Movies.com recently had a chance to sit down with Liam Hemsworth who talked about how he brought his character, Gale, to life on the big screen. For those of you who have seen the movie how do you think he did?
Movies.com: You have to provide a grounding influence in a world that’s often very fantastical. What if anything did you think about to include to create a juxtaposition between District 12 and the capital?
Liam Hemsworth: The world that District 12 is living in is very realistic – it’s not futuristic in any way. They’re living in depression and they’re living in basically 1900s technology. They’re hunting for food, a lot of them, and trying to get what little money they can from different jobs, but it’s a pretty grim place to live in. I remember when we shot the Reaping scenes, we had three or four hundred extras on set, and all of these young kids and young adults, and the thought I think was in every mind – if this was real, and we really all were standing here waiting for someone’s name to get called out that might be your brother or your sister or your best friend, as an actor it was already all there. It was so strong and powerful, the idea and the theme, that it was easy as an actor to convey that.
Check out this hilarious Jennifer Lawrence interview from Chelsea Lately! I always love how Jennifer seems like herself in these interviews.

The Hub Now was able to get an interview with Amber Chaney who plays the avox girl in The Hunger Games. Check out some of the exerts from it below, or read the whole interview here:
It’s one thing to play a character with lots of dialogue, but your Avox Girl can’t speak given her lack of tongue. Describe the complexities of playing a character where you need to communicate emotion without using your voice.
Well… in the acting program I was trained in we weren’t allowed to speak in our improv class for the first year. So, this really wasn’t a stretch. Lavinia (the Avox Girl’s name) has – just like any other character – an objective and an obstacle. Usually the character’s obstacle isn’t so blatant as “missing a tongue so I can’t cry for help,” so you really have to do your homework. I created a huge back story for her. Why would someone who lives a privileged life in the Capitol be fleeing to a District 13 that may or may not exist
How true is the movie to the books?
Unfortunately, you will see that many of your secondary characters were cut out for time purposes in the movie. I suppose that is to keep from having a five-hour-long movie. That being said, the themes are ever-present, and I can’t stress this enough – it is not a story about Team Gale or Team Peeta. This is not “Twilight.” You can’t compare the two. They are apples and oranges.
