NEW Interview with Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton from Collider   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton from Collider

From Collider:

In Season 5 of the Starz drama series Outlander, the Frasers find themselves fighting for their family and their home, as Jamie (Sam Heughan) must defend all that he’s created in America, alongside his wife Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and their daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton), son-in-law Roger (Richard Rankin), and grandson Jemmy. With their family together and seemingly everything they could want, there is still a cloud over Bree and Roger, as she deals with the effects of her own personal trauma and they work to find their place in the 18th century.

During this interview with Collider, co-stars Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin talked about where things are headed for Season 5, exploring this time period, the challenges of working with a baby, a funny guitar playing mishap, how their banter keeps the days on set fun, getting to see and wear Brianna’s wedding dress, and figuring out life after trauma.

More after the jump!

Collider: This is a show where, every season, there’s so much to talk about because things progress so much and are so different, from season to season. What does that feel like, in Season 5? How was it to get to explore this time period?

SOPHIE SKELTON: I feel like this season is so fast-paced. There’s so much that happens, that every episode is almost like its own little movie. There is so much to talk about. But it was a really fun one, for us to shoot. Obviously, there’s a lot more characters this season, which always adds whole new layers. There seems to be a lot more action, and a lot more singing. We carry through a lot of the lines from Season 4. A lot of the thread lines of that story come through. There are just so many added layers this season, I think fans will love it, and surprises, too, even for book readers. You’re gonna see things that you’ll be excited about because they’re fresh and new.

RICHARD RANKIN: You really do see the characters like you’ve never seen them before. You see them in roles that you’ve never seen them before, coping with things you’ve never seen them cope with, especially Roger and Brianna. In Season 5, it’s definitely a new world for them.

SKELTON: And in that time period, with Roger and Bree, you see them oscillating between thriving and really drowning. That creates a really interesting dynamic between the two of them, as well, because obviously it does pose the question of, if and/or when they do or don’t go back to the future. One thing about them being in this time period is that they have a young child now, and there are things that you forget about. As we were filming, I would realize, more and more, that you don’t have pacifiers, you don’t have diapers, and you don’t have baby protection on anything. So, what do you do? It’s just a really interesting thing that I hadn’t really thought about. You couldn’t take your eye off them, or you could find Jemmy holding a knife.

  1. I had watched Episode 2, Wow! Things are getting dangerous for everyone. It was a sweet scene when Roger entertained his son with a song It is too bad that Roger found Brianna’s drawings of Steven Bonnett, however I can understand her doing the drawings. A very good interview above – thank you for sharing it with us all.
