Amandla Stenberg Talks Suzanne Collins and Prepping for Her Role as Rue

Amandla Stenberg Talks Suzanne Collins and Prepping for Her Role as Rue

Publisher’s Weekly writer Karen Springen sat down with 13-year-old Amandla Stenberg to have speaks about her character, meeting Suzanne Collins, and her thoughts about the cast and movie.

(Keep your wits about you – Potential Spoilers Ahead!)

Was Rue your favorite character when you were reading?

Rue and Foxface were my favorite characters, probably because they’re not necessarily bad. I loved Rue because of how musical and sweet she is. Now that I’ve read the book a few times, I actually like the character Clove a lot. She’s very skilled with how she can throw knives. And everyone loves Katniss!

What did you do to get into character and make yourself feel like Rue?

For my audition, I went to Gary’s house. To get prepared, I dressed up like Rue. I wore khakis and a T-shirt, and my mom had rolled around my clothes in the dirt before. And we put twigs in my hair and leaves all over me, and stains were all over my clothes. And I had a little wreath of flowers in my pocket that I thought Rue might have. That was in my pocket as good luck, and also a special rock. Those were my little tokens I thought Rue would have.

She was there for two days in the middle of shooting. It was so amazing to meet her – the creator of all this. We were doing a very traumatic scene, and I was kind of bawling my eyes out. I wasn’t quite sure if this was how Suzanne Collins imagined the scene. And so I talked to her, and she told me just that Rue was trying to be very strong for Katniss. She wanted Katniss to go on, so she tried to be very brave for Katniss. That was very helpful.

Did Suzanne know you were a huge Hunger Games fan before you were cast?

Yes, I told her how much I loved her writing! I’m so glad I had the honor of meeting her. She was very sweet and wrote a note in my book thanking me for my work in the movie. A lot of the other cast members signed it as well. We were signing each other’s copies like yearbooks.

How do you think fans will feel about the film?

I think fans will be very, very pleased with the movie. I know from what I’ve shot and from what I’ve seen, it really stays true to what I thought of the book. It really embodies the feel of the book, and it keeps what is really important in the book about Katniss’s emotions and her survival. That’s really important. They did a fantastic job bringing that to life. Everyone involved is very concerned that the fans are happy with it and that they enjoy it.

I love this girl! She’s so mature and sweet, and has such enthusiasm for her character and the “Hunger Games” series…

Which is only going to make Rue’s death scene that much harder to watch. –sigh-

Who else is going to be stocking up on Kleenex the next few months to prepare for this movie?

New Vanity Fair Picture of Young Cast of The’ Hunger Games’!

JENNIFER LAWRENCE
Age:
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.”

Lionsgate Releases New Synopsis of The Hunger Games

Lionsgate Releases New Synopsis of The Hunger Games

 woody harrelson the capitol pn rue peeta mellark lionsgate liam hemsworth lenny kravitz katniss everdeen josh hutcherson jennifer lawrence hunger games poster hunger games news gary ross gale hawthorne elizabeth banks effie trinket cinna    Lionsgate Releases New Synopsis of The Hunger Games   Hunger Games Poster HQ2 300x444Well yesterday was a big day with the release of the 8 character posters for The Hunger Games. Today Lionsgate has also released a new synopsis of the movie itself. Take a look if you need a refresher! As well don’t forget to register at www.thecapitol.pn to be assigned a district and receive the latest news from The Capitol in anticipation of the 74th Hunger Games.

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 12 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following. It has spent more than 157 consecutive weeks/more than three consecutive years to date on The New York Times bestseller list since its publication in September 2008, and has also appeared consistently on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.

Thanks Lionsgate!
