will return to Starz in the new year and fans are desperate to find out the fate of their favourite couple Jaime (Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe). Now, ahead of the new season showrunner Ron Moore has spoken out about why they chose these stars to play the leading couple.

Outlander fans enjoyed seeing the love story of World War Two nurse Claire Randall and scotsman Jaime Fraser play out since season one of the time-travelling drama.

Since Claire met her love after being transported back to 1743, they have had a turbulent journey in finding one another.

However, despite their hardships, the on-screen chemistry between the characters is undeniable.

Now, in a special features clip from the Outlander season three DVD, showrunner Ron Moore has opened up about why Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe were perfect for their roles.

In the clip, the show runner revealed that it was the screen test that “sealed the deal” for the Claire Fraser part.

He said: “This was a very important step before casting Caitriona as we had already cast Sam and this was months later so we were looking for a chemistry between the two characters.

“We really felt that Cat was probably going to be the one but this was the final moment where she literally sealed the deal and got the show.

“And you see, they’ve already got the shorthand of their characters and there is definitely onscreen camera chemistry between the two.”

However, it was the off screen chemistry that counted as the show runner continued to watch them when the cameras stopped rolling.

Ron added: “After the scene is over, we kind of kept the camera tape running a little bit.

“We just wanted to see them a little bit more relaxed and interacting.

“You can kind of see they’re awkwardly aware the camera is still running but nonetheless, there is enough spontaneity and sort of genuine affection and good humour between the two of them, that spoke volumes about their potential relationship.”
