Sam Claflin rose to fame in 2013 after interpreting Finnick Odair’s role in ‘Catching Fire’, the second of the films in the successful saga starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, ‘The Hunger Games’.
From then on, Claflin seized the opportunity and continued enriching his career as an actor working in countless projects like the movie ‘Before you’along with Emilia Clarke, or the successful British series‘Peaky Blinders’.
Now, the 36-year-old actor is very topical. And it is that he has just brand new his new series from Prime Video, ‘Daisy Jones and the Six’ (‘Everybody Loves Daisy Jones’).
The fiction is the adaptation of the best-seller of Taylor Jenkins Reid, ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ and tells the story of a fictional iconic band from the 70s in which the relationship of the protagonists implodes just when they were at the peak of their musical career. you can see the trailer in the video above.
Riley Keough, the granddaughter of Elvis and daughter of the late Priscilla Presleyis the one who accompanies Claflin in this new project in which both star in the roles of Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne respectively.
As is logical, both actors are very excited for the recent premiere of the series and in an interview for the GQ Hype Magazine, Claflin has spoken about how his character was prepared.
And it is that apparently his divorce in real life with his ex-wife and mother of his children, Laura Haddock“helped” him when expressing certain emotions in the series despite being one of the worst moments of their life.
“Is something horrific what I had to go through”, he confessed, referring to his divorce. “Every break it’s hard, and obviously having children makes it even more so,” ensures.
Both actors announced their separation in 2019 after six long years of marriage and two children in common: the oldest of them, Pip, 7 years old, and little Margot, 4.
“During the confinement and the Covid it cost me a lot with the children, and it helped me to mentally realize where was i in my life“, the interpreter has revealed. “Working on it, I began to reach a point where I was no longer afraid to say no to things”, he continued explaining.
“In the end those emotions they were still very recent”, confess. “But I said ‘I can take this feeling as reference point to play my character because I really lived it'”the actor finally assured before revealing that he is still “working this out in therapy.”
