In 2009, he landed the role as semi-regular Scott Nielson the boyfriend of Nurse Cherry Malone and secret drug dealer in the BBC soap opera, Doctors. In 2011, he played Prince Ashton in A Princess for Christmas.
In 2013, Heughan was cast to play Jamie Fraser in Outlander on Starz. He was the first cast member officially announced, to great praise by the author of the series, Diana Gabaldon, who said, "Oh. My. God. That man is a Scot to the bone and Jamie Fraser to the heart. Having seen Sam Heughan not just act, but be Jamie, I feel immensely grateful to the production team for their painstaking attention to the soul of the story and characters."
