This isn't the first time that one of the stars has praised the other. In a recent interview with ExtraTV, Caitríona revealed that she was grateful to have had Sam by her side since the drama began. 

"I just feel really grateful that from day one, Sam and I have really gotten along and I think we also both made a conscious effort to really have each other's backs and we knew that whatever length of time we would have on the show or whatever the journey was going to be, he and I were the only two people who were going to understand this unique experience," she said. 

Caitríona is currently starring in the sixth season of the popular period piece in which she plays Claire alongside Sam's Scottish Highlander Jamie.
