Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton from TV Insider

From TV Insider:

As if we didn’t already know, Brianna Randall Fraser (Sophie Skelton) is resilient just like her parents.

In Outlander’s latest episode, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” we find Bree in the Highlands of 18th century Scotland, having gone through the stones. With nothing but a sandwich and an old map, she struggles to find her way in the rough terrain.

More after the jump!

Luckily, on her journey to find passage to the colonies, she runs into a few familiar faces (to Outlander fans) — Laoghaire (Nell Hudson), her daughter Joan (Layla Burns), and uncle Ian Murray (Steven Cree) — although Bree learns quickly that the Highlands are a dangerous place.

Also in this episode, another character returns: Frank (Tobias Menzies), who died last season in a car accident. He raised Brianna, knowing that she was Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) daughter, and this week, their father-daughter relationship is highlighted in flashback scenes.

TV Insider spoke with Skelton about her spotlighted episode and what’s next for Brianna as she makes her way to America.

TV Insider: Did filming this episode feel different because of the time travel aspect?

Sophie Skelton: Very much so. It’s always funny because whenever we film in studio, we’re in the ’60s with vibrant outfits and there’s this happy vibe. So it’s felt like we’re doing two different shows, but it was cool that these two worlds collide.

I’m very excited for people to see this episode because we get to see Frank and I think fans will see a side of Bree we didn’t see before. It shows how much Bree has been going through that people didn’t realize. Of course, she’s this ’60s woman in a different century. I wanted to keep Bree’s lighthearted demeanor but you have to adapt to the times quite quickly.

How did it feel getting fitted for those 18th century costumes?

It’s always weird when you put a corset on for the first time. [It’s] a very, very different feel and it changes everything — how you breath, stand. I’ve been spoiled with Bree in that she’s been wearing baggier clothing so to jump into a corset — it’s like a completely different character.

  1. Great interview. Loved “Down the Rabbit Hole”. Brianna saying goodbye to Frank, feeling guilty that she didn’t listen to him the night of the accident and is now on a journey to find her Mother and Jamie – it was heartbreaking. Tobias Menzies was superb as always. Love his acting.
