NEW Interview and Photoshoot of Caitriona Balfe from Harpers Bazaar   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview and Photoshoot of Caitriona Balfe from Harpers Bazaar

From Harpers Bazaar :

Claire Fraser is no stranger to brutality. The first time we ever see our Outlander heroine, played by Caitriona Balfe, on-screen, she’s stoically tending to a soldier’s horrifically mangled leg, her face spattered with arterial blood, and her life became only marginally less grueling after World War II ended. Since tumbling back through time into 18th-century Scotland, Claire has endured a whole litany of traumas—loss, miscarriage, physical and emotional violence at the hands of countless villains—and emerged more resilient than ever. But tonight’s Season 5 finale centers on what may be Claire’s most horrific ordeal to date, following her kidnapping at the hands of Lionel Brown and his men at the climax of last week’s episode. The disorienting opening moments of “Never My Love” find Claire in an idyllic but surreal 1960s dreamscape, immediately suggesting that this will be no ordinary episode of Outlander. It soon becomes clear that this is her brain’s desperate attempt to cope with unspeakable trauma as she is gagged, beaten, and raped by multiple men.

NEW Stills and Interview with Sophie Skelton and Lauren Lyle From Glamour   3 comments

Here are NEW Stills and Interview with Sophie Skelton and Lauren Lyle From Glamour

From Glamour:

Before Sophie Skelton can walk me through the emotional twists in the Outlander season 5 finale, she wants to apologize. “I’m sorry for the finale and I hope you’re okay,” Skelton, who plays Brianna Fraser MacKenzie, tells me over the phone. “It’s a gruesome one.”

It’s not Skelton’s fault that Outlander’s season 5 finale includes some of the series’ most horrific moments to date. But viewers will definitely agree with her description. By the episode’s closing shot, “I think everyone in the season has either taken a life or saved a life,” Lauren Lyle, who plays Marsali, says. “It’s been really high stakes the whole time.”

Here are NEW Stills and Interview with Trisha Biggar from Town & Country

From T&C:

Claire’s assault at the hands of Lionel Brown and his men in the season five finale of Outlander is possibly the most violent attack the series has shown on screen thus far. Outlander doesn’t shy away from storylines revolving around sexual violence⁠, something the show’s writers and creators have been criticized for in the past. And the footage of Claire being gang raped is, understandably, hard to watch.

But what’s interesting about the episode “Never My Love” is how it juxtaposes that horrific imagery with a dream sequence of sorts. Footage of Claire’s rape is intertwined with her dissociation, and viewers see her being brutalized, but then the show rapidly flips to a hallucination; a vision in her mind of her 18th century family transported into the future.

From Deadline:

The season five finale of Starz Outlander ended on a high note, kind of. Tonight’s episode, which was titled Never My Love, was written by showrunner Matthew B. Roberts and Toni Graphia and directed by Jamie Payne.

The finale opens with Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who has been taken captive by Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and his men after Lionel discovered that Claire was using the guise of Dr. Rawlings to publish articles with innovative medical tips for the people of the Ridge and accuses Claire of “spreading dangerous ideas.” Claire tries desperately to escape but is tied up and beaten by Lionel’s men.

Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton from Collider

From Collider:

“Never My Love,” named after the song from 1967, came with a trigger warning at the top of the episode that noted it included “disturbing scenes of a violent and sexual nature,” and provided the link to RAINN.org. Stars of the series, including Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Sophie Skelton (Brianna Mackenzie) also warned fans in advance on their social media pages that the episode tackled difficult material. Indeed, Claire was assaulted and raped by Lionel Brown and some of his men.
