New Caitriona Balfe Interview with The Herald Scotland   2 comments


From The Herald Scotland

The second season of Outlander will see the action switch to the opulence of Paris as Balfe’s character Claire and her husband Jamie – a swashbuckling Highlander played by Sam Heughan – attempt to infiltrate the brewing Jacobite rebellion led by Charles Edward Stuart.

Balfe smiles when asked how she is coping with the mechanics of ostentatious French fashion. “It is obviously very beautiful, but there are certain restrictions so it can get a little trying,” she admits. How long does a bathroom break take? “Quite a while because it all has to come off first.”

Balfe, who was a model before moving into film and television, is sanguine when asked why millions of viewers have become so emotionally invested in the couple. “There is something about the equality of power in that relationship,” she says. “You have two fully formed characters who are equals. They challenge each other, allow each other to grow and sometimes force each other to grow. I think that is what people respond to.

“It is an imperfect relationship, but because of that it is sort of perfect. It is something that everyone can relate to. At the end of the day, they really support and care for one another. It does feel like they are soulmates.”
