HARPER’S BAZAAR – ophie Skelton’s trademark long chestnut hair is knotted in a tight bun, precisely placed high atop her head—exactly the style you’d expect from a Royal Academy-trained ballerina. Despite the early call time for her first major fashion shoot, an unfazed Skelton arrives effortlessly polished post dance session in her hotel room (she always packs pointe shoes when traveling), sporting an adopted LA uniform: leggings, plain T-shirt, and an unassuming cardigan.

The 23-year-old UK native—who plays Outlander’s youthful, fiery, stalwart Brianna Randall Fraser, the daughter of an 18th-century Scottish Highlander and a time-traveling English WWII nurse—is fresh off her first trip to Comic-Con, where screaming devotees flocked in droves to see her. Despite some initial trepidation, Skelton, who grew up in the quiet English countryside of Manchester, says she was grateful to leave San Diego with a strengthened connection to her fans. “I was unsure what to expect, to be honest, but it was really rewarding,” she explains from the makeup chair of a sun-drenched studio. “They give us so much support, it’s nice to be able to give even a little bit back—to meet them and give them a hug, or whatever else they need.”

Skelton, who began her performative career with dance at age three, carries herself as someone braced to handle her rapidly blossoming career with expert poise and dignity: she’s more gentle and curious than intimidating. The actress, who enjoys baking and binge-watching Stranger Things in her downtime, comes from humble roots, where she picked up acting in various small theater productions at school. But her appetite for television was unshakable. “I had always wanted to do the discreet acting that you can’t really do with live theater,” she explains. “In TV and film everything is really underplayed, and I liked that aspect.” Eventually, Skelton cut a deal with her parents: if she were accepted into university, they would grant her permission to defer a year and dip her feet into full-time acting. Less than a year later, she was offered her largest role yet in Outlander. Here, Skelton opens up about her headstrong character; pushing forward despite the odds stacked against her; and dealing with new-found fame.

Brianna Randall truly is her mother’s daughter.

While we’ve still got a ways to go before we get any new footage from Outlander season three, that doesn’t mean there aren’t still new treats to enjoy, like this exclusive deleted scene from the season two finale, which you can find on the season two blu-ray when it’s released tomorrow, November 1.

In the clip, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) decide to spend an extra day in Scotland, and Roger (Richard Rankin) has a couple of ideas as to how to spend their extra day. But if he thinks that he’s taking Brianna to a tourist trap like Loch Ness, he’s clearly lost his mind.

Instead, they decide to “find some history,” while Claire has other ideas that have more to do with “Brianna’s father.”
