Sam Claflin & Olivia Cooke, The Quiet Ones

England’s latest exports, rising stars Sam Claflin, 27, and Olivia Cooke, 20, teamed up for April 2014's psychological horror drama The Quiet Ones, but that was only the beginning for these talented newcomers. June will see Cooke in the startling sci-fi thriller The Signal, while October positions her as the star of Universal’s Ouija, inspired, yes, by the notorious board. Claflin, already spotted in Snow White and the Huntsman and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will catch plenty of notice in November's Hunger Games installment Mockingjay: Part 1 reprising his role as handsome Finnick Odair. In separate sitdown interviews at LA’s famed Chateau Marmont the actors talk about luck, ambition, study and, in Claflin’s case, the sudden loss of  a co-star with Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death.
