Want to know more about Outlander actress Sera-Lys McArthur? She shares about her favorite show, guilty pleasure, celebrity crush and much more.
Outlander Cast founders Mary & Blake recently had the pleasure of speaking on Outlander Cast with Outlander actress Sera-Lys McArthur. You’ll remember her memorable turn as Johiehon, the Mohawk woman who met a fiery end in Season 4’s “Providence.”
We interviewed Sera-Lys for the podcast, and you can listen to the audio interview here. But as we’ve done in the past, we wanted to bring you an exclusive to the blog exploring personal questions with Sera-Lys that were not included the original interview.
Sera-Lys McArthur (SLM): Raspberries.
OC: Personal vice?
OC: Last song you listened to?
SLM: Hmmm…oddly enough…“Adagio For Strings!”
OC: First concert you ever attended?
SLM: Christina Aguilera!
OC: First album you ever owned?
SLM: Tina Turner – Greatest Hits.
OC: Favorite movie?
SLM: Pulp Fiction.
OC: Favorite TV show that isn’t Outlander?
OC: First celebrity crush?
SLM: Jonathan Taylor Thomas! Oh man, I just dated myself. Haha!
OC: The one person that would be a dream to work with?
SLM: God there are so many! I would say if I had to choose – this is not fair! – I would say Dame Judi Dench. I figure I could learn a few things when I’m on set you know. I would just take notes and observe her! “Could I just watch you? But, not in a creepy way. Maybe just breathe your air?” Haha!
OC: Greatest success?
SLM: Outlander. That’s my most favorite thing I have done so far.
OC: Biggest regret?
SLM: I didn’t take a reading in Theater Bath in Bath, England. I was in school and I thought if I missed school I wouldn’t graduate but I probably would have and I ended up graduating at the top of my class anyway. So, I could have afforded a couple of days off and taken the chance to actually work in England. So I’m glad I finally got my U.K. chance.
OC: If you were not an actress, what’s the one thing you would want to do?
SLM: Ride horses all day! So whatever I would need to do that, I’ll do. Be a rodeo star, maybe?! A horse trainer? Or I even thought, “man, if I was a cop, I’d be one of those horseback cops.”
OC: Lastly, whats the top item on your bucket list?
SLM: Going to Japan.
