Sam Claflin

He’s been dubbed one of the UK Stars of Tomorrow, but this tipped star has already been tapped and swept onto the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. In this fourth film of the blockbuster series, Sam Claflin, 24, is cast as Philip, a youthful missionary.

The British actor graduated from the three year acting course at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in 2009. In his third year at LAMDA, Sam landed the part of Richard on The Pillars of the Earth, an adaptation of Ken Follett’s bestselling book. Other big-name actors of the cast included Ian McShane, who is also part of Pirates 4, and Hayley Atwell (The Duchess). The television mini-series is set to screen on UK’s Channel 4 in the autumn.

From there, Sam sailed right over to the set of The Lost Future, Syfy Channel’s post-apocalyptic telefilm, in which he played the character Kaleb. Then he joined the all-star cast of Any Human Heart, an adaptation of William Boyd’s historical novel, in which the life of fictional writer Logan Mountstuart unfolds in a four-part drama. Stars of the cast include Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City) and Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter). The series is set to broadcast on Channel 4 later this year.

The biggest news surrounding this hot, upcoming actor is definitely aboard his current film set. Sam Claflin has been called “the Orlando Bloom of Pirates 4.” Filming has already begun with Sam and the rest of the cast currently on location in Hawaii. Other set locations include the UK and Los Angeles. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tales is set to release in May 2011.
