Sam Claflin Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Interview Video

Sam Claflin gets a fast start on building up a fan base by starring opposite Johnny Depp in the fourth Pirates film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. When Claflin got the call saying he had a shot at auditioning for On Stranger Tides, he'd just graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. 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. At the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Claflin talked about being on a Pirates set, working with Johnny Depp, and nabbing the role Snow White and the Huntsman.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Sam Claflin, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane, and Astrid Berges-Frisbey, and is set to hit theaters on May 20, 2011.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Plot:

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past.
