14787707_588354458016470_759822861_o

SCF were in London once more on October 13th to once again support our fave guy at the BFI London Film Festival Gala Screening of his latest film Their Finest. Below, Jemma from the team tells us all about it!

Arriving in Leicester Square at 8:30am, I got my number (5!) ready to line up for the red carpet later on that evening. It can be a long day, but with lovely fans of Sam coming up all the time & wanting to chat about him & his work it makes the time pass so quickly! And by 4:30pm it was time to start lining up, ready for the red carpet to begin. It’s so cool to watch it all coming together, from the photographers pens being set up, to the posters getting attached to the railings, to finally that all important red carpet going down! And before you know it, the cars are pulling up & it is showtime!

Sam’s ‘Me Before You’ DVD giveaway!

We all know our Sam is such a kind hearted guy. Back in May he proceeded to send fans in London into a frenzy of excitement when he very kindly left his signed copy of Me Before You (book) on a London tube for one lucky fan to find. And on October 8th he decided to do it again! This time, Sam was leaving his signed copy of the brand new Me Before You DVD somewhere in Central London. The DVD is not officially out in the UK until the 10th, so for the lucky fan who would manage to find this, it would be a wonderful surprise!

mrsamclaflin – So, even though the ME BEFORE YOU DVD isn’t officially out until Monday, I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on one. Now, I’ve ruined it with my scribble, so, sorry about that, but I’m heading out in to central London soon to leave it somewhere for someone to find… Tune in soon and I’ll let you know where it’ll be. Happy seeking.

A little while later, Sam (as promised) posted a sweet little video giving clues as to the DVDs location………

And one fan was lucky enough not only to find the DVD but to actually see Sam as he recorded the video! Congratulations Vanessa –  we hope you treasure it! And once again, a shout out to Sam for just being the best guy!!

SCF Staff Vacancies

P1050805-825x510

Dear everyone,

For the past few years, we have welcomed amazing people into Sam Claflin Fans. We must say SCF wouldn’t be where it is today without their precious help. Everyone gets busy, even us. However, never in a million years would we neglect SCF or ever stop supporting Sam.  That is why, to keep providing quality work, we are searching for 2 new people to become a part of the SCF Team. We treat SCF almost like a real business, therefore we consider it in a very serious way, like a real job, and not just a fan site for fun.
As you can imagine, we are looking for a very committed and reactive person, just like us. Someone who loves Sam, and knows EVERYTHING about his CAREER. But not only. First and foremost, we’re looking for someone serious, respectful and mature. Our main goal is to share the information and help promote Sam’s work. This leads to a certain availability, such as during premieres/promotion for new films when things can get very hectic.
– Perfect knowledge of English is mandatory
– Confidently know how to use Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and (eventually) WordPress for the website.
– Know how to search properly for news.
We know it may not sound fun, that’s why we are asking you to really consider it before applying by sending us an email to samclaflinfans@gmail.com. 
Most important of it all, it’s about working as a TEAM (meaning staying in touch as much as we can).
Thanks so much for reading, we hope to hear from some of you as soon as possible.
Val, Jemma, Aly & Anna


Their Finest – Exclusive Clip

With thanks to Entertainment Weekly we are able to have our first exclusive look at Sam’s new film Their Finest. Based on the novel Their Finest Hour and a Half by Lissa Evans, the film follows a group of filmmakers charged with creating an inspiring film during the Blitz of London during World War II. Sam plays Tom Buckley, a lead writer for the Ministry of Information’s Film Division, a somewhat tetchy, sarcastic man who clashes at first with Gemma Arterton’s character Catrin. It is a completely different character for Sam and we think you can see from the clip below that he is fantastic in it! We really cannot wait to see the full film when it is released!

 



‘Their Finest’ Premiere at TIFF16

On September 11th, Sam’s latest film Their Finest had its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival and Sam was there alongside co-stars Gemma Arterton & Bill Nighy to promote it. The comedy drama, which follows a group of filmmakers charged with creating an inspiring film during the Blitz of London during World War II, will have its UK premiere on October 13th at the London Film Festival & it is already attracting some incredible reviews, including this one from Varietyin which Sam’s performance is praised highly:

Claflin reveals an entirely different side of his performing talents. His youthful good looks obscured by thick Joycean glasses, a slightly receded hairline, and that particular type of poor posture that can’t help but scream “writer,” the actor translates the insinuating arrogance of his “Hunger Games” role into tetchy, neurotic sarcasm with admirable success.
