Sam Heughan of Outlander discusses his preparation for the next swingers drama.

The performer is Danny, one half of a pair that lives next door to newly arrived residents Pete (Alfred Enoch) and Evie (Eleanor Tomlinson).

As Pete and Evie get close to traffic cop Danny and his wife Becka (Jessica De Gouw), they begin to realize that their new, affluent neighborhood is not what it seems.

During a recent Q&A, Heughan joked that he had "multiple open relationships" in response to questions about his considerable preparation for the role, speaking to Digital Spy and other media.

greater somberly, he went on to say that he had studied traffic cops' life to gain greater insight into his personality.

"On the surface, it's quite regulated but these guys do operate quite independently and they are at the forefront of any traumatic situation," he stated.

I did, however, spend a lot of time talking to a traffic constable up in Scotland, and I found that the most fascinating questions to ask were about the impact on the officer's own mental health and that of his family.

"What a difficult job it is and on the surface can look like the knight in shining armour, but they have to make very, very quick decisions a lot of the time."

Heughan continued, saying that although it was "an interesting aspect" to learn, Danny's work "doesn't define who he is".
