Below you will find more interviews of Sam and co-star Aisling Franciosi promoting the movie ahead of the release of the movie in the UK on Friday 29th.


  • For an actor often associated with heroic and romantic roles, Claflin found it hard to resist playing the profoundly unsympathetic officer who brutalises just about everything and everybody he touches” – read the full review The People’s Movies
  • As an actor, there’s always something quite attractive about pushing myself and challenging myself in new ways and, I suppose, learning what my limitations are and how comfortable I am to push myself and how far I’m willing to go.” – read Sam’s full interview with Yahoo UK
  • “Claflin is the most surprising of all as the ruthless deviant Hawkins. Having primarily played dashing romantic protagonists, Claflin goes with frightening realism into the psyche of a man addicted to power and unable to control his rage.” – read the full review The Upcoming
  • It took a little while to get into the mindset of a man like that.” – Read Sam’s full interview with Yahoo UK 
  • Playing the detestable Lieutenant Hawkins, Sam Claflin continues a villainous streak he began playing fascist leader Oswald Mosley in the latest series of Peaky Blinders. It’s not hard to see why, as both performances are undeniably among his best. Hawkins is so horrifying primarily because he is so believable; he is unhinged in a way only men in power are allowed to be, hiding his capacity for extreme violence under a thin veneer of respectability. Whether engaging in disturbing acts of cruelty or sucking up to his superiors in hopes of a promotion, Claflin is note-perfect, delivering a performance as captivating as it is chilling.” –  read the full review Extended Cut 
  • Claflin delivers a career-defining characterisation as the heinous and entitled Hawkins, who takes out his frustrations at his lack of promotion on all those around him, including Clare.” – Read full review Morning Star 
  • Claflin in a brave performance puts his A-list looks to chilling use, playing someone whose outward appearance belies their inner evil.” –  Read full review HeadStuff
  • On the flip side, you have a character like Hawkins who is in every way shape and form a truly despicable person, yet humanity finds itself creeping into his black soul on occasions. It’s not enough to completely turn him around like it does to Claire, but the fact that there could well be a decent person in there makes him all the more detestable, because he clearly can do the right thing but frequently chooses not to. Every act of villainy he commits in this movie is filled with just as much ferocity as the film’s protagonist, from his mistreatment of Claire (he has his way with her at least twice in the first act) to treating his own men with utter contempt (among them Damon Herriman, who has also appeared this year in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Judy & Punch, and out of all three appearances the most likeable character he’s portrayed is Charles Manson – let THAT sink in), and Claflin does such a great job at making this guy so loathsome yet so raw and troubled that his own fierce emotions make him a movie villain you not only hate but genuinely fear.” – Read full review Film Feeder
  • Claflin plays the bad guy very well. He spits his lines with real disgust, forcing audiences to become fully enveloped within the drama and shameful goings-on we see on the screen. He effortlessly forces Clare and her husband Aidan – who also serves under the Lieutenant – into submission, putting his fellow serving members of the British Army to use so that he can get his hands on whatever, and whoever, he wants. When he doesn’t get his own way, we see how he reacts, and it’s gut-wrenching to say the very least” – Read full review Female First 
  • “On the other hand, Kent unleashes the finest, most fearless performance of Claflin’s career. Frequently typecast as an everyday English nice guy, here he completely loses himself in a character which repeatedly pushes boundaries and comfort zones. Hawkins is unimaginably grotesque, and unthinkably evil, and Claflin entirely commits to his deviance. His accomplishment absolutely floored me” – Read full review Live for Film 
  • “As Clare’s main tormentor, Sam Claflin makes for a truly detestable character but never descends into cartoon villainy. He’s an all too human character, which makes his actions seem all the more barbaric. There are a couple of brief moments that seem to explain his actions, without trying to justify them, including a shocking moment towards the end that suggest he’s more tortured than he first seems.” – Read full review Critical Popcorn
