NEW Interview with Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton from Radio Times   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton from Radio Times

From Radio Times:

Sitting with actors Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton, it’s not hard to see why their on screen relationship has blossomed in Outlander season three.

“They have such a fiery to and fro, they’re both stubborn, they fight a lot,” Rankin says of Brianna and Roger’s relationship. “God, so far removed from us in real life, eh!” he teases Skelton as the pair chuckle on a couch in a central London hotel.

Poking fun at each other seems to be something of a favourite past-time for the Scot and the English actress, who first burst on to the Outlander scene in the season two finale. Skelton plays Jamie and Claire’s daughter Brianna, while Rankin is Roger Wakefield, the adopted son of the Reverend Wakefield, who was close friends with Claire’s first husband Frank.

Their characters first met at the Reverend Wakefield’s funeral, and have been growing closer together ever since their endearingly awkward encounter. It’s been something of a slow-burn ‘will-they-won’t-they-well-they-do-in-the-books’ plot that the actors have really enjoyed playing about with.

“Brianna and Roger’s relationship is very real and it’s very awkward,” says Skelton of the growing attraction between the ballsy Harvard student and the somewhat shy Scottish history professor. “It’s very up and down and they argue a LOT”.
