NEW Interview with Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton from TV Guide   1 comment

Here a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin from TV Guide

From TV Guide:

Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) are officially no longer the only couple that can break our hearts on Outlander. Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) took their relationship to the next level in Sunday’s episode, but just as soon as they conceded that they really wanted to be together, things went off the rails in a big way.

*New* Sophie Skelton & Richard Rankin’s Interview With Vulture   1 comment

From Vulture

In another interview, you mentioned that Drums of Autumn — the book that’s the basis for Outlander season four — was your favorite in the series. Why?
Sophie Skelton: Because I read them from a Brianna point of view. It’s the one where I felt like she really comes into her own. She’s quite guarded and quite stoic in the first couple, but in this one she lets you see more aspects of her personality. She goes through a horrific amount, but we see her coming into her own and blossoming from the Brianna we’ve seen into this more mature, more open woman.

Richard Rankin: So, purely for selfish reasons.

Skelton: Pretty much, yeah!

Do you also have feelings about the books, Richard? 
Rankin: I have lots of feelings about all of the books. Drums of Autumn is also my favorite book in the series so far. For many reasons. It’s not that it’s a better story, it just really opens up. There’s a lot more in it, new characters, new relationships. I like when you get a nice epic fantasy story like that. All of your characters are in peril. There’s a lot of conflict going on. I think Drums of Autumn does that better than any of the other books preceding it.

*New* Sophie Skelton’s Interview With Schon! Magazine **Major Spoiler Warning**   1 comment


From Schon! Magazine

When you signed on for Outlander, did you know what a big deal it was?

I actually auditioned for it in 2014 and didn’t hear anything for a year, so assumed that someone else got it. There aren’t many characters that you audition for that you feel protective over and I really did with Brianna, so that one hit quite hard. I was really gutted. Then I got an email a year later saying, ‘Audition for Brianna in Outlander’ and I was like, “I’m sure I did this!” It turns out they were going to bring the character into the end of Season 1, never did, so they never cast it.

*New* Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin’s Interview With THR   1 comment

From THR

Roger’s behavior was not ideal this week. When you both read the script for episode 3, what did you think of how Roger completely mishandled everything with Bree?

Rankin: [Laughs]I’ll let Sophie answer that one.

Skelton: That’s the reaction that we hoped for from that scene. People will have their split opinions on it. Richard and I both were very protective of our characters, because to play each character, you have to delve into their minds and understand their opinions, and therefore those opinions often become your own. What’s great about that scene is that both of them are right and wrong in equal measure. But I’m with you, totally with you on this. Roger is trying to come from a loving place …

Rankin: Trying to, yeah. Absolutely he’s coming from a loving place.

Skelton: This is all coming right off the back of Brianna putting herself out there for Roger and him doing the same in terms of proposing. So they’re both feeling pretty bruised in that moment. That’s why that argument exacerbates and accelerates and escalates to the level that it does. Had they had this debate after dinner one night instead of out of the blue like this, it would have gone very differently. They’re both realizing something about the other one that they didn’t quite know.

*New* Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe’s Interview With Decider   1 comment

Here is Sam Heughan and Caitiona Balfe’s interview with Decider. 

From Decider

“She already has America in her blood,” says Balfe of Claire’s mindset when she and Jamie arrive in 1767 North Carolina. “She raised her daughter in America, she fulfilled a lifelong passion by becoming a doctor in America. She’s already an American in many ways. So when this idea to stay [presents itself], it’s a really strong pull for her.”

For Jamie, like so many immigrants to this country, becoming an American is the chance for a clean slate, something that he never would’ve had in Scotland as a former Highlander laird/outlaw: “I think for him, America is an opportunity, and they quickly realize that they could create a life here; going back to Scotland isn’t really a viable option,” says Heughan. “He’s always wanted to create a home and have a family – and he knows that by molding America into this new world is a way that he can have some sort of influence on [his daughter] Brianna in the future.”
