Laura Donnelly gave her first interview that discussed Outlander to Fashion & Style. Donnelly plays Jenny Fraser, Jamie’s sister, on Outlander. She was only seen briefly during a flashback in the first half of season one, but she will on screen a lot more come April 4th. Donnelly discussed her part, how having a part from a novel is beneficial, and working with Caitriona Balfe, Tobias Menzies, and Sam Heughan (who she has known since college). Below are excerpts from the interview, but please head over to Fashion & Style to read the whole article.
“Jamie comes home to Lallybroch where Jenny is running the household in his absence. While I can’t say anything about Season Two, I do know that Jenny is in all of the novels.”
The Belfast native teased us by saying she got to spend a lot of time with Balfe onset because “we have many scenes together” and gushed over her co-star, adding “she’s brilliant!”
Donnelly also noted that Balfe “works harder than anyone else on set.” Although she has a strong work ethic, the “Outlander” star always maintains her friendly demeanor and is “a joy to be around!”
