Holding a sugar cube.


All this physical prepping so that he wouldn’t let Finnick’s fans down during the infamous sugar cube scene when the character teases Katniss while wearing a strategically placed bit of net. Just how much net he’ll have on remains to be seen. ‘They did have to tone it down from what it is in the book because they can’t make it too graphic if you know what I’m saying,’ he pauses with a sheepish smile. ‘Because it was just a knot covering his, basically, you know what I’m saying! I was definitely prepared to do anything. But the costumer said ‘Well we can’t have you in nothing’ so I’m kind of covered up.’

Sam Claflin talks getting in shape to play Finnick and nailing his sexiest scene in Catching Fire.

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.’”

Okay, just one more tidbit from our Catching Fire cover… for now.


And don’t worry, the odds are in your favor — more pictures are coming.
