Outlander stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe turn a more creative hand to their TV romance in season five, with no signs of slowing down | michaelidato

"I think it's so aspirational and it's got that metaphysical quality to it," Balfe says. "It transcends time, it transcends physics ... It's otherworldly, but it's also very real.

The new season also marks a shift in the creative input Heughan and Balfe have in the series; both are now credited as co-producers on the series. "It's important to have a say," Balfe says. "We've built these characters from day one, and I think we feel, especially when so many of our core writers are not on the show any more and we've got new writers coming in, it's [important] to retain that through-line.

The new season focuses on laying the foundations of a new life for the couple in America. "I think we're now established there, and it feels like they're in a really good place with each other," Heughan says. "I think it's more about the family now and sort of using our relationship to protect the rest of the family. And not just the family, but the extended family, the people in Fraser's Ridge – the clan, I guess.

While the sixth season does not herald the end of the series – both Heughan and Balfe say they anticipate a seventh season at least – Balfe says there is a sense of custodianship of the characters and that she and Heughan have a stake in the outcome of the story.

MakkOlga michaelidato They are everywhere ❤🇭🇲

Heughligans michaelidato Sam Heughan's portrayal of Jamie is such a masterclass in acting. It's so much more than 'pin-up' or 'dashing'. His Jamie is sensitive, supportive, empathetic, loving; and those eyes speak volumes. Thank you Sam for this gift.

michaelidato Oh, Jamie Fraser is soooooo much more than a period pin- up boy especially in the hands of Sam Heughan. Mr. Heughan’s portrayal is nothing short of brilliant. Kudos to the entire Cast and crew of Outlander

michaelidato Still reading the books. Great series.

Not a stupid idea really

Trump’s ‘hilarious’ error raises eyebrowsSachin Tendulkar is one of the most loved sporting personalities in the world, but the United States President has evidently never heard of him. Why would he, it's not the NFL.. Americans don't follow any cricket. I don't think they even play it. Lol. Most people born 2000 onwards wouldn't know who he is. Hell, most people period wouldn't know who he is. Cricket sucks.

'Globally unprecedented' bushfires burned more than 20 per cent of Australia's forestsA new study shows more than 20 per cent of Australia's forests burned during this season's devastating bushfires. 'following a years-long drought linked to climate change' Haha, good try. And despite this no moratorium on land clearing. We need to listen to the science and act. Forrests are already starting to recover with green branches sprouting everywhere. Fake picture to drive your doomsday narrative
