Sam Heughan is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, and his love life has always piqued the interest of the press and paparazzi. The 41-year-old actor shot to prominence after portraying Jamie Fraser in the STARZ network’s popular film “Outlander” in 2014. The crowd adored the Scottish actor, and his on-screen romance with costar Caitriona Balfe became the talk of the town. Fans often wonder if Sam Heughan has a real-life girlfriend. The attractive Scottish actor’s dating history and love life are detailed below.
From late 2016 to early 2018, Sam Heughan dated Mackenzie Mauzy. The British-French magazine Marie Claire was the first to report that the two were dating when they attended the 2017 Oscars party together and reportedly sent flirtatious messages on social media before being seen together in public. From 2006 through 2008, MacKenzie Mauzy starred in the CBS serial opera “The Bold and the Beautiful,” as well as CSI and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
The paparazzi and media caught them together a few times in public in New York City, and Heughan also appeared on her social media account every now and then, but their romance faded in 2018. Mackenzie has since found a new partner with whom she is content.
It’s unclear whether Heughan dated Amy Shiels, who starred in movies including Cowboys and Angels (2003) and Veronica Guerin (2003). However, after Sam’s separation with Mackenzie in 2018, Amy Shiels showed up for the screening of Sam’s film The Spy Who Dumped Me, despite their being no photo of them together. Amy sparked fan conjecture in 2014 when she liked a now-deleted tweet claiming that Sam and her would make a fantastic pair, and she also liked a post in 2018 claiming that Heughan would make an excellent James Bond. In the same year, she shared a photo of herself with him on his birthday on Instagram, calling him “big brother” in the caption.
