with Comments Off on Sam on the cover of EW + 1st still of Catching Fire
released a first look at Catching Fire! You can see our dear Sam as Finnick Odair with Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen on the cover! They also released the first still…. and we have no words. We are so proud of Sam, he embodies Finnick perfectly! Look at him! He’s shining. The hair, the smile, everything!
What do you think? Is Sam your Finnick?
s article (last paragraph is about Sam): ” The revolution has been sparked. In this week’s cover story, EW traveled to Waikiki, Hawaii where cast and crew were in the final days of production on the eagerly anticipated
Hunger Games sequel,
Catching Fire (in theaters Nov. 21). Just as the revolution that could embolden the people of Panem rests on young Katniss Everdeen’s shoulders, the success of the franchise depends largely upon Jennifer Lawrence. After spending the day outrunning death in a nearby jungle, the 22-year-old actress ordered herself a Budweiser and kicked back in the Trump balcony lounge to discuss the sequel, her life now as a blockbuster star, and her willful inability to behave like the nice sound-bite machine Hollywood might expect her to be. “It’s almost like I subconsciously don’t want to work anymore so I’m trying to ruin my career,” she says with a laugh at one point, before leaning in close to the reporter’s tape recorder. “I’m pregnant!” she joked.
From her first meeting with new director Francis Lawrence (“I spit egg inside his mouth when I was talking. Into his mouth”) to the raucous party she hosted for the Catching Fire cast and crew (“When Sam walked in I was chasing Woody and we’d flipped over my couch and Woody had a sock all the way down my throat…”), Lawrence was frank and funny and self-aware. “I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood,” she says, “and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.”
Then in an exclusive conversation, director Francis Lawrence described his vision for the sequel, his immediate three-day pow-wow with series writer Suzanne Collins to ready a script, and how one of his inherited cast members had a particularly hard time adjusting to the loss of Hunger Games director Gary Ross. (Woody Harrelson, who plays Katniss and Peeta’s wry and PTSD-ruined wreck of a mentor Haymitch.)
EW also sat down with Sam Claflin, the green-eyed, dimpled Brit who won the role of District 4′s charming and enigmatic golden boy Finnick Odair, for his first Hunger Games interview. He described filming the infamous sugar cube scene, in which Finnick teases Katniss while wearing nothing beyond some strategically placed netting, as “the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”

with Comments Off on Sam Claflin Chosen for One Of Biggest Breakout Stars Of 2012
As 2012 winds down to an end, we have seen a lot of final reviews on all of the big things of the year. And one of them happens to be Sam Claflin. Sam Claflin has played in several movies, several roles, and for several companies. Some were smaller movies, roles, and companies, but some were large which premiered (or filmed) in the last year and a half or so. Which is why we are not surprised that Sam was chosen as one of Teen.com’s
12 biggest breakout stars of 2012.
One of Sam’s first big roles was in 2011′s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and his career has only gotten hotter from there! Not only did he star alongside Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman, but he got cast as Finnick Odair in a little film called The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, maybe you’ve heard of it? Sam nabbed the highly-coveted role, and we predict he’ll be a household name by this time next year!
Couldn’t have said it better outselves, teen.com. I’m sure we will see his name in several more “biggest of 2012″ articles before the new year!

Jennifer Lawrence talks about Sam and Josh Hutcherson’s bromance off-screen

Jennifer talks with MTV
about Sam and Josh Hutcherson bromance, here’s the transcription:
If you ask “Hunger Games” fans about what scenes they most anticipate seeing in “Catching Fire,” you’re likely to get a variety of responses. The fact is, Suzanne Collins’ second novel in the trilogy has a lot going on. But if you ask what character they’re most looking forward to seeing in action, dreamy District 4 champ Finnick Odair would likely get the majority vote.
Ever since the fan favorite role was cast with “Snow White and the Huntsman” star Sam Claflin, we’ve been dying to hear some details about Claflin’s performance thus far from someone in the know. Thankfully we had a recent opportunity with lady Katniss herself, Jennifer Lawrence, who revealed a surprising little tidbit when we asked her what she loves most about Claflin in the role.
“That is not a question for me,” Lawrence told MTV News Monday (November 19) at a Los Angeles screening of her new movie “Silver Linings Playbook.”
Oh no? Who among the star-studded cast should we consult about the subject then?
“Josh Hutcherson,” Lawrence said. “They are in love. It’s a full-blown bromance and it’s really bromantic and adorable. It’s really cute. It’s annoying, but it’s cute.”
We can’t wait to see that in action, despite the fact that Hutcherson and Claflin’s characters aren’t exactly the best of friends in “Catching Fire.” Anyway, annoying real-life bromance or not, Lawrence has praised Claflin’s acting chops.

Remember when Sam said that he never forgets to answer his fanmail? If you want to write to Sam, follow the steps: HERE.
Well, I was so happy when he answered me on Twitter that day. But it’s nothing compared to what I felt this morning when I woke up and found this big envelope!
I am such a pessimistic person, that At first thought it was a return to the sender, and that the shipping didn’t go well for some reason. Then I realized what it really was! But I didn’t expect it at all. I sent the letter during mid-July and with Sam being in Atlanta, I thought it would be a long time before be answered. So here are the scans of the two photos I sent and received back: One especially for me (Val) and the others for SCF.
|To @SamClaflinFans – What can I say ? I’d be lost without you. You guys ROCK! Much love”
|“To Val, Thank you so much for all your support. You diamond. <3″
Guys, we are so happy! I mean I could literally hear his voice while I was reading. Sam is such an amazing person and we love him so much and will support him forever. We can’t thanks Sam enough for this.
In the envelope there was also another signed photo.
Also here is the note we got too. We wanted to share this with you guys
