Sam is featured in a great photoshoot for GQ Style entitled ‘Color Inside The Lines’. Alongside some absolutely gorgeous shots by photographer David Burton, there is a little interview with our fave guy in which he discusses his role as Alistair Ryle in The Riot Club:

Perhaps no demographic has benefited more from the rise of teen-movie franchises than young Brits. Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, Theo James of Divergent, the Hemsworth brothers (Aussie, but same deal). The latest in the invasion is Sam Claflin, best known to American audiences as Finnick Odair from the last couple of Hunger Games. When we meet Finnick in the second film, he looks like a SoCal bro who “forgot” to put on a shirt. In the latest, the third, Mockingjay, Part I (try to keep up), he’s in gulag grays and suffering PTSD but somehow no less winning.

Claflin, who got into acting at 16 after giving up his dreams of soccer, says that after The Hunger Games he was eager to play something other than a hunk with a trident. In this spring’s The Riot Club, a satire about a fictitious dining club at Oxford, he’s a one-percenter who gets to unironically scream lines like “I am sick to fucking death of poor people!” and throw his champagne glass at the wall. Despite the regal jawline and tousled locks, Claflin himself grew up working- class. What he found most surprising about these societies wasn’t simply how money can buy you out of anything, but also how thuggish these groups of supposed gentlemen can be. There’s a moment in the film when someone insinuates that they’re acting no better than schoolkids with bricks. “My character takes huge offense because We’re gentlemen, we’ve got money—we’re not thugs. But it’s basically just gang culture in the upper class.” The Hunger Games also treads in class warfare, though the chief concern playing Finnick, Claflin admits, was that “I was never sure whether to leave underwear on or take underwear off in the tanning bed.” We didn’t notice any tanlines.—Sarah Goldstein


Check out all the gorgeous shots (including two stunning outtakes!) below. We think he looks incredible – don’t you agree?

Sam & director Lone Scherfig talk about their memories of filming The Riot Club with Now Toronto.
If you only know Sam Claflin as the dude who fell in love with the mermaid in that last Pirates Of The Caribbean film or bad-guy-turned-good Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games films, you’re in for a bit of a shock with his new movie.
In The Riot Club, he plays Alistair, a quiet, privileged Oxford student whose angry ideas about class come out verbally – and eventually physically.
The role couldn’t be more different from his own background growing up in the town of Ipswich, England, says the actor on the day of the film’s world premiere at TIFF.
“I went to an average high school, had a life that was as normal as normal can be,” he says, sporting a casual, scruffy look in contrast to Alistair’s buttoned-down appearance.
“There was no privilege whatsoever. In fact, we were probably on the opposite end of the spectrum. My brothers and I worked ever since we could walk, in one way or another, and we all made our own ways.
“So for me to be going into this film and saying a line like ‘I fucking hate poor people!’ is quite a stretch. I’m not looking forward to my mum and dad watching it.”
Director Lone Scherfig hails from Denmark but works a lot in England, having made An Education (in which she introduced the world to Carey Mulligan, who went on to get a BAFTA Award and an Oscar nomination) and the Jim Sturgess/Anne Hathaway romance One Day.
“There is a class system in Denmark, but not to the degree you find in England,” she says in a separate interview. “It really is extreme in England. And the social mobility is quite low compared to places like [Canada].”
The film’s most remarkable scene is an extended sequence in which the Riot Club, a group of wealthy Oxford students, wreak havoc on a country inn.
It was filmed, in sequence, over two weeks in Pinewood Studios.
“We were like these caged animals in one room, and you could feel the tension build and build,” says Claflin. “Occasionally I had to take myself away from the action, because my character is an observer, a quiet manipulator. I found myself sitting in a corner watching the other guys. I also found myself wobbling a lot, mimicking a drunk feeling. The buildup of the tension felt natural. And when we had the opportunity to literally rip the set apart, it was quite something.”
Scherfig and her crew filmed the scene with handheld cameras to get a sense of speed and urgency, she says.
“We wanted to get the sense of an explosion from inside. It’s almost like what happens to the camera is what happens to the boys.”
And was it difficult maintaining control of all these elements?
“The actors were collaborative and disciplined,” she says. “They behaved much better in real life than they do in the film.”

Sam & his beautiful wife Laura Haddock attended the 2015 EE BAFTA awards held at the Royal Opera House in London on February 8th. They looked absolutely incredible – Sam looked smart in a black 3 piece tuxedo with a classic bow tie and Laura looked like a princess in a stunning pale pink ballerina style dress. Sam also presented an award with his Mockingjay and The Riot Club co-star Natalie Dormer and the pair posed for photos in the press room afterwards.
