“So I was like, ‘Does your body know if you’re pretending to be stressed and upset and angry?'” “Because you’re going through all the motions to get to a state where you cry or scream or freak out, and there were times when I must have been four or five months pregnant and I was running around shooting guns.”

“And I say, ‘What does this kid think?’ It must be like, ‘Who the hell is my mother? What am I being born into?’”

Undoubtedly, every time Caitriona Balfe talks about Outlander she does it from her most sincere side and this time she was obviously no exception. Another of the revelations that surprised her was when she remembered her career in modeling, remember that before being an actress, she paraded for well-known brands such as Chanel and Alexander McQueen.
