scots star Sam Heughan’s character Jamie Fraser.
It’s not long now until Droughtlander is over and the show is back on our screens as season seven is set to air on June 16 with an extra long first episode.
So ahead of its return, Starz shared the hilarious clip which includes John Bell, Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Richard Rankin and other fan favourites.
The cast attempt to do their best Scottish accent and copy Jamie Fraser’s iconic way of saying ‘Sassenach’ – with some failing miserably.
In the clip, Sam jokes: “You can’t just say Sassenach. I am a classically trained actor. It comes from the core. Something Shakespearean about it as well.
Caitriona, who plays Claire Fraser in the show, quips: “I don’t think I can do an impression of Sassenach, because I am the Sassenach.”
Sam adds: “It takes many years, you can’t just say Sassenach.”
