Those who've been keeping up with the Outlander Instagram know that author Diana Gabaldon has taken over the Starz drama's feed during her trip to Scotland to visit the set of the series. So it's not entirely surprising to learn that she's landed herself a speaking role in the adaptation of her beloved book series. It's not a major role, but it sounds like it'll be a bit bigger than a background spot.
In this trilogy Diana Gabaldon takes a character from the Outlander series and makes him the main character - some of the same stories with additional plot regarding his life. Again, well researched and written. She is able to make the reader care about these characters. Can't wait for more.
