Outlander's Caitriona Balfe Actually Doesn't Picture Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser

Caitriona Balfe‘s version of Jamie Fraser doesn’t look a thing like Sam Heughan.

In the round table chat with Entertainment Weekly, the two Outlander stars, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin opened up about how the books influence them while playing their characters on screen.

When the conversation turned to if the four saw themselves in the character when they were reading the book, Caitriona revealed that her Jamie doesn’t look like Sam at all.

“My Jamie is a stud,” Caitriona admitted during the chat, to which Richard says that his Jamie looks “a lot more like me.”

Sam played into the joke, saying that his version of Jamie is “taller, and has redder hair.”

“I don’t picture us in the book when I’m reading it,” Caitriona added.

Season five of Outlander is airing now on Starz.

Outlander's Sam Heughan Wants You To Expect Lots Of Drama In Season Five! (Video)

Sam Heughan is teasing his Outlander fans!

While making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the 39-year-old actor opened up about being called the show’s “sex symbol.”

“He’s a great character and I think Diana Gabaldon has written this great series of books,” Sam responded to Stephen. “This is season five, we have amazing fans and the story has gone global.”

Sam also talked about what fans can expect from the upcoming fifth season of Outlander, which is set to air on Sundays at 8pm ET on Starz: “I know we say it every season, but this is truthful, I think this is a really strong season,” he said. “We are in America now, we’re building up to the revolutionary war of independence. My character Jamie is actually now having to fight on the side of the British and obviously that goes against everything he’s fought for and stands for. It’s really a dramatic season, I think people are really going to enjoy it.”

That same evening, Sam Heughan joined his co-star Caitriona Balfe at the season five premiere of Outlander.
