PROMO GIRL: AMANDLA SIGNS HUNGER GAMES DVD FOR FANS
Amandla Stenberg, who played character `Rue` in movie The Hunger Games, signed DVD and Blue Ray copies of the film at an exclusive event in New York on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2012. Fans lined up in Times Square to meet the budding star.
Thehob.org got a chance to steal Amandla away for a few minutes to talk to her about “The Hunger Games,” the upcoming sequel “Catching Fire”, and more. Check out the highlights below:
On how many times she has read book, Hunger Games:
I’ve read it five times. I know the book inside and out.
On looking forward to seeing Rue’s family in movie Catching Fire:
Amandla: I’m definitely excited to see that. That’d be fun to see. Definitely. To see little Rue’s brothers and sisters.
On asking author Suzanne Collins about Rue:
Yeah, I talked to her about the character. She came to set around the death scene, and I asked her about Rue and I asked her “is this how you imagined the scene?” And she was like “yes, exactly, it’s perfect.” And it was just so great to hear that. And then I also talked to her about Rue in that scene. And she told me, you know, Rue is feeling like although she didn’t want to die and she’s terrified, she also tried to be brave for Katniss because she wants Katniss to have hope and go on and win the Games. And so yeah, we talked about that.
