“I T ’ S H E A V Y MA­TE­RIAL…”

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 2 -

Ev­ery­one talks about how phys­i­cally gru­elling these movies are. But are there mo­ments which are psy­cho­log­i­cally gru­elling too?

I had to think about be­ing tor­tured, and imag­ine what that’s like, which is not fun to even imag­ine, let alone have hap­pen to you. But it’s not like I held onto it. It’s heavy ma­te­rial but at the same time I’m with these guys so I can’t be se­ri­ous when they say cut.

What’s your most mem­o­rable fan en­counter?

I had some­one in Spain who came up to me – I don’t speak very much Span­ish, and she didn’t speak very much English – and she was try­ing to ex­plain to me some­thing about The Hunger Games. She said “Look!” She pulled up [ her top]… I was like “Oh my god!” Real Or Not Real was tat­tooed on ei­ther side. I was like oh boy, I ap­plaud you for com­mit­ment. How­ever I’m happy it’s not my face.

Did you keep a sou­venir from the movies?

I kept a lit­tle locket I gave to Kat­niss. Nick Setch­field
