Sam Heughan is talking about his love life on “Outlander”.
During an interview with Parade magazine, the 39-year-old actor was asked about the on-screen relationship between his character Jamie Fraser and Caitriona Balfe’s character Claire Fraser.
“Jamie and Claire are two of the most romantic characters in literature with a love that spans time. Do you believe that there is that kind of love?” Parade asks the Scottish actor.
“I think there is, and I think we all aspire to it,” Heughan replies. “I think that’s maybe why Diana Gabaldon’s books have done so well and why we have a great family of people that buy into that. I think it’s something that we all aspire to and aim for so, yeah, I would like to think it’s real and I’d like to think that one day I could have that myself.”
During the interview, Heughan also discusses season 5.
“The challenge is that we have this whole new settlement. Fraser’s Ridge has really flourished,” says Heughan.
“There’s a lot of towns nearby and you can feel the buildup of it. There are the clouds in the distance gathering for the great war. Jamie and Claire are really fighting to make sure that they’re on the right side. I think the sheer size of what we’re dealing with now and the sheer numbers of cast and of locations, as well, is a challenge.”
The fifth season of “Outlander” will air later this year on W Network; a sixth season has already been greenlit.
