The Long Wait for a Breakthrough

Sophie Skelton, known for her role as Brianna Fraser in the beloved Starz series "Outlander," has revealed the emotional rollercoaster behind landing the iconic role. Despite eventual success, Skelton's journey to becoming Brianna was fraught with uncertainty and disappointment.

An Unexpected Second Chance

Skelton's commitment to the role was evident from the start. During her initial audition in 2014, she immersed herself in Brianna's character, even rushing to order the "Outlander" books overnight for deeper insight. “I just sort of fell in love with her,” Skelton confessed, underscoring her immediate connection with Brianna.

She seized the opportunity swiftly, finding herself in Scotland within days for fittings and rehearsals. The pace was exhilarating, marking the beginning of her transformative journey as Brianna Fraser.

Challenges and Triumphs

Portraying Brianna has been a blend of reward and challenge for Skelton. The character's intricate arc spans time travel, personal trauma, and profound growth. Skelton has openly expressed occasional frustration, feeling Brianna's evolution lacked the depth and consistency she envisioned.
