SAM CLAFLIN'S AMERICAN ACCENT GETS A "THUMBS UP" FROM 'HUNGER GAMES'
SWATH's Sam Claflin has switched places with Kristen Stewart when it comes to dealing with foreign accents. In SWATH, American Stewart had to perfect her British accent and now Claflin being British has to present an American accent in his new film 'Catching Fire'. Claflin must be hitting the mark because his co-star Jennifer Lawrence is raving about it.
Lawrence recently told MTV's Josh Horowitz in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival that "He's [Sam] got a great American accent" and says that "He's wonderful."
Claflin has teased his American accent in interviews during the SWATH press junket and has done it in a film before. So we know he can do it.
See Lawrence talk about Claflin in the video below.
