Outlander star Caitríona Balfe will star in upcoming boxing drama The Cut opposite Orlando Bloom.

The actress is currently filming in Nevada, and a recent first-look picture from set has given fans a glimpse of her character.

Balfe has traded her brunette locks for a shorter, blonde do and has been snapped wearing cargo pants and a grey top and zip cardigan.

The film, from director Sean Ellis, follows a boxer (Bloom, who also co-produces) coming out of retirement to vie for his championship title through a gruelling and unsanctioned weight cut program.

The protagonist trains with a coach who knows no limits, progressively alienating himself from reality and loved ones, as he spirals out of control.

Ellis is directing an adapted screenplay by Justin Bull (known for movie Little Rituals) from a story by Mark Lane.

As for Balfe, the Belfast star will reprise the role of Claire Fraser in the second half of the seventh season due to arrive in 2024. The first half premiered on June 16, with the beloved period drama announced to be ending with an eighth and final chapter down the line.

The star recently sat with Digital Spy to discuss wrapping up things for the Frasers in what is set out to be an emotional series finale.

“It’s going to be so weird. It’s been such an amazing ride that it’s nice to wrap it up while we all still love each other and we are all still feeling like we’re making a good show,” Balfe said.

“But at the same time, it’s going to be really hard to say goodbye to these characters. It’s going to be really hard to say goodbye to each other and not have that kind of constant contact. It feels like it’s the right time, but at the same time, it’s going to be hard I think.”

The Cut doesn’t have a release date yet.
