We have a very special Valentine’s Day surprise for you, Sassenachs…
Everyone knows that Outlander’s Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have an undeniably electric on-screen connection, and since fans are feeling particularly thirsty during this Droughtlander, ET is gifting you with the exclusive first look at the actors’ original chemistry test!
Before you scream, “Je suis prest!” and press play on the video above, we must warn you that the never-before-seen footage you’re about to watch is mind-blowingly adorable. Side-effects may include excessive giggling, extreme swooning and the firm realization that no on-screen couple will ever compare to this one.
At this point in Outlander’s script-to-screen timeline, Heughan had already been cast to play Jamie Fraser and the production team was looking for the perfect actress to fill Claire Randall’s one-of-a-kind shoes.
“We were looking for chemistry between the two characters,” Outlander executive producer Ronald D. Moore said while prefacing the flashback moment. “We really felt that Cat was probably going to be the one, but this was the final moment. This was literally when she sealed the deal and got the show.”
“And as you see, they’ve already got the shorthand of their characters and there is definitely on-camera chemistry between the two. After the scene was over, we just kind of kept the tape running a little bit.” Moore continued, “We just wanted to see them a little bit more relaxed and sort of interacting. You can see that they’re sort of awkwardly aware that the camera is still running, but nonetheless, there is enough spontaneity and genuine affection and good humor between the two of them that it spoke volumes about their potential relationship.”

Caitriona Balfe Is Engaged! Outlander Actress Shows Off Her Ring at 2018 Golden Globes
Caitriona Balfe is engaged, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.
Balfe showed off her new sparkler at the Golden Globes on Sunday night (get a close-up view here).
“It happened over the break. I’m very happy,” she told PEOPLE.
The Outlander actress, 38, has been dating Tony McGill for nearly two years. Though they have kept their relationship out of the public eye, the two were photographed together at the 2017 Oscar Wilde Awards in February. He also accompanied her at the 2016 ceremony for Jodie Foster’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
They were first seen together in 2015 when a friend shared an Instagram video of Balfe sitting on McGill’s lap.
Along with her engagement, Balfe is also celebrating her Golden Globe nomination for best performance by an actress in a television series, drama, for her starring role in the Starz romantic drama.
Caitriona was in attendance at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards tonight and this post is a master post of the event’s coverage. Here are links to all the Golden Globe albums I have made in the gallery as well as some videos. Big thanks to my friends for their donations: Sara, Maria, Ashley, and Elle.
"This is a moment of change, it's a moment of looking at our industry and standing up and saying #TimesUp on this, and I'm grateful that I'm here and that I get to be a part of this." – @caitrionambalfe #GoldenGlobes #ETGlobes pic.twitter.com/lDKhVl0Gi1
