Caitriona Balfe is an Irish actress and fashion model best known for her starring role as Claire Randall, a mid-20th-century nurse who is transported back in time to the war torn mid-18th-century Scottish Highlands, in the fantasy period drama television series Outlander.

Balfe was born in Monaghan, Ireland. She started modeling at the age of 19 after she was scouted by an agent while she was collecting money for charity at a local mall.

She has both walked the runway and been featured in advertising campaigns for many top fashion brands, including Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, DKNY, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, H&M, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Cacharel, Roberto Cavalli, Givenchy, Hugo Boss, Armani, Dries van Noten, Calvin Klein and Chanel.

She averaged 26 fashion shows per season in the early 2000s. She has also graced the covers of magazines such as Vogue and Elle. At the time she was scouted, Balfe was studying drama at the Dublin Institute of Technology, hoping to become an actress.
