Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin: “Me Before You”

Adapted from Jojo Moyes’ romantic novel of the same name, Me Before You tells of the budding love story between a young caretaker and the paraplegic man in her care. On a lark, Louise (Emilia Clarke) takes the job as companion to Will (Sam Claflin) who has been paralyzed in a motorcycle accident. She has no previous experience but her endearing attitude ends up breaking through the cynicism and depression Will has retreated to. The HFPA’s Mario Amaya and Scott Orlin spoke to Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Claflin (Hunger Games) about the film and the chemistry between them.
