Sam Claflin and his fellow Riot Club cast mates and heartthrobs are on the press brigade promoting their latest film The Riot Club all over town and we have some HAWT pictures and interviews snippets to share with you thanks to that! Check them all out below!

An interview with Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, and Max Irons from the Toronto International Film Festival is featured in MR. Porter’s ‘The Journal’ along with the above and below beautiful pics!

This trio of bright young things – Messrs Claflin and Irons are both 28 and Mr Booth is the baby of the bunch at 22 – have collected a few major roles between them. Mr Irons starred in The Host, Mr Claflin appeared in blockbuster franchises The Hunger Games and Pirates of the Caribbean, and Mr Booth recently had to repopulate the world with Ms Emma Watson in the Biblical epic Noah. Sam and Max Irons chatted with Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2 about The Riot Club, this September 17

You guys seem to have great chemistry. Did this help when making the movie?
MR CLAFLIN: Of course, it helps that we don’t hate each other. But you can’t fail to have that when you’ve worked together for as long as we did.
MR BOOTH: Before we started we went paintballing together, went out for dinner, that sort of thing. It was all about developing what the members of the Riot Club might call “banter”.
MR IRONS: When we wrapped, we understood that we’d never have that sort of thing again – that we’d never be part of such an amazing ensemble cast. And I speak for the larger group when I say that – there are 10 of us in total.

Talk me through your characters.
MR CLAFLIN: My character, Alistair Ryle, is the brother of an ex-president of the Riot Club. He’s a young man who has always lived in his brother’s shadow.
MR IRONS: Mine, Miles, isn’t from the same background as the others and becomes hypnotized by the idea of being at the top table.
MR BOOTH: And Harry, who I play, is a more senior member. He’s a young man with a title and the keys to an old country pile waiting for him when he graduates. He already has his whole life planned out for him – fixing leaky ceilings, ushering tourists through his living room etc – and as a result he sees this as the only time in his life when he’s able to cut loose.

It sounds like they aren’t all bad, then.
MR BOOTH: These are all guys who, on their own, would be the most charming people in the world. The 11th member of the Riot Club is the club itself. It engenders a pack mentality in all these impressionable young minds.

This film pokes fun at the British establishment. Is this going to be immediately obvious to an international audience?
MR CLAFLIN: A North American audience might find it easy to compare it to something like the Skull and Bones at Yale…
MR IRONS: …but what this film does give people, no matter where they’re from, is a glimpse of a totally different culture. One that’s as alien to us as it is to anybody. It touches on things that aren’t specific to Britain, too – privilege, wealth, elitism.

Toronto has a reputation as a launch pad for movies that go on to do well during awards season. Do you have high hopes?
MR CLAFLIN: No matter how well or badly this does, it is something that we’re all really proud of. A lovely cast and a wonderful director who worked miracles keeping on top of us all.

Sam Claflin on Finnick as a ‘damaged’ and ‘broken man’

Sam Claflin has been doing press for his upcoming film The Riot Club. In an interview with The Guardian, Sam discusses the effects of politics on his character Finnick in The Hunger Games.

Claflin appreciates how the franchise has made politics accessible to its audience, but he is “not in any way overly political” and those themes are not what attracted him. Surely, though, their politics must give him more to chew on than if the films were mere action fantasy? “Yeah, it gives a real depth to every character,” he agrees, and talks of Finnick’s distressing fortunes in the third Hunger Games instalment, Mockingjay: Part 1, which is out in November. “My character especially has been so damaged by the political system and by power that he’s a broken man. The power of the president basically ruined Finnick.”

Read the full interview here.

He spoke with Digital Spy, and answered fan-submitted questions!

Sam also stopped by Soccer AM to chat, and you can catch the video here.

The Hunger Games Exclusive Issue #2: Katniss Takes Aim

Issue #2

The Hunger Games Exclusive has released their 2nd promotional issue for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. And now I am in Hunger Games overload! Since there’s so much Mockingjay goodness, I’m splitting this into 3 posts. This first one covers the section “Katniss Takes Aim,” which involved an interview with Jennifer Lawrence and some pretty amazing promotional images.

Jennifer Lawrence on becoming the Mockingjay

Here’s a snippet of this first section:

“At this point, does she really have a choice?” asks Jennifer Lawrence. “It’s not just about saving the people she loves now.”

In a span of seconds, the actress shows disbelief, regret, and then anger—almost every stage of grief by acceptance. When someone yells, “Cut!” Lawrence sheds the emotions as easily as a cardigan. “Jennifer captures the strength in silence, which is a big part of Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence.

Sam Claflin featured in GQ Style’s Autumn/Winter Issue

Sam Claflin is featured in GQ Style’s Autumn /Winter issue where he was photographed by Matthew Brooks. Here are scans from the features and an excerpt from the article.

Sam Claflin makes a good David Bailey. And it’s not the ease with which he wields a Nikon. Charming and soft, he’s nothing like the famously abrasive photographer but there’s something similarly untutored about him despite the years at LAMDA, a refreshing absence of that paid-for actorly pholish that benefits a state school boy from Norwich doing well in a industry dominated by the expensively educated.
Not that he’s got much time to spend on the viewfinder side of the camera so busy is he being the object of its gaze. In short order, this autumn he has major roles in three films: September’s The Riot Club (for which he shares the high expectations of co-star Max Irons), October’s rom-com Love, Rosie, and then, in November, the real pulse-quickener, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One, about which this interviewer is not alone in being preposterously excited.
This kind of fan fervour is something he’s accustomed to now, but he hadn’t realised the depth of feeling around The Hunger Games until the backlash started when he was cast in 2012 as trident-wielding hunk Finnick Odair.
“I wasn’t in the right shape for Finnick for the audition. I had stubble and there was a picture of me at a premiere and everyone was like: who is this guy? He doesn’t even have blue eyes, let alone copper-coloured hair, a tan or a six pack.”
But he won the fans over thanks to a restricted diet of egg-white omelettes and porridge, and a brutal training regime: “Three hours a day, five days a week for four months.” That and his impressive performance, which I realise from our conversation, is an exemplar of the technical complexity of acting in big-budget blockbusters. As well as staying in his Americal accent and bearing the emotion of the scene, he had to develop a kind of muscle memory for the intricately mapped out actions sequences all “without hitting someone with the trident.”
