Sorry fans but Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are strictly just friends. Although there were rumors about the stars being in a relationship, none of them confirmed it as they both laughed it off knowing that they have such good chemistry for people to think that way.

And that chemistry is visible as Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan return for OutlanderSeason 3. The show will air on September 10. Their characters, Claire and Jamie, are going to be separated in different centuries. Claire is in the fifties with Frank and Brianna by her side, while Jamie is in the 18th century, experiencing the aftermath of the war between Scots and Brits.

Caitriona Balfe longs for Sam Heughan in ‘Outlander’

The intense longing between the two characters of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe makes the show appealing as it already is. Without Claire time traveling to the past for Jamie, he is left hallucinating that she is with him to survive. In these touching scenes, Heughan’s dramatic skills will make an impact when the episode airs. And when they reunite, it is going to be more than what we asked for.

In real life, Heughan and Balfe are very private of their affairs. Based on our sources, they were only linked to a few people which are unusual in the entertainment industry.

Balfe dated American musician Dave Milone in the past decade. It seems like the pair shared a very serious relationship.

They lived together in New York for some time.

As far as we know, the actress is currently in a serious relationship with Tony McGill, a non-actor. They were consistently spotted together since 2015 but Balfe did not confirm it yet.

Sam Heughan’s relationship with Mackenzie Mauzy

On the other hand, Heughan is reportedly dating MacKenzie Mauzy for a year now.

Mauzy was Rapunzel in the 2014 film “Into the Woods” and she is actively working on television shows. They attended the 2017 Oscars after-party and there’s no denying that they both look great together.

When the news about the two actors dating came out, some of his fans reacted negatively on social media. Good thing Heughan knows how to be a hero to his girl as he tells fans that the bullying should stop.

The two stars who are very close to each other, share the same attitude when it comes to interviews: Keeping it private. Sharing spoilers is possible but they obviously prefer to keep their personal life private.

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe returns as Jamie and Claire in the newest season of “Outlander” Season 3 on Starz network.
