From WSJ:

When Claire and Jamie Fraser aren’t busy plotting to thwart a major royal overthrow on this season of “Outlander,” they’ve been preoccupied with repairing their broken marriage.

What drew you to the role of Jenny Fraser?

Her strength, really. It’s not often that you get to play a woman who can absolutely fend for herself, who’s feisty, who’s capable. And, for that to happen in the 1700s, you know, you rarely get to have those qualities in a female character, full stop, never mind in a corset! And, of course, when I discovered afterward that we would be shooting in Scotland – and the fact that I have an ongoing love affair with Scotland, because I studied there – it was the perfect job.
