Graham McTavish was our 2018 Featured Guest!

We are thrilled to host Graham McTavish, the Scottish actor who portrays Dougal MacKenzie, War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, in Diana Gabaldon’s unbelievably popular series, Outlander, now a television drama series currently airing on STARZ.

In addition to his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Dougal, Graham is best known for his roles as Dwalin in the The Hobbit trilogy of films, as well as in the new hit AMC show, Preacher, based on the cult comic series of the same name in which he plays The Saint of Killers.

His career spans a wide variety of roles from acting alongside Sylvester Stallone in both Rambo, and Creed, to Colombiana, Secretariat, The Finest Hours and Green Street Hooligans 2, among many others. He is also familiar to video game fans for his roles in the Uncharted series, Call of Duty, and Dante’s Inferno to name but three. His stage career has taken him from the Royal Court, and National Theatre in London, to the Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh as well as touring the world with his own play about Vincent Van Gogh.

Graham will be available on-site in the Sportplex for autographs and selfies intermittently on Saturday between 1pm and 6pm, and again on Sunday beginning at 1pm following the Scottish Brunch.  Publicity photos (8×10) of Graham, and books from the Outlander series will be available for purchase (but no purchase is required).

Graham is planning to attend the Whisky Tasting at 3pm on Saturday as well as the Massed Band around 5pm. As signing queues permit, Graham may be able to periodically get out to enjoy the festival with other guests. Expect him to pop in at various venues throughout the festival.

On Sunday morning, Graham along with Gillebrìde MacMillan and Douglas Gibson, will be featured at a Scottish Brunch… click the link below to find out more…
