Sam Claflin and Laura Haddock are officially husband and wife. The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony, and news about their marriage broke out only after a pal posted a picture of the newlyweds slicing their multi-tiered wedding cake together.
Claflin once said it was love at the first sight for him. He met her during an audition. "I called my agent, I said, 'Mate, I am in love,' " he recalled. "He's like, 'How did the audition go, mate?' I was like, 'No, no, you don't understand. I have just met the woman I want to marry.' "
He met her again on a London subway and continued to stay in touch before eventually dating. "We started Skyping and I flew her out to L.A. and then here we are," he said.
The actor gushed, "She's my female counterpart is the best way to describe her. She is my mum ... She reminds me of my mum so much which I think -- a guy will know, right? It's important. Your mum knows like everything."
Haddock was equally charmed by her beau, "Well, he is very sexy. But he's really not very serious. You know, he looks gorgeous in that film. But if you said that to him, he'd say, 'What? Me? I'm from Norwich!' "
Claflin will next be seen starring opposite Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". He previously played Kristen Stewart's love interest in "Snow White and the Huntsman".
