A few weeks ago CNN iReport asked fans to submit their Hunger Games questions for Liam Hemsworth, Amandla Stenberg, Dayo Okeniyi, Leven Rambin and Jack Quaid. Check out the resulting interview with the fan video questions that CNN selected.
Leven Rambin (Glimmer) is featured in the April issue of Maxim magazine! Here’s part of her interview with Maxim!
The Hunger Games is about attractive teens fighting to the death on live TV. Is this going to be the next Twilight?
It’s a lot more stimulating. Everything is high-stakes, and it’s a lot darker.
Tell us about your role.
I play Glimmer, one of the competitors. She has this crazy sexuality that she tries to manipulate people with, but once she gets into the arena she’s a
vicious killing machine.
You and Jennifer Lawrence have some intense catfights!
Filming it was funny—chasing her and screaming that I’m gonna slit her throat! It was way more interesting to play a maniacal character than one that’s similar to me.

Part 4 of the Hunger Games red carpet premiere interviews by E! Online!
The District 3 actress loves the following “The Hunger Games” film has received. Hear her reaction to the fans camped outside of the premiere.
Leven Rambin (Glimmer), Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Jacqueline Emerson (Foxface) and Isabelle Fuhrman (Clove) are featured in this months issue of Nylon Magazine!
“If every era demands its post-apocalyptic saga,” writes Diane Vadino in this month’s issue, “Then The Hunger Games is ours.” And after years of vampires, werewolves, and wizards, it might also be something of a relief. The books and forthcoming movie don’t depend on supernatural elements and born-this-way magicians to save the world. Instead, it puts real kids in a terrifying but maybe not so unbelievable future America, one where a destroyed nation is ruled by a despotic Capital City, and human sacrifices – twenty-four kids a year – are demanded by the citizens, and devoured by each other on live TV.
You probably know the rest of the story (and if you don’t, we recommend zooming through the addictive books this weekend). But you may not know the actresses playing four of our favorite tributes – Glimmer (Leven Rambin), Rue (Amandla Stenberg), Clove (Isabelle Fuhrman), and Foxface (Jackie Emerson).
Pick up this month’s issue to read their stories!

During some of their downtime from filming The Hungers Games in North Carolina last summer, some of the cast enjoyed flying through the trees at Navitat Canopy Adventures on their zip line! Plus they are teaming up with US Weekly on a sweepstakes “Win A Trip to Asheville”!
ASHEVILLE N.C. – When their characters weren’t fighting for their lives in the outdoor arena staged in the rugged terrain of western North Carolina, many of the cast of the upcoming movie “The Hunger Games” spent some of their downtime flying through the trees at NAVITAT CANOPY ADVENTURES.
The world-class zip line canopy tour located just 20 minutes north of downtown Asheville hosted at least seven of the young stars while they were on location in the area last summer shooting the highly anticipated motion picture opening on March 23.
“We are so excited that so many of ‘The Hunger Games’ cast and crew visited us while they were in the area last summer,” said Abby Burt, Branding & Marketing Leader at NAVITAT, which opens March 31 for the 2012 season.
“We were thrilled to show them the beauty and excitement of our course, and can’t wait to see how the movie showcases the natural beauty of western North Carolina.
Taking the tour were Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta, one of the movie’s lead characters, and Leven Rambin, Jacqueline Emerson, Alexander Ludwig, Dayo Okeniyi, Jack Quaid and Ian Nelson, who play some of Peeta’s competitors known as the Tributes in “The Hunger Games.” Hutcherson liked the experience so much he returned twice more during his stay in Asheville for tours, including the exclusive NAVITAT AT NIGHT tour.
More on the sweepstake and Navitat after the break!
