New Interview with Caitriona Balfe from TV Line   2 comments

Here is a new interview with Caitriona Balfe from TV Line


From TV Line:

The Frasers’ Parisian tour of pain continued in the latest Outlander, when Clairedelivered a stillborn daughter, nearly died of childbed fever, accidentally sent one of her enemies to his death and then had to have sex with a monarch in order to free her estranged husband from jail. (And you thought you had a rough week.)

More after the jump!

The death of Claire and Jamie’s child Faith, as well as the physical and emotional distance between Lady Broch Turach and her husband, made for an “intense” episode experience, star Caitriona Balfe tells TVLine

“I think by the end of the week, my eyes were so swollen, I went away and had ice packs on them,” she says, chuckling.

Below, Balfe discusses how she approached some of Claire’s lowest moments in the series so far, finds a bit of levity in a pivotal prop and previews what the Frasers’ return to Scotland will mean for our favorite time-traveler and her man.

| “Faith” is one of those episodes that those who know Diana Gabaldon’s books kind of dreaded, just because it’s so heartbreaking. You’re familiar with the source material; how long before you shot the episode had you been thinking about it?

From the very get-go of the season. It was very important for us that this pregnancy didn’t get pushed completely to the sidelines, because I think when you know that this is going to happen, it’s important that you make the readers first of all be on board and see the hopefulness and see the importance of the pregnancy, for then the loss of it to have an impact. It was a struggle this year to balance the personal journey with the whole political storyline, and we tried to, as much as we could, to bring in that pregnancy and to make the child very much part of the Jamie/Claire relationship and their safe space. So yeah, you constantly know where that journey is going to lead you to.
