Scottish-born actor Sam Heughan is one of the best reasons to watch Outlander. In case you don’t know, the show period sci-fi about a Second World War nurse who gets thrown back in time to the 1940s, where she has to marry a young, Scottish warrior (played by Heughan) who is involved in the Jacobite risings. Their romance is complicated by the fact that she was already married in the 1940s.
It’s a role for which Sam needs to keep fit, and he’s been showing off quite how muscular he is for Men’s Health South Africa. After the mag teased the shoot back in May, we now get a far better look at the final product, with Sam being very sporty and allergic to shirts. Not that we’re complaining, of course, and we’re also appreciative that he didn’t feel the need to take a razor to his chest.
