Quiet Riot

'Two first-year students at Oxford University join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.'

If I were to have assembled my dream cast of young, hot English actors, I am quite sure Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Douglas Booth would all have made the list.

I have featured each of these talented thespians on FH but was surprised to only learn last week they starred together in last years The Riot Club. I have yet to watch the film, but love the premise. I am guessing from my search there is little to no skin, but I am still looking forward to seeing these three go toe to toe in what I hope is well written material!

Talk me through your characters.

MR CLAFLIN: My character, Alistair Ryle, is the brother of an ex-president of the Riot Club. He’s a young man who has always lived in his brother's shadow.

MR IRONS: Mine, Miles, isn't from the same background as the others and becomes hypnotised by the idea of being at the top table.

MR BOOTH: And Harry, who I play, is a more senior member. He’s a young man with a title and the keys to an old country pile waiting for him when he graduates. He already has his whole life planned out for him – fixing leaky ceilings, ushering tourists through his living room etc – and as a result he sees this as the only time in his life when he's able to cut loose.
