Since Sam Claflin has a British accent and Finnick obviously will not, ever wonder what Finnick will sound like (sort of)? Our friends at HG Fireside Chat have found and uploaded a video of Sam in a scene from The Lost Future, a 2010 Syfy TV movie. What do you think? You can hear him slip into his native British accent a few times, but i’m sure he has improved his American accent since then!
While Sam Claflin was filming Snow White and the Huntsman, he sat down with Socialite Life to discuss SWATH and his archery training he had to do for the movie. Sam joked around saying that he’s better than Katniss with a bow and arrow (around the 1:50 mark). You never know, maybe we will get a BTS archery competition between those two for the Catching Fire DVD extras!
Jack Quaid, Alexander Ludwig, Amandla Stenberg, and Dayo Okeniyi were spotted at The Grove in Los Angeles, CA on August 20, 2012. They were filming an appearance on Extra!
ACT: You are nominated for Male Film Star at VH1′s Do Something Awards for your work with Straight But Not Narrow. (Congrats!) Tell us a little why you are so passionate about this cause! What does it mean to you?
JOSH: I have always believed in standing up for what I believe in and I believe that everyone deserves the right to love whoever they love no matter who they are. SBNN is great because it reaches out to the straight community to spread the word about rising up and saying you have the right to be you.
ACT: Many teens are faced with the plight of bullying growing up. Was bullying ever an issue with you? What advice do you have for those currently going through it?
JOSH: I was very fortunate and didn’t personally encounter any bullies in school, however bullies exist in many ways in life. I think the best thing you can do is be secure in who you are and realize that the person who is bullying is the one you should feel sorry for their lack of knowledge. Bullies are just ignorant.
ACT: Straight But Not Narrow is an organization you work very closely with. Why do you feel it is so important for straight guys like you to take a stand? JOSH: I think it’s important because I want the LGBT community to know they have allies in the straight community. I also feel that the most hate is perpetuated by the straight community so I think reaching out to the “haters” is important. I try to broaden people’s horizons.

Justine Magazine recently caught up with Amandla Stenberg and Willow Shields to talk about life and whats in store for their futures!
Amandla Stenberg, 13, plays Rue
In your death scene with Katniss, how were you able to stay still for so long when she was placing flowers all over your body? It was really difficult actually because we were in the middle of the woods in North Carolina and there were bugs and snakes and I knew they were around us. I was actually terrified! I could feel them crawling up my arms. And what happened was we were in a meadow where there were hornets’ nests all over the ground and someone stepped on one and it exploded and I would shriek and run up and ruin the scene and I got stung!
What is your favorite subject in school and why? Humanities, because I love reading and writing. One day, I hope I can write some scripts. I’ve been working on writing stories and brainstorming and that kind of thing and just reading a lot.
Willow Shields, 12, plays Prim
After starring in this huge blockbuster, has this experience made you want to continue a career in film? Yes. I would love to be an actress. Josh [Hutcherson] started acting when he was 11 or younger but just continued on to now and I would love to do something like that. I’m really loving film right now and that’s what I’m going to stick to right now.
What has been the fan reaction to the film portrayal of your characters? I think it’s good. It’s been really great and they really appreciate my acting in The Hunger Gameswhich I’m grateful for.

What is the most the bizarre encounter you’ve had thus far with fans?
“Let me think… Mostly fans are very nice and just kind and calm when they meet you. They have gotten kind of crazy. [Laughing] I know at the premiere it was incredibly crazy with all the fans. They were like throwing books up at the front so that you could sign them, and stuff like that. I think I got hit by a book a couple of times in the face at the premiere. But other than that, I haven’t had very many crazy fan encounters.”
Did you read The Hunger Games because you knew the movie was coming up or just because your brother was a big fan?
“I just wanted to read it. My brother was like, ‘These are incredible books, you have to read them.’ So I was like, ‘Okay, then I have to read them!’ And then I got the audition after that. I know my brother had been talking about it for like a year. Like, ‘Oh my god, they’re makingThe Hunger Games into a movie. I’m so excited.’ It was kind of interesting when I got the part. It was like, ‘Wow!’”
Are you really looking forward to having your character take more of a prominent role in the story?
“Yeah, I’m really excited because her role becomes a bit bigger. She really matures in Catching Fire and Mockingjay.”
Is there something you picked up from the book that you didn’t find from the script that you could latch onto that really helped you play her?
“I think we both love animals and I thought that helped me play Prim. I think she’s just such a cool character that it was kind of just easy for me to play. She’s such an amazing character and I think for some reason just what helped was because of the fact that she’s such a cool character.”
And I would imagine working with director Gary Ross also helped.
“He’s an incredible director. What I loved about Gary is that he would let you explore your acting and see what you could do with your role and what you felt was good for the character, which was incredible for me because it was helping me work on my acting, you know? He let me explore what I can do and that really helped. It was basically like, in some way, without knowing it, training me in a way to become an even better actress.”
