New Interview with Caitriona Balfe from The MacGuffin   5 comments

Here is a new interview with Caitriona Balfe from The MacGuffin

Outlander 2014

Caitriona Balfe plays the main character, Claire Randall Fraser, on the television showOutlander. I was able to interview her in a roundtable setting with other journalists at San Diego Comic Con about her work on the show. She began the interview pointing out how to spell her name with two I’s in reference to the ridiculous placecard they had to tote around with them to each table.

For the Outlander interviews, I represented both The MacGuffin and Outlander TV News.

[Spoiler Alert: This interview does discuss certain elements of the second season, so if you would prefer to stay spoiler-free, avoid reading this interview.]

More after the jump!


Q: She is going to have an interesting journey in second season. Are you looking forward to taking this path with her?

Caitriona: Yes. I think Claire in season one was very reactionary, being thrust into this world and having one event after another just sort of happen to her. It wasn’t so much time for contemplation or really life was just sort of thrust upon her rather than figuring out what she wanted, and I think season two is different. First of all, you have … they make this decision to try and change the course of history and there is a lot of thinking about…I think the pregnancy has a lot to do with that. I think also trying to lift Jamie (Sam Heughan) out of sort of the effects of last season and give him a mission, give him something to sort of strive to do. You see her trying to create a world that she wants to live in. There is some incredible storylines and I am really excited to play them.

  2. Sam has shared with us that he was told he couldn’t act. Has Cait received that type of constructive criticism?

    • In fact in DIA Jamie struggles on his own with dealing with the repercussions of the rape. Many times Claire is just there with understanding. To assume then that season two will take that away from his character and give the strength of that fight to Claire? We\ll see then. Acting wise Caitriona and Sam as pretty much at the same level, but Sam had stronger scenes to show his acting chops. Wish them both good luck in their careers outside of Outlander.
