Catching Fire: First Look at Finnick!

by at .  Updated at .

We still have nearly a year to go until Catching Fire hits the theaters, but Hunger Games fans are in for a thrill this week:

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features Jennifer Lawrence on the cover as Katniss Everdeen - and also Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair!

It's our first look at this British actor in the key role:

Claflin tells the magazine that he was petrified to film the infamous scene in which Finnick interacts with Katniss while donning nothing but strategically placed netting, explaining:

It was “the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”

Considering the rising star is still alive - and in the running to play Four in Divergent - it's safe to assume he nailed the role.

This copy of EW will be available newsstands Friday, January 11.
