NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton and Matt Roberts from Entertainment Weekly   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton and Matt Roberts from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

The season 4 finale of Outlander on Starz was a category 4 tearjerker: Young Ian gave himself up to the Mohawk to free a depleted Roger, while Brianna gave birth to a son who may or may not be Roger’s baby. But fans of Diana Gabaldon’s Drums of Autumn — the fourth book in the Outlander series, on which the season was based — couldn’t help but notice a slight omission in the otherwise breathtaking finale. Unlike what happens in the book, Claire and Jamie were not present for the birth of Jeremiah, or Jemmy, at River Run. Instead, Claire and Jamie reunited with Bree after she delivered their first grandchild.

More after the jump!

While deep in production on season 5 in Scotland, executive producer Matthew B. Roberts and star Sophie Skelton (Brianna) agreed to break up Droughtlander by answering a few burning questions about season 4 — specifically, why grandma and grandpa totally missed the birth. Here’s what they said!

SOPHIE SKELTON: I know. I can completely see why. Obviously from the book, that is a beautiful scene, and I think it would have been a lovely Fraser family moment. But I think, luckily we make up for that when Brianna comes out with Jemmy and she realizes that Roger isn’t with them. They have that lovely little family moment there. Unspoken things are said, especially at the dinner table scene when Bree comes back in. The Frasers are really there to support each other.
MATTHEW B. ROBERTS: Once again, in the power structure, the decision was made not to show that. There is always debate in the room. You can debate 100 times about something, and somebody ultimately makes a decision. I never debate whether it’s a right decision or a wrong decision, or whether it’s good or bad. It’s just the decision, and then you fall in line. You turn and make the best show you can.
