Sam Roland Heughan is a Scottish actor of stage, screen, and film productions, and a graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama where he was a 2003 nominee for the Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Performance for his work in the program.[1]

Executive producer Ron Moore stated: "From the very beginning, I knew the part of Jamie Fraser would be difficult to cast. I had no one in mind for the part. I knew that someone would just come into the audition and be Jamie Fraser. And that’s what Sam did."[2]
