'Outlander' Star Sam Heughan Has New Lass; Everything To Know About Amy Shiels
Outlander actor Sam Heughan is at the middle of dating rumor once again. He was previously linked to his co-star Catriona Balfe. Both have stressed that the steamy chemistry between them is only for the reel and not in real life. Additionally, Heughan has a romantic relationship with actress MacKenzie Mauzy since 2016 while Balfe is now engaged to boyfriend, Tony McGill.
But Heughan is reportedly now dating Twin Peaks star, Amy Shiels. The Outlander actor and Mauzy have yet to confirm if they have already split, but speculations are rife that the two already parted way. The last time they were seen together was in Oscars in March.
Us Weekly cited multiple sources as saying that the 38-year-hunk actor is indeed hanging out with Shiels. The two are friends for more than 10 years now.
There were speculations that the two have dated in 2014. Shiels sparked dating rumors after she liked a post on Twitter that dubbed her and Heughan as "beautiful couple" and could be the next Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Both Sam Heughan and Shiels never confirm the relationship which reportedly ended in 2016.
Additionally, Shiels tweeted earlier this month about Hueghan being the "obvious choice" to be the next James Bond. She also supported Heughan during the L.A. premiere of the actor's new movie, The Spy Who Dumped Me, although they were not photographed together. Two days later, the duo was spotted hanging out at a restaurant in West Hollywood.
