Caitriona Balfe on the Red Dress: “I had to perfect the art of walking sideways”


IGN has an interview with Caitriona Balfe asking her specifically about the red dress she wears in Outlander season two.  When that first teaser art for the season was revealed, I think we all saw that it was revealing, but not until we saw a side view, did we see how it was built and how much more revealing it was.

“[The dress] was 4’2” wide, which meant I had to perfect the art of walking sideways,” Balfe recalled with a laugh during a recent interview. “If I had to go to the bathroom, everything had to get taken off and then put back on again. There was a lot of ‘I’ve had one glass of water, maybe I should wait for a few hours before I can have another one.’

“And it’s very open,” she said of the amount of cleavage shown. “I don’t think I was quite aware of how open it was, and then I saw it in the show and I’m like, ‘I was walking around like that for three, four days?’ It’s quite funny, but it’s beautiful. It’s a real fan moment. I think it had to be that impactful and special. It’s fun.”
