Elle interviews Sam Claflin about becoming Finnick Odair

"I was sent over a script and there was no title to what I was reading. It was just two scenes with a character called “Finnick” and a mini-character breakdown. I started reading the scene and saw the name Katniss, and I’d just recently seen The Hunger Games, so I thought, “OK, is this a connection?” But I didn’t know it was a trilogy. I just thought it was a one-time film. So I typed Finnick Odair” into Google an all these book and fan pages came up and I was kind of like, “whoa.” So, I just went through all of it and did as much research as I could the night before."

@SamClaflin Also, finished watching #thehungergames again today. To say I’m excited for November would be a huge understatement! #catchingfire

We love seeing how excited Sam is for Catching Fire! More than anything, we wanted whoever was going to play Finnick to love the character as much as we do.
