The ‘Civilian’ Boyfriend
So, I’ve only been shipping SC ‘with’ you all since August sometime. And I don’t have the timelines of Caitriona’s schedule as dialed in as some of you. But one thing that keeps nagging me about her having a 'civilian’ boyfriend that SHE apparently didn’t have before Outlander began and only happened after she started filming OL, is this:
So she gets cast late August, early September 2013. Is in Scotland by mid September, is working, which includes learning script, meetings, horseback riding lessons, other lessons?, costume fittings, annndd then filming. She is in every scene, filming 12 + hours a day with weekends off, which more than likely a good part of that is spent learning lines and sleeping/resting I would imagine, with occasional munro bagging with some guy she met on OL, “magical evening walks” with some guy she met on OL (according to him), visits from across the globe friends – Donal, etc. This is more than likely her schedule for SEVERAL months. I believe I read somewhere that they were filming for 9 or 10 months originally, even if it were 6 months, then some time off, then promoting, then back to filming for 3 more months – that’s pretty much more than one year of her life devoted to OL. During her time off she was in California (not the UK), going to Big Sur, hiking the LA Canyons with her sister and some guy she met while filming OL, hanging with her cat and friends, etc., just being HOME. Then her and her costar are doing some heavy promoting during the summer, then back to filming in August (I believe?).
Okay, stay with me – Now we’re into the fall/end of year of 2014. They wrap in October. She’s in LA (@home) for Thanksgiving with her good friends – Simon, Karolina and others (have you seen the Thanksgiving photos on IG – she’s either exhausted, a bit drunk or not entirely happy or all three). In December according to accounts she does a whirlwind trip to NY, Paris, Ireland (I do believe that’s all very doable btw). Then in January 2015 her and her costar from OL are at People’s Choice Awards – in LA . Also at this time she knows her 'flat’ is on the market so she realizes she’s going to have to move, so does she stay in LA even though she’s rarely there anymore or uproot and move to Glasgow where she WORKS many months out of the year for OL? Well, yeah.
Now we’re moving into spring of 2015, she’s filming Money Monster for 3+ months I believe, has been doing photoshoots all over the place, quoted in some rag tag as having a cilivian bf. This is where I go WTF? How in God’s name does she have a BF, let alone a 'civilian’ BF with the crazy ass schedule she has had now for the last 2 years, where in the hell would she have found TIME to find and nurture a relationship with someone who has nothing to do with the industry? Unless of course she has a twin, oohh that could explain SOO much… I’m going with that, yep, yep, I like that theory.
