Outlander star Annette Badland, 71, played fan favourite character Mrs. Fitz in the first season of the popular Scottish series, but she has been noticeably absent from the show ever since. The actress has now told Express.co.uk that she “would like to be remembered” and suggested that she could perhaps return in a dream sequence. 

Now in its sixth season, Outlander is a historical drama show that takes place around the time of the Jacobite rising.

In the series, Annette’s character Mrs. Fitz is the head housekeeper of Castle Leoch and faces an uncertain future after the dissolution of the clans and destruction of the castle at the end of season 1.

When asked if she would ever return to the show, Annette revealed that she would like to be asked back, if only to make a brief cameo appearance, while hinting at her sadness over the situation. 

She said: “I’m deeply upset that no one’s ever had a dream about me or something, you know? 

“The show doesn’t speak entirely to the novels, and I think Mrs Fitz doesn’t really come back in the novels.

“But it would be nice if someone could at least remember her!” she added with a laugh. 

When asked what it was like working on the set of Outlander, Annette revealed: “It was great!”

“Sam (Heughan), myself and Tobias (Menzies) were the first three to be cast and I went up to Scotland for a costume fitting. 

“And Sam walked into the room and you kind of go, ‘Ooh’, but what was really breathtaking is that he’s such a wonderful man. 

“So polite and doesn’t have any arrogance about him.”

Annette went on to describe the close bond she formed with lead actress Caitriona Balfe during her time on set. 

“Cat is absolutely splendid and a wonderful human being and she’s just marvellous to work with,” she explained.

She then told a story about a time where they bonded over Cat stripping naked for a time-consuming costume fitting.

“We really kind of clicked and there was once a dressing scene we did and – because Terry Dresbach the designer is terribly authentic – the costumes had bum rolls, two under skirts, a bodice, something that had to be laced, no velcro to be seen…

“Cat had to be naked so it was a closed set – and Terry warned them that it would take time!” she continued with a laugh.

“But 20 mins later if you’re lacing up a corset and you’re putting an underskirt on… I ended up singing to her, I did all sorts of things just to fill the time! 

“They all wondered what the hell was going on back on the set. It just takes so long, getting the stockings on, getting the shoes on, the gloves, everything! 

“So that was quite amusing because we knew absolutely that it would take forever and Terry said, ‘I told them, they’re just not listening!’ So yes, that was all very funny.”

The latest episode of Outlander Season 6 is available today on StarzPlay. 

This month Annette is taking part in a fundraiser for Diabetes UK, which will see her swim 22 miles (the equivalent distance of the English Channel) over the course of the next month.
