‘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.

‘Outlander’ Season 3 Will Have ‘More Bedroom Scenes and Nudity’

While the Outlander Season 3 premiere is just three months away, onscreen couple Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe shared three things to look forward to in the upcoming installment. Reports also claimed that it would have more bedroom scenes and nudity, leaving fans thrilled with the thought of peeking at Jamie’s ripped torso again.

Everyone should not despair because the third season of the popular time-travel drama is set to be packed with action and drama. Author Diana Gabaldon previously assured that the new outing closely followed the book. She also revealed that it would be solving a major mystery in the novel that left readers baffled.

Three Things to Expect in Outlander Season 3

For those who have not seen the latest clip of Heughan and Balfe, the onscreen lovers are dressed in their 18th century attire as they dropped some scoops about Outlander Season 3. The two said, “We’re very excited to let you know we only have three weeks left of filming, it’s three months until the premiere and because of that, we’re going to give you three things to look forward to.” You can check the video below.

Balfe divulged the first hint, stating, “Well, I’m going to say you can look forward to some soup.” The turtle soup scene from Voyager novel happened when Jamie took care of Claire, who suffered from a fever caused by an infection. The Scotsman fed her alcohol-laced soup, which eventually made her drunk. Claire then enforced her husband to have sex with her, but Jamie was reluctant because of her situation.

Sam Heughan revealed the second thing that everyone should look forward. He yelled after Balfe said the first hint, saying, “Print Shop!” The particular scene refers to the location where Jamie and Claire finally reunited after 20 years of separation. Balfe promised in an interview that sex would still be steamy and hot even though the time-crossed lovers have aged. She admitted, “In terms of the sex, I think old people have good sex too, last I heard!”

The third thing fans can expect from Season 3 is the “lovely bunches of coconuts.” Balfe might be referring to Jamaica, where Jamie and Claire headed in the latter part of the novel. In the new place, the couple started a new action-packed adventure. Outlander returns to the television screens this September.

Speculations and Questions about the Third Season of Outlander

In a bid to help fans deal with the long droughtlander, there are speculations on what will be coming next in the TV series. Based on the books, Jamie and Claire’s marital relationship is going to get even more complicated. It can be recalled that the couple separated ways in Season 2. It was a heartbreaking moment as the Scottish warrior forced his wife back through the Standing Stones in a bid to protect her from the battle.

After falling back through time, the nurse will return to her husband Frank – who is left doubtful over her absence. While Claire tries to fix her marriage with her first husband, Jamie is set to marry Laoghaire MacKenzie. No doubt, things will get more complicated between the time-crossed lovers when she does finally show up after 20 years.

Another question among the readers is whether the TV series will spare Black Jack Randall on screen. It is known that in the opening pages of the Voyager book, the Outlander villain is very much dead. The third season will also display the bloody fight between Jamie and Captain Jack, as revealed in the photos from the upcoming run released last year.

Lastly, fans should be ready for more bedroom scenes and nudity in Outlander Season 3. Balfe previously revealed that the highly anticipated print shop scene would be worth the wait as it would feature more sexual intimacy between Jamie and Claire. She said, “I think it’s really special. Maybe they’ll have to wait a little bit, but I don’t think it’s going to be as scarce as last season, shall we say?”

Outlander season 3 will solve a major book mystery, says author Diana Gabaldon

As we continue to wait for Outlander season three (why do we have to hold out until September? WHY?) author Diana Gabaldon has been dropping hints about what to expect when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) return to our TV screens.

“I do think that season three is going to be remarkably strong. I’ve seen the first nine episodes now put together and they’re fabulous, the first six especially are very close to the book,” the author tells RadioTimes.com.

“There are things that Claire told her daughter in flashback that we now see more or less in real life. They have expanded some of those,” Gabaldon explains.

But it’s the little “tweaks and additions” the writers have made that sound the most intriguing – could they solve one of the books’ biggest mysteries?

“There has always been the question in the books as to whether Frank was or was not unfaithful to Claire during their marriage and I’ve always left it ambiguous,” says Gabaldon. “People make up their own minds, generally on the basis of whether they like Frank or not.”

The show will finally give readers a definitive answer to that question because the writers have had to “come down on one side or the other”. And is the author happy with the side they’ve picked?

“I think the TV show treats him very fairly,” she says. We’ll have to wait until September 2017 to decide if we agree.
