An Interview with Outlander’s own Highland Laddie, Scott Kyle…
A wee exclusive interview with the Scottish actor of Stage and Screen, but there’s more to this actor famed for Outlander.
Can you tell me about your role as Artistic Director at the Bathgate Regal…
As the Artistic Director/Manager of the Regal Community Theatre I am in charge of the day-to-day running of the theatre as well as the artist programming.
What are your favourite things about the job?
I love coming up with creative ideas and ways to improve the theatre and the arts. I would like to spend more time on the more artistic projects but unfortunately managing the theatre takes up most of my time.

Tell me about your dream role and why?
It’s always the next one, most actors will tell you the same thing we just want to be working, I’d be happy to work on anything to be honest.
What was it like working with Ken Loach on The Angels’ Share?
I really enjoyed the whole process and it was one of my ambitions to work with Ken. He makes the kind of movies that I like to go to the cinema to see.

You are famous for your role in Outlander, had you heard of the book or series before you auditioned?
No didn’t know anything about the show, so it was a big eye opener for me.
If you could have play anyone in this series, but not your character who would you like to play and why?
Angus as he was an amazing character brought to life by Mr Stephen Walters who I look up to.
If you could come back for Season 3, how would you like to be brought back?
Quickly! Because most of the episode will be filmed by now so it would be a race against time. Seriously though I would just be happy to go back in.
If you had the choice of a bit part in River City (Scottish soap) or a reboot of Taggart (Scottish cop show) which would you choose?
Ha ha that’s a tough one, but I’ll opt for RC as it’s still running at the moment.
If you could ask yourself any question, what would you ask? What would you answer?
Are you ok Scott? And I would answer I`m better than I used to be! Ha ha
Scott Kyle, as a born and bred Scottish actor, makes his videos about his work and his roles personally loved as the ultimate home sick relieving cure. As the accent is his own, and like Sean Connery, I hope he never loses it and gets a lead role where he can use this accent to his full advantage. I hope this actor gets to work with his idols Streep and Eastwood on a wee project one day soon possibly playing that ultimate Scottish role in movie as Bond, James Bond. Don’t think I’m crazy, it could happen.. it is Hollywood!
A wee disclaimer and personal thank you to Scott Kyle for agreeing to this interview. I would also like to add that Scott kindly personally agreed to me using these videos of his work in my blog and no money changed hands to promote this actor’s work or that of Bathgate Regal Community Theatre. The questions were voluntarily answered by Scott, and all answers are his own.
