This was Balfe’s final screen test, while co-star Sam Heaughan had already been cast as Jamie.
Balfe talks about the challenges of starring ‘Outlander’ and what she enjoys about starring in it.
Outlander’s Tobias Menzies: “When I started acting, I found a place and a release which I didn’t find in my own life”
“There are two characters, but between each of them is a genuine range of psychologies and emotions.” – Tobias Menzies on his ‘Outlander’ Characters
“Having to put yourself in that place is tough. To sit in that emotional space, especially when you’re doing it day after day.” – Caitriona Balfe
