I hate going back to this lame video, god it’s a shocker….but I wanted to highlight how well KDS handled this interview and in a way took control. She’s a quick thinking, smart gal who can smell a rat from a mile away and I think Sam and Caitriona underestimated her ability to think on her feet and give her viewers something that made them question things. As KDS is speaking, Sam and Cait’s faces look as if it’s dawning on them that she’s not saying exactly what they expected her to. In defence of Sam’s remark that fans think it’s real and feel duped (that it’s not real) she quickly implies that it’s normal with great screen couples that people buy into the fantasy element of it and then adds ‘So let’s just let you believe what you want’. Right after she says this look at her face. First the smirk looking directly at Sam, then the side eye which to me says 'I know what I believe and it sure as heck ain’t what you two just said!’
Cait quickly rebuts the KDS 'believe what you want’ comment with 'which I just stuck a pin in and bursted it’ and Sam quickly finishes what he’s been trying say with 'What? You’ve acted it, you’ve lied to us.’
When Cait answers the initial question it’s like the standard response she gives during interviews or when asked about Sam, it rolls off her tongue….without engaging in any eye contact with KDS mind you…but to me it is all very casually said considering the context. Sam is so awkward, he’s dying, actually I think he shat his pants…a typical male who doesn’t like tension. It’s a walk in the park for Cait, this girl knows how to protect numero uno and handle herself. However, regardless of what was said (or not said) for whatever reason it was very important that they denied being together regardless of how lame it appeared. Since the video there has been a gradual media build up placing renewed focus on their relationship. Perhaps they aren’t together and felt the need to clarify this but geez…why put yourself through that kind of humiliation! Who does that?! Just walk the red carpet with someone other than your costar! For Cait to insult the intelligence of a feminist fanbase thinking we want them to be like Jamie and Claire?? It just makes me cringe…and Sam…the only thing I can think of is that he was trying to put the focus back onto their acting being so good that people think it’s real…perhaps with the idea of promoting Cait/Outlander just prior to GGs and to squash any rumours that might have threatened their chances…anyway the mind boggles but I certainly respect and admire KDS even more after this!
Just realized your'e American and don't know what KD is probably
