In celebration of Sam’s birthday, we have added 30 exclusive outtakes from Sam’s photoshoot for Hunger Magazine in 2014. We hope you will enjoy the photos! Please don’t re-post the photos, it would be greatly appreciated! We have some more outtakes from this shoot along with a few more and more gallery updates coming soon!
It has just been recently announced that Sam will attend the Giffoni Film Festival this year on July 21 to premiere Me Before You! You can read the press release below!
The British actor will visit Giffoni on July 21 with the premiere of “Me Before You”
Based on the Jojo Moyes novel of the same title, Me Before You tells the love story of Will Traynor (Claflin), a young, rich banker, whose life changes dramatically after an accident leaves him almost totally paralyzed and in a wheel chair, and his new assistant Lou Clark, (Emilia Clarke from HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones”), who will turn his life upside down yet again. The film is helmed by first time director Thea Sharrock.
Claflin is a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. His breakthrough role was the 2010 television mini-series The Pillars of the Earth, based on the Ken Follett novel of the same title, and produced by Ridley and Tony Scott. He went on to play Philip Swift alongside Johnny Depp and Penélope Cruz in the fourth film of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011). Claflin has recently finished filming My Cousin Rachel alongside Rachel Weisz, due for release next year. Additional film credits include Love, Rosie (2014), The Riot Club (2014), and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) in which he played the Prince Charming character William, alongside Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Hemsworth. Claflin recently reprised that role for a cameo in the sequel, The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016).
As I said, I will be working on adding more to the gallery to make it more complete. I’ve added high quality promotional images and episode stills of Sam from one if his first television series in 2010, Any Human Heart. Sam played the young Logan Mountstuart. I hope you’ll enjoy these photos!

YAHOO – Here’s a reassuring message to the fans of Jojo Moyes’ tear-jerking bestselling novel Me Before You: Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin are absolutely the Louisa and Will you’re looking for. As the star-crossed lovers at the heart of director Thea Sharrock’s highly anticipated film adaptation (which hits theaters on June 3), the two actors bring the characters’ initially combative, but ultimately romantic relationship to vivid life. Even though Clarke and Claflin had never worked together prior to making Me Before You, their onscreen chemistry suggests that they’ve known each other for years.
But how well do they really know each other? Yahoo Movies decided to put them to the test by quizzing the actors on the franchises that made them both stars. Clarke, of course, plays Daenerys Targaryen on the blockbuster HBO fantasy series, Game of Thrones, while Claflin had a memorable role as District 4 champion Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise. In our “Game vs. Games” trivia quiz, Claflin had to answer Thrones questions, while Clarke fielded Hunger-related queries. Which actor proved to be the better fan? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Valar morghulis and may the odds be every in your favor.
