It’s no secret that Outlander fans want Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe to get together in real life.
So far, the actors have denied rumors of a potential off-screen romance. However, are they now ready to take their relationship public?
With Hiddleston and Swift taking the world by storm, rumors indicate that Heughan might be replacing the Thor star in Armani’s new campaign.
It is believed that Armani hired Hiddleston as their new model following Calvin Harris’ exit. However, it now looks like Heughan might steal it before it’s all said and done.
After all, Heughan is a lot more masculine than Hiddleston and might have the better personality to pull of Armani’s campaign. Either way, an official announcement has not been made.
This isn’t the first time Heughan and Balfe have faced dating rumors.
According to Game N Guide, an eyewitness once spotted the pair getting a little close and comfy with each other on the set of Outlander.
“Sam and Caitriona were taking a short break between scenes when I saw them off to the side, holding hands and Sam was even whispering in her ear… She was laughing at whatever he said and well, they looked like an ordinary couple.”
So far, Heughan and Balfe have not confirmed the status of their relationship, leaving fans to guess if they are dating or just really good friends.
That being said, Hall of Fame Magazine is reporting that the timing is perfect for the Outlander stars to finally get together, especially considering how they are both currently single.
Balfe just got out of a relationship with Dave Milone, a musician for Radio4. For his part, Sam Heughan’s previous relationships are a bit more mysterious, though he isn’t dating anyone at the moment.
Apart from their single status, Heughan and Balfe have great chemistry together on Outlander. In fact, their intense romance in front of the cameras is one reason why Outlander has been so successful in its first two years running.
Unfortunately, the on-screen couple has never confirmed a romance outside of work. They have, however, flirted with each other in interviews and clearly have a great friendship.
Does this mean that a romance will happen down the road? Or will their work on Outlander prevent a romance from growing?
According to Game N Guide, Balfe did speak about the possibility of a romance with Heughan. Sadly, she didn’t sound open to the idea of dating a co-worker.
“I think it would be difficult for us to work together and be together,” Balfe explained in an interview.
Of course, neither Balfe nor Heughan have addressed the most recent rumors about their relationship. Hopefully, fans will learn the truth in the coming weeks as Outlander prepares for another season.
While the dating rumors pick up speed, Heughan was recently spotted working out in New York City. The Outlander hunk was seen walking out of a gym without anyone at his side.
Outlander is currently in-between seasons, and Heughan was likely staying in top shape for his part as Jamie Fraser in the hit series.
Production for Season 3 is should begin in the near future.
The new season of Outlander is expected to premiere sometime next year on Starz, though an official premiere date has not been announced.
