Outlander does baddies and villains quite well,” Caitriona said. “[The Christies] aren’t your typical villains, which is great and refreshing.”

She went on to praise her new costar, Northern Irish actress Jessica Reynolds, who plays Malva Christie.

“Claire and Malva build a great relationship and bond,” she revealed. “It’s very destabilizing for Claire. It’s a really heartbreaking, but a really twisted narrative that they all get embroiled in.”

Caitriona also discussed her new film Belfast, which she stars in opposite Jamie Dornan.

“When you get a script about Northern Ireland or that takes place in Northern Ireland, it’s always about the ideology. And this was about the people, the community, the heart,” she said of the film. “You want to just get people to see that this is what’s important; this rubbish about our side, their side, [director Kenneth Branagh] speaks to it so well in the film. It’s just so ridiculous. We’re all human beings, everyone has dreams, we’re all that little kid, we’re all Buddy at some point. It’s so important to connect to that and remember that and to see that your supposed adversary is the same.”

Outlander is set to return for season 6 in early 2022 and Belfast premieres in theaters Nov. 12.
