Sam Claflin was left with seriously smelly socks on the set of Me Before You after Emilia Clarke played a fishy prank on her co-star.
The Game of Thrones actress reveals she used the remains of a seafood lunch they had been served to get Sam back after engaging in a merciless practical joke war while shooting the romantic drama, about a young female caretaker who falls for her quadriplegic patient.
"I put fish in his socks, but that was just one of them," Emilia smiled to Eonline.com. "(It was) the fish that we had for lunch. I had limited resources. He had just pranked me and I was like, 'I've got 20 minutes until the end of the day so I have to get this done.'"
She also left Sam red-faced by fitting his character's wheelchair with a fart machine, but The Hunger Games star had a few tricks up his own sleeve too - he once jumped out of Emilia's trailer closet, terrifying her with his shocking exit from the wardrobe.

Fatherhood was a bit of a shock for actor Sam Claflin.
The Hunger Games star and his wife Laura Haddock welcomed their first child, a son, in December (15), and he admits the family transition has been truly life-altering.
"I always thought, naively, that I knew what it would be like," he told People Now. "I always thought that I’d understand, (but when he was born), it’s like another level of love that you’ve never experienced before, you can’t describe to someone unless (they’re) in it."
The 29-year-old has been juggling fatherhood with his rocketing career, and he is currently busy promoting his new movie Me Before You, but Sam insists he wouldn't change a thing about his life right now and loves any snatched moments he gets with his son while he's working.

Actor Sam Claflin could never maintain a buff body like Zac Efron does as he "despises" the gym.
The British star has won over fans with both his performance skills in movies like The Riot Club and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and his chiselled good looks. But despite his heartthrob status, Sam has the same body hangups as anyone else, especially when he compares himself to other young actors.
"I constantly worry about how I look because I think the standards among other actors is so high," the 29-year-old sighed to Red magazine. "Take Zac Efron, for example. He's about my age, we were both nominated for best shirtless scene (at the MTV Movie Awards) and I'd vote for him! He keeps that up all the time. That's one hell of a life choice. I couldn't do it. I despise the gym. I'll do it for work if I need to, but if I don't need to then I'd rather have a pint or burger with my mates."
Sam doesn't just feel wary for himself - there's his wife Laura Haddock, who gave birth to their son last December (15), to think about too. As she is also an actor, her post-baby figure is often commented on by the media - something which Sam has noticed impacts her.

Emilia Clarke is delighted she is making her friends cry with her new movie Me Before You.
The Game of Thrones actress plays Louisa Clark, who takes care of a young paralysed man Will Traynor, played by Sam Claflin, as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in the upcoming romance drama, which is based on the 2012 Jojo Moyes novel of the same name.
The tearjerker is set to have audiences reaching for their tissues, so Emilia was happy when she screened the film for her friends and they were reduced to tears as it meant the movie has achieved its purpose.
“I haven’t done a very sad movie before,” she told EW.com. “And now I’ve had friends that have seen the movie, are in tears, crying and I’m like, ‘Yay, good, I’m glad, I’m so happy that I’ve made you break down in tears.’

She stars alongside Sam Claflin in the Jojo Moyes adaptation.
Time for a love story with a bit of a difference. It's always tragic when fate intervenes in a relationship to complicate things in unimaginable ways, but for Louisa Clark and William Traynor in 'Me Before You', their love has its complications from the very beginning.
A new trailer featuring Ed Sheeran's 'Photograph' for this tear-jerker will likely break your heart into a million pieces. 'Me Before You' follows a vivacious though slightly odd woman in her 20s as she embarks on a new career as the personal carer to a young man confined to a wheelchair after an accident left him almost completely paralysed. It's not something she's ever experienced before, and what follows is a relationship she never dreamed of.
Up until his recent accident that left him almost entirely paralysed, William Traynor has had a perfect life. He's rich, intelligent and always seeking a new adventure, though now he feels like his life has come to an end. He finds himself in the family house being nannied by his mother and staff. To put an end to his current state, Will decides that he wants to end his life in a clinic. With his mother understandably distraught over his choice, Will agrees to wait six months before committing to his decision.
Louisa Clark is a young local woman who lives a life completely different to Will. Though she doesn't have much self-belief, she's incredibly upbeat, likes her small town ways and has never felt the need to go out and discover the world. When Louisa is left jobless, she pays a visit to the job centre (a place that she's a little too accustom to) and her advisor finds a new listing (for a care giver) that might just be a perfect job for Louisa. Louisa visits the Traynor family estate and Will's mum decides that Louisa and her positivity might just be the ray of sunshine that he needs.
Whilst Will is initially reluctant to allow Louisa into his life, over the course of the following weeks, he can't help but be enamoured by her charm. Their relationship grows and grows but when Lousia finds out about Will's choices for the future, will she be able to convince Will that there is something to live for?

Suzanne Collins' saga comes to a suitably epic conclusion in a climactic series of battles that are packed with emotional kicks to the gut. Director Francis Lawrence continues to show remarkable reverence for the source novels while relying on his A-list cast to bring layers of nuance to even the smallest roles. The result is a massively textured war movie that's packed with darkly personal moments and glimpses of wit and spark. It's also a satisfying conclusion to the franchise that avoids the usual Hollywood bombast.
As the rebels prepare to attack Panem's Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the rebellion's figurehead Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) decides to take matters into her own hands. Rebel leaders Coin and Plutarch (Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman) try to stay one step ahead of Katniss, using her as the Mockingjay to rally the troops. With Gale (Liam Hemsworth), a not-quite-unbrainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a small group of cohorts, Katniss works her way across the bombed-out city to Snow's mansion, intending to put an arrow through his heart. But the battle takes a shocking twist, and Katniss has to make a difficult decision about doing the right thing no matter what it costs her.
Right from the start, the filmmakers continue to echo Katniss' earliest act of heroism when she volunteered for the Hunger Games to protect her sister Prim (Willow Shields) and then vowed to keep Peeta safe in the violent arena. These are the things that drive her right to the very end of this saga, holding the audience in an emotional grip. This means that the political nastiness, violent warfare and publicity posturing all have a much deeper resonance for the audience, while for Katniss they are virtually irrelevant. Her mission remains untainted: she just wants to protect her loved ones and make the future safe. Which is why her speeches carry such rousing power.
