On Thursday evening, OutlanderKatrina Balfe visited The Stephen Colbert Show talk about your new film, Belfast, for which she received her first ever Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress the same day. Balfe chatted about everything Belfastand also what it’s like to be a mother for the first time in 5 months and of course the upcoming sixth season Outlander. She also recently admitted that she had a very amazing Outlander meeting with fans in her dentist’s office.
Balfe said that she recently had to go under anesthesia during a dental operation. The anesthesiologist happily entered the room with Outlander mug and said “I’m your BIGGEST fan”. Balfe said she was interested as she thought, “That’s good, she’ll really take care of me.”
But then her biggest fanstarted asking Balfe what’s going to happen in Outlander, which Balfe is unable to answer. Ma’am, this is a spoiler-free operation. And then, when Balfe was injected with something good and she began to fall asleep, her anesthetist began to sing Outlander theme song! You know one: “Sing me a song about the girl who’s gone.”
“Nooo, that’s not what I…” is the last thing Balfe remembers. Don’t sing her a song about a girl who’s gone, especially when you’re anesthetizing her. Cause she’s literally a girl who’s about to become gone. Colbert laughed and asked if she thought she’d wake up in the 1700s in Scotland, and Balfe said, “I thought I’d end up in the basement with all the Jamie posters everywhere!” sufferingbut do it Outlander with the side of the teeth.

on twitter, Outlander fans celebrated her SAG Award nomination and her appearance in Colbert. The dentist’s office isn’t the only awkward place Balfe is referred to. Some years ago, Excited fans caught her in the locker room of the spa.as soon as she finished dressing! All they say is time, but maybe give her a minute to get dressed. Or get out of anesthesia.
Belfast was also nominated for Best Ensemble at the SAG Awards, and director/writer Kenneth Branagh won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay. Balfe stars in the film alongside Jamie Dornan, Jude Hill, Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds. Balfe also revealed that she took her mother to Belfast the premiere was especially significant because usually her mother falls asleep watching her.

Balfe confirmed that not only will Season 6 air in March, but Season 7 will also begin filming soon. In case you forgot what happened in season 5, Outlander The cast have released a 60 second recap of season 5 and let’s just say some of them are very good at quick summaries (ahem, Balfe) and some are not (ahem, Sam Heughan). But the winner is definitely John Bell, who at some point simply exclaims: “Aaaah!” He has our voice to sum up each episode. John Bell for the president’s resume. Heughan comes in second with the answer “I don’t know”. And Balfe ends it with, “And then they live happily ever after, no, they don’t, but you have to watch the rest.” OutlanderIn short, now go and see. Everything five seasons. You have time.
