Jesus H Roosevelt Christ? She'll do fine!

And the winner is ... Caitriona Balfe!

I'm sure you'll agree that actress Caitriona Balfe is beautiful and I'm sure you'll agree that she is going to make an amazing Claire Beauchamp in the upcoming Outlander TV series.  It seems as if we have been waiting for decades (well some of us probably have) to see an incarnation of our favourite herione on the screen and I just LOVE what I'm seeing so far. 

When Diana Gabaldon broke the news she said 

"Hard to believe lightning can strike twice, but it surely did. The moment Caitriona Balfe came on screen, I sat up straight and said, ‘There she is!’ She and Sam Heughan absolutely lit up the screen with fireworks."

If that isn't a good enough testament to her suitability for the role then I don't know what is.  So far we know relatively little about Caitriona except that she's Irish and has starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. She's almost 34 and although she isn't a household name it won't be long before she is!
