Outlander Cast's Real-life Partners
Outlander is one of those shows we secretly watch, then rewatch the naughtiest scenes and blush. It's like Sam Heughan - you can't resist falling in love with it.
Girls, start sighing as we are going to tell you who the actors of the hottest show are dating. We will also answer the questions you are most worried about... Are Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe dating? And which heartbreaker is free? Learn it all right here!
Tobias Menzies as Frank Randall/Jonathan Randall
Tobias Menzies who portrays a loyal husband in the future and the worst enemy in the past is incredibly secretive about his private life. And no matter how much we want to find out whether his heart is free, it's likely impossible He was said to have been in a brief relationship with Kristen Scott Thomas in 2005/2006. And that's it.
Well, we can just hope that he's doing well.
Tobias doesn't let us miss him because now he's helping us dive into the 20th century England. Have you seen him in Netflix season 3 of The Crown? He replaced Matt Smith as Prince Philip and now stars opposite Olivia Colman, who takes over the titular role of the Queen from Claire Foy.
Graham McTavish as Dougal MacKenzie
Portrayed by Graham McTavish, Dougal McKenzie is the image of the tough, rugged highlander. And he was one of the reasons to fall in love with Outlander once and forever.
He is the actor from New Zealand who has an English accent and tons of fans across the US. Yet, Outlander star Graham McTavish reveals he couldn't feel more Scottish. Have you got shivers down your spine too?
And he notices parallels between the stories of his character and those of today's Scotland. He lives with his wife Gwen and family in Central Ortega in New Zealand, where he says there are more McTavishes than in Scotland. However, the date of their marriage hasn't yet been officially revealed by the couple, for the sake of protecting the privacy of their personal lives.
The couple has two wonderful daughters who are surrounded by their parents' unconditional love. That's what Graham said about his oldest daughter, Honor:
"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."
Can this man be more attractive? Turns out, yes! Now when we know that he's a loving father, we love him even more!
Lotte Verbeek as Geillis Duncan
Lotte Verbeek is a bit more focused on her career rather than on her personal life. Lotte is someone who has been doing incredibly well with her professional life. However, while she's been enjoying the limelight in her career, she still hasn't revealed much about her private life and especially her love life. She posted some pictures on Valentine's day, but the posts do not say much about who she is dating.
David Berry as Lord John Grey
Even though on the show Lord John Grey prefers male company, it is the other way around in real life. David Berry has been married to Kristina Tesic since 2012 and the couple has a son, Alexander. The Outlander star has actually given his little lad a nickname inspired by his character, Lord John Grey.
“I remember when [my son] Alexander was born. I started calling him Little Lord Berry. He wears that name a little bit now,” Berry told Entertainment Weekly.
The baby was born in 2016, the very same day that Berry returned home to Australia after filming his scenes for Outlander season 3 in Scotland. Kristina was already in labor at the hospital when his plane landed. The timing was a bit nerve-racking, but everything worked out just fine.
"I didn't really want to leave my wife alone for that period of time, regardless of the opportunity. But then, at the 11th hour, the (schedule) dates changed," David explained.
Laura Donnelly as Jenny Murray
In an interview in June 2007, Laura Donnelly revealed that she can't spend her life with a person who doesn't have an artistic background or fails to understand and respect her work. During that time, she was dating a guitarist, Nathan Connolly of the Northern Ireland band, Snow Patrol, which explains the thoughts she had.
Yet, the status of Laura's love life changed. In an interview in May 2015, Laura revealed that her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Nathan was over and that she had found a new love.
"I do have someone else on the scene. He's 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."
However, Laura hasn't revealed her boyfriend's name and it's still a mystery. The rumors were that Laura was dating actor Lee Pace from 2015 to 2016. This raises the question if Lee was the mystery man she talked about? Well, only she knows.
Steven Cree as Ian Murray
It might be a bit upsetting to the ladies, but this Outlander star is married and fully committed to his relationship. Steven Cree is married to successful casting director Kahleen Crawford and always jumps in to pre-empt the obvious question.
“I have to say she has never hired me. There is no nepotism whatsoever." Why? Doesn’t she rate her husband? "Maybe not initially,” he laughs.

When asked about his wedding, he revealed that the ceremony was just 2 days after filming and he looked like a Second World War groom. Nevertheless, Kahleen never complained as she tied the knot with one of the hottest Scottish actors.
There is almost no information about when the couple met, but they must have been dating for years before taking their commitment to the next level.
Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall
We aren't sure who Sophie Skelton is dating, but the rumor is she might be in a romance with her show husband, Richard Rankin. Even though the actors have never officially confirmed their relationship, everybody is looking for a hint to reveal the romance.
Back in February 2016, the co-stars Richard Rankin and Sophie visited the Wardlaw Mausoleum to find out more about the Fraser Family after they were signed on to Outlander. Yet, it is not that visit that is causing some ripples in the industry.
In November 2016, the duo was seen together again, in Glasgow. Daily Mail reported that Sophie and her alleged boyfriend were spotted having a conversation and laughing together. The chemistry that they shared in Glasgow seemed to be more than just a working relationship. We do not believe in those rumors and think that fans are just making up what they want to see.
Stanley Weber as Le Comte St. Germain
Ladies, another handsome single man! At least we haven't heard any news about him being in a relationship right now. When the rumor of him dating his co-star Karen Gillan appeared, the media thought they had a real headline about Stanley's love life in 2013. But the hearsay was quickly discarded in the trash. Why?
It's because of that the actor said in an interview: “I’d like to put it on record that I am single at the moment.” He is probably not looking to get married right now and is focusing his energy on his career. Yet, if he decides to make a commitment and have a partner or wife, he would find it hard to select one out of the crowd of his admirers.
Nell Hudson as Laoghaire MacKenzie
The sparkling Nell Hudson used to date Will Taylor, who happens to be the lead singer of the famous band Flyte. Nell and Will met for the first time when he and his band were playing at The Jericho Tavern in Oxford back in 2011. Nell was the one to approach Will first. Even though she knew that Will was broke and miles away from stardom, she immediately connected with him.
Besides being open about their relationship on social media, Nell also openly talked about her private life in various interviews. In one of them, Nell revealed that her boyfriend wrote a lot of songs about her and she loves listening to him and his music.
But now they seem to have broken up because Nell posts photos with another man on her Instagram. The actress hasn't disclosed his name, but they do look cute together on their photos!
Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall/Fraser and Sam Heughan as Jamie MacKenzie Fraser
Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have what is probably the hottest chemistry on TV. Obviously the viewers are wondering whether the charming and oh-so-friendly stars are dating in real life. So are they?
"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," Caitriona told E! News.
"Yeah, we could try..." Sam interjected. "No, I think it's strange, isn't it?" he continued, musing about the fans' desire to see them dating in real life. "Because 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!'" Well, who are the show's main actors dating then?
Scottish-born Sam is said to be dating actress Amy Shiels, the star of Twin Peaks. She was noticed supporting her rumored beau at the premiere of his film, The Spy Who Dumped Me, in July 2018. The pair who have been friends for a decade made sure not to be photographed together. According to US Weekly, they were spotted a few days later at celeb spot Chateau Marmont. They were reported to have dated back in 2014 and 2016 but it wasn't confirmed back then.
Sam's Irish co-star, meanwhile, is very serious with her long-time love, Tony McGill. Their relationship was a highly guarded secret for a long time before Caitriona shocked everyone by announcing on the Golden Globes red carpet in January 2018 that she had accepted his proposal and showed off her diamond engagement ring!
“I’m very happy,” she told People magazine. And now, she has to be even happier because the couple tied the knot in August this year. Congratulations!
