Caitriona Balfe Reveals Exactly Who Is Keeping Her from Falling in Love with Outlander Costar Sam Heughan (Hint: On-Camera Sex Scenes Are Involved)

Fans of Outlander might be hoping against hope that Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan will get together in real life because their on-screen chemistry is really that good – but sadly, it's just really, really good acting.

During an appearance on Taylor Strecker's SiriusXM radio show, Wake Up with Taylor on Monday, Balfe explained why she isn't likely to fall in love with her costar despite their hot-and-heavy sex scenes – as it turns out, those scenes aren't actually as steamy as they look.

"Well, I mean, for me I think it's quite easy not to develop feelings like that because it's acting, right?" said Balfe, who plays Claire Fraser. "You know, I feel very lucky, Sam and I have an amazing bond, we're really great friends – but, you know, it's acting."
