Caitriona was clearly touched by the show’s message and took to social media to pay her own tribute to the producers and fans who supported her Outlander journey.

“Wow. Can’t believe it’s been nine years,” Caitriona tweeted.

“I guess time flies when you’re having fun, living your dream, and spending it with an amazing group of people.

“As always thank you [Diana Gabaldon] for having created this incomparable character who has given me so much.

The actress went on to thank producers Ronald D Moore, Maril Davies, Starz and Sony Pictures for their continued support over the years.

She wrote: “Thank you @TallShipProds, @RonDMoore, @Outlander_STARZ and @SPTV for taking a chance on this newbie all those years ago.

“What an amazing ride it has and continues to be…and of course…thank you to all the amazing fans who always want more so we can keep this ride going!!!”

Thousands of Caitriona’s followers showed their support by liking and retweeting her latest post, and many responded to comments to express their continued love for her performance.

Hailey Beaupre replied, “Your casting as Claire has led to such an amazing role model who not only inspires me immensely, but literally saved my life.

“I will be forever grateful to you and Claire for this incomparable journey.

“I am living my dream thanks to you. I am alive thanks to you.

Diana plans to end the Outlander series after ten books, so fans are hoping there will be at least three more seasons after the highly anticipated seventh outing next year.

Outlander Seasons 1-6 are available on Starz in the US and StarzPlay in the UK.
