New Tobias Menzies Interview with Nerdist   4 comments

Here’s a new Tobias Menzies interview with Nerdist

From Nerdist

Starz’s epic time-traveling historical fantasy series (say that five times fast), Outlander, has already achieved cult-like status in the short amount of time it’s been on air. That is mostly thanks to the novels on which it is based — written by Diana Gabaldon — but it’s also because of the stellar acting and storytelling happening on-screen. One such instance of that excellence is Tobias Menzies, who has the enviable (or un, depending on how you look at it) task of portraying two characters: Frank and Black Jack Randall, distantly related figures that pop into Claire Randall/Fraser’s life at different periods in time.

The second half of Outlander‘s first season premieres on Saturday, April 4th (check back for our recap after the episode airs!), so we sat down with Menzies to talk about his primary focus this second half (Black Jack), the series’ subversive ways, and why Ron Moore is just so good at what he does.

Nerdist: So, you play two wildly different characters on one show; what’s that like?

Tobias Menzies: It’s a question I’ve been asked a lot and I still haven’t quite worked out a satisfactory answer, because in a way it felt quite intuitive. I do remember — and Ron [Moore, the series’ showrunner] has talked about this — when I was being put into the clothes for the two different time periods, it sort of informed how I was standing and stuff. I didn’t know that, [but] I was keen not to ink it in too heavily, what was different about them. I wanted the difference to be in the eyes really, rather than anything more overt. I’m encouraged, though, because people seem to genuinely feel that there is a real kind of difference between the two of them. I made the slightly scary decision to sort of trust the narrative, and the costuming, and the setting to do a lot of the work for us so the difference between the two could be subtle, in a way. That’s the fun thing about having, obviously, one actor playing the two people — there’s nice sort of freestyle moments of when they’re similar and when they’re different and we get to play with that.

Here’s a new interview of Sam Heughan with Collider

Collider: Have you felt the affects of the overwhelming fan support for the show, or are you in your own bubble, working on this show?

SAM HEUGHAN: We’re in Scotland and we are in a bubble. It hasn’t aired in the UK yet, so it’s quite nice to be anonymous there and get on with the job. And then, coming to America or wherever it’s being shown, the reaction has been fantastic. Being recognized, people are very, very friendly and genuine when they meet you. I’ve met them in the airport or in the street, and it’s lovely. We’re aware of it on Twitter and Facebook, and that support is fantastic. I always get really excited when I know an episode is coming up. I can’t wait for the fans to see it.

There are obviously big moments with this story that the fans wait to see brought to life. Is it fun to get to see the immediate reaction to those moments?

HEUGHAN: Absolutely! There are so many moments in the show, and I have a little thrill, every time. It’s really exciting.

*NEW* Caitriona Balfe’s Interview with Marie Claire   4 comments

From Marie Claire:

‘Outlander’ Star Caitriona Balfe on Playing TV’s Sexiest, Most In-Control Woman

Outlander‘s been dubbed a “bodice ripper,” but it’s really a show about a badass feminist heroine–and if there is any bodice ripping it’s on Claire’s terms. Do you think “bodice ripper” is a misnomer?

“I think that doesn’t justify the show. I think we bring so much more to it. Claire is a very sexual woman and she’s very in control of her sexuality and she doesn’t apologize for it. I think that’s something that’s great about her. I mean, we don’t very often get these female characters who are able to bring that to a show. Usually it’s more common to see the male protagonist, and they have as many women as they want or there’s something going on in the background as two people are having a conversation. But also, there is an element of sexual violence being used as a weapon in that time, and I think we can’t take away from the seriousness of that.”

Claire wrapped up the middle of the season being sexually assaulted by two different men in the course of one episode. How will she cope with that, and will the assault impact her sexual and emotional relationship with Jamie?

“I think that her emotional relationship with Jamie is sort of a safe haven for her, and it’s where she can go and really feel safe and heal. They’ve built this partnership. And it’s vice versa––I think he’s going to experience some really harrowing things this season and she’s going to be the one that’s going to be there for him. I think yes, these incidences, they do have an effect on her psyche. But that’s kind of the amazing thing, that you do see how resilient she is. It’s incredible how much one person can withstand, but she manages to forge forward.”
