Sam Heughan revealed one of his dream roles, and it isn’t as a romantic hero like on “Outlander” or a villain in an action movie like “Bloodshot.” The actor revealed he’d like to get back to the theater to take on William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.”

Heughan spoke to “Good Morning America” host Ginger Zee on Instagram Live Wednesday to promote “Men in Kilts: Roadtrip With Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish.” He was asked about what kind of roles he wants in the future, and it turns out that he is hoping to return to his roots.

“I love Macbeth. Actually, in ‘Men in Kilts’ we do visit some interesting places that are connected to the story of Macbeth, whether it’s true or not,” Heughan explained. “There’s a lot of superstition and dark tales that Shakespeare used in Macbeth, [like] witchcraft, which obviously is a big part of Scottish history as well. We explore all of those things. So I think Macbeth.”

The play follows a man who hears a prophecy that he will become King of Scotland. He quickly becomes consumed by the idea and does whatever it takes to get the throne, but guilt and paranoia are inescapable.

Heughan has been in the Shakespeare play before portraying a supporting player, Malcolm. However, he wants to play the titular character next time.

The “Outlander” star also revealed that theater sparked his love for acting.

“I moved to Edinburgh…I really fell in love with theater there and I think that’s where the passion for acting came,” he explained.

The Jamie Fraser actor continued, “Being on television or in movies wasn’t really the goal, but it’s been an amazing journey and I feel very lucky to be part of it.”

Heughan added that he is supporting theaters in Scotland as the community is struggling in the wake of the global health crisis.

On Wednesday, Heughan revealed that “Men in Kilts: Roadtrip With Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish,” formerly known as “Clan Lands,” would air on Starz later this year. The channel is also the U.S. home to “Outlander,” which is said to have massively increased Scottish tourism.
