Caitriona Balfe has made her position as an actress immovable with the role of Claire, the main character of the drama “Outlander”. The performance with Sam Heughan, who co-starred as Jamie, impressed viewers, and Outlander has become a popular drama all over the world. Caitriona Balfe also celebrated the milestone of marriage/wedding and childbirth, and it seems that she is facing a new challenge as an actress. Based on her latest work, I would like to take a look at her career so far.

Caitriona Balfe appeared movie ‘Belfast’
As a child, Caitriona Balfe was raised in an environment where it was common for her to walk past cars carrying British soldiers with machine guns, and for her family’s car to be screened for explosives. That’s because the small Irish village where she grew up was close to the British Northern Ireland border. It is said that bomb riots were common.
Caitriona Balfe appeared “Belfast” by Kenneth Branagh released in 2021. It’s a semi-autobiographical account of Branagh’s childhood. The film presents the Northern Irish city of Belfast in 1969, in the early days of violence and conflict from the Northern Ireland conflict. It’s shown from a child’s perspective.
Caitriona Balfe acts a mother of two, living in a city where conflict between Catholics and Protestants is escalating. In between her fear of leaving Northern Ireland and her desperate desire to keep her Protestant family safe, she acts the role of a mother who is torn apart. Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan plays Caitriona Balfe’s husband.
- Caitriona Balfe married a music producer in 2019. In 2021, she gave birth to a boy.
- Her latest work is “Belfast,” a movie about her hometown Ireland.
Feeling for hometown is same beyond borders. What is Caitriona Balfe feeling and thinking for her hometown through movie ’Belfast’? Sam Heughan, who co-starred in “Outlander” as Jamie, published a book about his hometown Scotland. I would like to support the main characters who created the world-famous drama in this world.
