New: Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan’s Interview With Collider Regarding Outlander   2 comments

From Collider

Collider: What does it feel like to be at the point with Outlander where you can say that you only have one season left? Has the emotion of that hit you, or has reality not set in? Are you in denial? What stage of emotion are you at?

CAITRIONA BALFE: I think the emotion is starting to hit a little. We have a lot of work left to do, and there are a lot of episodes for people to still see. But it does feel like a huge accomplishment, when we’re coming up to 10 years. That’s such a crazy number, and it’s so wild to think we started this a decade ago, but it’s also a very proud moment too.

SAM HEUGHAN: I think we all started feeling it, towards the end of this last season. It was very tangible, the fact we were coming towards the end of it. It’s mixed, isn’t it?

BALFE: Yeah.

HEUGHAN: We are very proud and always very excited to promote and celebrate, with the fans, the new season, but we also know that, when we go back, it will be the last time. So, it’s mixed emotions.

What does 10 years with the same character feel like? What has been the happiest surprise of that experience?

HEUGHAN: For me, honestly, it’s that you can spend 10 years with a character and still be surprised by them, and still come to work every day and feel like you still don’t know what’s gonna happen. That’s partly down to the writing, partly down to Diana [Gabaldon]’s great characters, but it’s been such a great journey. Every day that we come to set, you feel comfortable, which is amazing. Having lived with the character that long is incredible. To actually say goodbye to that character will also be difficult.

  2. The thought of saying goodbye to this show and these characters is heartbreaking! They have been so real to us, thanks to Diana Gabaldon’s words, and the immense talent of cast, crew and writers of the show. Please don’t end after S8!!! Come back after Diana finishes book 10, and end it properly!!!!🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
