‘Outlander’ Caitriona Balfe is Making Sam Heughan Jealous, Spends Days with ‘Pure Magic’

Droughtlander is probably draining most fans now, but no more worries, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have promised that Outlander Season 3 is worth the wait. Since the filming has already wrapped up, the actress has taken some solo time to explore the world of South Africa and its “pure magic.” Recently, she shared the photos from her getaway, displaying the wonders of the safari reserve.

While everyone has to stay calm until the September premiere, the onscreen couple has been teasing tidbits of information through cute Twitter conversations for their dedicated followers. Now that the Season 3 filming is finished, the cast members could take a break from the set and enjoy it to the fullest.

Needless to say, Balfe seized her days in Cape Town by exploring the perfect South African safari destination. Heughan was out of sight during the trip and is probably sulking at the missed opportunity to enjoy wildlife with his co-star.

Outlander Caitriona Balfe Spends Time in Pristine South African Wilderness

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe spent most days together in Cape Town as they filmed the sea voyage scenes for Outlander Season 3. In previous social media posts, fans saw the duo enjoying the rugby game and shopping at the mall in South Africa. But this time around, the actress appeared to have taken a moment to explore the place without her co-star beside her.

The 37-year-old beauty shared a snap on Instagram with a caption: “It’s been an amazing few days. Too short but yet filled with pure magic. Thank you.” One of her fans commented, “So glad you got to start your much needed break in an enjoyable way! Mind you, you and @samheughan make work look so fun! Thanks for sharing the fascinating wildlife shots! #elephants #love.” Another wrote, “How wonderful Cait! So happy for you to get to experience such an amazing treasure! What a beautiful thing to do!”

In another post, Balfe shared a photo featuring the rhinos and captioned it with: “Still can’t quite believe all the amazing encounters we had.” The actress thanked Kariega Game Reserve, a family-owned private safari reserve located in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. This malaria-free game reserve gives you an opportunity to get a close-up encounter with the country’s wildlife including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, leopards, and others.

Outlander Star Caitriona Balfe Has Near Miss on Set

Outlander’s lead lady, Caitriona Balfe almost lost an eye during that last day of shooting because of a log.

The star tweeting out the following

 

Sounds like it wasn’t the logs fault after all but the her co-star Sam Heughan’s steering skills. Sam how could you scar that Cait’s pretty face. Bad Sam!

via GIPHY

Sam of course had a rebuttal for Cait

All I can say is Sam better watch out because I’m sure Cait will have the last laugh if she hasn’t already.
Never underestimate a woman Sam.

Oh this banter just keeps going on…hehehe

That’s a Wrap! Outlander Celebrates the Completion of Filming Season 3

Outlander cast and crew celebrated end of filming season 3 today.  Now it’s on to the editing room.

Outlander season 3 will follow Diana Gabaldon’s 3rd book in the Outlander series titled Voyager. A good number of book fans will tell you that Voyager was one of their favorite books including myself.

Warning may contain spoilers!

Voyager begins right after battle of Culloden between the British and the Scots.   At Jamie’s insistence Claire has went back though the stone to 1948 because she was carrying Jamie’s unborn child and he wanted to protect her from the battle.   One of the reason’s this is a favorite book is that it tells of Jamie and Claire’s lives without each other for 20 years. When Claire discovers that Jamie didn’t die on Culloden battlefield and she decides to go back through the stones to reunite with him.

This reunion is one of the most anticipated events for season 3 by fans and is referred to as The Printshop scene.

Outlander writer, Diana Gabaldon confirmed herself that the Printshop scene meets with her approval.

 

To which she replied

Other scenes fans are looking forward to are the Brothel, & Turtle Soup. There are far too many good scenes in this book and fans are hoping that they don’t get put on the cutting room floor.

So today was the last day of Outlander filming and Twitter lit up like a jar full of lighting bugs you caught on a summer’s evening. Here are some of the happenings across social media today.

After Roark gyms in South Africa announced that Sam would be doing a Facebook live with them he posted on Twitter the following.

Caitriona sent out a thank you to the crew for all their hard work.

All writer/producer Matt Roberts had to say was…

No wonder the man is tired he’s work is never done.

Caitriona says this season has been like birthing a baby. Which is appropriate since her character Claire does give birth in season 3.

It’s a wrap party birth pool

That’s a wrrrrrrrrrap !!!! #Outlander #waterwatereverywhere #lastday #poolbirthofvoyager @samheughan

Frank and Black Jack Randall might be around as long as #Outlander is — and we don’t necessarily hate it

We already know that we’ll be seeing more Frank (Tobias Menzies) in Season 3 of Outlander than book fans would expect, but it may not be the last we see of Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) first husband, or his evil 18th century ancestor.

Diana Gabaldon’s book Voyager, on which the third season is based, is the last time Claire is in the 1900s. That means there aren’t a lot of pages of Frank’s story left in the book series. The show will already expand on Frank’s presence by exploring what Claire’s life was like with Frank after she returned through the rocks before the Battle of Culloden — pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child — more deeply.

It’s a period that Outlander executive producer Ron Moore says is necessary to understand who Claire is when she learns that Jamie survived Culloden 20 years after the fact.

Tobias Menzies, <em>Outlander</em>Tobias Menzies, Outlander

“The story requires [Frank]’s presence. Claire, from the beginning, was married to Frank and spent the entire first book trying to get back to him,” Moore explained to TVGuide.com at the ATX Television Festival in Austin. “She’s found the love of her life in Jamie Fraser, but there’s still this man that has this hold on her so she feels like she needs to go back. That to me says that’s a really strong character and an important character. To understand Claire, you need to understand the nature of that relationship with Frank.”

Frank remains an important part of the story in Season 3 as we have to learn who Claire and their daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) have become in the time they spent with him in Boston.

“When she returns to the 20th century, Frank raises Brianna. Again, he’s a very important figure in the story,” Moore said. “He is the father figure that Brianna knew as opposed to Jamie. Claire spent 20 years with him before he died. We needed to bring that part of the story forward to really understand how all these things work.”

Voyager marks the last serious mentions of Frank and his 18th century counterpart Black Jack Randall in the Outlander book series. Frank dies in the 1960s and Black Jack is fated to die in the same battle Jamie survives. However, Season 3 may not be the last we see of Claire’s first husband or the man who terrorized her and her husband in the past.

Moore admits that is in part because actor Tobias Menzies does such a tremendous job inhabiting both roles. The show isn’t afraid to embrace future mentions of either character as a chance to bring Menzies back in later seasons.

Outlander Season 3 Spoilers: Claire and Jamie Will Be Apart for a While at the Start of the Season

“Droughtlander” might be ending in under three months, but that doesn’t mean that Outlanderfans are going to see their favorite couple back together when the show returns.

Outlander last left off with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) separated by 200 years of history. Claire had returned to the 1940s before the Battle of Culloden to protect their unborn child while Jamie went back to fight with his countrymen and presumably die.

It took Claire 20 years in her own timeline to discover that Jamie had managed to live through the bloody battle. She ended the Season 2 finale declaring to her now adult daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) that they have to go back to find Jamie. Unfortunately, the search for him will not be that easy.

“We’re going to keep them apart for a while,” executive producer Ron Moore teased to TVGuide.com at the ATX Television Festival in Austin.

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, <em>Outlander</em>Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, OutlanderClaire and Jamie’s separation tracks with how Diana Gabaldon’s third book in the Outlanderseries, on which the show is based, plays out. Moore admits that some structural changes are being made to the story, but reuniting Claire and Jamie right off the bat is not one of them.

“The majority of the major events are in the season, but we are probably going to reorder them and present them slightly differently,” Moore said. “The third book is a clean narrative as opposed to the second book –which was a very complicated narrative. It still went to Jamie’s storyline for a very long time and then Claire catches up.”

The beginning of the season will do a lot to fill in the story of Claire’s life with Frank (Tobias Menzies) in Boston after she returned through the stones at the end of Season 2.

“One of the things we wanted to do was talk about what Claire was doing in those 20 years as well,” Moore said. “The way we’ve structured the season allows you to experience both [Jamie and Claire’s lives] at the same time.”

That may sound like terrible news to some fans, but luckily Claire will have some assistance in finding her way back to Jamie. Brianna and Roger (Richard Rankin) will be there to help her figure out what Jamie was doing in Scotland after he escaped the battle. Helping Claire will also help bring the young lovebirds closer together.

‘Outlander’ season 3 production update: Storm doesn’t halt filming in Cape Town; ‘Weird’ having daughter, says Nell Hudson

A behind the scenes picture of Sam Heughan (Jamie) for the sets of Starz TV series “Outlander.”

A storm threatened to disrupt filming of “Outlander” season 3. However, the team managed to get through without much difficulty. Co-executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts teased some pictures of the Cape Town skyline before and after the storm.

Just a few more weeks of filming are left for the show, cast members Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) had previously announced. But when a few storm clouds gathered at the horizon, the producers were concerned about the production getting delayed. Droughtlander is already the longest this year, and any delay would have put the team on an even tighter schedule.

The storm came and went without affecting the production team too much. Roberts took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and also shared pictures from the set.

Thick clouds with reddish hue covered most of the skyline of Cape Town, but they mostly cleared one day later. Both the occasions were a good photo opportunity that Roberts did not miss.

Is it September yet??? Outlander Filming Nearly Finished!

Anticipation is growing among the Outlander fandom as cast and crew take to social media. It’s always fun to see the banter going on between them as not only does it let the fans know little tidbits but it also shows the camaraderie between them all. One big happy Outlander family 😊

I’ve put together several posts and pictures posted that will surly have fans wishing summer was over already and September was here.

So here goes…

Recently Sam posted they were filming the penultimate which is the next to the last episode for the season

 

I can only imagine what we’ll be seeing when this airs but I really don’t want to think about that episode just yet because when it does air that will mean just 1 more episode 😢

Maril Davis, one of Outlander’s executive producer’s posted this photos of eggs made up to be Jamie & Claire on the beach that she and Caitriona drew. Can you guess who drew which one? 😂

And Sam replied…

Maril’s brother made this remark on her art skills…LOL

Well…Maril it was a good effort 🤦🏻‍♀️

Just like a man all Sam could think about was his stomach 😂😂😂

To be honest I’m not sure why Maril would need such a wintery hat when they are shooting in South Africa. Let me check the weather there BRB. Nope I wouldn’t see why she would need that but hey to each his/her own.🤷🏻‍♀️ At any rate Sam wants to borrow it 😆

I suppose he needs this for when they go back to Scotland & Maril says it’s his if he wants it.

Writer/Producer Matt Roberts also posts some of the most beautiful photos from Cape Town, SA

Before the storm #capetown #capestorm #stormofthecentury Wish us luck #outlander

A post shared by Matthew B. Roberts (@nofoolingproductions) on

Sam retweeted this picture of the recent Cape Town storm Matt was referring too.

Funny there should be a storm right when they are most likely shooting scenes that include a storm also. Sam referred to that early when he stated he had sand in places it shouldn’t be…hehehe

They are at the end of shooting season 3 with only about a week left according to Sam’s tweet.

To which Sam replys:

Filming maybe complete but there is still a lot that goes on behind the scenes after the shoot is over.

Sam says Cait is willing to lend a hand with editing if Matt needs it.

I don’t know about you but I think they better leave the theme & music in the hands of Bear McCreary. He hasn’t let us Outlander fans down yet with his choices. So Cait you needn’t worry about dragging out your accordion just yet.

‘Outlander’ fans: Your favorite show won’t earn any Emmy nominations 

Outlander” fans, don’t be upset when your favorite show doesn’t earn any Emmy nominations this year. Because “Outlander” didn’t air any new episodes during the eligibility period that ended May 31, 2017, it must sit out of this year’s Emmy race. Starz has announced that the hit fantasy series will premiere its third season in September 2017, so it will definitely be back for the 2018 Emmys.

Season 3 of “Outlander” will consist of 13 episodes based on “Voyager,” the third novel in Diana Gabaldon‘s eight-book series. The story will pick up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) returns to 1948 pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child. Her sudden return to the 20th century will have consequences for her marriage to Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, Jamie endures the aftermath of the battle of Culloden, and the two time-separated lovers try to make a life without each other. See our photo gallery of “Outlander” Season 3 spoilers down below.
