Sam Claflin

Just got the role of Finnick Odair. Catching Fire was my favourite of the three.

To see a little animation process of how this was made. Check out my tumblr here.
Starts with a sketch that looks nothing like them, then I work into it more and more until it vaguely resembles a human being.

No one, and I repeat NO-ONE, will ever match the Finnick that is created in my mind. I thought Alex Pettyfer would be a good Finnick but it's still not the same.
I think this guy could pull it off...

And this is an awesome drawing!:dummy:

Tbh the version in my head was more Alex Pettyfer too.
But this guy will be just as good I'm sure. I think the main thing was finding someone with bronze hair and the sea green eyes - which he pretty much has.
And I'm sure he's in the gym as we speak eating nothing but steak and sweet potatoes hehe, rather him than me.

Yeah that's very true lol. Bronze hair and green eyes... I guess the producers don't have much to work with in that area. But at least Sam Caflin here is good IMO.
Steak :dummy:

The reason they limited themselves was because they kept Finnick... well... white.
I don't know how diverse most people from other places in the US are but where I'M from? There's people who match Suzanne Collin's description of Finnick perfectly.
They all hail from the Caribbean. They have naturally sun-kissed tanned skinned red hair and sea-foam green eyes and they're naturally athletic and tall. It's because of all the 'intermarrying' (let's call it that) between Afro slaves and European settlers on the islands.
Interracial children look like this. Just look at Blake Griffin from the NBA. He's a very like shade of tan with red hair and freckles because he has Irish and black in him. Then you look at Rihanna who has light hazel eyes and Beyonce who has natural blonde hair, both of whom have Irish ancestry, and you realize that Finnick really shouldn't have been white.
I have many Irish friends and I can tell you from first hand experience, these dudes DON'T tan! They BURN!:laughing:
There was NO way they were going to find a natural redhead who could tan to play Finnick unless they went out of the box and into the Caribbean islands...

I know, it's just.. he doesn't LOOK like Finnick to me. I was hoping for either Garrett Hedlund or Grant Gustin :(
