Outlander star Sam Heughan hints Jamie Fraser could look very different in season 7

Sam Heughan has dropped some major hints that Jamie Fraser could undergo a bit of a transformation at some point in the future.

The Scots actor let slip in a recent interview that he's had some prosthetics applied for a role - and with filming for Outlander season seven currently underway, surely he's referring to his much-loved character in the hit Starz show.

Fans continue to wait out the current Droughtlander in patient style as always as Sam and co-star Caitriona Balfe and the team continue shooting across Scotland.

But they might now be hoping for a new look Jamie when the new series returns to screens, after the star's teasing comments on a recent Amazon Audible interview with host Hollie Newson.

Sam had been talking about how he hopes for a role in The Lord of the Rings franchise one day, as he said: “I’m still desperate to be an elf or a dwarf.

"So if The Rings of Power are still casting, I’m available! I’ve even got a ginger wig if they’re interested.”

Audible host Holly Newson replied: “I can imagine you as an elf.”

Sam then said: “Thank you. Well, I may have had some prosthetics done at some point.

“You might see in the future,” he then hinted. “It was a lot of fun.”

Sam gave no confirmation of when he had the prosthetics fitted but with fans eagerly awaiting the next instalment of the fantasy drama, there are set to be a few dramatic storylines coming up, as reports the Express.

The Highland warrior turned family man could be seriously injured once the battle to protect Fraser’s Ridge resumes at the start of the new season, and he could be set for a tough time as wife Claire is imprisoned hundreds of miles away from the Ridge.

It could also be a possibility that Sam could have donned some old-age makeup for a flash-forward to Jamie and Claire’s final years together.

Balmaclellan-born Sam has a lot of projects on the go at the moment so there are a few places he could be spotted in prosthetics.

He's recently been announced as being involved in PlayStation 4 video game Days Gone and he's also starring alongside Priyanka Chopra and Celine Dion in the upcoming rom-com Love Again.

Outlander seasons 1-6 are available on Starz in the USA and Lionsgate+ via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
