Outlander: Season 7 part 2 teaser for STARZ drama

Fans of Outlander have been enjoying Catiriona Balfe as Clare Fraser for nearly ten years.

In season 8, Balfe will take her skills beyond her usual role, and will direct an episode of the popular show’s final season.

Appearing on Good Morning America, Balfe discussed her directorial debut.

“[I’m] really excited, I feel really fortunate to be given this opportunity on the show. It just felt like the perfect place to try something new,” Balfe shared.

“I’ve already been doing a little bit of second-unit this season and gotten to direct Sophie [Skelton] and John Bell, but not this man,” she said, referring to co-star Sam Heughan.
