Outlander RingCon Recap

The last RingCon of all time has come and gone, escorted out to Con-pasture by the team from Outlander. Stars Sam Heughan, Graham McTavish, Duncan LaCroix, and Gary Lewis were in attendance at this weekend's convention along with Outlander author Diana Gabaldon.

RingCon was held in Bonn, Germany Friday night through Sunday night. Opening ceremonies on Friday featured Gabaldon and Lewis, but Heughan, McTavish and LaCroix did not arrive until the next day.

All weekend there were long lines of fans waiting to have their photo taken with Heughan or get an autograph. The star took at least 700 photos with fans.

Panels at the convention featured Diana Gabaldon by herself and a solo panel with Sam Heughan. Fans had two chances to see the whole Outlander crew together: a panel on Saturday and another on Sunday. We didn't get a whole lot of Outlander news from the panels, but the stars did share some fun information with fans.

McTavish jokingly shared that he doesn't like that Dougal, his character, doesn't have much luck with the female characters. Heughan told fans that future Jamie would like fast cars. Lacroix said he loves "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Gabaldon treated fans to a reading from the new Outlander book she's currently writing. (No, it's not finished yet).


One of the neatest things to come out of RingCon was a fan photo that was tweeted asking Starz and the Outlander producers to "Save Murtagh." Book readers know why this is necessary. The official twitter account for Starz retweeted the photo giving fans hope. They promptly took up a twitter campaign with the hashtag #SaveMurtagh.


Sunday's panel ended with a ringing, "Tulach Ard!" from the whole gang. It is the MacKenzie war cry. Check it out:
There was still an official closing ceremony yet to come, but for the Outlander crew it was the end of their convention. All hopped a plane back to Scotland where they returned for filming the very  next day.
Here are a couple of videos from RingCon which give us a glimpse inside the convention and a brief look at the Outlander panel.
