It looks like the cast of the Hunger Games suffer the same series withdrawal as their fans.

Director Francis Lawrence called cut for the last time when filming wrapped on the final instalment of the dystopian franchise over the weekend.

Adapted from the third book of the series, the big-screen version of Mockingjay will be split into two movies.

Hunky actor Sam Claflin, who plays fan favourite Finnick Odair in the films, said he felt privileged to work on the project.

"I just want/need to express my many thanks to everyone (cast, crew & fans) who have worked so hard," he tweeted.

"Also (for) trusting me enough to let me be part of it."

"I feel privileged, honoured and so very lucky."

 

 

He rounded out the heartfelt tweets with the apt hashtag: "".

Meanwhile, producer Nina Jacobson shared a picture of four huddled figures - potentially including stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth - to mark the end of filming.

For Jena Malone, aka the firebrand Johanna Mason, it was a "sad but beautiful feeling" to be saying goodbye to Suzanne Collins' futuristic Panem.

"(I'm) letting go of a character I love," she wrote on Instagram.

"What an incredible journey it's been ... ."

Kiwi fans will have to wait until November 20 for Mockingjay: Part 1 to hit cinemas.
