OUTLANDER's Sam Heughan has revealed he feared for the safety of his co-stars while filming a brutal fight scene in the middle of the night.
The 40-year-old actor plays Jamie Fraser in the Starz’s adaptation of the popular book series.
His admission came as he discussed a blood-filled scene where his character kills the men who violently sexually assaulted his wife Claire, who is played by Caitriona Balfe.
His men Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin) and Young Ian (John Bell) join him in the reprisal which takes place during the season five finale.
Appearing on the Outlander End of Summer Series, Heughan praised Balfe for her performance during the harrowing scenes.
He commented: "In the finale, I thought you were magnificent."
But when asked by Balfe if he enjoyed filming the fighting scenes, Heughan surprisingly responded: "I didn’t to be honest.

"I love the action but when you think it was 4am in the morning and you’re in the mud and you can’t see anything, I just remember it was particularly cold and I couldn’t see anything."
He went on: "There was one point where I thought, ‘I actually think I might hurt someone today.’”
Using his co-star Bell's performance as Young Ian in the scene as an example, he went on: "There is a small sequence where he has this fight in the background and throws a tomahawk and knocks a guy out.
"I don’t think he was meant to do that, but...," before praising the actor for his slight of hand.
