Izzy Meikle-Small Discusses Outlander, Rachel, and Meeting Diana Gabaldon   1 comment

Izzy Meikle-Small opened up to Town&Country to chat about Rachel’s love triangle, meeting Diana Gabaldon, and all things Outlander

From Town&Country:

Outlander’s Izzy Meikle-Small didn’t make an ideal first impression on Diana Gabaldon.

“I met Diana on maybe my third or fourth week of filming, and I didn’t know she was going to be there,” Meikle-Small, who joins the cast of Starz’s popular time-travel drama in season seven as Rachel Hunter, says of her introduction to the woman whose books inspired the TV series.

“It was such a funny day. We all really had the giggles because we were doing this scene where we were in this loch and me, Sam [Heughan], and Cat [Caitriona Balfe] were in a boat that was pushing off because we were escaping. It was really high stakes,” she says over Zoom in late June, describing a scene from earlier this season in the episode “Singapore,” in which British soldiers are coming to attack Fort Ticonderoga, forcing the Continental Army to flee.

“They put us in the shallowest part of the loch, but the boat was too heavy and Sam couldn’t push the boat away. So every time we did the take, Sam would jump in and heroically try and push us off, and he would just be grounded every time,” Meikle-Small continues. “I realized that Diana had been watching this whole time and we were so embarrassed ’cause I felt like I just spent the whole day laughing. But she was very sweet and said that I was what she imagined for Rachel, which is obviously the nicest thing to hear.”
