Sam Heughan shares 'strangest crew photo' after filming wraps on new movie


Sam Heughan has shared the “strangest” crew picture after filming wrapped on the star-studded coronavirus regulated set of new film Text 4 You.

The Outlander actor is appearing alongside Celine Dion and Priyanka Chopra-Jonas in the romantic drama by Sony.

Posting a snap of those who worked on the movie, decked out in facemasks, Sam expressed how surreal his experience had been in his first Hollywood project since the pandemic began.

He said: “Strangest crew photo I’ve had yet but despite the circumstances I think we managed to make a funny, touching and heartwarming movie, all down to the amazing cast and crew who worked so hard during these strange times. Thank you all!x”

In November, we reported Sam delighted fans with his first look at the movie, sharing a picture of him joking around with Being Human’s Russell Tovey.

Lydia West, who starred with Tovey in BBC drama Years and Years, was also captured in the fun snap.

Sam, 40, will play the lead opposite Chopra-Jonas in the movie, which also features the singing and acting talents of megastar Celine.




Text for You (working title) is based on a hit 2016 German film, SMS Fur Dich, itself based on Sofie Cramer’s novel of the same name.

It is the tale of a woman who loses her fiancé and, in an attempt to deal with her pain, sends romantic texts to his old mobile phone.

But the number has been reassigned and the recipient of the texts is a man who’s also going through heartbreak.

An excited Sam, who was born and brought up in Dumfries and Galloway, suggested to fans he was more than happy to get back to acting after the coronavirus pandemic.

He joked: “Filming has started on #Text4You and we are having a MISERABLE time….
Just wait until @priyankachopra and @celinedion join the production (I mean party)!!”

It’s not been much of a quiet time for the star.

During the recent lockdown he managed to secure two new UK and US release dates for his Sassenach whisky.

And earlier this month he celebrated the launch of new best-selling book Clanlands, which he co-wrote fellow Outlander favourite, Graham McTavish.

Yesterday we revealed a full trailer for the pair’s long-awaited Men in Kilts docuseries has been released for the first time.

The series will see the stars travel across Scotland in a camper van as they showcase the best that their homeland has to offer in food, music and history.

It will be released as an eight-episode series with the first being aired on Valentine’s Day.

The show, which has been described as a “love letter to Scotland”, was shot last year between filming for Outlander.
