Did You Know?
The outdoors sex scene by the river between Claire and Jaime in the Season 4 was re-shot because the first version did not have any nudity as it was actually shot in Scotland in November during the winter. Caitriona Balfe
said, "We were fully clothed, and we tried to make it as sexy as possible but I think they decided it wasn't sexy enough." The scene was re-shot at the end of the season when Scottish temperatures were a bit more cooperative. Balfe noted, "You can do something a little bit more nude at that time" about the warmer temperature. In the steamier re-shot scene, Balfe is topless and Sam Heughan
appears shirtless showing off his muscular physique. See more
The opening song changes from season to season to reflect what's happening in the story line. In the first half of Season 2 (which is set in France), part of the lyrics are in French. In the second half of Season 2 (which is mostly about preparing for war), there is a militaristic drum roll added to the opening song. During Season 3, there are tribal drums added because much of the season is set in the West Indies. In Season 4, bluegrass fiddle and banjos are added, plus some of the lyrics are sung with a Southern accent because the season is set mostly in America. See more
