“Outlander” season 3 cast member John Bell (Young Ian) recently answered a few questions about his character and the show in an online Q&A. The actor talked about what it was like to film his scenes, as well as other behind-the-scenes titbits. The following article contains minor spoilers from episodes that have aired already.

The role of Young Ian is only expected to grow from here. When asked to describe his character, Bell said he was “curious, suggestive, compassionate, understanding, and of course a trouble magnet!” The actor loves being a part of the show and said that every day on the set is “an absolute joy.”

Bell is particularly happy about working in a show that makes “Scotland look gorgeous.” He said he got “teary” after watching their hard work come together in episode 7. The actor revealed that he listens to the theme music of “Last of the Mohicans” to get pumped up before filming.

There were fun moments in episode 7, like the scene in the Print Shop with Brighid (Zoe Barker). Bell said he spent the whole day laughing with his co-star while filming. Another interesting behind-the-scenes tidbit includes getting César Domboy (Fergus) to try haggis pakora, the actor said. Domboy apparently didn’t like the dish.

Bell will be back in season 4, but he hasn’t read too far ahead at the moment. However, he knows there are challenges coming his way in the future. Two pups have already been cast to play the role of the dog Rollo, and Bell has already started training with them to make the filming go smoothly next year.

As far as season 3 is concerned, Bell promised interesting dialogue from him that fans can look forward to. When asked to tease what will happen next episode, the actor said, “Oh honey, there’s a storm coming.”
