outlander season 3 2017

Sam Heughan might be a global megastar now, but he still hasnt forgotten the fight he had with Outlanders producers over a nude scene early in the shows run.

The 42yearold Scottish star recalled how hefelt betrayed after he was asked to do a nude scene shortly after filming a sexual assault scene in which his character suffered sexual violence.

It was very uncomfortable and it was just very insensitive, he told Varietys Super Saturday.

He said that he and the shows producershad a huge fight about it after which he asked producers not todo it in a way that was exploitative or sexual.

Although he did not go into further detail, he made it clear that he was uncomfortable with the entire concept.I was like,OK, we can do this, but lets do it tastefully, he said.
