Sure, Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be bringing back the drool-worthy Johnny Depp in classic Jack Sparrow style. However, it’s a new face in the film that has us the most intrigued and we’re not talking Depp’s new leading lady Penelope Cruz. Twenty-four-year-old Brit export Sam Claflin plays Philip, a young missionary who gets stuck on Blackbeard’s ship during a mission to find the Fountain of Youth.
This hunky Englishman is best known for his role in the Brit mini-series Pillars of the Earth but has also been cast as the dreamy Prince in the upcoming fairytale remake Snow White and The Huntsmen, also starring Kristen Stewart. He’s also nabbed a role in The Seventh Son, co-starring Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and Oscar Nominee Julianne Moore, set to release in 2013. Here are your vital details on this one to watch:
Date of Birth: June 27, 1986
