ME BEFORE YOU: Sam Claflin talks his toughest role yet

ME BEFORE YOU star Sam Claflin tells Entertainment Weekly that Will has been his toughest role yet.

Sam Claflin, star of upcoming film Me Before You, sat down for an interview with EW. In the interview he talks about how his role as Will has been one of his toughest roles yet, and gives us a taste of what we can expect from the movie.

“Me Before You is a film that follows a young woman from a small village — she finds a job opening at a castle, working for a quadriplegic man confined to a wheelchair. The two of them… I suppose, compliment one another just by being so different.”

The star of The Hunger Games also expressed that the role has been one of his most challenging roles. Throughout filming, Sam learned extensively from individuals who shared their stories in order to better himself in the role.

“I think playing Will was undoubtedly probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my life. I honestly was an emotional wreck pretty much the entirety of the film.”

Me Before You

Young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will’s cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.
