“If you think about what she did, being part of every scene plus her voice-over, you can’t help but be impressed with Cait,” says Moore of the Irish actress, who plays Claire Beauchamp in the Scotland-set period series. “It’s a unique performance, and it’s a tremendous responsibility … she’s earned her place in those ranks.”
Though he hasn’t yet had a chance to speak to Menzies – he shared his congratulations to Balfe via email – Moore is equally thrilled that Menzies has earned a nomination for his performance in the dual roles of Frank Randall and Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall. As fans know, the two characters couldn’t be more different – one a mild-mannered history professor, the other a bloodthirsty military officer – and it’s Menzies’ handling of the latter’s sensitive material that Moore says was worthy of consideration by the HFPA.
