Hunger Games Sweden has an exclusive interview with newly cast Amandla Stenberg (aka Rue). In the interview Amandla discusses her delight on being a part of the Hunger Games and how big of a fan she is of the series. FYI — if you have not read the books, this interview may be a little bit spoiler-y for you!
I am so excited to be playing Rue in THE HUNGER GAMES. Because I was already a fan of the books – I’ve read the first one five times – the audition process was really exciting. I’m looking forward to working Gary Ross and the rest of the HUNGER GAMES cast and crew. And I just know that meeting Suzanne Collins will be a real thrill. I read an interview in which she said that she’s planning to be on set when Rue dies. OMG!!!
Amandla seems genuine and completely elated to be a part of the Hunger Games movie! And we are extremely excited that she has been cast as Rue!
