Caitriona Balfe & Sam Heughan Show Their Chemistry in Early 'Outlander' Audition

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan were meant to be the stars of Outlander from the very beginning!

As part of the Outlander Season 3 Blu-ray, the duo can be seen in a previously unreleased screen test from their audition prior to the show’s premiere in 2014.

In the clip, Caitriona and Sam go through an intense scene while the show’s creative team watches.

“This was a very important step before we cast Caitriona, because we had already cast Sam. We were looking for chemistry between the two characters. We really felt that Cait was probably going to be the one, but this was the final moment when she literally sealed the deal and got the show,” executive producer Ronald D. Moore explained.
