Summary Outlander star Sam Heughan shows off a new, modern side in steamy first look images from The Couple Next Door. The remake of the Dutch series New Neighbours follows the dramatic fallout of an affair between Evie (Eleanor Tomlinson) and her neighbor Danny (Heughan). The images also give a glimpse into the tense relationship between Evie and her partner Pete (Alfred Enoch).
The Couple Next Door images reveal Outlander star Sam Heughan in an entirely new, but still steamy, context. The show, which will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK and Starz in the U.S., is a remake of the Dutch series New Neighbours. It follows the dramatic fallout of the events that occur when Evie (Eleanor Tomlinson) and Pete (Alfred Enoch) move in next door to Danny (Heughan) and Becka (Jessica De Gouw), and Evie has an affair with Danny.
Per TVLine, Starz has shared a gallery of first-look The Couple Next Door images. The images showcase Heughan in a leather motorcycle-riding getup, which is a far cry from his Scottish warrior character Jamie Fraser on the historical drama Outlander. The gallery also offers a glimpse into the tense relationship between Evie and Pete. Check out the full-size images below:
Heughan is likely the best-known cast member of The Couple Next Door. In addition to his stint as Jamie Fraser on Outlander, which just finished airing the first half of season 7, he has also appeared in such projects as The Spy Who Dumped Me, Love Again, and Bloodshot. However, the rest of the main cast of the series has also appeared in various prominent titles throughout their careers.
The second most recognizable performer in the upcoming series is likely Alfred Enoch. Enoch is best known for playing the role of Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter franchise. He originated the character in 2001's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, going on to reprise the role in every subsequent Harry Potter movie except the seventh, 2010's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
Opposite Enoch is Eleanor Tomlinson, a TV veteran with credits in series including Poldark, Death Comes to Pemberley, and The Outlaws. De Gouw also has extensive credits that include The Crown, Underground, and Pennyworth. With these four performers in the lead, The Couple Next Door looks to be an intriguing new series.
