Caitriona Balfe discussed the new season of “Outlander” and gave Jimmy Kimmel a rather unusual gift when she appeared on Tuesday’s “JKL!”
The 39-year-old, who plays Claire Fraser on the much-loved series, was told by Kimmel she couldn’t really leak any spoilers even if she wanted to because the show is based on Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling books.
Balfe explained, “When we go to do these press things we’re always told like, ‘This is a spoiler, that’s a spoiler’ but you’re like, ‘It’s in a book.'”
She added, when asked if things vary at all, “We change things here and there,” but insisted “for the most part” it’s similar.
The actress was then quizzed about the series’ huge fanbase, with her admitting things were crazy even in the early days.
“The series is huge, it’s been around for, like, 20 years. So when we started we’d filmed for about two months and Sam [Heughan] and I were brought to L.A. and we were brought to this auditorium where there were, like, 2,500 fans, who went mental.”
Balfe, who has been filming a movie with Christian Bale and Matt Damon, also told how she’d stolen something from Damon’s trailer for Kimmel, who has an ongoing “feud” with the actor.
