Sam Claflin grins as he strikes a pose on the blue carpet at the Giffoni Film Festival on Thursday (July 21) in Salerno, Italy.
The 30-year-old English actor’s latest film, Me Before You, premiered at the festival and will hit Italian theaters on September 1.
Before receiving the Giffoni Experience Award at the event, Sam offered some advice to the audience.
“We must think of our choices as opportunities,” he told the crowd. “My mom says that when I played football I was too dramatic to become a professional, and she was right. You must follow your dreams without caring [about] criticism or what other people think of you”.
Sam was spotted hugging excited fans and even posted a selfie with them.
“Crazy scenes, but thank everyone, from the bottom of my heart for one of the most amazing experiences today,” he captioned the Instagram pic below. “I am honoured and privileged to have been a part of something so special. … To everyone who travelled far, and to all of those of you who camped out, bless you. Thank you. You make me me. And you make me happy.
