I was perusing the site and realized that I had NO Laura Donnelly coverage, which is pretty much a crime, as Laura is the consummate Jenny (in my opinion). Feisty wee lass…
Potential SPOILERS for non book readers ahead, you’ve been warned!
There is that one bone I’ll have to pick with Jenny in Season 3, about encouraging a certain someone to hook his wagon to a certain someone else. You book readers will know what I mean. I guess Jenny wasn’t at Castle Leoch, so she couldn’t really have known the full back story (you know how many details guys tend to leave out, especially when grieving, starving, and living in a cave). But come on, can you-know-who really have changed that much?? The book version of her character is not quite so evil as the show version; it’ll be interesting to see how that gets handled.
This is a Season 1 interview Laura did with Yahoo TV on the sibling relationship between Jenny and Jamie. Watching those two spar feels like they both jumped straight out of the book for me- great sibling chemistry. I love those scenes and look forward to more in Season 3.
I learned today that Laura is actually Irish, like Caitriona. I did not know that. Man, we Irish lasses really know how to hold our own in a stramash… ? ?
Here is the video (including Russian subtitles, for my Russian folks!), enjoy….
