NEW Photoshoot and Interview with Caitriona Balfe from Harper’s BAZAAR   1 comment

Here is a NEW Photoshoot and Interview with Caitriona Balfe from Harper’s BAZAAR

From Harper’s BAZAAR:

Tonight’s episode of Outlander marks a major shift in Season 3. After five episodes and 20 years spent in the 20th century, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finally identified Jamie’s whereabouts in 1760s Scotland and, at the behest of her daughter, stepped back through the stones to return to him for, well, forever. Outlander fans have waited exactly 14 months to watch this moment play out onscreen, and it was quite a tease: Jamie and Claire lock eyes for only a few moments before Jamie collapses in a faint and the screen cuts to black.

More after the jump!

It was quite a journey for an episode which opened with Claire settling into a new normal back in Boston, having abandoned any hope of finding Jamie in the 18th century. But Brianna isn’t adjusting to life after Claire’s paternity bombshell, and the two are clashing more than ever—until Roger arrives with a document pointing to Jamie’s location in 1766 Edinburgh. This revelation upends Claire’s life once more, forcing her to make an impossible choice: stay in the present with Brianna, or make the dangerous, irreversible trip to the past. Neither Claire nor Balfe took the dilemma lightly. “This is a woman who makes a decision to leave her daughter forever for the love of someone else,” Balfe tells HarpersBAZAAR.com. “That’s a really hard thing to understand.”

But Brianna pushes Claire to go to Jamie, and she acquiesces. Balfe’s transformation in this episode is astounding; the hardened, hopeless Claire going through the motions melts away as we start to recognize our heroine from seasons past: determined, resourceful, and perhaps just a tiny bit scared. Now that she has 20 years of growth and knowledge behind her, she can tackle the unique challenges of 18th-century life from a wholly new perspective. This will be fascinating to watch play out in forthcoming episodes.

Below, Balfe breaks down her character’s complicated decision, Claire’s long journey toward the print shop, and what to expect once the Frasers embark on life together again.

That decision that Claire makes to leave her daughter is probably the hardest thing I had to get my head around this season. This is a woman who makes a decision to leave her daughter forever for the love of someone else. That’s a really hard thing to understand. Brianna giving her permission and telling her she should go because she wants her to tell her father about her—that’s sort of the permission that Claire gives herself
