Even if you’ve been watching all the nonstop coverage of Snow White and the Huntsman, you’d be forgiven for still wondering about that handsome Brit who keeps appearing alongside Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. Your new fairytale prince is Sam Claflin, a 25-year-old U.K. native who’s fairly new to the big screen, but will definitely be making a reappearance. Prior to his role as William in Snow White, Sam’s first big movie break came when he was cast as Phillip Swift in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Across the pond, Sam has already made quite a name for himself after appearing on two award-winning British TV series, The Pillars of the Earth and Any Human Heart in 2010.
Sam’s now the new boy on the Hollywood block and definitely catching everyone’s eye. We can’t help but fall in love with him. Sam is a gentleman, charming, sweet, a terrific actor, and well … pretty darn beautiful. We’ll have to keep our admiration from a distance, though, as Sammy’s taken. He’s engaged to English actress Laura Haddock whom he brought to the London premiere of Snow White. Check out the video above, in which Sam so eloquently describes to our own Kate Spencer what beauty is to him, working in a loving reference to Laura.
If you’re not convinced just how charming he is, browse through this painstakingly created Sam Claflin gallery (it was a tough job, but someone had to do it!).
