Sam Claflin answered fan questions Monday on Twitter ahead of the release of Me Before You, a romance film in which he plays a recently-paralyzed man, William Traynor, who falls in love with his caretaker, Louisa Clark (Emilia Clarke). Below are highlights from his Q&A, including his habit of trying to get Game of Thrones spoilers out of Clarke, how his experience playing Will compares to that of playing The Hunger Games series’ Finnick Odair, and his love of bumblebee tights (just like Lou).
