Grand Opening of The Claflin Place

Welcome to The Claflin Place, a fansite dedicated to the one and only Sam Claflin. He is most known for his role as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise and his recent works include Love, Rosie, The Riot Club and The Quiet Ones (all are now available on Blu-Ray). Sam is currently working on two new projects with Gemma Arterton for the big screen adaptation of Their Finest Hour and a Half and with Emilia Clarke and Jenna Coleman on another novel-based movie Me Before You. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is set to hit the theaters on November 20, 2015.

Emily and I have been working on the site for some time now and we are so excited to finally be able to launch the site. High quality pictures from Sam’s appearances throughout the year and screencaptures of his works can be viewed in our gallery, currently holding almost 15,000 photos. We are still working on adding a few things here and there but feel free to browse around the site. Please let us know of any errors when you are at it but most importantly, enjoy!

Sam Claflin Eyed to Star in ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

Sam Claflin is being eyed for one of the starring roles in “Star Wars: Rogue One,” while Riz Ahmed is in talks to join the cast as well, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Disney and the actors’ reps had no comment.

Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn are set to star in “Rogue One,” which was recently revealed to be a heist actioner involving a group of resistance fighters who unite to steal the plans to the Death Star.

Gareth Edwards is directing the film, which will take place between the events of Episode III, “Revenge of the Sith,” and the original “Star Wars” film, “A New Hope.”

While Claflin does not have the role yet, he is the frontrunner for one of the ensemble roles. He has a lot of experience as a supporting player in blockbusters ranging from “Snow White and the Huntsman” to “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “The Hunger Games,” but he is being eyed for a more substantial role in “Rogue One.”

“Star Wars: Rogue One” will be released Dec. 16, 2016.

Claflin and Ahmed, best known for “Four Lions” and “Nightcrawler,” are both repped by CAA.
