Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) have lived different lives during the time of their separation, “Outlander” season 3 will show. In a new interview, the actors playing these roles spoke about how their respective characters' experiences have had over the years have turned them completely different.

In an interview with ET Online, Heughan said the two main characters have ended up becoming different people. The two will have to deal with different circumstances, too. While Claire has to try and connect with her family, Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Frank (Tobias Menzies), Jamie spends a lot of time alone in a cave.

The other more important aspect of the show this year is the fact that both Jamie and Claire will be older. While fans have already seen the older version of the Sassenach, this will be the first time they will be seeing the Scottish warrior age.

Jamie has some greying hair and a limp. He also gets a walking stick as an accessory. It will be interesting to see how the makeup team will age the character with fine lines and wrinkles, at the same time retaining his heroic and handsome features.

For Claire, fans will get to see her age over the decades. The TV series will show snapshots of her life from the 40s, 50s and the 60s.

The cast members are keenly aware of the expectations from “Outlander” season 3, especially since the scenes from “Voyager,” on which the plot is based on this year, has some of the fan favourite scenes. Balfe hopes they will be able to meet expectations this year with their performance.
