In recent years, Sam Heughan became one of the stars of the moment thanks to his starring role in Outlander. It was the role of Jamie Fraser that led him to travel the world and to be sought out by different productions to be part of their jobs, which is why, today, the Scottish actor reaped an extensive curriculum and, in fact, even reached become a show host.
With Outlander, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe managed to increase tourism in Scotland since Diana Gabaldón’s novels, on which the series is based, are set in that country. So much so that Starz Play, the platform from which the strip originated, made another program with him as a host with Graham McTavish where they both tour the most iconic Scottish Highlands.
And just like the fictional drama in which he played landowner Fraser, Heughan was hugely successful with Men in Kilts, the miniseries with which Scotland became the favorite country of its fans. It was in January when this adventure started in which the interpreter, in addition to touring the place where he was born, wore the typical clothes such as the kilts that he also used in Outlander.

Yesterday, Tuesday July 13, the list of nominees for the 73rd edition of these awards was known and both Sam and his production were conspicuous by their absence.
That is why, Sam Heughan He did not hesitate to express himself via Twitter and give an opinion on the emptiness that La Academia made him. “Maybe Men in Kilts wasn’t recognized by the Emmys, but I’m so happy to hear that the fans loved it.”, He wrote attaching a gif of him and McTavish in one of the chapters where they are seen simulating a celebration.
