So wha­te­ver age that makes him whenever…that’s what he is. (Any per­cei­ved devi­an­ces may safe­ly be attri­bu­t­ed to copy-editing errors. <g>”

Phy­si­cal Cha­rac­te­ris­tics: 

He has the ele­gan­ce of an athlete’s and the phy­si­que of a war­ri­or; He weighs 15 Stones (210 Ibs) and is 6’4″ tall. He has long grace­ful bones and flat mus­cles that flowed smooth­ly from the cur­ves of chest and shoul­der to the slight con­ca­vi­ties of bel­ly and thigh. The bones are solid and ele­gant shaped shoul­ders broad and strai­ght. The shoul­ders flat and squa­re-set and the back­bone a smooth, strai­ght groo­ve cut deep bet­ween the roun­ded columns of mus­cle that rose on eit­her side of it. He has long legs, hard, slim thighs, sha­pe­ly cal­ves and feet rather lar­ge, but they are lean and bony and thus appe­ar ele­gant.

Pictures from Outlander

His eyes are open and strai­ght out. He has a dis­tinc­tive, fri­end­ly face bright with a big mouth and eyes like sap­phi­res. The eyes radia­te deep lying in dark blue and they are slan­ted, like a cats (always men­tio­ned as Fra­zer eyes) The eyelas­hes are long and thick, but stran­ge­ly colo­red: at the tips of dark maroon, and at the roots very bright, almost straw-blond. He has rough, thick and red­dish eye­brows.

Jamie has wide cheek­bones and an edgy, ener­ge­tic chin. The nose long, strai­ght and sharp cut their teeth even and white.The skin is bright with gol­den glow and healt­hy color. The hair chan­ge depen­ding on the sea­son, but are main­ly cop­per red. In the morning sun shi­ne gol­den red hair and wet they look like old bron­ze. He has very thick hair.

The whis­kers are cop­per and rust, but very soft, even though they feel at the same time brist­ly.

Jamies Hair

He has cin­na­mon-colo­red arm­pit hair and soft hairs on the back­bone, which mer­ge into a red-gold fuzz on but­tocks and thighs in order to even­tual­ly con­den­se into a bush of auburn curls.

Jamie has mus­cu­lar forearms. His hands are big with rich, red­dish hai­ry fin­gers.

It must have been qui­te a beau­ti­ful back at one time. His skin was fair and fresh, and the lines of bone and mus­cle were still solid and grace­ful.

    Oh mein Gott! Er ist wirk­lich der fleisch­ge­wor­de­ne JAMIE! ich hät­te nie gedacht, dass sie einen Schau­spie­ler fin­den, der Mrs. Gabal­dons Beschrei­bung auch nur annä­hernd nahe käme … und dann kam Sam Heu­g­han! Mein Gott!! Es war schon fast unheim­lich ihn zu sehen! Ich hof­fe von gan­zem Her­zen, die Bücher wer­den kom­plett mit ihm wei­ter ver­filmt!!! Tau­send Dank Mr Heu­g­han, dass sie sich für die Rol­le cas­ten lie­ßen! Viel Glück und viel Spaß für die fol­gen­den Sea­sons! ich freu mich sehr drauf!!!
