It’s been almost two years since Starz announced he would be playing iconic Jamie Fraser, and the over one hundred thousand Twitter followers and sixty-eight thousand Instagram subscribers to his accounts light candles in honor of the network.
How many of us wait to see if he posts a hiking pic, wishes a happy birthday to someone’s eighty-nine year old grandmother, thanks fans for bringing cupcakes to a closed set off in some remote part of Scotland that not even Google Earth knows about, or finally admits his undying love for________________? (You fill in the blank. It could be
*It’s actually mine. I’ve even created our celebrity hybrid name: Jam. It was either that or Salie.
And when he does interviews, fans hang on to every single word, dissect it, and create gifs and Pinterest quotes that are used as profile pics and smartphone backgrounds. (Who needs a picture on your computer desktop at work of your children in color coordinating outfits when you found a Heughan ass shot from “The Wedding”?)
I may or may not have this picture at my work desk with my face superimposed over Claire’s.
Some responses and tweets made you fall in love with the then little known actor and understand why Ron D. Moore found our Jamie:
Jamie, for me, feels like kind of a culmination of a lot of other characters I’ve played….I don’t know if I could have played this a year ago, maybe two years ago I couldn’t have done it….It just feels that everything came into alignment and fell into place. But obviously you draw upon as much as yourself as possible. So hopefully you’ll see the Jamie you all know and love but hopefully, he’s my Jamie as well as yours.”
(Puts chin in hands and bats her eyes) Oh, Sam.
Others made you shake your head saying, “Oh, Sam. No,” do a spit take, or simply hide your computer or smartphone screen for fear you would be charged with public indecency.
Whether it was accidentally tweeting out birthday porn to Caitriona Balfe, “confessing” his shower routine, or encouraging multiple peak reaching, Sam had many of us fanning ourselves and having fantasies starring him, mountain climbing gear, spinning dirks, and a bottle of aged whisky. (I admit nothing.)
So, to help give those fantasies a tad bit of reality, we went to the man himself. Actually, I scoured through his interviews and tweets, but close enough.
Get ready because it’s unintentional pillow talk with Sam Heughan. Or, for the more blunt: Shit Sam says in bed.
So, cue up that imagination, silence that phone (unless Sam tweets again), and let Sam Heughan show you how the Scots do seduction.
Talk Dirty to Me
Go to 7:35 in this video. Okay, whom am I kidding? You’re going to watch the whole damn thing.
Thank you, San Diego Comic Con 2014 Outlander panel moderator for making Sam say “mo chridhe” again. His breathy interpretation made Scottish Gaelic sound like the intro to a Marvin Gaye song.
Laughing is a side effect of a Sam Heughan afterglow.
For this moment of pillow talk, scroll to 1:24:46. You’ll thank me later.
Okay, I’m thoroughly convinced that whisky is Scottish Drakkar Noir.
Who Needs a Bed?
Sweet Lord, take me now.
I bet he sings Jodeci’s “Come & Talk to Me” in the shower. And it’s beautiful.
He Knows How to Set the Mood…
Three Xs? Best. Birthday. Ever.
On a separate note, shout out to Tobias Menzies and this tweet:
He’s Into Role Playing.
And my name would be “Tap In.”
Confession time: how many of you offered to be his sparring partner?
So. Many. Peaks.
Okay, before I go through this, let me just note that I think it’s awesome that Sam supports this charitable cause. Fantastic job, Sam!
But here at That’s Normal, we appreciate the blitz used to spread the word about #MyPeakChallenge: images of sweaty Sam. Sweaty Sam boxing with a stubby ponytail. Sweaty Sam running. Sweaty Sam squatting. Sweaty Sam and his shoulders that clearly need a deep rub down after such a long workout.
Never in my entire life have I been jealous of a water bottle until this video was unleashed.
And then came the “peak” tweets. Some from him, and others retweeted by him. And it was an avalanche of sexual innuendo that left many of us reaching for a cigarette when we don’t smoke.
Sam wants me to join him? He cares about my peak? He wants to reach it together?!
That’s true love.
What Sam Heughan pillow talk makes you blush? Which of his tweets or interviews have left you feeling some major afterglow? Let us know in the comments!
