This is why we are voting for Sam!
HE plays a hunky Highlander in a US cable series that’s never even been screened on British television. But Sam Heughan, star of time-travelling smash Outlander, is on the verge of scooping the Radio Times TV Champion of Champions award, seeing off some of the biggest names in broadcasting.
The 35-year-old beat heart-throb Poldark actor Aidan Turner in the semi-finals of the online contest and now faces comedy hero Ricky Gervais in the final. Voting for the award closes tomorrow but Sam’s hoping the worldwide fans of the American series – only available on Amazon Prime in the UK – will help him win the crown.
