People’s Choice unveiled today the final nominees for 2016 People’s Choice Awards and Outlander fandom has been busy lately voting, because Outlander, Caitriona and Sam Heughan was nominated! Outlander is defending its title, since won last year and it’s up to us to keep it that way! Vote as much as you can!
Season 2 of Outlander won’t premiere on Starz until 2016, and Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ that’s a long wait. But never fear: the DVD/Blu-ray for the latter half of season 1 officially arrives next week, and EW has your exclusive first look at one of the deleted scenes featured on the upcoming release.
Outlander: Season One — Volume Two will be released via Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday.
The November issue of SFX has a page reviewing the recently released Outlander blu-ray. It’s quite funny they explaining why would Outlander to be reviewed on their pages (SFX is a sci-fi related publication), and mentioned the time travel bit, but also how brilliant the story is.
Balfe is superb as Claire, who is smart but blindly stubborn, which causes as many problems as it solves. Heughan, meanwhile, couldn’t be better suited to the role of Jamie – sweet, sincere and fiercely dedicated to the woman he loves. The methodical pacing of their slow-burn relationship won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but you won’t find a better couple on TV.
Several photos from the OutlanderSeason 2 Press Day held in Glasgow (Scotland) back on August 22nd have now been added to the gallery! Caitriona looked splendid as always. Thanks to Far Far Away for the HQs!

Q: She is going to have an interesting journey in second season. Are you looking forward to taking this path with her? Caitriona: Yes. I think Claire in season one was very reactionary, being thrust into this world and having one event after another just sort of happen to her. It wasn’t so much time for contemplation or really life was just sort of thrust upon her rather than figuring out what she wanted, and I think season two is different. First of all, you have … they make this decision to try and change the course of history and there is a lot of thinking about…I think the pregnancy has a lot to do with that. I think also trying to lift Jamie (Sam Heughan) out of sort of the effects of last season and give him a mission, give him something to sort of strive to do. You see her trying to create a world that she wants to live in. There is some incredible storylines and I am really excited to play them.
Outlander Podcast: Claire had a relatively unstructured upbringing with her uncle and the travel and everything. She had to adapt to eighteenth century Scotland. How does Claire feel about and handle the rules of the French Court and all the etiquette that comes with that? Caitriona: It’s a huge adjustment for her, and in a way she had much more freedom in eighteenth century Scotland than she when she does when she first lands in Paris. I think finding her place in a very patriarchal society where the role of women is very restricted is very tough for her. It is not where she is most comfortable. What I love is that she manages to find an outlet for her independence, for her professionalism in a way. She meets Master Raymond, Mother Hildegard, which are two great characters that are coming in, played by the wonderful Dominique Pinon and Frances de la Tour. It’s tough. It’s really … both her and Jamie struggle in the beginning. They are very much in a place where it’s not their comfort zone, but they have to use their intelligence and their smart to figure out and navigate this new place. It’s interesting to see them inhabit a new world and how it affects them.
Q: Can you talk a little about the evolution of Jamie and Claire’s relationship and how she approaches it now?
Caitriona: When we meet them at the top of the season, he’s still struggling with what happens at the end of last season. We really wanted this to be a continuation. It’s not a reset. You see two people very much still affected by everything that has happened, and I think Claire really has to put aside maybe some of her own issues at the moment to really get past what happened and heal. And part of that is giving him a mission, giving him something to focus on that’s not looking back on what happened. They are going through a very uncertain time. They are struggling with their own issues and maybe sometimes privately which has creating somewhat of a gulf between them, but ultimately they are there for each other and they are working to try and help each other. You see continuously with anything in life, adversity and getting past adversity will make you stronger, and that is a beautiful thing about this couple.
“Outlander” is five episodes into filming Season 2, and Caitriona Balfe said she’s been enjoying the new material for her character, Claire Fraser, who is pregnant.
“It’s going really good,” Caitriona told Access Hollywood at Comic-Con earlier this month before returning to the show’s set in Scotland. “It’s a very visually – a very different show this year. I mean, obviously Claire and Jamie are sort of center and all that still. But yeah, it’s really beautiful. The sets are fantastic — so rich and so lush and the costumes are incredible, but you know what I’ve been really enjoying is that Claire’s pregnant and playing all of that – what that brings up in her and about impending motherhood and everything. It’s just been a really, really fun, great material to work with.”
Claire thought she couldn’t get pregnant, and now that she is, it affects the character quite deeply. (more)
The Wrap asked to 33 Emmy contenders who (on their co-stars) deservers an Emmy and why. Sam Heughan is one of the contenders, and here’s his answer.
Sam Heughan (“Outlander”)
“I think everybody does. Caitriona [Balfe] is terrific. She has so much stamina and she carries the show. She has to show up everyday and just give her best. Tobias, equally, he’s an amazing actor. Those last couple of episodes where I really sort of got to go to some interesting places, he was there and we really supported each other and trusted each other. I think trust is the most important thing. If the actors and the director and the crew trust each other and you set up perimeters and boundaries, you give everyone space to do great work. I think we’ve got an amazing costume department, amazing writers, directors — just give us an Emmy for everything.”
