Outlander boss shares details of the 'life-threatening' scene shot twice

In Outlander season seven, a death-defying scene was filmed twice to ensure it felt life-threatening. The scene involved William Ransom, Jamie Fraser's illegitimate son, who is thrown off his horse after it is spooked by a snake. He rolls down a hill and injures his arm on a stick. The scene was safely filmed, with a stuntman and practical effects. Executive producer Matthew B Roberts praised actor Charles Vandervaart for his performance as William Ransom in his debut season. Outlander is available to watch on Starz.
