Night shoots continue for “Outlander” season 3 in South Africa. Despite the associated challenges, the cast and crew are enduring it with their characteristic charm. Caitriona Balfe has shared a new picture from the set, teasing the beautiful scenery of the country in which they are filming.

Balfe didn’t say much about the picture, but teased that it was a view from her “Green Room.” She confirmed that they are still doing night shoots, which is very exhausting for the cast and crew. Both Balfe and Sam Heughan (Jamie) previously joked about the hard work this kind of filming entails.

All the work the team is putting in is well worth the effort. The show not only brings joy to fans of the book series, it also helps build the economy of Scotland and changes the lives of many.

In a recent interview with The Scottish Sun, author Diana Gabaldon gave fans an idea of how big of an impact her work is having on people. When she was doing a talk at the Wigtown Literary Festival, a farmer apparently turned up to say hello along with his goats. He wanted to thank the author, because his whole farm was saved thanks to the money he earned by renting out his goats for the show.

Gabaldon went on to reveal how language consultant Adhamh O Broin told her that the show is helping regenerate the Gaelic language. He also told her how a weaving factory in the Borders was about to close down, until orders for tartan for the TV series helped save it from bankruptcy.

The author’s husband rightly remarked that “Outlander” has “elevated the Scottish economy, saved the woollen industry and regenerated the Gaelic language.” For Gabaldon, the effect her work is having on the lives of people blows her mind every time.
