Claflin on Lawrence terror prank

Sam Claflin has spoken about a scary prank he and his Hunger Games co-stars played on Jennifer Lawrence.

The Brit actor appears alongside Jennifer, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and spoke at the premiere about how they would entertain themselves on set.

He revealed: "There was a tunnel with no lights, so when you opened the door, that was the only light source. We were daring each other to stand in there for 30 seconds and then we'd close the door and it was pitch black and you could hear things like the road going over the top, it was quite an experience.

"One day we decided to put Jen in there, but hide Josh in there as well before she got there. So she had no idea there was anyone else in there, she thought she was just going to be in there, she thought she was just going to be strong for 30 seconds.

"Then he started making noise in the darkness, so of course, naturally, the screams started. We were all standing outside the door laughing our heads off."

The final instalment in The Hunger Games series will be Mockingjay Part 2.

Part 1 is released in cinemas on November 21.
