Sam and Caitriona are back filming together and they couldn't be happier 

"Actually, having scenes away from her, and time apart from her, is kind of like losing someone in your family. A loved one. It's very strange, and I don't enjoy it. Whenever we're together it feels right, and I look forward to the days when we get to work together again."

While Caitriona is married, Sam has yet to find the love of his life. 

He told the Inquirer: "I would like to emulate some of Jamie's qualities. He's very loyal and quite stubborn."

Sam added: "The love that Jamie has for Claire -  it would be amazing to find something like that myself."
