New interview of Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin with Popsugar   1 comment

Here’s a new interview of Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin with Popsugar

From Popsugar

The Droughtlander is almost over, Outlander fans. To prepare for the upcoming third season, I sat down with stars Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin, who joined the Starz drama at the end of season two as Brianna Randall and Roger Wakefield, respectively. In speaking with me, the two actors definitely wanted to convey how incredible it has been to join a show with such a devoted fan base — a fan base they want to honor with their performances.

“The fans are crazy vocal, crazy passionate, they’re so committed to the show,” Rankin said. “It’s their baby for a lot of them, especially those who have been reading it for the last 20 years. I think it’s important to respect their idea of the show, of these characters.”

For Skelton, getting to meet fans in person at San Diego Comic-Con this year was a particularly special treat, especially since she’s been getting to chat with them online since being cast. “That’s the beautiful thing about social media, we interact with them a lot, don’t we?” she said. “It was so nice and so rewarding, because they really are invested in the characters. As an actor, you’re so defensive of your character, because you’re really in their head, so you love them no matter, but it’s lovely to see the fans have the same feeling for them.”
“They’re a very intelligent and articulate fan base as well,” Rankin added. “You can really get a good debate going with them if you want to.”
