NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe from ELLE Magazine   3 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe from ELLE Magazine

From ELLE:

Sunday’s episode of Outlander showed us how much of a hold Jamie’s ghost still has on Claire—even when she’s with her first husband. Try as she might to bring physical intimacy back into her marriage with Frank, something holds her back, and Frank calls her out on it. “Claire, when I’m with you, I’m with you,” he tells her. “But you’re with him.”

More after the jump!

When we caught up with actress Caitriona Balfe on the Outlander set in Cape Town, South Africa—where she was shooting a top-secret, spoiler-heavy scene that we’ll fill you in on as the season progresses—we convinced her to take a break, snack on an orange, and share her thoughts on the status of the Claire/Frank relationship.

For someone who is supposed to look 20 years older, you’ve aged well. Your hair doesn’t even look gray anymore…

[Laughs] It’s the weather here! It’s a really good town. But yeah, Claire does a few little beauty things, to try to make herself feel a little younger, as we all do. She dyes her hair!

Writer/producer Matt Roberts was just explaining how in the first few episodes, the scenes with Claire and Frank in Boston would be very Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

I think when we all read the book, and figured out which scenes we’d do, we were talking about that play. Even Gary Steele, our production designer. I remember walking in to see Gary, and I was like, “I’ve been thinking it’s a bit like…” and he said, “… like this?” And he had pictures of the play! And I was like, “Yes!” So we were all on the same page. It was just something about that confined space, and the two people who are just suffocating in their own dysfunction. Edward Albee does such an amazing job in that play of describing a dysfunctional marriage: two people who have disappointed each other so much, and then it starts to fester.
