Personal life, wife Caitriona Balfe

Lots of her fans considered that she dated her on-screen husband from the “Outlander” series – Sam Heughan – and even waited for their engagement and wedding. However, the actors were not in a hurry to disappoint their fans, not confirming but at the same time not denying the rumors about an affair, keeping their private life low-key to warm up interest in the series they were playing in. However, in 2015 Donal Brophy, Caitriona’ friend and the owner of “Mc Carthy’s Bar”, posted the video on which Caitriona was playing the Irish flute sitting on Tony’s lap.
Caitriona’s fans were shocked with the news she was dating someone other than Sam Heughan, however, Caitriona kept her personal life low-key until their mutual appearance on such events as the opening of Jodie Foster’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2016, and then a year later, at the 2017 Oscar Wilde Awards. The level of seriousness of their relationship was given out when Caitriona displayed her engagement ring while attending the 75th annual Golden Globes Sunday night along with Tony. The nominee in the category Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series–Drama for her role of Claire Fraser in the “Outlander” series impressed everyone with her golden ring, with a big round diamond and two dark-blue sapphires on either side of it. ‘It happened over the break, I’m very happy’, she shared, answering multiple questions from the reporters.

Who is Caitriona Balfe?
Early life and family
Caitriona Balfe was born 4 October 1979, in Dublin, Ireland, and is famous for being a former model and now-actress. Growing up in the village called Tydavnet, located not far from Monaghan, Caitriona was one of seven children in her family. One of her brother’s names is Francis.
From a young age Caitriona wanted to be on stage, and was noticed by some local model agencies, so she started her professional way participating in catwalk shows, and came to prominence appearing for such fashion houses as Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianfranco Ferré, and many others, and by 2010 Caitriona had made it to the list of the Top 20 of the world’s most in-demand models. However, before she became that famous, she faced serious troubles with agencies she worked with. The Italian agency called Paolo Tomei first delayed payments, and then filed for bankruptcy, not even wanting to pay its models for their work, including Caitriona and many other girls – Caitriona lost over $300,000.
A similar situation happened during Caitriona’s work with the company called BCBG – they also delayed the payments, but Caitriona managed to get the money she was owed, by refusing to participate in the next shows and projects she was signed to until she got paid.
‘Modelling wasn’t a passion of mine, so that made it get old kind of quickly. I was getting very frustrated’, Caitriona shared, explaining her decision to leave modelling. She started getting new offers, and was invited to appear in various TV shows as an expert model, or a supporting actress. It is worth mentioning that even being a full-time model Caitriona appeared in the movie called “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006) playing the minor role of an employee of the magazine “Runway” mentioned in the movie.
She was the invited guest at the shows called “The Model Scouts”, “Project Runway” and many others. She also started playing minor roles, appearing in such shows as “H+” (2011 – present) and “The Beauty Inside” (2012). In 2012 she joined the casts of such movies as “Lost Angeles”, playing the role of Veronique, and “The Wolf”, landing the role of Sally. In 2013 she appeared in three movies: “Crush”, “Now You See Me” and “Escape Plan”. However, the greatest twist in her acting career happened after her accepting the offer from the Starz network. Caitriona landed the role of Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser in the popular series “Outlander”, based on the eponymous novel by Diana Gabaldon. The series was first launched in August 2014, and instantly became a hit.
When she has breaks from filming “Outlander”, she appears in other TV projects or films, such as “The Price of Desire” (2015), in which she played the role of Gabrielle Bloch; “Money Monster” (2016), landing the role of Diane Lester; “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” (2019 – present), a new series in which Caitriona landed the role of Tavra.
For her work in the series “Outlander” Caitriona has won multiple awards in the categories “Best Actress on Television” and “Best Actress in a Television Series”. Thus, in 2015, she was rewarded by The Anglophile Channel Awards and Saturn Awards. Irish Film & Television Awards nominated her as “Best Actress in a Lead Role Drama” in 2015 and 2016, however, she won the award only in 2018. She was also nominated for Golden Globe Awards in 2016, ‘17 and ‘18.
