Outlander star Sam Heughan talks coming Down Under and his heartthrob status

‘I need to move to Australia!’ Outlander star Sam Heughan talks coming Down Under and how he REALLY feels about his heartthrob status

Outlander star Sam Heughan has always spoken about the love he has for his homeland, Scotland.  

But, it appears that the hunky actor could be making a move Down Under. 

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph’s Stellar Magazine, the 40-year-old joked that he ‘needs to move to Australia’.

After being informed that the most commonly googled question about Sam is whether he is single or not, the heartthrob made the surprising revelation about relocating to Oz. 

‘Well, what I know is that Google localises questions based on what area you’re in, so it sounds like I need to move to Australia,’ he joked.   

Sam shot to heartthrob status over his portrayal of fictional the Scottish Highlander, Jamie Fraser, in the hugely popular TV series Outlander.

And, when it comes to this status, Sam thinks there is a certain ‘romanticism’ about the Scottish people. 

‘Do I think it comes down to men in kilts? Well, I think there’s a romanticism and a certain mystique around the Highlanders and the Scots,’ he said.    

The magical period show has been on the air since 2014, and the sixth season is set to begin filming soon.

In March Sam confirmed on Twitter that the cast had begun filming episode one, although the COVID-19 pandemic halted production shortly after the actor tweeted. 

However, during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Friday, Sam confirmed that preparations are underway to resume filming.   

‘We are definitely gearing up, I’ve been in a few times for costume fittings,’ he said. 

‘We’re going to have to adapt, we’re going to have to look at a new way of working around [COVID-19]. But we’re getting there – I’m excited to go back to work!’
