Jeffrey Wright Talks About Why He Loves ‘The Hunger Games’


Jeffrey Wright (Beetee) recently did a Reddit AMA and talked about why he loves The Hunger Games so much and a few other topics!

How awesome is Jennifer Lawrence really?

She’s really awesome. I have to say, as awesome as you might imagine. The brilliant, vibrant, upbeat and original personality. Working with her is a choice between focusing and laughing yourself into hysterics.

Hi there, I was wondering if you’ve read the whole Hunger Games series (and if so, your thoughts)? Or what best helped you get a sense of the type of person Beetee is and how to portray him? Thanks!

Yes, of course I’ve read the whole of the Hunger Games series. I think it would have been foolish not to, considering all of the wonderful detail and background story that they contain. They represent the whole cosmology of these character and habits. If I was going to be able to flesh out my character, I needed to know as much as possible, so I went there to discover that. There’s a lot there, but I think that Suzanne Collins tapped into something very much within the moment that we find ourselves in. On set, we’re continually amazed at the way in which the world outside the set is reflected within the world we’re trying to recreate from her books. The books and movies are directed towards young minds, which make them all the more exciting. This moment recently in Thailand, where protesters were throwing up the Hunger Games hand sign in the streets, was just kind of mind boggling and odd in the best way, and only indicative of Suzanne’s stories and ideas, and of these movies we’re all a part of.

Thanks for bringing life to your character in Mockingjay, and so brilliantly! What is/was your favourite part of working on Mockingjay?

My favorite part of working on Mockingjay, that’s kind of an easy question. My favorite part was working with all of the other actors and Francis Lawrence, our director. And being on set with the crew; the atmosphere and the feeling that was created is a combo of hard work and good focus.

Do you think the message in Hunger Games is actual for nowadays’ world?

I think so, and it seems to me that I’m not alone in that, because the popularity of the stories would suggest that. I think the stories are relevant, not only in a way that’s relevant to our time, but I think there’s a kind of universal humanity that touches people that is timeless. Katniss, who is the focal point of this story, is a classically mythic figure, who undertakes these extraordinary adventures and who faces these phenomenal challenges, only to really make her way back home and back to the things that are granular and that are most dear to her and most intimate for her. We all understand that and we all get how meaningful that is.

Sam Claflin Talks About Playing Finnick And Working With Jennifer Lawrence With YourTango

In a new interview with YourTango, Sam Claflin talks about playing Finnick and working with Jennifer Lawrence! Sam is such a great guy!

sam claflin Hunger

YourTango: Let’s talk about Finnick in The Hunger Games. How are the last two sequels going these days? What can we expect?
Sam Claflin:
 We’re halfway done filming, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. It doesn’t feel like a big franchise movie, but more of an intimate piece for me.

YourTango: Did it hurt your feelings at first when fans didn’t react well to your casting as Finnick? Then the movie came out and they loved you.
Sam Claflin:
 There was a fair bit of negative reaction when I was cast. I embraced that as a challenge. It seems to have gone down okay. I remember reading a blog with a list of names that should be playing Finnick. In 500 posts, my name wasn’t one of them. So it was very scary stepping into those shoes.

YourTango: What have you learned about Finnick with the last two films?
Sam Claflin:
 When we saw him in the last movie, he was in a very dark place. For me, it was a great opportunity to start him at the bottom and then build up his strength and confidence. That’s an incredible journey.

YourTango: What’s it like to work with Jennifer Lawrence?
Sam Claflin:
 Finnick has been the scariest character for me because there was a lot of pressure on my shoulders. You meet Jennifer Lawrence and she’s such a nice girl. I’m thinking I need to be really cool. So I’m trying to think of a really good joke and be ready for action. Jennifer, she could literally be telling you a joke and then switch on the tears for a scene. Me? I need to be quiet and then come the tears.
