‘Outlander’ Star Caitriona Balfe Explains How to Travel to France on a Budget

The Starz TV series “Outlander” took a turn this season when the Scotland-based show suddenly turned up in France. Turns out, though, that the cast and crew filmed many of the Paris-set scenes in Prague and on sound stages…in Scotland. I decided to have the star of the show, Caitriona Balfe, stop by the WSJ Cafe to explain the whole thing to me. She also talked a bit about her coming movie “Money Monster.” Watch the video.

Outlander” stars Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies stopped by the WSJ Café (The Wall Street Journal’s video interview series) to talk to me about the show’s first season, which kicked off its final batch of episodes tonight. I’ve been interested in the historical adventure fantasy  “Outlander” since the show started in part because I’m the author of a historical adventure (“Kingston by Starlight”) and a fantasy (“Game World”). When Sam and Tobias stopped by the Journal for a chat, they were game to talk about anything, including Scottish independence and adult spanking.

Watch the videos.
