Sam Clafin’s Talks ‘The Quiet Ones,’ Career Hopes and More with HeyUGuys

April 10, 2014 | No Comments »
Posted by in Sam Claflin

normal_hq_281929~14

Here is another interview Sam Claflin did for his new movie The Quiet Ones, this one is with HeyUGuys! He talks about the film, whether he is recognized much in public, and his career hopes. Read a bit below!

Going onto your career at the moment, which is seeing some big progress, you were nominated for Best Male Newcomer at the Empire Awards a few years ago, and in 2012 at the Teen Choice Awards you were nominated as well for Best Breakout Star. But Catching Fire last year has obviously been your biggest moment so far; do you get stopped in the street? Do you get recognised in places?

Well, it’s something that’s quite important to me and The Quiet Ones is the first sort of real difference in my physical appearance, if you know what I mean; what I try to do with each film is trying to go through as some sort of transformation, morph into somebody else, and I think that it’s important for every actor to really kind of find a new identity – not to completely change as a person, but I just mean physically to alter yourself in some way. ‘Cause not every character looks the same, you know, especially if someone’s… I think drama school’s the introduction to that. It’s like, I’m playing an eighty year-old today and I’m playing a sixteen year-old tomorrow. But there’s no way you should look the same, so physically you try to change yourself. And I think I’ve been lucky with wigs and all sorts of make-up that I’ve looked very different from part to part. I’d say at present, ’cause we’re currently filming Mockinjay, and I’m sort of physically very similar to how I was in Catching Fire. For the people that have seen Catching Fire, potentially might notice me – but I think I keep my head down (laughs) and try not to think about it. But nothing’s drastically changed, I’d say.

Is it mentally taxing at all to go from one, not one extreme, but one very different physical appearance to another?

Erm, again I don’t whether due to drama school I felt like I was constantly changing day-to-day; I personally find it quite easy to morph into something else. But you know, I imagine some people would struggle with that, but I enjoy finding the new physicality of a character – it’s something that I’ve sort of embraced. Ever since I was a kid, I used to do impressions and try to be someone else, and you do that from literally five second to five second periods. So yeah, I never really overly struggle, I don’t think.

Going back to your character Brian in The Quiet Ones, he is a very reserved character. Is he closer to you what you think you are in real life, or is there a character you’ve played in a movie so far that you feel you have an affinity with?

Yeah, I did a romantic comedy last year. The thing that I can never really relate to in a character that’s set in the past [The Quiet Ones is set in 1974], I’ve never lived that world. I wouldn’t know right from wrong back then, or I wouldn’t know how to use a camera. I literally had to spend weeks kind of learning how to use a camera set in the seventies, and how to edit film and stuff like that. So that was quite a stretch, in that sense, despite the fact that there were similarities between our personalities – at the same time, I think he’s made a few choices that I personally wouldn’t agree with. There was a romantic comedy that I did last year that was set in the here and now [Rosie], and it’s the first time I’ve ever done it and I definitely had a lot of fun doing it playing myself, quite literally; I had my own accent, my own haircut, my own hair colour for a change. I invested in that a lot, and found that very easy, you know, get lost in if you know what I mean.

You’re obviously still a very young actor; is there anything, or something in particular you’d like to achieve maybe before a certain age?

I mean, I think every actor would like to be recognised… with an Oscar (laughs). As someone who people are interested in working with. I think for me, what’s important is the world, especially people within the industry, recognise that I am not a one-trick pony, and I have a lot more to give. It’s been one of those things that I’ve found difficult to kind of get into, you know; it’s difficult because a lot of directors think that I’m just a romantic lead, you know. I don’t consider myself an attractive guy, and someone who should be playing that, you know; I think there’s a lot more to me that meets the eye. I’d like the opportunity to kind of prove that, and I definitely feel I’m getting to that point, having done not only The Quiet Ones which is very different to anything I’ve done before, and then a romantic comedy, to then doing a film called Posh which is like a sort of black comedy stroke drama. I mean it’s not funny, but I think as an outsider of that world that they live in is quite hilarious. I’ve had the opportunity to explore different elements of my character, my personal character, and I hope that the world relates to that and sees that. I’d like to just play more interesting, complex characters and challenge myself in different ways, basically. And I’d like to start tomorrow (laughs).

Q&A with Sam Claflin on Our Finnick’s Latest film, ‘The Quiet Ones’

Sam Claflin’s latest flick with Lionsgate The Quiet Ones premiered in the UK recently with an end of the month release date for the US, and he made all his fun interview rounds in his home country recently to talk about the horror flick and more!

Q&A with Norwich Evening News:

The Quiet Ones was actually shot in summer which must have made it difficult to capture the gloomy atmosphere and tense scenes during filming?
It was just tough having to look at all the other guys’ scared faces all day every day [laughs]. Every time you turned around, you’d catch someone else’s eye as they were pulling [their scared faces] and you try not to laugh. Then you’d have the director vocalising the sound effects, so that in itself was quite hilarious.

Last year you married British actress Laura Haddock [best-known for her role in The Inbetweeners Movie]. Can we expect to see you united on screen?
We’re huge supporters of each other’s work and we constantly help each other learn lines, and with auditions. Even if I’m across the world, we’ll go over lines on Skype. We’re hugely supportive and that’s our dream [to work together]. That’s how we met, at an audition room, and we’re trying to find the right thing.

Are you surprised by the level of success you’ve had so quickly?
It’s still something I’m trying to let sink in. Everything has happened so quickly, I haven’t had the chance to sit down and go, ‘Wow. What’s just happened?’

What can you tell us about growing up in Norwich?
We [he has four brothers] had, not a tough upbringing and by no means should my parents take offence to this, but a very middle of the road [upbringing]. I had very average grades at school. It felt like we were blessed in many ways but at the same time we never had huge amounts of privilege or money, but it’s one of those things where now I feel very, very blessed. My parents keep bringing me back down to earth, in a good way.

They [classroom assistant mum, Sue, and accountant dad, Mark] must be proud?
At every premiere I invite her to, my mum asks ‘Are you sure you’re not going to be embarrassed by us? Shall I wear this?’. I say, ‘Mum, it doesn’t matter. Just be yourself’. They don’t know how proud I am of them, as much as they keep reminding me how proud they are of me.

You’re a die-hard Norwich City fan. Did you dream of pulling on a Canaries shirt professionally?
I don’t think I was ever that good. My favourite moment in football is Delia Smith [in 2005, taking to the pitch and rallying the crowd] going ‘Let’s be having you!’ What a hero.

Interview with Bleeding Cool:

Do you believe in the supernatural?

I wouldn’t say I’m a non-believer but I’m open to it. I’ve never had any experience with it and I know very few people who have, but you know, I’m sure it does happen. You can only believe people that tell you as opposed to saying they’re stupid and they’re seeing things, it makes them sound crazy, and sometimes as a friend you don’t want to… (laughs). But yeah, I’d like to believe there is life after death and that these things exist but yeah, who knows?

What attracted you to this particular script?

I think the fact that it was a horror film and that I enjoyed my character’s journey through the film and liked that he’s a non-believer. It’s very similar to how I look at life: I don’t believe until I witness it. I think the film itself was quite special. The characters seemed quite rooted and grounded, every character is believable, which sometimes horror films don’t tend to be. But also the fact that it had it’s ties with Hammer horror, that really drew me to the project. The fact that it was set in the 70s as well, I really enjoyed the interesting haircuts!

Do you have a favourite horror film?

The Blair Witch Project remains one of my favourite films. It was the first horror movie that I watched that really made me believe that there was something out there. I remember the advertising campaign they did which was just a missing poster with those three characters and when I saw the footage it felt like something brand new. There were no credits. I was really worried that those three people really were dead!

Was it a conscious decision, maybe to avoid being type cast, choosing projects that are so different from Hunger Games?

I like new challenges and I like to push the boundaries and it’s the first year of being able to express myself to the world that I can do more than one thing. As much as I’ve played he handsome lover guy in things like Pirates of the Caribbean and Snow White and to an extent in Hunger Games, I don’t consider myself a pretty boy and I don’t see myself as that nice of a guy (laughs). Well, I think I am a nice guy but I think there’s a darker side to me and I think POSH definitely allowed that side of me to come out like The Quiet Ones allowed a different side of me to come out.

I think this is the first time I’ve felt that I’m really changing. I find big budget franchise movies have a tendency to miss over the characters sometimes. I think the Hunger Games has really nurtured that hugely, but what’s great about these intimate pieces and very character driven pieces is that you really get an understanding of the characters and they feel more believable, three-dimensional. But like I say, Hunger Games has really got everything down I think.

What’s coming up next for you?

I’m currently working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 shooting back-to-back so that’s keeping me very busy. I’m hugely excited by people seeing the character’s journeys grow throughout the books and the films.

The next film I have coming out after The Quiet Ones is called Love Rosie which is a romantic comedy, well, a romantic dramedy – it’s mainly dramatic. I remember the director telling me that it was a comedy and when when I was trying to explain the story to someone else I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is really dark, it’s not that funny!’ But it is, it has its comedy moments, which is great, but again very different to everything else so it’s a very mixed year this year, it’s going to be very exciting.
