Sam HeughanThis season is starting in many ways.

While Outlander fans spent their weekend savoring the season six premiere of the Starz series, one of the cast members appeared to enjoy some quality time with a possible new love interest.

In photos obtained exclusively by CelebHomes News, the 41-year-old Scottish actor was seen having lunch at Café Select in New York’s Soho neighborhood with a mystery woman. Although it appears that the two were just friends who were having lunch, some photographs show them sharing a kiss during the meal.

The duo took a walk around the local area after lunch before Sam returned to his hotel. It’s not surprising that Sam and his staff are keeping quiet about romance rumors. The actor notoriously tries to keep his private life away from the spotlight.

“Certainly, relationships are hard when you’re working in Scotland 10 months a year,” the actor told Inquirer in January 2020. “I’m a frequent traveler and I try to make the most of any downtime. My career, however, comes first. Maybe one of these days I will meet someone.”
