Sam Claflin interview

0 Comments

Elle Magazine interviews Claflin about auditioning for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with out know what she was auditioning for.

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.

Flare interview

Claflin gives an interview to Flare magazine. He talks about his role in Love, Rosie, his favorite romantic comedies, and advice he’s gotten.

The best advice is be yourself and don’t let love change you. Because I think people get so wrapped up in it, they kind of lose themselves, who they are and what’s important to them. But I think love should support you—it should make you a better you, not change you.
