On November 7th, filming commenced on Sam’s newest project Journey’s End. Based on the 1928 play by R C Sherriff, it tells the story of life in the trenches during WW1. Sam will portray Captain Dennis Stanhope, a young commanding officer who has changed dramatically due to his time on the front line in France. The cast also includes Asa Butterfield, Paul Bettany, Tom Sturridge, Toby Jones & Robert Glenister. Below, we have written a synopsis & a description of some of the main characters so you can familiarise yourself with them!*

Synopsis: Set during the First World War, Journey’s End concerns the lives of a group of British officers on the front line and opens in a dugout in the trenches in France. Raleigh, a new eighteen-year-old officer, fresh out of English public school, joins the besieged company of his friend and cricketing hero Stanhope, and finds him dramatically changed…

Stanhope (Sam Claflin) – Commanding Officer of an infantry company. Tall, with dark hair, carefully brushed, his uniform, though old & war stained is well cut & cared for. He is good looking, rather from attractive features, than the healthy good looks of Raleigh. Although tanned from months in the open air, there is a pallor under his skin and dark shadows under his eyes.

Osbourne (Paul Bettany) Officer. Tall & thin with a fine head of close cropped, iron grey hair. He looks about 45 – physically as hard as nails.

Raleigh (Asa Butterfield) Officer. A well-built, healthy looking boy of about eighteen, with the very new uniform of a second lieutenant.

Hibbert (Tom Sturridge) – Officer. A small, slightly built man in the early twenties, with a little moustache & a pallid face.
