Outlander season 5: Claire Fraser star spills all on ‘distracting’ new co-star


Outlander fans have been treated to their fair share of spoilers in recent weeks with showrunners dropping a number of spoiler photos of the time-travelling family on social media.

However, after it was revealed show will see a new addition to the cast back in May, Claire Fraser star Caitriona Balfe spilled in what it is like working with her “distracting” new co-star Adso.

Adso is the family’s new kitten and is set to make his first appearance in season five of the Starz drama.

Speaking at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, Caitriona began: “I mean he’s awesome!”

“It does create a lot of distractions because we all just want to play with the cat instead of doing any work.”

Although the fandom is already in love with new Kitten Aldo, the Claire actress has revealed he can be a troublemaker on set.

“He plays hard to get all the time, so it’s really quite embarrassing because it’s just Sam and I trying to get it’s attention and [The cat is] like, ‘Whatever!'” joked the star.

“He just wants to like find a spot in front of the fire and not play with us.”

Fans have been eager for another glimpse of the Kitten ever since Outlander first revealed the new addition in a set of popular tweets. 

The first tweet teased: “We have a very im-purr-tent casting announcement… who could it be?! #Outlander”

“Last season was really setting up the fact that the Frasers were in Fraser’s Ridge and that they were starting to settle.

“This year is really about this family coming to terms with a lot of consequences of things that happened last season.

“But there’s a settled nature to it and I think it’s a really strong, strong season.”

Does the settled nature of the next outing mean the family will come to terms with life in the past?

Outlander returns February 16 on STARZ and Amazon Prime Video.
