It has been a struggle for us to deal with Droughtlander. All we can do is rewatch the series or reread the books. In an attempt to keep us all sane, we’ve found just a few of the several movies and tv shows starring the cast of Outlander. While it isn’t the same as a new episode, we will take what we can get.
A Princess For Christmas– I’m sure many of you have heard about this movie. Jules Daly is trying to make Christmas happen for her niece and nephew. However, since their parents’ death, nothing really excites them anymore. That is until a mysterious invitation brings them across the pond and into Sam Heughan’s world. I’ve personally seen this movie and it’s adorable. I plan to watch it many more times. Don’t want to pay for it? Then wait for it to come on the Hallmark Channel on October 30th at 12 pm.
You can rent this movie for $2.99 or buy it for $14.99 on Amazon
First Light- Sam was also in a movie called First Light. This is about a spitfire pilot who entered the war when he was only 18 and how he heroically fought in the battle of Britain. It is a drama documentary and is not a Hollywood glamour version of the war. There is testimony from Geoffrey Wellum, the man Sam plays. Maybe war movies aren’t your thing? This would be a great movie to watch with your significant other. He can watch the war and fighting parts and you can watch Sam! This is trickier to find than A Princess for Christmas.
It is on Amazon in several third party versions but only on DVD. It is also available at FYE, which is a movie store. FYE stands for For Your Entertainment. I do shop at the actual store so I can vouch for its credibility.
Sam has a couple other movies out but I cannot find a way to view them Legally. Those movies are Young Alexander the Great, Emulsion, and Heart of Lightness. If you know where to find them, then please comment on the post.
Caitriona has been in several movies and has held small roles. For example, how many of you have seen Now You See Me? She is in Michael Cane’s character’s entourage. She plays his daughter or wife. I didn’t notice this until I looked hard. The best place to see her is hen they are on the plane to New Orleans. She also has a small roll in Escape Plan with with Sylvester Stallone. Other than that, we have other places to find her.
Money Monster– This is a movie with Julia Roberts and George Clooney (do you need another reason to see this other than these two). Clooney is a tv star and Julia Roberts is his producer.An irate investor in a financial company takes over the show and threatens lives unless a conspiracy is researched and resolved. The lovely Cait is the spokesperson for the financial company that is being blamed for all the issues.
There are some options to watch this movie. You can buy or rent a digital copy on Amazon or you can purchase the actual DVD.
Other than Outlander, I think that Cait is best known for her modeling days. Here are some of our favorites.

Tobias Menzies has a lot of other credits. Any Game of Thrones fans? He plays Edmure Tully, Catelyn Stark’s brother. He is in eight episodes and looks even sexier. To flip to those episodes, he is in Walk of Punishment– season 3 episode 3, Kissed by Fire– season 3 episode 5, The Climb season 3 episide 6, The Bear and the Maiden Fair– season 3 episode 8, The Rains of Castamere– season 3 episdoe 9, Blood of My Blood– season 6 episode 6, The Broken Man– season 6 episode 7, and No one– season 6 episode 8.
You can buy these episodes individually on Amazon. HBO also has a streaming app called HBO Go that you can sign up for if you’re interested in watching the whole thing.
He is also in the show The Night Manager. Let me tell you, this is going on my must watch list. The cast is filled with big names. Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie star in this spy thriller. Hiddleston is recruited by MI-6 to influtrate Laurie’s inner circle of his arms trade business. Menzies plays Geoffrey Dromgoole and is in episodes 2-6. It is a mini series, so he is in all but the first one. He plays a sneaky character as well, so I can’t wait to update you all on this show. Has anyone seen it? I’d love to hear your point of view.
This is available on Amazon.
Menzies is in a lot of different TV shows, to include the Cold War episode of Doctor Who, with small roles. But he does have some new movies coming out like The Underworld: Blood Wars.
We are going to finish our list with the always sexy, Dougal MacKenzie or Graham McTavish. Did you all know he is the voice for several video games? He has worked on all different kinds and portrayed several different voices. He has been in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Assassins Creed III. Might be some fun knowledge to drop on the hubby giving you grief for watching Outlander.
For your Netflix subscribers, Graham has two different movies on there. The first, is The Finest Hours. Two oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard and the Coast Guard goes on a daring rescue mission. Graham plays Frank Fauteux, who is a veteran ship mate to the star, Chris Pine.
It is also on Amazon if you don’t have Netflix.
He is also in Plastic. Two young guys infiltrate a credit card company but they’ve stolen from the wrong man. In order to get the money to pay him back, they need to pull off an amazing diamond heist. McTavish plays the head of an international business but is actually on the wrong end of the guys’ con.
It is also on Amazon if you don’t have Netflix.
Finally, for those of you Tolkien fans out there, McTavish is also a dwarf in the movie series involving The Hobbit. He plays the fierce warrior Dwalin and is in all three movies. He is one of the 12 companions for Bilbo. These are crazy popular movies and you can find them in almost any movie store. Obviously, it’s on Amazon. However, they haven’t graced Netflix with their presence.
Finally, if these movies and shows aren’t enough to keep your spirits up, there is this documentary. It is 92Y: An Outlander Evening with Series Cast, Author, and Producer. Give this a watch on a Saturday night when you’re feeling lonely. You can see your favorite stars and even here Diana’s answers to some questions from Cosmopolitan‘s executive editor.
It’s on Amazon.
While we know we only included some of the places to see our favorite stars, we’d love to hear about your favorites. Is there another Outlander star you like to watch in a different series? Have you seen any of these movies or shows and you’d like to tell us about it? We’d love to hear from you. Comment below or on any of our social media sites.
