NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan from Mashable   2 comments

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

From Mashable:

On Oct. 22, Outlander finally gave us the reunion that we’ve been waiting five episodes for (which is a while, sure, but definitely preferable to the 20 years that Claire and Jamie had to suffer through). 

More after the jump!

“A. Malcolm” was supersized to 74 minutes to give Claire and Jamie (and us) ample opportunity to… ahem… catch up — which was just as well, considering how frequently they were interrupted over the course of the episode. 

The narrative spine of episode 306 — beyond the simple anticipation of Claire and Jamie’s physical reunion — traced their tentative steps back together on an emotional level. 

As Jamie pointed out with agonizing honesty, they almost know less about each other now, after 20 years of separate life experiences, than they did when they first got together. That resulted in some beautifully awkward (and kind of heartbreaking) moments as the couple relearned each other — like Jamie’s instinct to turn around out of modesty when he had to take off his trousers in front of Claire, despite the fact that she’s seen it all before.

“I think Claire, when she goes back… this is a woman who’s put her entire romantic and sexual life on hold for the best part of 20 years. Obviously that gives you I think a slight rigidity,” Caitriona Balfe tells us. “I think it’s that thing of, almost like when you go home to your family, we all sort of regress, and even though there’s that initial trepidation with Jamie, once they’re in each other’s company, all of that starts to strip away quite quickly.”
