Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan were pleased by the reaction to the recent Wedding episode in their freshman Starz series.
A story first told more than two decades ago in Diana Gabaldon s Outlander novel, the marriage of Claire (Caitriona) and Jamie (Sam) is a big deal to fans. And Caitriona and Sam, who brought the wedding and wedding night to life on screen, saw plenty of Tweets and articles that confirmed that they delivered.
It felt really great, Caitriona told Access Hollywood on the People magazine s Ones To Watch red carpet in Los Angeles on Thursday evening. There s been such nice stuff written about how that episode was and I think we all really worked hard to make it as real [as possible] and give it the space that these two people -- their love could really develop and that it wasn t instantaneous sex and that they could just get over their nervousness and get through the night and I m really glad that people responded well to it.
Jamie got laid three times, so that s pretty good, Sam Heughan chimed in.
The two co-stars, who were named to People mag s Ones To Watch List, revealed to Access Hollywood that they actually screened the Wedding episode together.
Is it weird to say that we watched it together? ... With a bottle of wine, [a] couple of bottles of wine, actually, Sam said. Yeah, we were like, Yeah we gotta watch this.
Immediately following the wedding episode, Claire and Jamie s romance took a dark twist in the mid-season finale. At the end of the show s part 1 run, Claire was back in the custody of Black Jack Randall, and about to be tortured when her new husband, Jamie, appeared in the window with a gun.
Asked what s next when the show returns in 2015, the actors said more intensity.
I think the second part of the season s really strong, and so much happens and you really see the story ramp up, Caitriona told Access . And the great thing is that you ve gotten to know these characters so well over the first eight [episodes], and they ve really let this evolve and now it s like—
And now we get to mess with it, Sam said. And yeah, the stakes are raised, it gets darker, it s gonna be really gripping.
Outlander returns April 4, 2015 on Starz.
