Sam Clalfin did an awesome interview with Josh Horowitz promoting his new movie Love Rosie co-starring Lily Collins. During the interview, Sam shared a funny Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson story, on how his life has changed since being cast as Finnick Odair and a very important scene from ‘Mockingjay’ part 2. Listen below :
Here’s a few excerpts from the interview :
Sam on meeting Woody Harrelson at Jennifer’s apartment at the 25:00 minute mark:
There are moments of both [freaking out and enjoying being with very famous actors]. I suppose walking into Jennifer Lawrence’s apartment for the first time during Catching Fire and seeing Woody [Harrelson] wearing a ladies crop top, that I thought was HIS top. I thought, ‘This looks about right for how I imagined Woody Harrelson to be, him with a tasseled crop top.’ I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s totally normal, I think.’
Sam talks how life has changed since being cast as Finnick Odair:
I think now, moreso that ever, I do occasionally get noticed, or people give me a dirty look. I don’t know if it’s that I have that face that people want to punch, or that I look reasonably familiar. [Laughs] You look a bit like that guy. But, no, can’t be, too ugly. It has definitely catapulted my career, in that sense. It’s allowed me to walk into some bigger rooms and meet some bigger people. But at the same time I definitely feel like I live my life like I always have. I don’t take anything for granted, I’m very appreciative to be in my position, and gracious. Yeah. I still feel very lucky to be here. I definitely think it’s only a matter of time before people realize I can’t act. [laughs] But long may it continue in the mean time. I’m going to make the most of it while I can!
Sam on an important Mockingjay Part 2 scene at the 34:38 mark :
It was the worst day of filming I have ever done in my life. I think I actually got hooked up to oxygen tanks because I was so, uh, it was so… It’s awesome. I don’t wanna talk too much about it but it was a really hard day of work for me. Brutal. It was just me, y’know, all day. I don’t want to talk too much about it because, obviously, it’s not out yet. But I’d like to think this whole last segment, the ending, the conclusion to this franchise won’t disappoint people. It’s bigger, yeah, I’m VERY excited.”
