Outlander’s Sam Heughan explains dangerous and ‘illegal’ Jamie Fraser kilt scene


This led fans to point out Jamie had worn his kilt in front of redcoat soldiers during the season five opener.

As Outlander is the on screen adaptation of a series of bestselling novels written by Diana Gabaldon, the author responded to fans’ questions.

She noted the English forces weren’t as strict about enforcing the tartan law decades after Culloden: “Nobody cared to enforce a law like that — pointless in the Colonies in 1770-ish.”

In 2019 she tweeted: “Neither was there a large force to spare; the British regulars couldn’t cover even a third of the territory — thus the push to enlist Loyalists to militia companies.”

Outlander is available on Starz in the US and on Starzplay in the UK.
