Men in Kilts will take viewers on an adventure and Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish discover the rich and complex history of Scotland. They will meet local artisans and experts as well as sampling some of the finest produce Scotland has to offer. While everything in the series will look completely professional, the friends and Outlander co-stars have admitted there’s plenty of footage for a blooper reel.

Graham didn’t hesitate when asked if there were moments didn’t go to plan.

Sam agreed noting that while they include a credit sequence for every episode which shows a blooper, there’s plenty more to share.

The pair both agreed a moment involving sheep shearing was particularly difficult as they didn’t get along with their co-stars.

Sam began: “We tried to include in the credit sequence of every episode, where you get to see a little blooper or a moment.

“There were so many that we kept changing them, when we were doing the final edits. I think the sheep-sheering was a great moment.”

“What a disaster!” Graham added.

Sam continued: “The sheep got away and the sound man’s equipment got trampled on.

“The sheep were jumping over it and there was sheep excrement everywhere. It was just a mess. It was chaos.”

Graham explained: “The sheep really didn’t want to make the TV show, at all.”

“They had it in for us!” Sam told Collider.

Graham went on to add: “And how heavy is a sheep? Wow. They’re not light.

“They’re bloody heavy. Those farmers make it look easy, picking up those things and flinging them around.”
