Additional HQ images from the portrait Cait (and Sam) did to LA Times while on Comic-Con is now added to our gallery.
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.
Thanks to Claudia, we’ve been able to add in the gallery an HQ scan from the latest Entertainment Weekly issue (July 24), dedicated mostly to Comic-Con, together with an outtake from the photoshoot Caitriona and Sam did while at the EW Studios!
Caitriona is featured on W Magazine in its August issue.
While we’re still working on getting the scans, check the HQ photoshoot added in our gallery.
Edit: HQ scan is up in our gallery now.
As a model, Caitriona Balfe was well accustomed to disrobing in front of a crowd. Now that she’s an actress, playing the unabashed Claire in the wildly popular Starz show Outlander, the 35-year-old has discovered she isn’t quite as adept at being naked as she would have liked to think. “It’s a very different beast,” the Dublin native says. “As an actress, you want to be brave and go as far as you can. But sometimes, afterward, you wish you hadn’t been as brave, like when you’re watching and thinking, Oh, God.”
Based on the best-selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, the series, currently shooting its second season, follows Claire, a former World War II nurse who time-travels from 1945 to 1743 in Scotland. In the midst of political unrest, she becomes entangled with a Highlander, all while trying to return to the 20th century. Balfe was doing Margaret Thatcher impressions by the age of 4 and went on to study theater. But when she was scouted by a modeling agent at 18, the promise of international travel proved hard topass up. She doesn’t regret the detour. “I didn’t have the life experience or maturity in my 20s to bring what I can now to acting,” she says. Her next role, opposite George Clooney in Money Monster, is a PR exec for a financial company. “That was almost more alien to me than the time-traveling nurse,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, What do people do in offices all day?”
While looking for photos Caitriona took during this year’s Comic-Con, I found additional portraits from last year, now added to our gallery. Enjoy the new additions!
