This exclusive, online only, interview will give you a whole new look on filming and training in Hawaii, dealing with the paparazzi and how fame has, or hasn't affected them. It's apparent that these two have awesome chemistry on and off screen (totally friendly, by the way). They seem to get each other.
When asked about how it was like to revisit her character, Katniss, for the second time after a break, Jennifer Lawrence explained, "It was kind of weird to go back because I had this idea when I first signed on to the franchise that it would get boring playing the same character. I've never done that. I've always played a brand new character. Katniss is the same character but in completely new circumstances. She's changed.”
Lawrence explained in a recent interview how it felt to go back to her character and find herself comparing the growth she and Katniss have to go through. While it's hard to understand how Lawrence and Katniss could be compared, we get what you're saying, J-Law.
Teen Vogue asked Sam Claflin how he got in shape to play the physical role of Finnick.
“I was definitely not in shape. There was a lot of training involved. Months and months of eating the same meals every day. Omelet in the morning, protein shake in the afternoon. The same routine of gym and stunt training. I'm happy with the end result. I did the best I could.”
From the looks of the pictures released by Lionsgate, Claflin has nothing to worry about.
The article goes on to talk about how a new person coming into an established cast might throw things off. However, Lawrence explains that because of her, there weren’t any problems.
“Yeah, I needed everyone to know I was in charge,” she explains, laughing. “I just wanted everyone to be comfortable. When there are new people, it can get awkward, but everyone was so great. Including you Sam.”
Claflin explains further that it was Jennifer’s abilities in archery that intimidated him.
We would be too, Sam. We would be too.
If you didn't know, 'Catching Fire' comes out on November 22. Promo for the movie is starting in a couple of weeks and we can definitely expect to see more of these two and their other co-stars.
