Sam and Caitriona have played opposite one another as lovers Claire and Jamie Fraser for five seasons with fans of the Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon falling in love with the couple. Behind-the-scenes, the pair are good friends but Sam has admitted he sometimes “winds up” his co-star.

When asked about what gets Caitriona annoyed with him, Sam revealed: “She is amazing as you know.

“She is such a wonderful woman and intelligent and creative and I am very, very lucky to call her a good friend as well and actually more than anything, she is a good friend.”

However he added: “She forces me sometimes to socialse when I really don’t want to.

“She’s a social animal. It’s wonderful to be part of and always welcomed into her world as well.

“We know how to wind each other up. We have a shorthand when working and we know just how each other is going to play things. I am sure I wind her up all the time.

“Probably I am quite relaxed sometimes and I let things go.

“She is very strong and likes to get things done. That probably winds her up.

“I shouldn’t say it, but I know when she is p**sed off. She has a little foot tap that she does.


“So if you see her tap her foot, I am like here we go. I can see it. It’s great.”

Sam went on to reveal to GMA News Online that he often leaves fans “disappointed” when he meets them as he doesn’t look exactly like his character.

He explained: “Actually it’s funny, people because of my accent as well, I don’t have a strong accent.

“People are slightly disappointed. I am not a ginger and yeah, I mean, it’s funny.

“I still get recognised. People still do recognise you but yeah, I guess it’s just playing other characters as well. You get to change your image and that’s fun.

“But I probably will always have Jamie Fraser with me at some point, even when the show is over.”

Sam should currently be preparing to film the next season of the Starz drama however production has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans of the series are now expecting a long Droughtlander ahead of them as they wait to find out what the future holds for their beloved Claire and Jamie.
