Starz Teases Outlander Fans With 'Jamie Fraser Up Close And Personal' Video

"Why should Claire be the only one to see the verra fine form of Jamie Fraser up close and personal?" Starz asked Outlander Fans, before delivering this video, titled "Jamie Fraser Up Close and Personal." And it's well... just watch...



That's undoubtedly an April Fool's joke from Starz, as we're sure they knew how excited fans of Diana Gabaldon's novel were at the prospect of seeing more Jamie Fraser. And instead of the hunky Sam Heughan looking shirtless and dreamy, we get #RandallRolled! In fairness to Tobias Menzies, he's kind of dreamy in his own way, but that hat isn't really doing it for me. Points to Starz for the joke and mild apologies from us for going along with it!

The video was posted on the Outlander Facebook page with a video that previewed a photo of Jamie Fraser (Heughan) shirtless by the fire while Claire (Caitriona Balfe) tends to his wounds. But the video is actually10 seconds of pure Jack Randall, the antagonist of this story. Those not paying attention to the date might have hoped Starz was revealing a new glimpse of the series. And given that the premium cable network has been pretty great about delivering new content for Ronald D. Moore's adaptation of the story, it would be easy to fall for this joke. Good one, Starz!

UPDATE: Looks like Starz has made amends for their little prank and have given us a new still!



Looks like Jamie's in the stable, probably tending to the horses.

Based on Gabaldon's novels, Outlander centers on Claire Randall, a WWII combat nurse who's on vacation in Scotland with her husband Frank when she visits a strange rock formation and finds herself through back through time to 18th century war torn Scotland. It's there that she's eventually forced to marry the gallant young warrior Jamie Fraser. Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore is adapting the series, which is filming in Scotland and will air on Starz this Summer -- still no official premiere date set.

While the new video isn't really a new look at the series, Starz has continued to share some fun photos on their Instagram account, and since it's been a while since we've done a photo round-up, let's take a look at the most recent ones...

I like to imagine this umbrella can be sheathed like a blade or a sword...



And here we have a look at Claire and Frank, out for a ride...



Some smiles between Caitriona Balfe and Gary Lewis and Graham McTavish, who play Colum and Dougal MacKenzie respectively...



The caption for this photo says Graham and Gary have surprised Caitriona with a "Claire-sized portion of Rhenish."

For those who still want more Jamie Fraser, here's the last actual Outlander teaser released...
