HE’S SAYS HE’S NOT CURRENTLY DATING ANYONE.
In an interview ahead of season five, Heughan opened up about the demands of his job, and the toll his acting career has taken on his personal life.
“Certainly, relationships are hard when you’re working in Scotland 10 months a year. I travel a lot and any downtime I have, I’m trying to do other projects, so very much, my career comes first. Maybe I will find someone eventually,” he said.
“My whole career, not just ‘Outlander’ but as an actor, I have always put that first. It’s hard when you travel a lot. My priority has been my career, so that’s where I am at the moment. But I am sure at some point, I will get knocked off my feet, then I’m screwed (laughs).”
BUT WHAT ABOUT HIS CO-STAR CAITRIONA BALFE?
Heughan’s chemistry with his on-screen wife Caitriona Balfe is certainly convincing, but in real life, they’re just good actors and very close friends.
“She is such a wonderful woman—intelligent and creative,” Heughan recently said of his Outlander co-star. “More than anything, she’s a good friend.”
Balfe reportedly married her longtime partner music producer Antony “Tony” McGill in August of 2019. Heughan seems to have been in attendance at the intimate ceremony in Bruton, England. But before she tied the knot, Balfe spoke with Parade Magazine about the fans who want Balfe and Heughan to get together off screen.
