“We’re not together,” Caitriona told E! News. “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. They like to try to maybe replicate the Claire and Jamie story. But I think it would be difficult for us to work together and be together.”
“Yeah, we could try…” Sam quipped while Caitriona was talking. Swoon! With the kind of chemistry these two share on Outlander, it’s not surprising to see people wondering if there’s something more between them. Actors that play lovers onscreen have had a tendency to find it offscreen as well. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, just to name a few.
“I think people buy into the show and us saying it’s not real, they feel like they’ve been duped. It’s like, ‘You acted it. You lied to us!’ And I’m like, ‘Well, sorry!'” Sam continued in the interview.
Outlander returns for season two in April 2016. The show is nominated for three Golden Globes: Best Television Series — Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Sam and Caitriona said they were sharing co-star Tobias Menzies as a date!
