Press: Caitriona Balfe Talks Outlander Season 3, Romantic Reunions, and Sam Heughan

What’s going to happen when the star-crossed lovers finally reunite?

Okay, she might have thought Jamie was dead, but still, when Outlander’s Claire went back to her 1940s life, leaving him to deal with the Battle of Culloden in ye olden days, it did seem a bit harsh. But fear not—as we’ve seen in the Outlander season three trailer, our favorite time-traveling couple will finally be reunited after 20 years on Starz come September. Sounds like the most romantic moment ever, doesn’t it?

But, according to Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire, reality might get in the way of the mushy lovefest we’re expecting. “I think maybe the obvious way of doing the reunion would be violins playing, and angels singing, and a sun shaft coming through the window,” she told ELLE.com at Starz’s TCA party in Los Angeles. “I hope that what we’ve done is try and ground it as much in realism as we can. I think it’s really awkward, and funny, and sweet, and endearing.”

It’s only natural that after 20 years apart, a lot has happened to the two as they’ve lived separate lives. Claire and Jamie have a daughter he’s never seen, Claire’s become a doctor, and there’s major drama with her husband Frank. So, just a few small issues then.

“I think Claire and Jamie have both had each other on pedestals for 20 years,” Balfe said. “So when you finally see the object of your love and desire again in the flesh, it throws out everything you thought you would do.” Their separation doesn’t sound like the kind of thing that a quick catch-up over coffee would adequately cover, but luckily it sounds like the pair’s off-the-charts chemistry will win the day. “I think they’re not quite sure what to do with their bodies or their words,” she said. Sounds like things will get pretty steamy, then.

But will the couple stay together for good this time? “I think that physically and emotionally, even though we don’t show this part of the journey ever, of her passing through time, I think it takes an awful lot from someone,” Balfe said of Claire’s time-traveling. Still, given just how difficult her travel through the stones is, she’s not going to undertake it lightly: “I think each time is quite dangerous. You’re never sure if you’re going to land in the right time, or any of those things. I would have to imagine, and I don’t know, because I have not read past book four, but I would have to imagine that once she finds Jamie again, she’s not going to let him out of her sights for too long.”

It also helps that Balfe doesn’t hate playing opposite the gorgeous Sam Heughan as Jamie. “I feel very fortunate that I have a partner like him to work with, it’s all good,” she said. Then she gave us a cheeky smile and added, “He’s a god, let’s be honest. He’s as good in real life as he is on TV.”

A god? Good, we’re on the same page then.

Press/Video/Photos: Outlander releases new video from Season 3

It’s not quite the same as seeing the entire premiere episode at Comic-Con, but Starz has released new video from Outlander that shows key moments from the first few episodes of season 3.

In the video dubbed “Parallel Lives,” Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) provide narration as scenes of from the Culloden battle and Claire’s new life in 20th century Boston flash on the screen. Frank (Tobias Menzies) makes an appearance, as well as Brianna (Sophie Skelton), Lord John Grey (David Berry), Joe Abernathy (Wil Johnson), Jamie’s sister Jenny (Laura Donnelly), and Fergus (Romann Berrux).

On July 21, Starz premiered the entire first episode of season 3 after the show’s panel discussion at Comic-Con. You can read about it here.

Press: Caitriona Balfe (‘Outlander’) reveals love of wine, whiskey, Blondie & South Africa when answering fan questions

“Sunshine, vineyards. It’s beautiful. I was lucky enough to go there about 10 years ago, and Cape Town is so stunning. Just being there will be amazing,” says “Outlander” star Caitriona Balfe about the show’s upcoming shoot in South Africa during a recent interview with The Wrap when she answered “Wrapid Fire” fan questions. Watch below.

Production for “Outlander” is usually based on Scotland, but for the final episodes of its third season it’s moving to the other side of the globe to shoot scenes on the high seas in South Africa. But fans will have to wait awhile for the new episodes to premiere. The time-travel romance, which concluded its second season in July 2016, doesn’t return to Starz until September.

In the meantime, fans can learn even more about Balfe in her video Q&A. She reveals her love of whiskey and wine, that her favorite film is “Full Metal Jacket” by Stanley Kubrick, and that her go to karaoke songs are by Blondie. And her favorite word? “The one I use the most is probably ‘fuck,’ but ‘juxtoposition’ is quite nice.”

Press: ‘Outlander’ scoop – Caitriona Balfe teases print shop scene

One of the most pivotal scenes from Season 3 of Outlander has been shot — and Caitriona Balfe has something to say about it!

While walking the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday, Balfe (blissfully) took a question from EW about the much-anticipated print shop scene that has been shot in Scotland. While loathe to give too much away, Balfe shared how she felt when shooting the moment when Claire and Jamie (Sam Heughan) reunite after 20 years of separation.

“I think it was written very beautifully,” Balfe teased to EW. “Matt B Roberts wrote it. It has every emotion in it. The excitement, the tentativeness, the nerves, everything. I think it’s really beautiful.”

The beloved scene of fans is from Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s book series from which season 3 is based. After rebuilding her life with newborn Breanne in the 20th century, Claire returns through the stones to find Jamie — whom she previously believed had died at the Battle of Culloden — and reunites with him in the print shop where he works.

On Sunday, Balfe was greeted by many of her fans before she walked the carpet of the Golden Globes. (She was nominated in the best actress in a drama series category, which was ultimately awarded to Claire Foy of The Crown.)

“I feel very special,” Balfe told EW of her fans. “They are incredible. They are so vocal and so excited. It’s amazing.”
Starz has yet to announce when season 3 of Outlander will debut.

Video/Photos: Caitriona for ‘The Wrap’ – Interview + Photo Session

Caitriona did an interview and photoshoot for The Wrap this morning. Check out the interview and photos in our gallery.

‘Outlander’s’ stars thrill to the writer’s presence on set

LA TIMES – Diana Gabaldon, author of the popular time-traveling book series “Outlander,” has been racking up her credits on the popular Starz drama that is based on her novels.

Gabaldon is a consultant on the drama about a WWII combat nurse (Caitriona Balfe) who travels from 1945 to 1743, where she falls for and marries Scotsman Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). But she’s also made a cameo appearance in Season 1 of the series. And coming up this season is an episode she wrote.

She penned Episode 211, “Vengeance Is Mine,” which airs June 18.

Heughan and Balfe said they were thrilled when they heard she would be writing a script for Season 2.

When we all did the read-through, we were delighted,” said Heughan during his visit with Balfe to The Envelope’s video studio. “It read really well, there’s a great pace to it. It’s coming up soon.”

Gabaldon was simultaneously writing a new installment to the book series while writing the episode. A process that the actors found fascinating.

To be playing Jamie while she’s writing Jamie is kind of a weird thing,” Heughan said.

It was funny,” Balfe interjected. “You could see her. It’s almost like she goes off into this imaginary world where she’s sort of talking to herself and seeing it play out .. then you see her go back to the writing. It’s amazing to watch somebody go through that process.”

Heughan also noted that he recently heard from Gabaldon.

She’s just read the first episode of next season,” Heughan said. “And she’s really happy and excited.”

Way to tease, Sam!
