Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe, the lead stars in "Outlander" Season 3, seem to have a very strong reel chemistry that their fans are starting to wonder if they are dating in real life. Playing the role of "Outlander" Season 3 lovers, Jamie and Claire, Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news have been widely circulating thanks to their romantic and intimate roles in the series.
According to Mail Online, Catriona Balfe teased the fans of what to expect in "Outlander" Season 3. According to the 37-year old actress, there will be more steamy and intimate scenes between Claire and Jamie in the upcoming season. Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe are reportedly so comfortable with each other on the set, and acting out all the steamy scenes professionally. Is the too-close-for-comfort friendship between the"Outlander" stars the reason behind Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news?
Although Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news have been circulating since 2016, neither of the "Outlander" Season 3 stars have confirmed the reports. The vagueness of Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news has somehow boosted the show's popularity, leaving the viewers wondering about the real status of the stars' relationship.
There was an instance in 2016 when Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating rumors have been addressed by the "Outlander" Season 3 stars themselves. In an interview with Radio Times, Sam Heughan has reportedly revealed that even if he and Catrional Balfe were dating in real life, they would prefer not to make their relationship public. This interview has obviously spurred Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news even more.
However, it seems like Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe dating news is coming to an end as the former has reportedly revealed his girlfriend. Clue: It's not Catriona Balfe and the fans who have been loyally shipping Jamie and Claire to happen in real life were shocked and disappointed. According to Just Jared, Sam Heughan and girlfriend, MacKenzie Mauzy, first made their public debut at an Oscar weekend kick-off party.
