“Outlander” is many things: A sweeping historical epic, a magical tale of time travel, a fictional retelling of Jacobite history. But at it’s core, “Outlander” is the love story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser.

That’s why Zap2it pressed stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan for all the juicy details about the developing love story between Claire and Jamie during “Outlander’s” premiere at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Heughan tells Zap2it the first kiss between the two characters “pretty hot,” though he and Balfe first had to shoot a much steamier scene before they could act out those first intimate moments.
“We’re filming out of sequence, so we first went into an episode later on when their relationship is in full steam,” Heughan says. Balfe adds, “We filmed quite a steamy session.” “It was fun — for me,” Heughan quips, causing Balfe to make an expression of humorous surprise.
Hear Balfe and Heughan’s full thoughts on Claire and Jamie’s love story arc by watching the above video, and tune into Zap2it leading up to “Outlander’s” Aug. 9 premiere date for more interviews and scoops from the cast and creators.
