If we talk about period series, it is inevitable not to think of Outlander. And it is that throughout all its seasons, inspired by the saga of novels by Diana Gabaldon, its production has known how to turn it into a true phenomenon. However, this could take an unexpected turn after Caitriona Balfe, its protagonist, publicly sue those responsible for the fiction.

Since the beginning in 2014, the actress has given life to Claire Fraser, earning the affection of fans around the world and thus catapulting himself to continue being part of successful projects. Despite this, his name is directly associated with Outlander and it is for this reason that his particular comment in an interview caught the attention of the followers of the series.

Balfe is also part of the cast of Belfast, the film that is shaping up to be one of the great candidates for the 2022 Oscars. It was there that she felt inspired to start produce your own projects, but apparently he did not achieve it as he wanted in the Starz series. “With Sam Heughan we’ve been on the show and on the set every day since the first season. I’ve been knocking on that door wanting to do that for quite some time“, he pointed.

Apparently, on several occasions she asked the production to become one of the directors of Outlander. “It’s something I’ve been talking about on the show but it’s falling a bit on deaf ears”, he continued. He also added: “I’m very close with the entire camera team and whenever they had conversations about what lens they were using and what frame it was, they were really helpful in giving me all the information I wanted. It’s a shame, but it’s out of my hands”.

In just a few weeks, the new episodes that will be part of the sixth season will be revealed, which began filming in early 2021 after the delay caused by the pandemic. The seventh installment is about to start filming and this could be Claire’s last appearance on screen. Rumors indicate that the contract of the protagonists will expire this year. However, the project aims to have at least 10 parts, just like the Gabaldon saga.
