ODE – Sam Claflin says he had a tough job keeping a straight face acting opposite Emilia Clarke in Me Before You. Report by Melissa Nathoo.
COSMOPOLITAN – In an adorable round of rapid-fire questions, Emilia Clarke asks her Me Before You co-star Sam Claflin all the important questions. If you’ve ever wondered about his favorites (city, food, hobby, romantic movie), you’ve come to the right place. If you needed even more reason to love the guy, you’ve come to the right place. As Sam says in the sweet clip, he can’t live without pizza, aka the best food in the world. In fact, it turns out Sam and I are very much alike since I also love chocolate and the words of Richard Curtis (who wrote our favorite rom-com). Unfortunately, we both don’t agree on New York City being the best but I’m sure one of us will work on that.
Get to know Sam a little bit better, above. Me Before You opens June 3. Don’t forget the tissues.

EW.COM – If the heartstring-tugging trailer for Me Before You made you reach for the tissues, you weren’t the only one.
In the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ beloved novel, Sam Claflin plays Will, a dour businessman paralyzed after an accident who falls for his cheery caretaker, Lou (Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke). Sitting down with EW to talk about Me Before You, Claflin revealed that tapping into his tear-jerking role took an emotional toll on him.
“I think playing Will was undoubtedly probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my life,” he told EW. “I honestly was an emotional wreck pretty much the entirety of the film.”
