NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan from Vanity Fair   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan from Vanity Fair

From Vanity Fair:

Non book readers may not have known it on sight, but they just witnessed the beginning of what is far and away the most anticipated scene of the third season. “The first thing everyone talks about is the print shop,” series star Caitriona Balfetold Vanity Fair almost a year ago before either she or Sam Heughan had gotten a chance to film Claire and Jamie’s emotional reunion. “‘Are you going to do the print shop? You can’t change one line of the print shop,’” she lovingly mimicked the show’s concerned fans. But you don’t need to be an avid reader of Diana Gabaldon’s books to know that any scene involving Claire and Jamie back together again would be a popular one.

More after the jump!

The scene is altered a bit. The episode, frustratingly, cuts off just after Jamie faints (as he does in the books) but before the long-separated lovers can lay a finger on each other. Things go a little differently in the books where Claire and Jaime do touch before he passes out. Claire narrates: 

There was no more than a foot between us. I reached out tentatively and touched the tiny line of the break, where the bone pressed white against the bronze of his skin.

He flinched backward as though an electric spark had arced between us, and the calm expression shattered.

“You’re real,” he whispered. I had thought him pale already. Now all vestiges of color drained from his face. His eyes rolled up and he slumped to the floor in a shower of papers and oddments that had been sitting on the press—he fell rather gracefully for such a large man, I thought abstractedly.”
