The lead stars of the Outlander season 3 cast playfully teased each other on Twitter. However, their banter is not about what fans of the series might think.
Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) of the Outlander season 3 cast exchanged words on Twitter recently. It started with a tweet from the Scottish actor directed at the Irish actress.
Apparently, both are rugby fans. Thus, Heughan (Jamie) decided to engage Balfe (Claire) in a wager to see who between their respective teams will win the Six Nations rugby clash happening in Edinburgh.
Twitter Banter of Outlander Season 3 Cast Members
Interestingly, the Twitter banter has nothing to do with the tension between their characters in Outlander season 3. In late January, behind-the-scenes spoiler photos showed Claire (Balfe) and Jamie (Heughan) in what appeared to be an argument.
Then again, the outcome of their wager could spill over to the set. As it turns out, whoever loses will have to wear the other star’s team shirt. Alas, it would appear Scotland had the upper hand over Ireland during their match at 2017 Six Nations. The final score was 27 to 22, BBC reported.
Hence, Heughan retweeted a post from a fan who graciously presented both stars with a fashion option for the Scottish team. However, would the Irish actress wear stay true to the wager and wear the hooded jumpsuit?
Perfect for the lady https://t.co/N0fH8RW27Y

Earlier reports scheduled the production’s travel to South Africa happening in May. However, the timetable reportedly moved up to March. Heughan’s revelation would mean another shift in schedule. A harbor scene shot by Jamie (Heughan) and Claire (Balfe) hint at their possible travel to Jamaica this year. Check out pictures from the Twitter feed of Chris Saint-Martin.
