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!



STX Entertainment has debuted the first trailer for survival drama Adrift, based on the true story of a sailing couple who barely survive riding through a Category 5 hurricane. Shailene Woodley & Sam Claflin star as Tami Oldham & Richard Sharp, two free-spirits who fall in love and embark on a sailboat journey.



Jamie Dornan, riding high on the $140m global debut of Fifty Shades Freed, will star opposite Sam Clafin in the IRA action thriller Borderland, which IMR International has introduced to EFM buyers here in Berlin.

Brian Kirk (Game Of Thrones, Luther) will direct the 1970s London-set feature, described as being in the vein of Michael Mann’s crime thriller Heat. CAA and UTA Independent Film Group represent US rights.

Borderland will focus on two men on opposite sides of the bloody conflict between the IRA and the British government.

When an IRA operative (Dornan) is dispatched to London to head a new unit and wreak havoc, he uses the move to hunt down the person responsible for the accidental lethal shooting of his wife – an SAS captain (Clafin) who happens to be hunting the Irishman.

Production is scheduled to kick off this summer in London and Dublin.

Ronan Bennett wrote the screenplay and producers are Chris Coen for Unanimous Entertainment, Rebecca Brown, and Alan Moloney of Parallel Film Productions.

Dornan will next be seen in Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood: Origins and recently wrapped A Private War opposite Rosamund Pike for Matthew Heineman.

Clafin recently starred in Journey’s End and Me Before You, and his credits include The Hunger Games franchise, and Their Finest. He recently completed Jennifer Kent’s psychological thriller The Nightingale, and will next be seen in Baltasar Kormákur’s drama Adrift starring alongside Shailene Woodley. [Source]



The Hunger Games grad Sam Claflin has joined Timothy Spall in the contemporary crime thriller The Corrupted from director Ron Scalpello.

Hugh Bonneville, David Hayman and Naomie Ackie are also set to star in the British indie, in which Claflin will play an ex-con determined to win back the love and trust of his family. That’s after his future was stolen from him by a crime syndicate run by Clifford Cullen (Spall), who has infiltrated the highest levels of politics, finance and police. Claflin’s character finds himself caught up in a web of conspiracy and corruption centering around a land grab just before the Olympic Games in London.

The Exchange will be selling worldwide rights to the feature at the Berlin International Film Festival later this month.

Penned by Nick Moorcroft, The Corrupted is being produced by Andrew Berg and John Sachs at Eclipse Films and James Spring at Fred Films, with Moorcroft and Meg Leonard of Powder Keg Pictures serving as executive producers.

“Sam has come into his own as a leading man with worldwide box-office appeal. This contemporary thriller is a perfect vehicle to strengthen his value for international distribution,” The Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea said Monday in a statement. [Source]



The actor on being a doting dad, working with Jennifer Lawrence and watching rubbish films

Born in Ipswich, Suffolk, Claflin, 31, grew up with three brothers in Norwich. He was a keen footballer until he broke his ankle and then turned to acting. He trained at Lamda in London and has starred in Me Before You, The Hunger Games and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. He lives in west London with his wife, the actress Laura Haddock, and their two-year-old son, Pip. They are expecting their second child.

Pip wakes us up about 6am or 7am — he’s a good sleeper and we know we’re lucky with that. One of us has to shower while the other is getting him breakfast, then it’s straight into playtime. Pip started nursery recently and thinks he knows everything. We have two toy cockapoos, Rosie and Maisie, who are also very demanding of our attention.

Breakfast might be scrambled eggs with chorizo on sourdough. I’ll usually make a big pot of coffee while Laura drinks tea. It doesn’t take me long to get ready — I basically use deodorant, that’s it. I’m just not a moisturising kind of guy. I have very basic shampoos and shower gels — it’s Laura who buys all the nice stuff. And I don’t do all that much exercise. When I can, I go for a run, but I’d rather spend that hour with Pip.

If I’m not filming, my mornings are spent catching up on what I’ve missed while away — seeing friends in London or family in Norfolk. We might go on an adventure with the little one, often to the Southbank Centre. For lunch, we have to find a restaurant that caters for children. Some days I get recognised a lot, other days not so much.

I went to drama school when I was 16 and my love for it grew. Laura also acts — she’s fantastic. There’s a confidence in her that she’s gained since she had a child. For me, acting is about making other people feel something. I’m never myself when I act: I enjoy hiding behind the characters and wearing a mask.

Sam Claflin is sipping on a peanut butter and banana smoothie in a hotel room on a Monday morning in December when he tells me to get out.

‘How can you not like peanut butter? I didn’t think that was possible,’ he exclaims as he grins at me. It’s not exactly the way I thought my short time with the British actor would go, beginning with a joke threat to kick me out of the room and then my explanation of the whys and wherefores of peanut butter hatred.

But that’s how it goes with Sam, the 31-year-old who has starred in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and romantic comedies but who can make you feel like you’ve been pals with him for years.

Dressed down and relaxed, Sam is with me to talk about his new film Journey’s End, based on the 1928 dramatic play by English playwright R. C. Sherriff.

Set in the trenches of World War I, the story gives a short glimpse into the experiences of the officers of a British Army infantry company, playing out in the officers’ dugout over four days in the run-up to the real-life events of Operation Michael.

It’s an experience not many of us would be able to connect with these days, where war no longer always means hand to hand combat and trenches but instead drone warfare and secret missions – and one that the cast, including Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield, and Tom Sturridge, tried to understand by talking to ex-servicemen who are today battling PTSD.

‘We don’t talk about war, the papers don’t talk [about war], it’s weird – there is a full-on fight going on and people are dying but no one talks about it,’ says Sam. ‘Or we do for five minutes but then go back to Kim Kardashian’s baby, its a weird disconnect.’

The ex-servicemen, says Sam, ‘came in and talked us through the challenges of having the disorder – and the way they described it is that it is us who live in the bubble and they live in the real world’.

‘For servicemen now, they are expected to fit back in the bubble but they have seen best friends dying…,’ he adds.
