Sam Claflin - Instyle

The man playing Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, turned out for InStyle‘s Best of British Talent Party.  While there, Sam Claflin was asked about Catching Fire.  He admits that he’s a bit nervous to see how it all turns out, but he also revealed that he’s a HUGE Jennifer Lawrence fan:

Sam plays new boy Finnick Odair in latest Hunger Games instalment, Catching Fire, and it’s clear he struck up a lasting friendship with Jennifer during his time on set: “She was amazing – love her to bits. I have all the time in the world for her and she’s obviously doing hugely well.”

Though he joked that her recent run of success may mean she’s now rethinking their relationship: “It got to a point where I was texting her every day saying: “Congratulations, congratulations again for something else, congratulations on your nomination, congratulations on winning” and I think she must be bored of my English voice by now!”

About the forthcoming film he revealed: “I’m hugely excited to see it, but nervous to be honest. We worked so hard and had so much fun.”

And it seems the hard graft wasn’t just reserved to Sam’s on-set experience – his diet for the active role also proved a struggle: “People think I exaggerate when I say I literally ate chicken and asparagus every day, twice a day for three/four months.”
