Alan Ritchson reveals that Catching Fire co-star, Sam Claflin, broke his hand during a rehersal, and apparently just brushed it off. Sounds like our Finnick is a pretty tough guy!
Catching Fire hurts.
At least it did for franchise newcomer Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick in the Hunger Games sequel.
“Sam got hurt the worst,” Alan Ritchson, who plays Gloss in Catching Fire, told me at the MTV Movie Awards. “He broke his hand doing a stunt.”
Don’t look for footage of the mishap in a DVD extra, though. “It was in rehearsal, so we weren’t even shooting,” Ritchson said. “He broke it on the stunt guy, warming up. I was standing right next to him. It was tough to watch.”
But, Ritchson said, Claflin “took it like a champ—he took it and kept moving.”
