Sam Claflin

Actor Sam Claflin was born on June 27, 1986 in Norwich in northeastern England and grew up wanting to be a football player. An ankle injury forced him to quit the sport and he turned his attention to acting. After getting a role in "Jesus Christ Superstar," Claflin decided to concentrate on acting. After graduating from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, Claflin got his first big break by being cast as one of the main characters in 2011's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

Exclusive Interview with Sam Claflin

A starring role as a young missionary named Philip who gets mixed up with Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) has put him on the radar of Hollywood filmmakers, and he'll next be seen in "Snow White and the Huntsman" with "Twilight's "Kristen Stewart.
