Caitriona Balfe has announced that her Forget Me Not Scottish gin is now available to buy.

The Irish actress, who plays lead Claire Randall/Fraser in the show, first announced plans for Forget Me Not Gin this summer in a bid to support the arts and “acknowledge the positive contribution creative industries make to society”.

Speaking about the launch this week she thanked everyone who managed to buy a bottle already.

Speaking on Twitter she said: “I am so excited to announce that our limited edition first batch is on sale now. The launch went phenomenally and we do have a few bottles and anyone who wants to buy one of those should go to Forgetmenot.com.”

The gin is currently only on offer for those in the UK and the EU, but the Irish actress added that they are hoping to get it out to other international markets very soon.

She had previously spoken about how the “very special product” has combined her love of “collaborating with friends, drinking and finding ways to support” the beleaguered artistic community.

The special spirit is described as a “smooth botanical gin” distilled in the Highlands of Scotland – though the distillery hasn’t been named.

Outlander star Caitriona Balfe has launched her own Scottish gin – and it’s for a great cause.

The Irish actress, who plays lead Claire Randall/Fraser in the show, has created Forget Me Not Gin to support the arts and “acknowledge the positive contribution creative industries make to society”.

Posting on her official Twitter account, Caitriona wrote: “This is a very special product that has combined my love of collaborating with friends, drinking and finding ways to support our beleaguered artistic community.

“So I hope you enjoy and feel the love that has gone into Forget Me Not.”

The star had previously teased the new gin in a clip of her enjoying a G & T with her instagram star cat Eddie.

The special spirit is described as a “smooth botanical gin” distilled in the Highlands of Scotland – though the distillery hasn’t been named.

It’s created using botanicals including the Forget Me Not flower (which holds special significance on the show), rosehip, elderflower and interestingly beetroot.

A portion of the profits from sales of the new expression will go to support a number of charities and projects involved with the arts.

The first of which is the SWG3 Graduate Programme, which is based in Glasgow and offers a 12-month sponsored studio residency and commissioning programme to artists and designers each year.

Fans of Starz’s time-traveling love story Outlander will be intrigued. According to the show’s EP, Maril Davis, “something fun and new” will happen to the characters of Brianna and Roger in the upcoming Season 6.

Speaking during a PaleyFest panel discussion in Los Angeles, Davis did not elaborate further on this new storyline but said of the new season, “Jamie and Claire, their love deepens; Roger and Brianna, they have their own journey… and Caitlin [O’Ryan], who plays Lizzie, has a great story, and she’s such a great actress.”

Davis’ fellow EP Matthew B. Roberts also assured fans there will be no lull in the action enjoyed last season. “There are going to be joys, there’s going to be a drama, there’s going to be suffering, there’s going to be tears,” he said. “All of the above.”

Last season saw the action centered on Fraser’s Ridge, the homestead built in North Carolina by Claire and Jamie Fraser. Living on the brink of the Revolutionary War, they, and their daughter and son-in-law, Brianna and Roger, have faced execution, bereavement, sexual assault, kidnapping and even a snake bite.

The Season 5 finale of Starz’ mega-hit show Outlander was a deeply emotional journey for its leads, Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire Fraser, and Sam Heughan, as her husband Jamie Fraser.

Since its 2014 premiere, the show has led us through two hundred years of time travel for the star-crossed lovers, as they’ve survived everything from the Battle of Culloden, to marauding pirates. Now, in Season 5, the couple have attempted to settle in 18th century North Carolina, on the brink of the American Revolutionary War. But of course, in true Outlander fashion, things do not run smoothly, and by the finale, Claire and Jamie Fraser find themselves in a horrific situation.

The episode “Never My Love” follows Claire as she is brutally abducted and raped. Speaking via video conference during an AwardsLine screening series panel discussion on Thursday, showrunner, executive producer and writer Matthew B. Roberts talked about the decision to do extensive research into trauma and to partner with RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network).

“We wanted to be very careful with it,” he said. We have in the past on Outlander dealt with rape and sexual assault on the show so we have a lot of consultants, over the past six years, that we’ve been going to, and we mine their expertise before we even start the process.”

Balfe, who, along with Heughan was also a producer this season, added, “I think anytime you tackle the issue of sexual violence or rape, you want to do it the most responsible way you possibly can. What we’ve always done on Outlander is try to take a point of view and highlight something that can be somewhat helpful in terms of starting a conversation… We talked a lot with RAINN about how we could approach this and also in terms of having trigger warnings before the episode.”

Senator Norris will introduce the show, featuring a cast of noted Irish writers, actors, musicians, pundits, and everyone in between, reading extracts from Ulysses.

In the latest episode of The Times’ TV podcast “Can’t Stop Watching,” host and staff writer Yvonne Villarreal asks “Outlander” star Caitriona Balfe about her character’s harrowing kidnapping and rape in the Season 5 finale — a scene Balfe’s co-star, Sam Heughan, discussed during his own appearance earlier this month:

One of the things I love about Claire is that everyone talks about what a strong character she is — but there’s a danger, in that people sort of make that character Teflon. … I thought it was really important to show that no matter how strong you are, no matter who you are, if you go through something like this, first of all, you don’t know how your body is going to react. You don’t know how you’re going to be able to process it. And nobody comes out of anything like this unscathed.

You can listen the episode here to hear Balfe chat about sketching the “Outlander” cast, her love of “Cagney and Lacey” and co-starring with — maggots. [Source]



Two Scottish brothers have created a hilarious social distancing sketch called Star Force, which features James McAvoy and Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe and Steven Cree.

Kevin and Ross Mains, originally from East Kilbride, co-wrote the project with Brendan O’Rourke over Zoom after finding themselves having free time during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kevin Mains, 30, who is known for starring in Outlaw King, Shetland and Mountain Goats, said:

“There is no work for acting this now and it’s a good way to pass the time and have a laugh…. And when someone like James (McAvoy) says he’ll take part, it makes the message of staying at home easier to take as you’re seeing these stars adhering to the guidelines.”

Ross Mains, 25, best known for his comedic sketches on BBC The Social, directed the clip which has been watched over 700K times.

Ross had previously worked with Outlander star Steven Cree, who showed the video to his friend James McAvoy and the Hollywood star immediately wanted to be involved in a future production.

The sketch took just just over a month to make as the stars had to social distance due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Ross Mains said: All the directing would need to be done on WhatsApp, with the actors recording and sending their lines through the messenger!”

He continued to say: “Like any film there were reshoots and difficulties but the actors were all very understanding of it.”

In a new video, Caitriona Balfe is spending her day the way we’d like to be spending our time social distancing: on the beach, alone, reading poetry. The footage of the Outlander star was filmed back in February, months before the concept of quarantines and lockdowns had even crossed our minds, but now, the clip of Balfe in solitude is even more relevant.

The short film was shot by photographer and director James Houston—an old friend and frequent collaborator of Balfe’s—in L.A. In it, the actress runs barefoot on the sand, laughing with the wind blowing in her hair.

“Shooting Caitriona is always such a wonderful and rewarding experience,” Houston tells BAZAAR.com. “She is a dear friend and a true natural beauty. Even though her star has risen over recent years as a respected actress, she has remained the same grounded and humble girl I met years ago. I loved this shoot of her because it showcases her timeless beauty. I chose to take her to the ocean with minimal styling, hair, and makeup to capture an intimate, raw portrait of her.”

In the background, Balfe narrates the poem “He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven” by W. B. Yeats, which was a collaborative choice made by both the actress and director. “After I directed this piece for Caitriona, I was thinking about what to put behind the visuals,” Houston explains. “I know Caitriona is well read and loves poetry, so rather than just use a music track, I asked her to send me a few of her favorite poems. I chose W. B. Yeats as it just felt right for Caitriona and the visuals. After recording her reading the poem (which only took two takes), we added the sounds of the ocean and birds. I really love the result.” [Source]



Outlander fans are usually good at reaching consensus decisions.

Most romantic episode of the series? Season one, episode seven: The Wedding. Sassenach? A pet name we’d all like to answer to. Costumes? Gorgeous. Jamie? Very sexy. Roger? Problematic. (And if you don’t agree with that last one, take it up with my Stylist colleague and fellow Outlander correspondent Hollie, who has been writing about how annoying she finds Roger for months now.)

So, given our hive mentality, if you ask an Outlander fan which episode broke their heart into pieces and scattered them into the winds, their answer will probably be the finale of season two. This is the episode when Jamie (Sam Heughan) tells Claire (Caitriona Balfe) to go back to her present day, leaving him behind on the eve of the Battle of Culloden. Jamie, knowing that Claire is pregnant with their child, is making the ultimate sacrifice so that he can protect the woman that he loves.

“This child will be all that’s left of me, ever,” he tells her.

Claire, distraught, begs him to come with her. But Jamie refuses. “Even if I could go back through the stones, it’s not my place. My destiny lies on Culloden Moor. I’ll find you. I promise.”

For Outlander fans, Jamie and Claire’s farewell is one of the most emotional scenes in the series, equalled only by their eventual reunion, after half a long and weary season, at the print shop in season three.

Now, in a Q&A staged on Twitter after a fan event was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, Balfe has said that filming the farewell scene was the most emotional moment for her in all her years making Outlander, too.

“Saying goodbye to Jamie end of season two,” was Balfe’s response, when asked which scene in the series was “particularly sad and heartbreaking to shoot”. She also name checked Faith, season two’s seventh episode, for being emotionally draining.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you have not yet watched the fourth episode of Season 5 of “Outlander,” entitled “The Company We Keep.”

After the horror show at the Beardsleys’ cabin in last week’s “Outlander” episode, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) found themselves heading out to rejoin the militia with an infant in tow. They caught up with Roger (Richard Rankin), Fergus (Cesar Domboy) and the rest of the men in Brownsville where all hell had broken loose.

It all started because one of Jamie’s men, Isaiah Morton (Jon Tarcy), had an affair with Alicia Brown (Anna Burnett), the daughter of Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and niece of Richard Brown (Chris Larkin), the men for whom Brownsville is named. Her father disapproved not only because Alicia and Isaiah weren’t married, but also because he lost out on the dowry her betrothed had promised the family.

So when Roger, Fergus, Isaiah and the militia came riding into town, Lionel and his men started shooting at them, demanding they turn Isaiah over for what he did to Lionel’s daughter. Roger tried to make peace by breaking out Jamie’s whiskey, but then he had to tell Lionel that his settlement was required to provide men to the militia. Lionel refused and said Roger was lucky his men hadn’t killed Isaiah for what he did.

So then Lionel refused to provide men to fight and still wanted to exact revenge on Isaiah, but Roger also managed to lose some of Jamie’s militia members in the process. They didn’t approve of him putting his weapon down and trying to reason with Lionel and they left. So things were in a fine state when Jamie and Claire finally arrived.

Roger filled Jamie in on what happened and Jamie wryly asked, “What were you going to do when the whiskey ran out?” Roger replied, “I was hoping you would arrive before then.”

Jamie gave Roger a bit of a dressing down at how he handled the situation, though it really seemed like Roger was doing his best. Anyway, Jamie insisted that Isaiah marry Alicia and that was when it came out that Isaiah was already married. Jamie dressed Isaiah down as well, but then he cut him loose and let him run off so that Lionel and his men wouldn’t kill him.
