Scottish native Sam Roland Heughan is well-liked at home thanks to his portrayal of Scott Nielson on the hit BBC series “Doctors.”
He was cast in productions of “Outlying Islands” and “Hamlet” because of his obvious acting ability.
His career took off after he was cast opposite Caitriona Balfe in “Outlander.”
He graduated from the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where he received a Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Performance nomination.
His filmography is remarkable and includes works like “The Spy Who Dumped Me” and “Bloodshot.”
Sam was rewarded with an honorary doctorate in recognition for his outstanding acting skills and other endeavors from the University of Stirling in June 2019.
The University of Glasgow also bestowed an honorary doctorate upon the actor in July 2019 owing to his artistic prowess.
He now has an ever-expanding fanbase that passionately follows his work and personal life, mostly tucked away from the spotlight.
If you’re a fan wondering about his love life, here’s everything we know about his dating history!
Is Sam Heughan Dating Anyone?
Many people have become invested in the ‘Outlander’ franchise over time, and roughly half of them are Sam Heughan fans who also support Caitriona Balfe.
Fans of the pair can’t get enough of their amazing on-screen chemistry and passionate romance.
They have been spotted together at various ‘Outlander’ events and are actively present in each other’s social media lives.
But the actors have been very clear about their easy rapport that unfortunately stops at friendship.
Cody Kennedy has been said to have dated Sam Heughan in 2014 and 2015.
They attended a Halloween party together in 2014, which apparently sparked up relationship rumors between the couple.
Due to their relative lack of fame at the time, speculation about their relationship eventually faded.
Reportedly, Sam was also dating Abbie Salt from late January 2015 to November 2015. Several eyewitnesses corroborated the claim that they frequently frequented the same venues in London and Glasgow.
Sam first became acquainted with her through their co-star sister Charlotte in “A Princess for Christmas.”
North Carolina native Mackenzie Mauzy is the next rumored Sam fling. They dated, presumably, from November 2016 to March 2018.
They first appeared in public in February of 2017 at the Oscar Weekend Kick-Off Party hosted by the Weinstein Company and Piaget in Los Angeles.
Sam’s birthday that year was also celebrated by the two of them. But the pictures stopped coming in during the spring of 2018, which implies they must have separated.
In 2018, it was reported that Sam was officially dating ‘Twin Peaks star Amy Shiels after sharing a 10-year “flirty friendship” that blossomed into a relationship. Rumors about the pair fired up in 2014 when ‘Outlander’ first premiered, but the actors did not confirm anything.
Fans were soon jolted into a state of frenzy in October 2014 when Amy liked a message on a Twitter status implying that she and Sam are a beautiful couple (who could be the next Brangelina – a reference to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie).
Similarly, Amy tweeted that Sam should play James Bond because it’s so obvious.
Amy was spotted at the premiere of Sam’s movie “The Spy Who Dumped Me” on July 25th, 2018.
They were spotted at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont two days after the glitzy event.
The actor has said that his career is more important than his personal life, and he has never discussed his romantic life in public.
In 2020, Sam implied that he was single and constantly busy with work.
