Sam Claflin: Meeting wife was mind blowing!


The 28-year-old star is married to Laura Haddock, who he tied the knot with last year. It was never a case of blowing hot and cold and playing games for the two. "Even better; I married her!" he grinned to German magazine Jolie when asked if he's met the love of his life yet. "We never had to chase each other and felt the same things at the same time. We met at a casting and it was like an explosion."

‘We never had to chase each other and felt the same things at the same time'

Sam admits his agent found his reaction a bit over the top. But it was clear Laura (29) felt the same way, because she'd been equally as gushing about the handsome Riot Club actor.

And fate seemed to bring the pair together.

"The next day, at 5 o'clock, I was taking the tube home in London," the Brit continued.

"When it got to my station, the doors opened and she was standing there. We both stammered something like, 'Oh, it's nice to see you again.'"

In his latest movie, Love, Rosie, Sam explores the subject of true love alongside co-star Lily Collins. Luckily the pair got along famously and didn't have to fake any onscreen chemistry.

"The best thing was that I got to be myself a lot on set," Lily (25) explained at the premiere of the film. "I guess just the way that I laugh, the way that I fooled around with Sam and made him laugh were very me. The goofy factor really, so all that kind of stuff.
