Sam Clafin

Sam was recently interviewed by WWD during the promo of his recent movie Adrift. He talks about his career and his upcoming projects The Nightingale, The Corrupted and Borderland. Make sure to check out the full interview: Here.

The great thing about my career lately is that yes things have been incredibly varied, but I’m not going out of my way to make that happen. I’m fortunate enough to get a few offers come my way, and occasionally there will be a script that I’m desperate to do that won’t go my way — and you know, it’s a difficult career path,” he says. “I’m at that point in my career — I’m still youngish and new, and I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I enjoy the most. I haven’t done every genre, I haven’t worked with every director, I haven’t worked with every actor. I just want to float around and try a bit of everything.

Sam was recently interviewed by The Telegraph for the promotion of his recent movie Adrift. He talks about various aspects of his life, from his career to family life. Make sure to check out the full interview: Here.

Laura has always met the other person I’ve been intimate with, in that sense,’ he says. ‘With Shay [Shailene], she and Laura talked on the phone and on FaceTime and I just knew they would hit it off when they met.’” […]

There’s also Claflin’s more debonair recent experience of modelling for a DKNY campaign, shimmying through the streets of New York in a variety of well-cut suits. ‘I’ve developed expensive taste. My parents came shopping with me and they said, “How much for a pair of socks? You could buy two jumpers for that…”’ […]

“Passing the baton between film jobs, he and Haddock both take equal turns to work. They have never had a nanny. ‘We’ve had babysitters and friends and family. We had help for a month when our schedules clashed. But not a nanny. It’s not what we want. We want to be parents.’”[…]

“He doesn’t post much about his children online. ‘Purely because it’s not fair on them, later in life. What if one of them wanted to be a banker?’ We laugh. This is a man whose normality makes him abnormal, and thoroughly decent. A man for Hollywood as it – increasingly – would like to be. He heads home to Pip and baby Margot – now named to the world. ‘It’s not that I’m unduly private,’ he sums up. ‘It’s more that nobody ever asked before.’”

Up Close & Claflin

The new James Bond. The new Hugh Grant. Sam Claflin (1986) has  heard all of the comparisons. The steady actor lets the compliments slip. There are more important things in the world. Acting for him ‘a job’, but one to which he is fully committed.

Sam Claflin has starred in The Riot Club, a take on student life in Oxford, in fantasy films like Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Hunger Games, but also in romantic roles such as Me Before You and Love, Rosie. For others, his career sounds like a dream – and it is – though the actor remains with both feet firmly on the ground. Last summer he was both thirty and a father, making life suddenly feel different for the young Englishman. “I feel like an adult for the first time. I’ve started a new chapter in my life and have to remind myself that I have a responsibility.”

Will you always make different types of movies?

I always try to find new challenges. Much of my work until now has been suitable for the whole family. Now I want to explore new aspects of this profession to prove that I am more than what you think you know.

What kind of movies feel most natural to you?

Hard to say. I do not think I’m an action hero but I would have liked a try. At the same time I like to get down and dirty for a role, feel the real depth of it. I feel at ease when I continually push myself. That’s what I want to do more and more.

Some people see in you the new James Bond.

I think I speak for every Englishman, and basically for every man, when I say that it would be an absolute honor to play James Bond. It’s such a great character. But I’m not putting bets on me taking on that role. It would be wonderful but I keep focusing on other things.

You studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art; What was your most valuable lesson which you learnt there?

I learned so much there. It was the most valuable three years of my life. It taught me a lot about the whole business of film, politics and everything around it. Things of which I was unaware. It also made me realize that everyone approaches this profession differently. The main lesson is: be yourself, try not to emulate anybody. You work with different actors and directors, and they all approach the subjects differently. So be comfortable with whom you work with and what you do.

You also performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company. How was that?

It is not my strongest point. With all due respect to my former teachers, Shakespeare was not very well taught to us. That’s why I cherish the little warm feelings I do have for it. It’s something which I gradually grew to love with Drama, but I’m certainly not a natural talent in Shakespearean roles. Read more »

Interview with Hey U Guys

Promoting the upcoming romantic-drama Me Before You, set for release on June 3rd (UK), Sam was interviewed by Stefan Pape from HeyUGuys about his stunning portrayal of Will Traynor. Sam sets a strong focus on understanding not just the fictional authenticity of portraying Will’s changing moods from animosity to amiability, but the real ‘eye-openers’ of his research into the different challenges and realities faced by quadriplegics in adapting to their new lives. Clearly, Me Before You has left an indelible mark on him, as it has for us and all its readers.

To say Sam Claflin’s star is rising seems woefully inadequate; rocketing would be a more appropriate term. Certainly there has been nothing steady about the actor’s career path to date. Just months out of LAMDA he was notching up parts in prestigious TV shows, chasing this up with scene stealing roles in Hollywood blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman. Claflin, 29, isn’t someone who’s about to rely on a megawatt smile and ‘nice guy’ reputation to keep stoking his career, however, if you’ve seen his turn in The Riot Club you’ll know he’s not afraid to do nasty.  Read more »
