“Outlander” stars Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies sat down with Matte Babel at the Television Critics Association to chat about what’s in store for their characters in the highly anticipated third season of the show.
The cast remained tight-lipped when trying to describe what they could of the upcoming season.
“It’s always been a difficult show to describe,” Caitriona shares. “But I think this season may be the hardest one yet.”
And she’s not lying. Balfe’s character Claire believes Jamie (Sam Heughan) to be dead after time travelling back to her 1940’s life, leaving him to deal with the Battle of Culloden. But as the season three trailer suggests, Jamie not only survives, but finds his way back to Claire 20 years later.
The pair also have a daughter Jamie’s never met, Claire’s realized her dream of becoming a doctor and has some major drama with her husband Frank, who as fans of the show know, has a “complicated” part to play in the series, featuring in both the 1940s and as Black Jack Randall in the 1740s.
Something not complicated was the pair’s reaction to Heughan’s Men’s Health South Africa cover.
“That’s a lot of chicken,” Menzies quips with Balfe adding “I think it’s all makeup.” Watch more with the pair sounding off on Heughan’s abs below.
And it seems that Sam’s not taking himself too seriously, responding to the heckling with this tweet.
