Damn Sam Claflin is one sexy mofo! He spoke to Express about his transformation to Finnick.
“I had to go through a huge physical transformation to try and be as ‘Ken doll’ as I could,” laughs Sam, whose shirtless scenes are something of a feature in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. “There were many, many months in the gym and many months of eating nothing but chicken and asparagus.”
When we meet, the biceps he built up to play Finnick Odair are straining the fabric of his shirt. But then, Sam has had to stay in shape. Mockingjay – Part 1, which comes to screens in November, sees Sam back in the Hunger Games arena, fighting for his life as Finnick, a character he describes as “charming, charismatic, sexy – and so very far from me”.
Well I’m putting my boyfriend on a chicken and asparagus diet.
