As you may know Journey’s End was released in the UK on February 2nd. A couple of interviews were released for the occasion. Sam shares with us a bit of his life, mentioning his family as well as his career choices.

 

My latest film, Journey’s End, is set in the First World War. I play a mentally disintegrating officer, Captain Stanhope. When I read the script, I was sold — hook, line and sinker. I’d never call myself a method actor, but I do sometimes find that I take my work home with me. I’d been walking around on set being angry all day, pretending I was drunk. Laura understood the need for me to have some quiet time after all that.” – Read more at The Sunday Time, “A Life In The Day: Sam Claflin“.

 

Stanhope is the character that everyone wants to play. What’s interesting about him is that he’s still a young lad, but at the same time he’s lived and experienced so much he’s like a 60-year-old man, you know? “I think there are some similarities between myself and Stanhope. For example, his anger comes from fear and when I get scared, I tend to take it out on people—the people I love and who are closest to me. I think everyone does to an extent.” – Read more at Readers Digest.
