A Load of Squit

Actor Sam Caflin

Recommended Posts

Never heard of him before. This is from IMDB;English actor Sam Claflin is the son of a finance officer father and a

classroom assistant mother. As a child he was football mad often going

to see his local team Norwich City and he was a talented footballer,

playing for Norwich schools at city level and Norfolk county level.

However, he suffered 2 broken ankles and at 16 gave up thinking about a

footballing career. He took up performing arts and a teacher from

Costessey High School was impressed with his performance in a school

play, and encouraged him to take up drama. He joined the local youth

group at Norwich''s Theatre Royal and went on to gain entry to LAMDA

drama school in 2006 graduating with a 3 year acting degree in 2009. He

is the 3rd eldest of 4 boys, his older brothers Dan and Ben are not

involved in drama but his younger brother Joe Claflin commenced at the same drama school in 2009 also doing a 3 year acting degree.
