« I’m loving doing Outlander. We’ve got a great cast and we’re up in the Scottish Highlands. […] It’s big budget, they’re spending a lot of money on it. They’re going for a very gritty and realistic portrayal of the Highlands and I play Dougal MacKenzie, the War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie. As that implies, he’s quite the serious character. There’s lots of political intrigue, there’s romance, there’s adventure and action and there’s time-travel.”
— Graham McTavish –
Hobbit : Renowned as a great Warrior, Dwalin speaks his mind plainly and is not one to suffer fools lightly. Fiercely loyal, he was Thorin Oakenshield’s staunchest supporter with an unshakeable belief in his friend’s leadership. A powerful and bruising fighter, Dwalin has a natural tendency to distrust anyone who is not a Dwarf and is particularly suspicious of Elves. Proud, brave and one of the tallest of the Dwarves, Dwalin will bow to none but those who have earned his respect.
Outlander – Graham is – Dougal MacKenzie –
Dougal MacKenzie is the War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie. His older brother Colum is the ruling Laird but would be nothing without Dougal, his loyal right hand. He is a skilled and experienced warrior. A strong leader, he commands respect in any setting and is feared by many. Unlike his brother, Dougal secretly supports the rebel cause against the British.
Interview: Graham McTavish / THE HOBBIT:
If you were stranded on a desert island with one book for company, what would it be?
The Wind in the Willows
Simpsons or Futurama?
Dwarves or Hobbits?
Dwarves! Of course!
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Truth or Beauty?

Speaking to SpoilerTV, McTavish said: « He’s a great character because he is complicated. He is manipulative and has his own agenda – to restore the Stewart monarchy – but he also has this love for Jaime – even while he’s plotting to kill him, he saves him.
« He’s also capable of great compassion. »
