Great interview: Sam Claflin talks about Kristen "She is THE movie star..."

You have 'Snow White and the Huntsmen,' (opposite Kristen Stewart) how did that come about?
Well, I auditioned for it a while ago, but it just became sort of official like not yesterday, but the day before. I found out a while ago but the offer was there and I'm, you know, very excited about getting sort of my teeth stuck into something new as well.

What about actresses that you've screen tested with?
I've screen tested with Amanda Seyfried during 'Red Riding Hood.' And Astrid, and I think, that's it, really.

You didn't with Kristen for 'Snow White'?
No. No. I didn't. Unfortunately not.


Have you met her?
No. I'm excited to because I'm a big fan of hers.

(I'm genuinely shocked. Can you tell?) That's crazy that they cast and you guys haven't even met each other.
It's a bit crazy.

It says good things that they think highly enough of you to hire you without basically doing a chemistry test.
Yeah,I trust the director's judgment. I mean, he seems like a genius to me,  so I think he knows what he's doing. I hope he knows what he's doing. But I've heard such amazing thing about Kristin. I have a feeling that there's no way that we wouldn't get on, you know, I'd like to think like that anyway. But she's apparently rumored to be actually amazing. I have a few friends who know her personally and one friend who did 'The Yellow Handkerchief' with her, so not a bad word said, so.

His friend who worked with Kristen on 'The Yellow Handkerchief is Eddie Redmayne, who was ALSO in 'The Pillars of the Earth.'

I used to work with her dad.

Yeah, so I saw her a bit when she was little, around 12 or so, yeah. And she went from being a child actor and kid's movies (like 'Catch That Kid') to where she is now.
She is THE movie star pretty much of the minute and she's incredible as well. I mean, I just recently watched 'The Runaways' and also I love her in 'Into The Wild' as well as, you know, obviously, 'The Twilight Saga' but I'm very, very excited.
