Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton from Collider

From Collider:

On Sunday night’s newest episode of Starz historical drama Outlander‘s, “The Ballad of Roger Mac,” the Regulator Rebellion reaches an unavoidable boiling point. Brianna (Sophie Skelton) remembers certain details pertaining to the upcoming battle, and it puts her husband, Roger (Richard Rankin), into a situation of grave danger as he crosses behind enemy lines.

During this 1-on-1 phone interview with Collider, Skelton previewed how this episode marks a real turning point in Season 5, revealing why “hearts are gonna be broken,” the careful consideration Brianna has when it comes to knowing the history of what’s about to happen, what she enjoys about the quiet family moments, and how different the Outlander character feels now compared to who she was when she first appeared on the show.

More after the jump!

Collider: This episode seems like a real turning point episode, with a lot of stuff happening in it. What would you say to tease this episode?

SOPHIE SKELTON: I would say this episode is when we really start to see the season take off, story-wise. We have some characters that we’ve loved since the first season, and that storyline really now is something that we are concentrating on; hearts are gonna be broken. It’s a wonderful episode in terms of who your most important loyalties are with. It brings up that whole question of, “If you have the knowledge from the future and you can prevent something awful happening to the world or the people that you love, can you or should you do it, and what is gonna be the effect of that?” We really see a culmination of that and who history takes down with it.

That seems to really be something that Brianna thinks about. She gets what’s going on because she knows the history, but at the same time, she seems very hesitant to drastically change it.

SKELTON: Yeah. Bree’s not a rash character. She has a good measure of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and of Claire (Caitriona Balfe). Claire seems to act on her gut a lot, which Brianna definitely does. But Bree also has that calculation that Jamie — who always stops and considers — does, a little bit more. It’s an interesting one for Bree because she has this knowledge and she tells them, but she’s not unaware of the fact you do need to take into consideration the effects and ramifications it could have. If they change things today to change things for the people that they love, in that moment, what will happen to the people they love in the future or America, and the effects of that. I think it plays back to when Brianna was talking to Claire about the penicillin and talked about playing God. Bree’s not trying to be preachy. She is just aware of the fact it could cause more problems, down the line. She just wants to make sure they do all talk it through, in this little amount of time that they have. There’s not really a correct answer.

  1. A great interview with Sophie. She had taken Brianna from girl to woman – through pain and loneliness and danger. She definitely has changed a lot.
