She continued: "There are things it gets into that are so unbelievable, and scenes that are so heart-rending; I became a complete addict. A lot of our crew also works on Outlander, so I was pumping them all for information or trying to get them to bring Tobias Menzies to come visit our set."

The legendary actress also revealed that she has become quite a fan of lead actor Sam Heughan's blended scotch whisky brand Sassenach Spirits – and has stocked up her top shelf at home with several bottles.
