Sam Claflin recently stopped by EXTRA to talk about his newly released film, The Quiet Ones during his time he also gave a tight lipped update on Mockingjay.
Claflin said, “I want to tell you everything, that’s the worst part. All I can say is it’s going very well and looks amazing. The sets are incredible and the costumes are insane. I’m thinking about it and I’m smiling. There’s a lot more to come.”
Last week, Natalie Dormer, stopped by Late Night With Seth Myers, and during her visit she talked about Game of Thrones her experiences training for Mockingjay and her Cressida hairstyle.
While promoting The Quiet Ones, Sam Claflin spoke briefly to MTV about work on Mockingjay, his first time working with Liam Hemsworth, all the “newbies” on set (including Stef Dawson) and the realization that this journey is almost at its end.
“I’m like bursting at the seams but I’m going to have to keep quiet,” he said.
Claflin, who plays the roguish Finnick, has bonded with his castmates and says that “people are realizing that things are coming to an end,” so this is their last chance to goof off and crack up their friends on set.
“It’s been very tough, especially with the things that we’ve been shooting recently that are a little more serious,” he said.
Natalie Dormer has been making the rounds to promote Game of Thrones and lucky for us, conversation turns to her character in Mockingjay.
“I got away lightly in the end,” she said. “I reconciled myself to shaving my entire head, and then I had a conference with Francis Lawrence, the director, and he said, ‘You know what, I was thinking maybe we’d just go half.’”

Sam Claflin recently did a fantastic interview with Collider to talk about his career, his upcoming films, and (YES) some Mockingjay discussion as well.(NOTE: The Hunger Games discussion really gets focused at 6:25)
During the interview, Sam reflects on the ending of the series and hints that the expected final wrap for Mockingjay will be sometime in June. He also says the film is going to be as “epic and as great and grand” as the previous installments. He discusses the characters being “ripped apart” and at the “lowest point they’ve been” at the beginning of the film and they have to “build it back up.”
We could seriously just listen to Sam talk all day…heck we could listen to him read the phone book and we’d be enthralled…though we have to admit the Mockingjay talk is a definite bonus.
