Sam Claflin has revealed he is "excited" about playing Kristen Stewart's Prince Charming.

The up-and-coming British actor, who makes his big-screen debut in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has won the coveted role of Prince Charmant in Snow White And The Huntsman, opposite the Twilight actress who will be portraying the beloved princess.

"I'm very excited - I'm a big fan of her work. I'm truly sort of flabbergasted, that's a good word, I love that," he told MTV.com.

He added: "I'm very lucky. Very, very lucky."

The 24-year-old, who previously appeared in TV series Any Human Heart, is thrilled about forging his new film career.

"I'm just looking forward to getting my teeth into something new as well. I've never had so much fun [as I did] doing [Pirates], working with Astrid Berges-Frisbey and all the other actors," he revealed.

Based on the legendary Grimm's fairy tale, Snow White And The Huntsman follows Snow White after the evil queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) calls for her death.

The contemporary story, directed by Rupert Sanders, will see the huntsman (rumoured to be Chris Hemsworth) disobey orders, but instead of leaving the princess to fend for herself, mentor and train her to fight off the queen.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

This isn't a good time to gamble. Even if an investment seems like a sure thing, it could undermine your financial security. Keep your money safe in the bank. If a loved one is clamouring to make a big purchase, sit down together and review your bank account. Once your partner sees the truth of the situation, they'll feel less compelled to splash out on luxuries. This shortage will be temporary, as long as you exercise restraint during lean times. Getting into serious debt will make a tough situation worse.More
