New interview of Lotte Verbeek with NY Post   3 comments

New interview of Lotte Verbeek with NY Post

From NY Post

It’s understandable if you thought that a naked woman emerging from a blood-filled bathtub Sunday night on TV was a scene from FX’s pulpy “American Horror Story” — or a rerun of HBO’s “True Blood.”

It was actually murderous, time-traveling political zealot Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek), who made a surprising (if bloody) return to “Outlander,” the time-traveling Starz period drama, now in its third season and known for being slow and sedate — if a bit steamy at times. But when Geillis reappeared in Sunday night’s episode, “Outlander’s” tone pivoted towards high camp.

“I was delighted to do it,” says Verbeek, 35. “There’s quite a lot to blood bathing — making sure you don’t float and staying under the surface, and washing off after every single take.”

“Outlander” revolves around the adventures of Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a time traveling nurse from the 1900s, and Jamie (Sam Heughan), a Scottish highlander from the 1700s. In Season 1, when Claire was displaced in 18th century Scotland, the mysterious Geillis was initially her friend. Eventually, however, it was revealed that Geillis was also a time-traveler with a penchant for killing her husbands and a zeal to see a Scot on the British throne — no matter who stands in her way. The end of Season 3 re-introduced the character after a 20-year time jump, and she enters with a bloody bang.

“The idea is that I walk out [of the bathtub] like this tigress, but all I was trying to do was not fall flat on my face,” Verbeek says. “It was really slippery. We took an entire day for that scene. I’m glad we did; it was supposed to be an epic moment of this woman returning.

Here is a NEW Interview with Lotte Verbeek from Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

Forget the Red Wedding. Have you ever seen anything more frightening than the Red Bath?

In Sunday’s episode of Outlander, the time-tripping Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) returned to the plot in a very grisly manner — by stepping out of a literal blood bath. (Props to director Charlotte Brändström for the Mrs. Robinson-like way she filmed Verbeek’s leg emerging out of the pool with Young Ian sitting wide-eyed in the background.) I asked the Dutch actress, who was last seen returning through the stones at the end of season 2, to explain how she executed her crimson comeback.

Face it, Claire: You aren’t the only one who’s in love with the King of Men.

In Sunday’s episode of Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Bale) comes face-to-face with Lord John Grey (David Berry), a character who opened his heart to Jamie (Sam Heughan) earlier this season. After filming the scenes for “The Bakra,” I caught up with Berry to chat about his character’s journey and what it was like to shoot the pivotal moment when he reunites with the [secret!] object of his affection in Jamaica.

Here is a NEW Interview with Toni Graphia from The Hollywood Reporter

From THR:

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is no damsel in distress on Starz’s Outlander. Time and again, the drama’s central heroine has proven that she doesn’t need a knight in shining armor (or tartan) to save her in times of trouble. She can take care of herself. And Sunday’s episode provided the latest example of that.
