Jamie Fraser – Played by Sam Heughan
Jamie is a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior who marries Claire for her own protection. Armed with sheer grit and enduring strength, he is intelligent, principled and, by 18th century standards, educated and worldly. A natural leader of men, he has no political ambitions or desire for battlefield glories. Instead, he wishes to remove the price on his head and return to his family’s ancestral farm.
