‘Outlander’ Caitriona Balfe Talks About Claire, New Cast Members and Jaime

Caitriona Balfe who plays Claire in “Outlander” talks about work challenges, new cast members joining them in “Outlander” Season 2 and other stuff during the SDCC 2015! We’re still a couple of months away before the series hits our screens again but these details are enough to keep us going while we wait for the Starz series to return!

In “Outlander” Season 2, Claire will be in a completely different path as she and Jaime (Sam Heughan) escapes to France. This is going to be an interesting journey for Balfe’s character and she is so excited to be taking this new path,


“I think Claire is one who’s very reactionary, being thrust into this new world and having one event after another sort of happen to her. There wasn’t so much time for contemplation, or life was kind of thrust upon her rather than her figuring out what she wanted, and I think that Season 2 is very different. First o fall, they make this decision to try and change the course of history, and I think the pregnancy has a lot to do with that, and trying to lift Jaime out of some of the effects of last season, and give him a mission, something to strive to do. You see her trying to create a world that she wants to live in, and there are some incredible story lines and parts coming up. I’m really excited,” she said.

Balfe also talked about how her character feels and will handle the new environment of the French court. She said that it is such a huge adjustment for Claire especially that things will be different this time when it comes to her freedom because 18th century Scotland is where she was more free. Claire will be very uncomfortable in this new environment but the two new characters joining the show, Master Raymond and Mother Hildegarde played by Dominique Pinon and Frances DeLaTour will help her handle things in the French court.

In regards with Claire’s relationship with Jaime, both are still affected with what happened in “Outlander” Season 1 and in Season 2, Claire will need to put aside her own issues to help Jaime get past what’s happened. The good news is they will remain strong amidst everything.
