Jack Quaid was brilliant as Marvel in The Hunger Games, and he happened perchance upon a book signing as fans waited for the three stars in Union Square–
Have you been noticed more in public now that you’ve been in a movie?
No, except for this one time when…I don’t know what random turn of events led to this but…I was walking through Union Square and there happened to be a book signing for the three leads of the movie. They were at Barnes and Noble and I walked by this line of people that was going down the block and I was like, “What is this?” And they all started to recognize me.
And then you ran away?
No, I actually stayed. I signed some stuff and took a few photos and then I was like, “I’ve got to go take a test.” And I left, but that’s been like the only time and that’s fine. I’m fine with not being recognized. It’s actually better if I’m not.
Jack, I can say for sure that your tests are more important than your fans, so stay strong.

Vanity Fair did a piece on the young cast of The Hunger Games, including a new picture! The article includes a description of the actor, the character, and on how they landed their respective roles in the movie including Alexander Ludwig, Amandla Stenberg, Dayo Okeniyi, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jack Quaid, Jacqueline Emerson, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hembsworth! Here is Jennifer Lawrence’s description:
Hometown: Louisville, Kentucky.
Her role: Katniss Everdeen, District 12 tribute—the protagonist and narrator, Katniss took her sister Prim’s place in the Hunger Games, and is known for her fiery temper and strong archery skills. After her father passed away in a mine explosion, Katniss became the provider and nurturer for her family. She’s also caught in a love triangle between Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth).
On landing the part:“I auditioned, which was a long process and a lot of improv. And then waited a month or something, where I was convinced I didn’t have it—then I got the phone call while I was in London. I was then terrified. I knew it was going to be huge, and that’s scary. I called my mom. She said, ‘This is a script that you love, and you’re thinking about not doing it because of the size of it?’ And I [didn’t] want to not do something because I’m scared, so I said yes. And I’m so happy that I did.”
