Veteran actors of Outlander, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, have been working together since 2014 and have since become fan-favorites for their incredible prowess in portraying the characters of Jamie and Claire Fraser.
In a recent interview, Heughan candidly revealed that he and Balfe share a very close relationship despite not being together in real life. Heughan stated, “We’re like this couple who, in a way, they’ve grown together.”
