From ET Online:

The sublime Outlander star Caitriona Balfe – who plays heroine Claire Randall – is taking ETonline on the show’s mesmerizing journey from book to screen.

Even with eight episodes already under her belt, the ever-humble Irish actress admits she still hasn’t fully wrapped her head around the fact that she’s the one exploring the world Gabaldon and Outlander showrunner Ron Moore have created.

“Sometimes I’m a little intimidated because I’m like, it’s this whole world she’s created and sometimes I feel like we’re at the beginning of this,” exclaims Balfe, dressed in Claire’s signature garb, in your first look at Outlander: Season 1, Volume 1. There are currently eight published books, with Gabaldon working on her ninth.

“It’s been so nice that she’s been supportive and it’s been so nice to have her there as a source to go to,” the 35-year-old actress adds. In fact, Gabaldon even had a memorable cameo as a guest at The Gathering, an experience the 62-year-old writer wrote about extensively on her website.

Sam Heughan, who woos Claire as rugged Scotsman Jamie Fraser, is equally excited by each turn of the page – as he should be!

“You think you know these characters and by the time you get to book eight [2014’s Written in My Own Heart’s Blood], they’re completely different or they’ve traveled a long way,” the 34-year-old Scottish actor says of the characters, “and it feels like we’re at the start of that journey.”

  1. Pinned onto Outlander the Series.

  2. After reading this article, I agree with Sam and Caitriona’s remarks. Outlander is just the beginning of a journey that will take us through the lives of two exceptional people and their families. Hopefully, we will be able to watch all of Diana’s books on the screen during the next 8-9 years. This is the main reason that I love the series/books so much. You see the changes that take place over the course of decades and feel like you are experiencing it with Jamie and Claire. There are very few authors/producers who can affect the lives of so many supporters of this series by the inspirational talent they have pulled together. There hasn’t been a series of this genre which has/will touch the hearts of millions of viewers all over the world. Congratulations to our Outlander family and may you continue to enjoy the fruits of your labors in the months/years to come.
