Outlander: Caitriona and Sam – just how close are they?

It’s one of the chief joys of Outlander fandom, the dynamic between the two lead actors on the Starz series. Caitriona Balfe who plays Claire Randall and Sam Heughan who plays Jamie Fraser seem as compatible off screen as they do on.

Many Outlander fans are convinced that the pair are romantically involved, so much so in fact that Caitriona has felt the need to dispel the rumours. Speaking recently the actress said “We’re not together. It’s funny. We’ve always said from the get go that we’re incredibly great friends. And to have that friendship and that closeness and to be able to get along as we do on set, it’s great that we’re able to get along that well. We’re not together. I’m sorry to break people’s hearts.”

While that might upset more than a few she did go on to say that the pair enjoy a very close friendship. Of course many fans will remain convinced that the pair are a couple!

Outlander Season 2 will premiere on Starz, April 2016.
