Heughan’s comments come as Wardpark Studios, the private company which shoots Outlander for Sony, seeks £4 million in Scottish Government funding to expand its Cumbernauld site from four sound stages to six. The development, which also includes a back lot and offices, would increase the size of the facility by almost two thirds, taking it up to almost 80,000sq ft.

The existing site is used purely for filming Outlander, but as a condition of the deal, the extra sound stages could be hired out to other productions.

“We are very aware on Outlander that we’ve got this studio,” said Heughan. “It has been built for a specific use and we have proved it can be done. I know they have been talking for a long time about [a Scottish film studio].

“I think it would be great for another studio [to be built]. Scotland needs many studios – the more industry the better. We are creating jobs with Outlander, but we would love to create more obviously if there are other studios. The more the merrier, bring them on.

The 34-year-old plays a lead role in US television series Outlander which has seen him gain cult status in America while remaining relatively unknown in his homeland.

That looks likely to change when the first eight episodes of series one, based on author Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling books, finally become available on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK from Thursday.

“It is kind of odd because you are very removed from it in Scotland,” he said. “[The show] has been well received but it is always odd when people recognise you in America or at airports and come up to you. It is very nice but quite strange.”

The £50 million first series, which made extensive use of Scottish locations and was first screened on the US network Starz last autumn, is due to have joint premieres in London and Glasgow this evening.
