Heughan recalled: "I'd been tasked with holding a tray of the guests' drinks while they nipped out for a puff, and I was gossiping with a colleague when I looked up and saw Richard Madden walking over to place his gin and tonic on my tray." Heughan went on to write that he was about to greet Madden when he realised that Madden hadn't remembered him. "The words caught in my throat. He hadn't recognized me, even though we had met a few times. My ex-girlfriend had lived in his Glasgow apartment," he wrote.

. Since then, a lot has changed as Heughan's role as Jamie in Outlander catapulted him into worldwide stardom and has since starred in The Spy Who Dumped Me, SAS: Red Notice, and Love Again which will be released in 2023. The Dumfries born actor doesn't have any ill feelings towards Madden for failing to recognize him but that it left him feeling "hurt" nonetheless. "It wasn't Richard's fault, he's the loveliest fellow and we've met since, but the fact that he was my peer and I wanted to be on the other side of the serving tray hurt," he continued. "The whole time, I just gripped tightly to the tray, my knuckles turning white, hoping the ground would swallow me up." Heughan wrote that afterward, he immediately "headed for the closest exit" as he was left feeling "ashamed and embarrassed". Reflecting on it, he acknowledged that the experience made him "more resolved" to continue with his acting career. Outlander seasons 1-6 are available on Starz in the USA and Lionsgate+ via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
