Here is a NEW Interview with Caitriona Balfe from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Sam Heughan isn’t the only one who gets to perform all the cool stunts.

More after the jump!

At the end of Sunday’s episode of Outlander, “Heaven and Earth,” the script called for Claire (Caitriona Balfe) to quite literally take a leap of faith off of the Porpoise to help Jamie out of another jam. That meant a night of airborne action — and plenty of fun — on the show’s South Africa set last March.

“I did some rehearsals when we got there,” Balfe recalls to EW. “I was jumping off the side [of the ship] onto a cherry picker with a crash mat about 15 to 20 feet down. I was doing my jumps and climbing back up. It was really fun. It’s not an insignificant jump and you’re landing on a cherry picker, which is up in the air. They always want to make sure that everything’s done safely so I won’t break a leg and shut down production.”

  1. Loved Caitriona’s interview. Love knowing what goes on behind the scenes – it makes us appreciate all the hard work and creativity that happens. Caitriona has a great sense of humour – love it.

  2. She is fantastic. Although they’re all good actors, I find Caitriona the BEST. When she’s got tears in her eyes, I do to. When she smiles, I smile too and when she’s angry, so am I. That’s how good she is.

    • Well said! I think because she is a very honest compassionate person, her emotions as she portrays them in Claire are heartfelt and not “put on”. I do hope she wins that Golden Globe for best TV actress.
