Caitriona Balfe is ‘terrified’ to direct Sam Heughan in Outlander episode for ‘jam-packed’ season 7

Balfe joked that she told Heughan she’d direct all his scenes in one take.

Caitriona Balfe is finally ready to direct an episode of Outlander — even if it scares her more than the looming Revolutionary War.

The actress confirmed on Wednesday’s episode of Live With Kelly & Mark that season 7 of the Starz epic will pick up where season 6 left off, with her character, Claire, “in jail, which is always a good place to be,” she joked.

“It’s such an epic season. The Revolutionary War has started. Our characters, Claire and Jamie, are caught up right in the middle of it, and I think this season is the most action, jam-packed, and sort of epic that we’ve done since season 1,” she promised, adding that she’s a bit apprehensive to step behind the camera to direct an episode of the time-hopping romantic saga.

“I’ve been asking for a while — it’s something I’ve been interested in,” she said. “Our crew have been so supportive. We’ve been there 10 years, so they’re like a proper family. It’s just been amazing. I started doing some second unit already, and I’m going to do a full episode.”

Though she’s “terrified” to helm an episode — and teased that she told her costar Sam Heughan that she’d direct all his scenes in one take — she said “it’ll be good” for everyone involved.

Balfe also stressed that season 8 will be the show’s last, but said season 7’s 16-episode run will satisfy viewers who’ve stuck with Claire and Jamie since the beginning.

“Her future is very precarious,” Balfe previously told EW of season 7. “We don’t really know what’s going to happen. All we know is that the normal systems of law have broken down.”

Outlander season 7 premieres Friday, June 16 on Starz. [Source]

A new royal court of famous faces could soon join the Oscars voting ranks.

The Academy announced Tuesday the list of 397 Hollywood and international film community professionals invited to join AMPAS’ 2022 class, including Outlander and Belfast star Caitríona Balfe, reigning Best Supporting Actress winner Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), and superstar musician Billie Eilish, who won Best Original Song for her James Bond theme “No Time to Die” earlier this year.

Joining the aforementioned trio on the list of invitees are CODA’s Best Supporting Actor winner Troy Kotsur, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jessie Buckley, Jamie Dornan, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Reinaldo Marcus Green, Finneas O’Connell, and Drive My Car mastermind Ryusuke Hamaguchi, among others.

About 50 percent of the invited class are from 53 countries and territories outside the United States. Overall, 71 potential new members are Oscar nominees, including 15 winners.

An invitation to the Academy does not automatically guarantee membership; those invited are often asked to join in more than one branches (such as Hamaguchi, who was this year invited to join both the writing and directing groups), and must formally accept their invitation before becoming official Academy members.

Caitriona Balfe Says Her 2022 Oscars Look Was Inspired by Cristóbal Balenciaga With “a Touch of Grace Kelly”

She also paired the retro ensemble with a Van Cleef & Arpels necklace from 1957.

When selecting her gown for the 2022 Oscars, Caitriona Balfe looked to the past for inspiration, taking her styling cues from one of the most iconic actresses in Hollywood history: Grace Kelly.

The Belfast star managed to perfectly capture the aesthetic of silver screen sirens of yesteryear in a custom white column dress by Louis Vuitton featuring bejeweled straps and a peplum that descended into a ruffled train. She completed the look with a Van Cleef & Arpels heritage necklace, as well as diamond earrings, a bracelet, and a ring from the brand. Balfe explained to Vanity Fair that, “The inspiration for tonight’s look was 1950s and ‘60s Cristobal Balenciaga creations.” It was during this time period that late couturier became synonymous with gowns designed to showcase a woman’s figure in unique ways, relying on large prints or enveloping the body in columns to abstract the silhouette. She added that she specifically “wanted Nicolas [Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s creative director] to play with that.”

Balfe was enamored with the final look the designer came up with, but noted that her favorite aspect was “how this beautiful silk taffeta back met with the crystal straps and flowed out in to this beautiful architectural train.” But, of course, no Academy Awards ensemble would be complete without some jaw-dropping pieces of jewelry to go with it. The actor’s heritage Van Cleef & Arpels necklace was a particular standout as she pointed out that it’s “a beautiful statement piece from 1957. It just fit so perfectly with my inspiration of ’50s Balenciaga with a touch of Grace Kelly and we accented it with gorgeous diamond earrings, bracelet and ring.”

Caitriona Balfe set to star in Netflix’s Pride and Prejudice adaptation

The Outlander stars’ filmographies continue to grow. Caitriona Balfe has another period drama in the works. She’s reportedly set to star in Pride and Prejudice on Netflix.

According to Pioneer Scoop, Caitriona Balfe has another project in the works. Just like her Outlander co-star Sam Heughan, she’s working on growing her filmography while still working on the STARZ series.

Balfe will reportedly star in Netflix’s Pride and Prejudice adaptation that is set to star Lily James in the lead role. It’s not yet clear who Balfe will play on the series, but she could be one of the sisters or a member of the High Society. Helena Bonham Carter and Eleanor Tomlinson are also reported to star in the series.

There is very little known about the adaptation so far. Only Pioneer Scoop is reporting the news, which makes it much harder to get all the information in place and confirm the truth.

What does Caitriona Balfe in Pride and Prejudice mean for Outlander?

Of course, when we find out that one of the Outlander stars is connected to another show or movie, it’s common to worry about what it means for our series. Surely the leads landing other roles means there’s a risk of Outlander coming to an end.

The two leads routinely state that they’re in Outlander until the end. The other projects are done when Outlander isn’t filming. We know that Heughan’s upcoming movie Everest will start filming n January 2022. Pride and Prejudice started filming in May 2021, although Balfe wouldn’t have been fully available until recently when Outlander Season 6 filming wrapped.

There’s no reason to worry about the stars leaving our series just yet. Not only are they under contract, but they are fully committed to the series for as long as it takes to finish up the story of Claire and Jamie.

Pride and Prejudice is set to release on Netflix sometime in 2022.
