AUDIO: Sam Claflin talks about Finnick; reveals he's seen the official 'Catching Fire' trailer (UPDATED)

Actor Sam Claflin who will be playing our beloved Finnick Odair, attended the Jameson Empire Awards 2013 last night to present the award for Best Female New Comer. While walking the red carpet, Empire had the chance to catch up on him about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, where he reveals that he has seen a trailer, before quickly saying that he probably shouldn't have said that. Ha!

Listen to the audio below (we'll make sure to update this post when a video surfaces online). Warning: Spoilers ahead! If you haven't read up to the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy, don't listen.

What did you see? 
I have not seen … I’ve seen a trailer … maybe. MAYBE, MAYBE! [Laughs] Maybe I shouldn’t have said that. I’m very very proud of this. It’s one of the things I’m really excited to share with the world! It’s a fantastic feat, I think. Francis Lawrence is truly a wonderful director. So to have his touch on this franchise is a great thing. 
What can you say Finnick? 
Finnick is a very complex character. From people who have read the books, they’ll know that he has his ups and downs. He’s very much in love with Annie Cresta – this girl who goes crazy from his district. He gets put into the games to protect and preserve Katniss and her reputation. That’s pretty much my role, I’m the good guy.
UPDATE: A video of the interview has surfaced online! 

This makes us very excited. If he has indeed seen a trailer, it only means that the day that we have been waiting for is near.
