With Me Before You already delighting fans in cinemas worldwide, a compiled list of critic reviews demonstrates Sam’s versatility and talent as an established actor in the film industry. And we couldn’t be prouder! Way to go Sam!
“Claflin is also solid as Will, a man obviously tortured by what has happened to him. When the script allows it, the actor can play into his natural charm, and there are certain beats that pay off along the way…”
“I’ve never seen Claflin in a movie before, but his performance in Me Before You makes me want to go back and watch his entire catalogue. He delivers a powerful performance, breaking our hearts in one moment and making us laugh out loud in the next. Claflin is a fantastic actor and the chemistry between him and Clarke was evident throughout the movie. I look forward to watching many more films with him in the leading role.” Read more »
As filming nears its end, Sam has traveled to Arezzo, Tuscany to film some scenes as Philip Ashley in the upcoming remake of Daphne Du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel. Doesn’t he look dashing in his perfectly period outfit? As always, he also took some time out to chat to fans & have photos taken during his time there. He really is the best!
SCF were honoured to be invited to the official FDA multimedia press screening of Me Before You on Thursday 26th May at the Curzon Mayfair in London. Jemma from the team went along to represent us and decided to take us all along for the ride in her (spoiler free!) video diary below. Check it out!
You can catch Sam as Will Traynor, and Emilia Clarke as Louisa Clark, learning to live boldly and love endlessly in this beautiful romantic-drama in cinemas from June 3rd!
(Huge thanks to @jonnyhadapigeon for editing the video so beautifully!)
We all know that Sam has recently been working hard on his new role as Philip Ashley in the remake of Daphne Du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel and now, very excitingly, we have seen our first on set look of him in action! With thanks to tomandlorenzo.com and the Daily Mail we are able to show you these amazing photos of Sam and his co-stars Rachel Weisz, Iain Glen & Holliday Grainger on the set of the period romantic thriller. And we hope you agree that Sam looks rather dashing in his period attire! Check out the amazing photos (including some of him horse-riding!) below. This seems like a completely new & challenging role for Sam & we honestly can’t wait to hear/see more about it as filming continues!

SCF were in London once again to support our fave guy at the long-awaited European premiere for Me Before You! And we are so excited to be able to tell you all about it!
Although we knew that it was unlikely that Sam would make the premiere (as he is really busy filming My Cousin Rachel at the minute!) we wanted to be there, as always, to support him & his incredible work in this film! And of course, he was due to present a fan screening later on that evening! We went to the Curzon Mayfair (where the premiere was to be held) at 11am on Wed 25th May in order to get our wristbands for the premiere. Then it was a case of waiting until the excitement of the night!
When the time arrived for us to take our places at the premiere we managed to get a great spot where we could see the cars pulling up & catch all the stars as they arrived on the red carpet! We saw Jojo Moyes and told her how thrilled we were that Sam had been chosen to play Will & that we knew he would do an incredible job. We also saw the director Thea Sharrock & thanked her for choosing him for this amazing role! And, as always, we would like to thank Sam’s lovely Mum & Dad (& little brother Joe!) for coming over to say hi & have a little chat with us on the way in -they are always so kind and it is always a pleasure to see them!
After all the stars went in to watch the film, it was time to wait for Sam’s arrival! He posted on Instagram to say that he had just finished filming & was on his way back to London, so we took our spot next to the door and waited for our fave guy to arrive! After Sam introduced the film to the lucky fans inside the screening, he came out to see the fans patiently waiting at the front. And then it was our turn! It was so lovely to see him again! As always, he was so happy to see us there and thanked us for coming. We told him that we would always be here to support him & that we couldn’t wait to see the film and that we knew he would be incredible and he was genuinely touched. It truly is a pleasure to support such a kind and talented man each & every day.
So there you have it! We hope you enjoyed reading about our latest premiere adventure and we are looking forward to the next one! Very excitingly, SCF were also invited to attend a press screening for Me Before You on Thursday 26th! Be sure to check back with us in the next few days to see our article all about that (including spoiler free video review!)
London once again shines its light upon a gleaming red carpet for the Me Before You UK Premiere, held at Curzon Mayfair cinemas. Boarding a plane straight from the NYC premiere, Sam was unable to attend due to filming commitments, as you can see in his instagram post, and here:
But that didn’t stop him from surprising everyone at the exclusive screening afterwards! Author Jojo Moyes, director Thea Sharrock, and cast members Emilia Clarke, Jenna Coleman and Joanna Lumley also attended.
We were also very lucky to have SCF support Sam at the premiere, and will be writing an article all about our adventure very soon!
New York. The city of lights, skyscrapers, and in our case the first Me Before You premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Square in New York City. We are so excited the day has finally come!
Sam looked sharp in a dark grey suit with a light shirt, navy tie and pocket square, while Emilia Clarke was stunning in a Chloe dress adorned with pink frills. Joining the co-stars on the red carpet, director Thea Sharrock, author Jojo Moyes and Janet McTeer, who also plays Will Traynor’s mother in the film, completed the picture in complementary dresses of black and white. Smiling and laughing amongst themselves, this was a perfect start to the screenings that officially begin June 3rd (UK).
Exciting news! With thanks to Warner Bros UK we are able to share with you this exclusive clip from Me Before You! How lucky are we? Careful of spoilers, but you can watch it below. And be sure to catch the film when it hits cinemas on June 3rd!
Although Sam hasn’t been able to take part in the full US promo for Me Before You due to filming commitments, he made the trip to NYC in order to take part in some press interviews with co-star Emilia Clarke in the run up to the film’s release on June 3rd. Here you will find all the interviews & photos as and when we find them, so keep checking back!
