Balfe and Heughan chatted over Zoom for the ultimate episode of Outlander’s End of Summer Series on Sept. 13. Their chat raised cash for Doctors Without Borders, and noticed them reflecting about one episode nearly out of a Disney film. 

This may need been ‘The Happiest Scene of Outlander’ for Caitriona Balfe 

Disney isn’t a reputation you’d suppose to affiliate with Outlander. The present is stark in its depiction of brutality in historical past. Balfe mentioned this one mild scene did have hints of Disney.

“There’s one scene when we did that dance to the stones at the end of season 2,” Balfe mentioned. “Sometimes when you’re really lucky, everything conspires to work in your favor. I think we arrived on set that day and it was like somebody had Disneyfied the set. It was like this dusting of snow but it was a beautiful day.”

More magic occurred on the set of ‘Outlander’ too

The setting for Outlander‘s season 2 finale impressed each Balfe and Heughan to make up their stone dance on the spot.

“You and I were talking about we didn’t quite know what we were going to do,” Balfe mentioned. “We both just figured it out. It doesn’t feel like it’s me doing it. It just feels like it happens. I think that’s one scene that I think really sang and all the crew were like.”

Heughan agreed.

“It was really magical,” he mentioned. “You’re right. That was a great ending to that season.”

This scene was not magical for Sam Heughan 

Balfe requested Heughan how he favored his motion scenes in Outlander Season 5. Heughan saved it actual.

“I didn’t, to be honest,” Heughan mentioned. “I love the action. But, when you think of it was like four AM in the morning and you’re in the mud and you can’t see anything. I remember it was particularly cold and I couldn’t see anything. There was one point I was like, ‘I think I actually might hurt someone today.”

At least the scene was good for Heughan’s costar.

“Jamie [Payne] who directed it did an incredible job and the way it’s lit, it’s just so dramatic,” Heughan mentioned. “You see John Bell really becoming… That fight, there’sa small sequence where he has this fight with a couple of guys and then throws this tomahawk and knocks a guy out. I think he was not supposed to be doing that and he just kept doing it. And he got them every time as well.”
