Outlander author Diana Gabaldan recently revealed that long before the hit Starz show was on television, she had two other actors in mind to play Jamie.

Diana explained in a resurfaced interview that she was originally approached about adapting the book series into a film, and she had two great actors in mind.

Caitriona Balfe also stars in the show as Claire.
