Outlander star sparks frenzy with throwback snap from teen years

Outlander’s Catriona Balfe discusses parenting during filming

Outlander star Graham McTavish got sentimental on Thursday, taking part in the #ThrowbackThursday trend to share a snap from his teenage years.

The 62-year-old Scotsman explained in the caption that the year was 1977, making him 16 at the time when he posed leaning against the edge of a car for the black and white snap.

He jokingly wrote: “Me wearing a fetching combo of denim shirt OVER a sweater OVER another shirt.

“Taken by my dear friend Neil Graham outside his house. I’ve still got the watch.”

The Hollywood star poked fun himself poked fun at the biggest difference between his current self and the snap, ending the message with: “#Nobeard1977.”

The teen made a dashing appearance, flaunting his long wavy locks and a tender smile with his arm resting against the roof of a car and showing off the watch wrapped around his wrist.

In true 1970’s fashion, Graham paired a patterned knit sweater with a collared shirt underneath and a denim jacket to match his denim trousers.

Fans fawned over the actor in the comments section, as one declared: “Graham you have such an uncanny resemblance to Spielberg in this pic!!!”

A few took aim at Graham’s follicles, joking that he had swapped the hair on his head for a beard, as one wrote: “I can’t get over the hair! None on your face and a lot on your head. Really cool picture!”

A second dubbed him a “devilishly handsome man” at the time while others argued that he has “aged beautifully”.

The Men In Kilts star was recently replaced on the hit Starz show for season seven of Outlander, alongside some other major casting changes.

Graham originated the character Buck MacKenzie on-screen but the last season of Outlander saw Diarmaid Murtagh taking over the role.

Some fans questioned the movie, especially as Graham also portrayed another MacKenzie family member Dougal, but the series’ casting director Suzanne Smith explained to Daily Express last month that there was a very simple reason.

She assured that Graham “loved Outlander” and the chemistry between him and lead star Sam Hueghan was undeniable as they also share the screen in their own show Men In Kilts.

However, Suzanne noted: “We had to have a younger Buck. That’s the reason.”

Outlander seasons 1-7 are available to stream on Starz in the USA and on Lionsgate+ in the UK.
