Here are NEW Interview with With Jessica Reynolds Form Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Dear Malva, we hardly knew ye…

From the beginning, it seemed clear the Christie family were destined to bring trouble to the Ridge. But everything came to a head on Sunday night’s episode, “The World Turned Upside Down.” After dysentery and a second mysterious illness took the lives of many on the Ridge and practically killed Claire (Caitriona Balfe), new trouble was in store, courtesy of one Miss Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds).

More after the jump!

The Christie family came to the Fraser home to tell them that Malva was pregnant — and, according to her, by Jamie (Sam Heughan), who Malva claims began an affair with her while Claire was delirious in her sickbed. Of course, Jamie denies this, and Claire is blindsided by her former apprentice’s sudden determination to upend her marriage.

Turmoil between the families ensues, and Claire struggles to recover emotionally and physically in the midst of this sudden betrayal. But things take a far more tragic turn when Claire discovers Malva lying in the Fraser garden, her throat slit. Claire desperately tries to save Malva’s unborn child, cutting the baby from her womb, but it’s too late.

We caught up with Jessica Reynolds to ask about Malva’s bloody end, what her motives in accusing Jamie were, and why she was driven to betray Claire after seemingly coming to see her as a mother figure.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The book is out there as a reference point, but when you signed on to the show, did you know that this was going to be Malva’s fate from the beginning?

JESSICA REYNOLDS: When I was auditioning, I didn’t. When I got the part, I found out from the book because I read my whole book. That’s how I found out. And I was like, “Oh, my good god!” [author Diana Gabaldon] really found a way to put all the worst things that could happen to an 18-year-old girl into one plot line. It’s just pure tragedy, isn’t it?
