Hello and welcome to Sam Claflin Source, a fansite dedicated to the very talented actor Sam Claflin and his fans. We aim to bring you all the latest news, photos and information on Sam. Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again very soon!



Directed by Saul Dibb, Journey’s End is a WWI drama based on the play of the same name based by R.C. Sherriff. In the exclusive clip, we see Sam Claflin as a war-weary Captain Stanhope, leading men into battle. The film also stars Asa Butterfield, Toby Jones, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge, and Paul Bettany.

Set during 1918, Stanhope leads the C-Company to the front-line trenches of northern France. With a German offensive imminently approaching, the officers (Bettany, Graham, Sturridge) and their cook (Jones) use food and the memories of their lives before the war to distract themselves, while Stanhope soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young officer, Raleigh (Butterfield), arrives fresh out of training and is excited about his first posting – not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections.

Journey’s End was adapted by screenwriter Simon Reade and produced by Guy de Beaujeu and Simon Reade. It makes its World Premiere in the Special Presentations section at TIFF on September 14. [Source]

English actor Sam Claflin has starred in some of the biggest movie franchises of recent times – he was in The Hunger Games series, Snow White And The Huntsman and its sequel as well as Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

But starring in the new dark romance My Cousin Rachel gave the 30-year-old the opportunity to embrace a role unlike any other he has tackled and shine in a smaller passion project.

Opening here tomorrow, My Cousin Rachel is based on the classic Daphne du Maurier novel of the same name and directed by Roger Michell.

For Claflin, it marks a new chapter in an already illustrious career. It was, he said, a huge challenge – and he loved every minute of working with “a great director, a fantastic script and a wonderful cast”.

He said: “I also loved the idea of playing this character who thinks he is a man but in many ways is still a boy. We often see the story of a boy who becomes a man, but this is more a man who turns into a boy, and I enjoyed that transition.”

My Cousin Rachel tells the story of Philip (Claflin), who plots revenge against the mysterious and beautiful titular woman (Rachel Weisz), believing she murdered his cousin-guardian (Claflin in a dual role) after marrying the latter in order to inherit his estate.

It’s strange, perhaps, to hear an actor express gratitude for a character not being complex. It’s usually the opposite: you’ll hear about how much depth was offered, how much there was to explore.

But Roger Michell’s new adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier classic My Cousin Rachel presented star Sam Claflin with something else entirely: the enticement of a character utterly straightforward, yet in the most fascinating way.

“The thing that really drew me to him was the fact that he’s actually quite simple and two-dimensional,” he admits to me. “He’s like a child, you know? In the sense that he says what he wants and he’s so used to getting it. If he doesn’t get it, he has a hissy fit. And I think that was quite unique, playing an adult-child, it was quite different and a departure.”

Indeed, Claflin has largely crafted a career fit for the dashing male lead: in his breakout roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Hunger Games series, or as a romantic interest for Me Before You and Their Finest. On paper, a period drama like My Cousin Rachel would seem to offer more of the same, but Daphne du Maurier was no conventional novelist.

Claflin’s Philip goes from headstrong, dedicated bachelor to fawning puppy in a mere gaze directed at the bewitching Rachel (Rachel Weisz), the widow of his own guardian and cousin, Ambrose, who died in such mysterious circumstances in Italy. In short: he’s not too difficult to figure out.

“I’ve spent my entire career thus far begging to get more complex and three-dimensional characters, with lots more layers, but I quite enjoyed the boyish charm of him,” Claflin adds. “The kind of impetuous nature of his personality. It was incredibly enjoyable and fun to explore that.”

The key to his personality, inevitably, is in Philip’s childhood as an orphan brought up in a strictly masculine environment. As Claflin explains, “He’s never grown up with a woman’s touch at all, to the point that we discussed his backstory, and that he never really had a girlfriend. He’s a virgin. He has Louise [played by Holliday Grainger], who’s a friend, but someone who he’s grown up with so he sees her more as a sister figure.”
