on his snow white character
"It's quite a dark telling of the story, to be able to play the prince not necessarily how everyone expects is kind of quite a treat. There's a definite sort of darker side to my sort of character."

Here at Digital Spy
, we're a little bit excited about BBC Two's brand new drama White Heat
! The show focuses on seven students living in a house together in the 1960s... then follows them as they grow up!
We'll be bringing you chats with the cast every day until the show airs, and first up are the lovelyClaire Foy
and Sam Claflin
, who spoke to reporters when we visited them on set. Read on to find out what they had to say!Sam, is that your hair? It looks a bit Kevin Keegan!Sam:
"I wish it was mine! You're definitely not the first person to say that. It's of the time, I'm told. It's a weft. I had no idea what a weft was before we started - it's become the bane of my life now! They're basically like clip-on things but they glue them to my hair or my head... I feel like such a diva sitting there having all my make up and hair done! But I'm not the only one, so no complaints."

If you remember the Sixties, the old joke goes, then you weren't there. Writer Paula Milne was there and she has harnessed her powers of recollection for an epic new BBC2 drama that not only spans the Sixties, but the Seventies and Eighties as well. White Heat follows a group of students thrown together in a London flat-share in 1965, and it's already been dubbed "Our Friends in the South" – a comparison with Peter Flannery's 1996 series Our Friends in the North that Milne (The Politician's Wife, Small Island) believes is not quite on the mark.
[...]"I didn't want it to be just a group of London students... I wanted to have this mix, but at the same time why would they be together?" asks Milne. Her solution was to turn this particular house-share into a deliberate social experiment engineered by student landlord Jack (Sam Claflin). A radicalised MP's son whose father bought the house, Jack gets to make up the house rules, including a ban on monogamy, that reflect the free love (or "contingent relationships" – Jack is keen on his Sartre and De Beauvoir) spirit of the time. "I went to art college and there was quite a lot of that," says Milne, "particularly the rule about not sleeping with anyone for more than three consecutive nights. There was a sense of 'let's run this differently'."
The six hour-long episodes are set respectively in 1965, 1967, 1972, 1979, 1982 and 1990, taking in anti-Vietnam War protests, IRA bombs, industrial unrest, the Falklands War, Aids and Thatcher. The mix of the personal and the political is framed by a flash-forward to the present day, in which their old house is being revisited by the former friends after one of their number dies and makes them the executors of his or her will.
The survivors haven't seen each other in 20 years ("something cataclysmic happens in 1990," says Milne), and the identity of the dead character is withheld until the final episode, although from the opening episode it clearly isn't the feminist Charlotte (played in the present day by Juliet Stevenson) or former art student Lilly (Lindsay Duncan), who are the first to arrive. The younger versions of Charlotte and Lilly are played by Claire Foy (Little Dorrit, The Promise) and MyAnna Buring (The Twilight Saga); they're joined by Claflin
, Lee Ingleby (Being Human), David Gyasi, Reece Ritchie and Jessica Gunning."Getting the right cast was crucial," says Milne. "They must age from 18 to their early 40s and they have to have the maturity to actually get into the mind-set of somebody in their thirties facing childlessness, or whatever. We cover seven time frames... and they all say they are lucky to play such parts. Me, I think we are lucky to have them."

When the cast of White Heat
come together for our shoot, it feels, for a moment, like seeing the 1980s Brat Pack - Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Molly Ringwald and co - posing for a poster for their latest cult comedy. In other words, this is a cast that's going places. Sam Claflin has been on a roll sincePirates of the Caribbean
; Claire Foy's screen-burning intensity in Channel 4's The Promise was one of the performances of 2011, building on her breakthrough role as Little Dorrit
; Reece Ritchie shone in Prince of Persia
; while Swedish-born MyAnna Buring has a legion of obsessive fans after joining The Twilight Saga
feels like the show that will bounce them all into full-intensity red-carpet stardom, much as the outrageously successful Our Friends in the North
did for Christopher Eccleston, Daniel Craig, Gina McKee and Mark Strong in the 1990s, andState of Play
did for so many in the 2000s. The drama is an intimate yet epic BBC Two thriller from writer Paula Milne, of The Politician's Wife
and Small Island
fame. Milne dripped her own life into the ambitious script, which follows the lives of seven friends from 1965 to the present, starting out as flat-share students in London and ending sprawled in the wreckage of love, loss, drugs and politics 40 years later. Imagine following the cast of Fresh Meat
over the next four decades. The actors all say they're lucky to play complex characters over decades of adventure; Milne says, 'Me, I think we are lucky to have them.'Claflin plays prime mover Jack, the rebel with a cause who just happens to be rich enough to own a large house in Tufnell Park, which he lets out to new students he finds interesting. He interviews hundreds, saying he's planning an ambitious social experiment forged in 1960s' idealism to create a perfectly formed commune where everything, even sexual partners, is shared. 'You have to feel sorry for him,' Claflin grins. 'He starts off like a freedom fighter and ends up as everything he hates. He recruits like he's got a list of stereotypes: the Asian gay guy, the black guy, the techie, the feminist… One from each group to see what happens. You'd expect it to go wrong, of course, but actually the flat share is the best bit for him.'

"Snow White And The Huntsman
" (dir. Rupert
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris
Again, Cannes is no stranger to hosting blockbusters and
the last two years have seen summer movies “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On
” and “Robin Hood
” unspool in the south
of France. Will “Snow White And The Huntsman” fill that slot this year? With the
film set to open on June 1st (just a few days after Cannes closes) the timing
seems right, and a splashy premiere would be a nice final topping on what is
already a steady publicity machine behind the pic.
Thanks KStewAngel & JossMed!
Jack is a rebel seeking a cause. A kind of latter day Jack Kerouac, iconoclastic, idealistic and dangerously charismatic. There is a restless rage in him, born, he claims from social injustice he sees all around him but he is also propelled by unresolved demons of a more personal nature.
Born into privilege Jack feels he is part of an antiquated class system which is synonymous with oppression and inequality. He prefers Che Guevara to Churchill any day. Jack is like a magnet which attracts disaster and intense passion in equal measures.
Jack carries the political heart of the drama and is pivotal to the destiny of all the characters – particularly Lilly and Charlotte.

Well butts, this is it: the last in my series of posts about myawesome, nay, EPICinterviews
with the incredible (and unfairly good-looking) cast of Snow White and the Huntsman.
I have been keeping this one in my sweaty back pocket, because, in some ways, it is the one nearest and dearest to my heart:Sam Claflin
is the very first celebrity I met on set (and aside from Dan Bergstein, the very first celebrity I met, ever
), which in itself would have been enough to earn him a spot on my forthcoming reality show, "Famous Hawt Dudes Compete Shirtless for Chelsea Dagger's Hand in Marriage"—but then he went and swaggered into my life wearing LEATHER PANTS.LEATHER.PANTS.
So basically, I imprinted on him (YES, JUST LIKE IN TWILIGHT
) and now we're fated to be forever-buddies and the dress code at our wedding ceremony will require that you purchase a sombrero and a glitter gun, so you should start prepping accordingly.
NOW THEN, let me give you all the delicious deets of our first meeting. Myself and the other bloggers arrived on the gorgeous forest set and were taken to a cozy trailer to wait for our first interview. I was out of my mind with nervousness, and also exceptionally cold, because I'd decided to wear my "I am a fancy professional who is definitely not about to barf on herself!" jacket, despite the fact that it was 35 degrees and raining. My teeth were chattering, I wasn't entirely sure how to turn on my recorder, and I suddenly couldn't remember how to pronounce the word "Hello" (are the l's silent?). But when Sam Claflin stepped into the trailer, wearing a Faramir-esque knee-length coat and the aforementioned LEATHER PANTS, his face lit up by a giant, genuine grin, none of that mattered. Being in the same room as Sam Claflin is a lot like getting accepted into Hogwarts: you are all at once filled with uncontrollable giddiness, and all of your worries melt away, and you can also transform teapots into baby pandas just by blinking (I did this 3 times by accident during the interview, but no one noticed, obviously, because LEATHER. PANTS.)
