Sam Heughan has become the latest Scot to scoop the legendary Tennent’s Golden Can award.

The actor, from Dumfries and Galloway, started out in River City, Rebus and was even the face of Tennent’s eccentric founder Hugh Tennent in their 125th anniversary ad campaign.

Sam’s career then sky-rocketed after landing a role in US cult-TV show turned global hit Outlander.

He was in Glasgow yesterday to present an award at the BAFTA Scotland Awards with co-star Caitriona Balfe at the Radisson Blu.

The telly hunk was then served with the the legendary Golden Can for his TV success.

Tennent’s present the cans to the most deserving Scots icons in the world of film, TV, comedy, music, sport and all other areas of Scottish culture.

Sam will be in the company of other cultural legends like Irvine Welsh, Mark Millar, Biffy Clyro, and Karen Gillan in the Golden Can Hall of Fame.

On receiving the award, Sam said: “Thank you to Tennents…I’m delighted to be awarded this as an ambassador for Scotland.

“Playing Hugh Tennent, the founder of the Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery was a great honour for me.

“To be a representative of Scotland and Scottish culture is a great honour, so I’ll raise a glass to Tennent’s and Scotland.”

Alan McGarrie, Head of UK Brand Marketing at Tennent’s, said: “We hope that playing the role of our legendary Hugh Tennent in 2010 helped him along the way to Hollywood and we couldn’t be prouder.

“Sam has well and truly earned his place in the Golden Can Hall of Fame.” [Source]
