In the interview, Balfe said, “Outlander does baddies and villains quite well, [The Christies] aren’t your typical villains, which is great and refreshing.” She also went on to say that “Claire and Malva build a great relationship and bond. “It’s very destabilizing for Claire. It’s a really heartbreaking, but a really twisted narrative that they all get embroiled in.”
