Sam recently talked with Gentleman’s Journal about Peaky Blinders upcoming season 6, how he spent his lockdown and had to learn playing guitar. Check out his interview below:

Sam Claflin may be the only actor in the world whose life became busier after lockdown. It’s true. While most other thesps and theatrical types were busy pausing their productions, shutting their sets and heading home for a breather, Claflin’s life was getting more and more complicated by the minute.

It was early March, and the actor was stuck out in Los Angeles. He’d moved to California just days earlier for a new television project and, slap-bang in the middle of an (already rather stressful) relocation, the pandemic began to really heat up. In fact, Claflin had barely recovered from his jet lag when, right on inconvenient cue…

“The announcement came!” the actor himself announces down the phone line. “Lockdown! And, suddenly, after flying out there, I had two days to grab my stuff, leave L.A. and come back home again. At the time, I thought it would be a two-week quarantine in London, so I left my suitcase with a friend and said; ‘I’ll be back in two weeks’. It’s been there for months…”

A chuckle. A sigh. Claflin’s clearly mourning that long-lost suitcase. But he’s a resilient sort — and the 34-year-old is soon describing how good it feels to be back on set. A mere 12 months after he left Los Angeles, Claflin is calling me from his car. He’s on the way to work, filming the final series of razor-sharp ratings hit Peaky Blinders.
