The Outlander star was responding to a tweet from a fan when the hilarious thread erupted.
After a fan named Denise tweeted the pair, and fellow Outlander actor Steven Cree, asking about suggestions for a “strip to Scotland”, it appears Sam couldn’t help himself.
Messaging back from his official Twitter account, he quipped: “Depends if it’s a quick strip or not. Could be cold.
“Layers help. When stripping.”
The Tweet set fans’ pulses racing and it wasn’t long before Graham McTavish joined in dubbing his co-star as the ‘Stripmaster General’.
He added: “His extensive in-depth first-hand experience of stripping places him in a league apart.
“I find it also pays to have a ‘modesty haggis’ standing by.”
The 41-year-old star who plays Jamie Fraser quickly responded: “Ah. Well, a stripping haggis is a good choice but can be volatile.
“I’d suggest a partial strip, or perhaps a group strip?”
Fans were soon joining in with their own responses.
One joked: “I think that was a Freudian strip… oops, I mean slip.”
While another called for a “group strip” with Sam and Graham.
Another posted: “Playful Sam is my favorite kinda Sam!”
And it seems Sam is no stranger to stripping, with several more then sharing images of Sam doing just that from scenes from the show and incredibly, him skinny dipping on a beach.
While another person added: “Stripping and modesty do not gang together- let the haggis run free.”
