New Caitriona Interview to Outlander TV News

A new interview made during SDCC to Outlander TV News and The MacGuffin was just released.

You can check some excerpts of the interview below, but for the full feature, go to the source at Outlander TV News.

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.

I TRAVEL THROUGH TIME

Caitriona Balfe, the Outlander’s star,is hitting the big time in Hollywood. And after shooting with Clooney and Julia Roberts, she’s ready to return to Scotland. With specific ideas, some style tricks and few regrets.
One thinks that some things can happen only in an episode of Sex and the City. Instead you can just walk in the West Village in New York with Caitriona Balfe (pronounced Catrina; it’s a Gaelic name) to suddenly glance at your side a coach with the advertising of Outlander, where she is the leading actress, exactly what it happens to Carrie in the unforgettable theme song. But Caitriona does not stumble: she mirrors herself in her image and smiles. “Thanks to the photo editing the scene seems almost heroic”,she says. “But looking at it I can only recall that my ass was freezing that day in the mountains of Scotland”. After leaving Ireland at 15 years old, entering the fashion industry as a model, last year she has been mentioned by Entertainment Weekly among the twelve Hollywood’s rising stars. Thirty-five years, 1.77 cm tall, a perfect body, icy stare and reminiscent features as Cate Blanchett, one of the actressess she likes more.

SDCC: Caitriona Balfe On ‘Outlander’ Season 2

“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)

Hero Complex’s studio session

Our gallery was updated with another portrait taken during Comic-Con, once again for LA Times, but this time to their Hero Complex segment.

LA Times – In homage to the San Diego Comic-Con conventions of the past, The Times’ Hero Complex set up a studio inside the hallowed falls of SDCC to produce tangible photos taken by a Polaroid Land Camera from the late ’60s. Much like the comics collected over the many years of SDCC’s long reign, eash image is a unique creation and celebration of pop culture. Eschewing the flash and using only San Diego sunlight to illuminate each subject, here’s a photo gallery collecton of what we created, and who stopped by.
