Sam Heughan celebrates Outlander season premiere 7 with on-screen family

Sam Heughan has shared a snap of himself alongside his TV wife as the small-screen favourites celebrated the premiere of Outlander's seventh season in New York.

The 43-year-old actor, who plays Jamie Fraser in the time-travelling series, beamed as he stood beside Caitriona Balfe - who stars as his soulmate Claire in the show.

The pair were joined by Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin - who play Jamie and Claire's daughter Brianna and her husband Roger MacKenzie in the fantasy drama - for the first showing of the new season.

The co-stars looked dapper for In Conversation With Josh Horowitz at The 92nd Street Y in the Big Apple.

Sharing snaps on Instagram, Sam wrote: "Wonderful evening with the Fraser Family @92ndstreety celebrating @outlander_starz premiere! Big thank you to @joshuahorowitz for not messing it up…"

Fans were left delighted with the panel at the event, with many rushing to the comments to share their thoughts on the night.

@biblioberg wrote: "A perfect panel!" And @bararamills22 added: "I enjoyed everything immensely! Thank you!" @barszman said: "Really enjoyed the interview last evening. Thanks to you all for doing all the press to get us ready for Season 7. Couldn’t be more excited!!"

With @ambi_geb writing: "It was such fun seeing the clan back together again! The humor, warmth and love shared with the cast comes through loud and clear. Also, Josh did great as moderator/therapist! Looking forward to following the Fraser Family’s journey on #Outlander S7!!"

It comes as fans look forward to the new season of the show, which will be on screens next Friday, June 16. The return ends a long Droughtlander and comes as Caitriona revealed she and Sam spend a lot less time together off-camera.

The duo became best pals after landing the two leads in the hit show and they would frequently spend time together even when they weren't filming the hit show.

However, the pair haven't had the opportunity to hang out as much as they'd like recently due to other commitments. Speaking at the 2023 Austin Television Festival, Caitriona confessed that their lives have become "much more complicated and busy".

She said: "We like to be very prepared and focused but then we like to have a lot of fun. We like to not take ourselves too seriously even though we take the work seriously.

"But as our lives have gotten more complicated and busy, we may not see each other as much as we used to, but that core and that friendship and that base that we have has never changed."

The Irish actress frequently gushes over Sam, and previously told Elle: "Sam's just so kind. He's a really good friend. He always checks in. I don't know, he has one of the biggest hearts and smallest egos that I know. I feel very lucky. Sam and I have an amazing bond, we're really great friends."
