Caitriona Balfe Talks Us Through Claire’s Tragedy On Outlander (Spoilers)
The scenes were devastating to watch, and the Outlander cast and crew went to great lengths to make sure they treated the tragedy with respect. Much of that burden fell to Balfe.
“When I got the script that Toni Graphia wrote, it was just so beautiful, and she filled it with so much care,” Balfe told Refinery29 via phone last week. “I remember crying when I read the script for the first time and thinking, Ah, this is so heartbreaking.“
To prepare for this storyline, Balfe read books on grief, including Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking and Blue Nights, memoirs in which the author recounts the loss of her husband and daughter. The Irish actress also tapped into the experiences of loved ones that she’d witnessed.
