Outlander is known for being an intense love story between time traveller Claire and highlander Jamie so it’s not surprising that the pair have been shown having passionate sex multiple times on the Starz show. The fifth season of the show saw Claire appear to help bring her husband back from the brink of death with a sexual act after he sustained a snake bite. Fans were stunned by the steamy scene but Sam explained he has a good relationship with co-star Caitriona.

When asked if he was “uncomfortable” with sex scenes early on in the series, Sam explained: “I’d been nude in some theatre productions before but wasn’t really looking forward to these scenes.

“They were challenging, but me and my co-star have a good understanding.

“We try to use every intimate scene to show a little more of their relationship or how they relate to each other.

“Over time this has deepened and their love for each other just gets better and better.”
