Caitriona Balfe has been named in People Magazine's 'Most Beautiful' issue.

The 35-year-old was born in Dublin and grew up in Monaghan before a succesful modelling career took her around the world.

After a spell as one of the world's most in-demand models, including walking the runway in a Victoria's Secret show, Balfe returned to her first love; acting.

After a cameo in The Devil Wears Prada in 2006, Balfe retired from modelling to pursue acting full time in 2009.

From then she has appeared in films alongside Sylvester Stallone but it was when she landed the role of Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser in the hit US show Outlander that she really rose to fame Stateside.

Speaking about the accolade from People Magazine, Balfe said on Twitter: 'Thank you @people for including me in your #MostBeautiful. My lanky inner 12 year old is gob-smacked x'
