Diana Gabaldon and Sam Heughan surprised their fans during a Q&A in Germany when they openly kissed each other on the LIPS! Fans had mixed reactions to this, especially the fact that someone kissed their beloved “Outlander” star aside from Caitriona Balfe who plays Claire.
The good news is that Gabaldon didn’t shy away to answer the kissing incident on Twitter.
“We’d just done a successful show and everybody was kissing/hugging everybody onstage. Gary kissed me about 10 seconds after that, and Graham kissed me before Sam did,” she said.
During the RingCon event in Germany, event organisers had some trouble selling tickets to fans until the “Outlander” cast talked about the show, which turned out to be a huge success, hence, the kissing for as their “celebration” that the event pulled through and they managed to get the fans hyped. Gabaldon and Heughan were joined by Graham McTavish, Duncan Lacroix and Gary Lewis onstage at the said event.
Gabaldon and Heughan were the ones who promoted “Outlander” in Germany and whilst this is happening, Season 2 is currently underway. The premiere of the upcoming season of the hit Starz series may still be a few months ago and they even haven’t announced the premiere yet but fans are really excited for the upcoming season of the series.
And as for the much-awaited casting news concerning Brianna Randall’s character, Claire and Jamie’s daughter, the producers haven’t announced who will play her yet but they are close to to casting her part. This means that fans can expect an announcement pretty soon.
So fans, before you go on an outrage with the whole lip-locking thing that happened between Diana Gabaldon and Sam Heughan, don’t you worry because they were just genuinely happy that the event turned out well!
