Caitriona Balfe has many challenging scenes to film as our beloved Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser.
I find her fearless, believable, and with a courage many actresses do not possess. She has the depth and resiliency her character requires,
She is quoted in reference to the intimate love scenes and violent scenes in the Herald.ie article “I think it’s because I trust my co-stars so much. I think that Sam, Tobias and I have built up such great friendships, that it makes it very easy when it comes to those scenes.”
The relationships between the co-stars id apparent offscreen as well at events and engagements we are privy to. I am grateful Caitriona has that safe and comfortable space to do her best work as Claire.
(I will say, I do not believe any of the scenes are raunchy nor does Cait refer to them as such. The Herald headline is misleading that way.)
