Outlander cast tease details of ‘exciting’ season six
Marsali (played by Lauren Lyle) became a kind of surrogate daughter for Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) due to her marriage to Fergus (Cesar Tomboy). Claire had left her own daughter behind when travelled back in time to the 18th Century to reunite with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) in Outlander season three. When Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton) followed her mother through the stones at Craig Na Dun to warn her she’d found the Fraser’s obituary, fans may have expected the redhead to clash with Marsali. Instead they have formed a sisterly bond, which actress Caitriona was in favour of.
It would have been easy to see Marsali, who has been training as a surgical apprentice with Claire as her mentor, go up against Brianna.
However, the women have instead formed a strong bond as young mothers who simply want the best for their family in tough times.
Speaking about Marsali and Brianna’s close bond, actress Sophie revealed it was Caitriona who was adamant they didn’t fight with each other.
She explained: “That’s one thing that I know Caitriona really fought for was to make sure that the women weren’t all batting off each other—that Marsali and Brianna weren’t fighting for Claire’s attention or anything like that.”

Sophie noted their bond was evident when Claire was welcomed back to the Ridge by Marsali and Brianna after she was attacked in the season five finale.
She told Collider: “That moment sums that up beautifully in that it’s almost a thank you from Brianna, too.
“She knows that Marsali has been there for Claire. Brianna doesn’t like blood, so she hasn’t been helping with the surgery and any of that and she loves that her mother has an apprentice to do that with.
“She’s very grateful for Marsali for that.”
The actress continued: “Obviously Marsali and Claire have just been through something together that Brianna wasn’t privy to and didn’t know what happened.
“So she sees that Marsali’s been beaten up too, and just for them all to just be together in that moment and feel safe and even the way Bree steps back for a second just to give those two a moment, because they’ve obviously been really worried about each other.
“I think it all just plays out really beautifully and really natural and yeah, they’re all just supporting each other and knowing that they’re safe.”

It’s none exactly what is in store for the Frasers when season six finally hits television screens but viewers know to expect the Revolutionary War.
This will no doubt cause trouble for the family as much of the fighting took place in North Carolina.
Could the Frasers and MacKenzies be split up amongst the fighting and be forced to spend time apart?
Teasing the new series at Paley Fest LA last year, Sophie told fans: “Everything that could happen to a person, Brianna has pretty much been through.
“But I know that there is even more happening next season and it will be exciting to see what’s left to do.
“It is always amazing and I have a feeling it will be an absolutely packed season.
“It will be nice to get back together and see the crew and everyone.
“We really are a family up in Scotland, so it will be great to get everyone back together. If they can come into the country.”
Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video and Starz now.
