A storm threatened to disrupt filming of “Outlander” season 3. However, the team managed to get through without much difficulty. Co-executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts teased some pictures of the Cape Town skyline before and after the storm.

Just a few more weeks of filming are left for the show, cast members Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) had previously announced. But when a few storm clouds gathered at the horizon, the producers were concerned about the production getting delayed. Droughtlander is already the longest this year, and any delay would have put the team on an even tighter schedule.

The storm came and went without affecting the production team too much. Roberts took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and also shared pictures from the set.

Thick clouds with reddish hue covered most of the skyline of Cape Town, but they mostly cleared one day later. Both the occasions were a good photo opportunity that Roberts did not miss.

Meanwhile, a new Nell Hudson (Laoghaire) interview has been posted on YouTube. There has been talk about the actress showcasing her singing talents in the TV series. However, the actress confirmed this was not for the Starz show. She is also a cast member of “Victoria” TV series, in which she will be reprising her role. Hudson also spoke about Save the Children charity that she is promoting.

Talking about what’s in store for her character in “Victoria” season 2, the actress said that Skerrett’s career is going well as she is up for a promotion. She also gets new dresses in the show. Apart from the TV series, the actress is co-writing a “funny horror” movie with a friend.

Laoghaire will be having a daughter, Marsali (Lauren Lyle) in “Outlander” season 3. Hudson said it was “really weird” to have someone who is almost the same age playing her onscreen daughter. However, she added that the new cast member was easy to work with.
