Outlander's Diana Gabaldon Responds to Starz Executive's Comment About the Show's Female Viewership

Outlander author Diana Gabaldon is responding to some comments made by Starz Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Hirsch regarding female viewership of the series.

Outlander — you can say that it’s great because women like it because she’s a surgeon who goes back in time, but there’s also another side of that, which is there’s some eye candy for that audience and people like when [star Sam Heughan] has his shirt off,” Hirsch said. “You have to be really thoughtful about when you’re looking at a piece of content and whether it’s really going to be female or not. And it’s not easy.”

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe star in the Starz series together. The show follows their gripping love story as Jamie and Claire.

'Outlander' Author Endorses Sam Heughan for James Bond!

A few months ago, Just Jared ran a poll asking fans who they wanted as the next James Bond, and Outlander star Sam Heughan won the poll!

Diana Gabaldon, who wrote the Outlander novels, is totally on board with the idea of Sam playing the super-spy once Daniel Craig is done.

“I have seen that Sam is being tipped for James Bond and I think it would be great,” Diana told the Scotsman.

Sam would do a fine job of it. There is always a lot of talk every time James Bond changes so it’s anybody’s guess. But I don’t think he would have to leave Outlander to be James Bond because the Bond movies are just that, they’re movies,” he added.

Outlander is a television show so it would just be a matter of scheduling,” Diana continued.

Sam then responded on Twitter to Diana‘s kind words!

Outlander's Sam Heughan & Caitriona Balfe Are Not Dating!

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan pose for photos together while attending the Starz Pre-Golden Globe Celebration on Friday (January 8) at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywod, Calif.

The Outlander co-stars were joined by fellow castmate Lotte Verbeek at the event. Earlier in the day, they were joined by series creator Diana Gabaldon at a panel at the 2016 Winter TCA Tour.

The series is nominated at the Golden Globes for Best Television Series – Drama and Caitriona is up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

Sam and Caitriona were interviewed together that day and shot down rumors that they’re a real-life couple.

“We’re not together,” Caitriona told E! News. “It’s funny. We’ve always said from the get go that we’re incredibly great friends. And to have that friendship and that closeness and to be able to get along as we do on set, it’s great that we’re able to get along that well. We’re not together. I’m sorry to break people’s hearts. They like to try to maybe replicate the Claire and Jamie story. But I think it would be difficult for us to work together and be together.”

“No, I think it’s strange, isn’t it?” Sam said about their fans’ hope that they’ll date in real life. “Because I think people buy into the show and us saying it’s not real, they feel like they’ve been duped. It’s like, ‘You acted it. You lied to us!’ And I’m like, ‘Well, sorry!’”

FYI: Caitriona is wearing a Rosetta Getty tuxedo jumpsuit and Tabitha Simmons shoes at the party. She is wearing a Proenza Schouler dress and Bally shoes at the panel. Sam is wearing True Religion jeans and Cesare Paciotti boots at the party.
