We are still knee-deep in the #Droughtlander, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t some great Outlander Season 3 news coming out of the woodwork. One of the nicest things about the cast of Outlander is that all of them seem to be involved in various charitable efforts, and are using their influence earned from the success of the Starz show to raise money for their favorite charitable causes.
As we await the Outlander Season 3 news about Ross’s fate — though it’s most likely that he perished on the field at Culloden, there’s an online effort being made to #SaveRoss — actor Scott Kyle, who brought the beloved Ross to life, is using his newfound fame to bring attention to Regal Theater in Bathgate, Scotland, a community theater where he also serves as a Manager and Artistic Director when he’s not filming for his shows and movies. Realizing the importance of community theater in the development of an actor’s proper career, Kyle said that he’s hoping his high profile will bring some much-needed attention — and funds — to the fledgling stage.
“We use the theatre as a venue for all sort of events, and I hope that by coming here and getting familiar with the venue, people will realise it’s a great place and with fantastic facilities, and be more inclined to come here for a show.”
Scott has set up a donation page for the Regal Theater, which you can find here.

Of course, we don’t have to wait for more Outlander Season 3 news to be released to know what happened to Dougal McKenzie (Jamie, how could you?), but Graham McTavish has been making a name for himself for quite a while now. In fact, perhaps more people know McTavish from Preacher, where he plays the Saint of Killers. But McTavish’s gruff exterior belies a giving heart. Oftentimes, he’ll be seen appearing at various events for charitable causes, and his appearance at St. Andrew’s Pub in New York City on October 8 is no different. The event — produced by Liz Mercado Associates, Outlander Forever, and the Outlander Homepage — is called An Evening With Graham McTavish, and part of the proceeds will go to benefit Action For Children, a non-profit organization which helps children reach their full potential. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
Delighted to be supporting this event… pic.twitter.com/K9dvcVcUWo

Finally, no Outlander Season 3 news — even news about charities — would be complete without mentioning Sam Heughan’s efforts with My Peak Challenge. Created by Heughan in cooperation with Bear Strength Clothing and with the help of John Valbonesi of Fight Camp Glasgow, Heughan told The Box that he’s always been happy to inspire people to work out, even if they otherwise wouldn’t consider doing so.
“I committed to do it for charity, and I managed to encourage about 15 people from the company to do it. A lot of them didn’t really run or they were, like, either actors or acrobats who didn’t run, but they all did it, and every day people were running.”
My Peak Challenge is a charitable effort that raises money for Bloodwise, Heughan’s favorite charity, which is a British charity that supports blood cancer research. MPC, as its known, encourages its participants to set a 60-day weight loss and/or fitness goal, and provides assistance — such as nutritional plans — to help the participants meet their goal.
