How was Uni-versal Extras Involved?
Uni-versal Extras was an extras agency for the Outlander TV series filming in Scotland and England. The company supplied extras and walk-ons for a variety of different roles for the two different time periods in which the show is set. This therefore required extras to wear diverse period costumes.
Based in the serenity of rural Scotland, Outlander filmed in locations including Cumbernauld, Newtonmore and Aberdour. Some scenes were also shot in Cumbria in England.
