In the horrifying scenes, she had been abducted and gang-raped by Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and his men for teaching women about sexual liberation.
Balfe revealed: “Even before we filmed it, we had already started the conversations about how important it was to see the recovery and the fallout, I’m so grateful that our writers were prepared to give a lot of air time to that.”
“I also think it’s important that we see a character like Claire, who often gets this moniker of being a ‘strong female’, that whether you appear to be strong on the outside, something like this will really shake you to your core.”
The actress added: “For Claire, who’s always been able to compartmentalise and move on from traumas before, we see her experience PTSD and make some missteps along her journey of recovery.”
Outlander season 6 is available to stream on March 6 on Starz in the US and Starzplay in the UK.
