"Outlander" has been delighting viewers with the romantic, time-traveling tale of Jamie and Claire for many years, leaving fans interested in the real-life partners of the actors and actresses.


"Outlander" has grown to become a fan-favorite, and while you might be enamored with the story on the screen, the actors who portrayed these roles have their own love lives.

Some fans even dream that Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are dating in real life, so let's dive in and see who's dating who.

Tobias Menzies - Frank Randall/Johnathan Randall

The actor who portrays Claire's adoring husband Frank in the '50s and the evil villain, Johnathan, in the past is not forthcoming about his personal life.


It's almost impossible to find anything about Tobias Menzies' love life online. He was linked with Kristin Scott Thomas in 2005-2006, but that is all you would be able to find out about him.

If you have been missing the actor after he stopped appearing in "Outlander," get ready to see him in Netflix's third season of "The Crown," where he will play an older version of Prince Philip, replacing Matt Smith.

Thanks everyone for the brill questions, apparently we even trended, yikes! Enjoy the second half of the season. pic.twitter.com/dkRD3Vgm0u

Graham McTavish - Dougal McKenzie

Graham McTavish is undoubtedly perfect for the rough-looking Highlander, with most people believing that he is Scottish, but in reality, he is from New Zealand.

However, McTavish revealed that he fell in love with Scottish culture. He lives in Central Ortega, New Zealand, with his wife Gwen and their two daughters.

McTavish often posts a bunch of cool pictures on his Instagram account, and there is nothing more attractive than a man that loves his family.

Lotte Verbeek - Geillis Duncan

Lotte Verbeek is another professional that likes to keep her private life out of the spotlight, and she is focusing on her career instead of finding love.

She has posted several romantic things on her Instagram, but there is no partner in sight, so it is hard to say whether she is with someone right now or not. Sometimes, it's better to do things that way.

David Berry - Lord John Grey


David Berry portrays a gay man on the show, but in real life, he has been married to Kristina Tesic since 2012, and they have a son named Alexander, who was born in 2016.

Alexander was born the day after he finished filming his scenes for season three. David started calling his kid "Little Lord Berry," and they are still calling him that nowadays.

Stanley Weber - Comte de St. Germain

Female readers should rejoice because this actor is currently single, or at least, there is no indication that he might be in a relationship. There were rumors about him and Karen Gillam possibly dating in 2013 but eventually broke up.

They met in 2011 when his band was playing at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford, and Hudson decided to make the first move despite knowing that Taylor was broke at the time because his band had not acquired fame yet. They are very open about their relationship on social media.
