'Outlander': The Real Life Partners Revealed
Outlander has been delighting viewers with the romantic, time-traveling tale of Jamie and Claire for many years, and while you might be enamored with the story on the screen, the actors who portrayed these roles have their own love lives. Some fans even dream that Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are dating in real life, so let’s dive in.
1. Tobias Menzies - Frank Randall/Johnathan Randall
The actor who portrays Claire’s adoring husband Frank in the 50s and the evil villain, Johnathan, in the past is not forthcoming about his personal life. It’s almost impossible to find anything about his love life online. He was linked with Kristin Scott Thomas in 2005-2006, but that is all you would be able to find out about him.
If you have been missing the actor after he stopped appearing in Outlander, well get ready to see in Netflix’s third season of The Crown, where he will play an older version of Prince Philip, replacing Matt Smith. He will star alongside Olivia Colman, who will be taking the role of the Queen after a fantastic job from Claire Foy.
2. Graham McTavish - Dougal McKenzie
McTavish is undoubtedly perfect for the rough-looking Highlander, and most people believe that he is Scottish, but he is actually from New Zealand, though he has an English accent. Furthermore, Graham revealed that he fell in love with Scottish culture. He lives in Central Ortega, New Zealand with his wife Gwen and their two daughters.
When talking about his eldest girl, Honor, the actor said, “I have been really lucky as a father to have been there for so many of her milestones, that I really don't want to start missing them now.” Graham posts a bunch of cool pictures on his Instagram account, and there is nothing more attractive than a man that loves his family.
3. Lotte Verbeek - Geillis Duncan
This is another professional that likes to keep her private life out of the spotlight, and she is focusing on her career instead of finding love. She has posted several romantic things on her Instagram, but there is no partner in sight, so it is hard to say whether she is with someone right now or not. Sometimes, it’s better to do things that way.
4. David Berry - Lord John Grey
The actor portrays a gay man on the show, but in real life, he has been married to Kristina Tesic since 2012, and they have a son named Alexander who was born in 2016, the day after he finished filming his scenes for season three. David started calling his kid “Little Lord Berry”, and they are still calling him that nowadays.
5. Laura Donnelly - Jenny Murray
A years ago during an interview, the actress talked about not wanting a relationship with someone who could not understand her career or any of her creative pursuits. She was dating Nathan Connolly, the lead guitarist of Snow Patrol back then, but they broke up, and in 2015, she revealed that there was someone else.
“I do have someone else on the scene. He is sort of half civilian, half industry person; he’s a writer. It’s all going well. It’s great to have someone who understands the life we (actors) lead a bit.” The rumors stated that the mystery man was Lee Pace from Guardians of the Galaxy, whom she dated from 2015 to 2016.
6. Steven Cree – Ian Murray
Unfortunately for all the ladies out there, this actor has been married to Kahleen Crawford, the famous casting director. “I have to say she has never hired me. There is no nepotism whatsoever. Why? Doesn’t she rate her husband? Maybe not initially.” Steven even revealed that their wedding ceremony took place two days after filming, and he looked like a World War II soldier.
7. Sophie Skelton - Brianna Randall
No one is really sure who Sophie is dating at the moment, but rumors state that she might be in a relationship with her on-screen husband, Richard Rankin. They have never said anything that might reveal the truth, but fans are hoping that confirmation will come soon because they have been spotted traveling together on several occasions.
8. Stanley Weber - Comte de St. Germain
Female readers should rejoice because this actor is currently single, or at least, there is no indication that he might be in a relationship. There were rumors about him and Karen Gillam possibly dating in 2013, but Stanley went on an interview to say, “I’d like to put it on record that I’m single at the moment.”
9. Nell Hudson - Laoghaire McKenzie
This adorable-looking actress has been in a relationship with Will Taylor for a while. He is the lead singer of Flight. They met in 2011 when his band was playing at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford, and Nell decided to make the first move despite knowing that Will was broke at the time because his band had no acquired fame yet. They are very open about their relationship on social media.
10. Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe – Jamie and Claire
No one can deny that these two actors have a sizzling hot connection on the screen, so many fans have been wondering whether they are together in real life. In an interview with E!, Caitriona said, “We’re not together. It’s funny. We’ve always said from the get-go that we’re incredibly great friends.” They also stated that it would be hard to play lovers and actually date.
Sam Heughan said, “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!’” So, if they are not together, who are their real-life partners? Heughan is allegedly dating actress Amy Shields from Twin Peaks, who attended the premiere of the actor’s film The Spy Who Dumped Me.
However, they were not photographed together though they have been friends for more than ten years. Meanwhile, Caitriona has been in a relationship with Tony McGill for a while, though they kept it a secret from everyone. In January, the actress revealed their engagement at the Golden Globe Awards red carpet.
What did you think of the personal lives of these actors? Apparently, not many of them are ready to settle down while they work on their careers. If you liked this article, share it with your friends who love learning more about celebrities. See you next time!
