Lauren Lyle, who plays Marsali, was quick to join in on the fun, tweeting: “Sam, im sure we can find Susan a part?” 

Susan isn’t the only major star to have a soft spot for the time-travelling period drama, as Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan has also expressed her love for the show. Back in June, she posted: "Ok I’m late to the party but I started Outlander and I am officially obsessed." 

Outlander's official account replied: "Welcome to the club, thrilled to have you! I'd warn that symptoms of Outlander addiction may include starting to say anything and everything in a Scottish accent but you've already got that covered." 

We need season six too Susan!

However, it was Sam's comment to the actress that really got people talking! He replied writing: "Still time to find you a wee part Karen," to which she joked: "Can I be an extra loitering around Inverness asking people 'what’s the Craic, eh?'"

Season six will see the fallout of the events of the season five finale, in which Claire was kidnapped by a group of men and assaulted, with Marsali later killing the ringleader out of vengeance. Speaking about the new series, Caitriona said: “We’re at the beginning of a journey with Claire, and I think it will take a long time for her to put the pieces back together."
