‘Outlander’ heroine Claire is the coolest woman on TV right now

Claire time travels, heals people and has hot sex - what's not to love about her?

The beautiful, sexy Englishwoman, Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) could have been an interesting character had she just been a skilled combat nurse during WWII who became a surgeon in the 1960s.

But no, that isn’t enough for Outlander, thanks to author Diana Gabaldon...

When you multiply that Claire is a well-educated, bilingual orphan raised by a globe-trotting archaeologist, who falls in passionate love with one man while in a loving marriage to another, who knows potentially life-saving and sometimes life-ending medicinal qualities of plants, who makes trusted friends and mortal enemies with equal aplomb, not to mention being an accidental time-traveler bent on changing history; you have someone, the likes of whom we have never seen before on television.

She is an incredibly layered and complex person who is always interesting to watch.
