Sam shared the update on his Instagram

Away from his passion for exercise and charity work, Sam is best-known for portraying Jamie Fraser in STARZPlay series, Outlander, which returns for its sixth season in March.

The 41-year-old recently revealed some intriguing new details about the new episodes. Chatting via the show's official Twitter account, he explained: "I think Jamie's past almost catches up with him slightly or comes back to haunt him. We meet some characters who come back into Jamie's life, and some are good, and some are more unsettling.

"This season we've had the build up to this War of Independence, this revolution. Jamie's been on the side of the British, he knows they're the losing side. As we get closer to that point, stakes are higher. Not only as the country as a whole, but in Fraser's Ridge as well. A revolution in the home as well."
