Here’s a guide to the characters of the sexy Starz drama.
“Outlander” season 3 is set to premiere on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 8 p.m. EDT on Starz. “We had such a short space of time to try and accomplish [their relationship] at the end of season two, so to be able to have that time this season to really get to know each other has been great”. Of course, there’s also her marriage to Frank (Tobias Menzies) in 1948 to contend with (just a small snag) and a newborn baby. Will she miscarry again or will she have this child?
“[Aging] was more about the experiences happening to him, about shutting down from the world”. She will do anything to get back to him.
“Physically he’s not as proud”.
“I think the reunion and everything that’s going to happen once Jamie and Claire see each other, I think it’s really special”, Balfe said to Vanity Fair. “I think we’re all ready”. No, it centered on what everyone thinks about when they think of Outlander: the sex scenes.
“It’s a very different place”.
After almost dying on the battlefield at Culloden, Jamie spends the next 20 years in hiding, in prison, as a servant to a British family and as a printer in Edinburgh.
Balfe admits that Claire’s journey over the 20-year time jump in season three has been both a fashion-lover’s dream and an exciting hurdle for her as an actress.
‘I’d say this: Diana Gabaldon has very good taste, and she would know a fine a** if she saw one, ‘ he joked. By that bit more, I mean that Balfe and Heughan are stronger than ever this year, as is the excellent Menzies. “It’s the ultimate project for Roger”, Rankin says. “F-ck you, I’m going to go to medical school”. “Once he’s committed to that, he’s going to stick with it”.
Two different actors play Fergus, Claire and Jamie’s adopted son. The younger version is Berrux, who also played Fergus in season 2, while the older version is played by newcomer Domboy. ‘Really, I feel very fortunate that she’s given me that title’.
A very important character reappears on the show, this time as a grown man, when Lord John Grey is sent to be the new governor of Ardsmuir Prison. “I hope that what we’ve done is try and ground it as much in realism as we can”. It’s a very complex relationship as well, especially for Jamie. “Coming from his history with the red coats, it’s a tough barrier for him to get over, but they do develop this quite intimate friendship”. Though they agreed to stay together and raise Brianna as their own, Claire will have trouble forgetting her Scottish love.
Donnelly added, “It absolutely breaks Jenny’s heart to see Jamie like this”. Without revealing too much, I’ll also note that episode six is a can’t-miss installment of this series, both for die-hard fans and anyone who believes that television has lost all its sense of romance. Will that continue this season? At the beginning of Season 3, the pair struggle to move forward after Claire’s infidelity.
“Sophie [Skelton] is an wonderful actress, and I always forget that she’s so young because she’s just a really smart, self-possessed girl”, the brunette beauty gushed of her on-screen daughter.
“Laoghaire will always love Jamie, for sure, and I do think there’s a tenderness on his part for her”, Hudson said. I wanted to give Jamie’s POV of the same moment. “And I think he loves [Laoghaire’s children] Marsali and Joan”. Claire and Jamie have a real relationship, and their connection is more than chemistry; it’s the work that goes into any couple’s emotional and sexual life. I think that’s her gift in life-to be a healer of some description-but she would be appalled at the conversation around women’s health and women’s rights at the moment.
