He told Fox News: “I’m very proud of my work, I’ve got a lot of love for it. It’s a big passion of mine and I’ve been doing it for quite a few years.
“It’s interesting it has come to the point where people want to put it on display.
“I never thought it was good enough to put on display. I never really considered it in that world.”
Fans of Rankin can also see him in a number of other roles alongside his starring turn on Outlander as well.
His first major television roles came when he was cast in the third season of the BBC show The Syndicate.
As well as this, he has also starred in the dramas From Darkness, Thirteen and The Last Kingdom.
Viewers will soon be able to see him as Roger once again in season six of Outlander on Starz.
Speaking on a recent PaleyFest panel, he also revealed what he was most looking forward to when filming begins on the new season.
He said: “Roger couldn’t be more ready for the Revolutionary War. I actually can’t wait to get out of the house to be honest.
“I’m desperate to get back on set, I truly can’t wait to get back on set. It will be lovely.
“Actually I have no idea what happens in book six because I haven’t read it so I think this will be the first time I’ll go in not knowing.”
Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Amazon’s Prime Video now.
