Jack Quaid, currently a Sophomore at NYU, tells his school’s newspaper about his experience filming The Hunger Games and playing Marvel.
How does it feel to be on the big screen?
It’s a little weird. Seeing myself on the big screen for the first time is like…I don’t know. I found myself…It was very hard to actually pay attention to the story because I was just kind of looking at the aesthetics of myself rather than my performance. I was like, “Ah, how do I look in this shot?” And as the movie went on, I was like, “Okay, now it’s time for the story; I can actually enjoy this.” But like seeing yourself at least for the first shot, you’re just worried about how you appear to the outside world, just because I knew this movie would be seen by everybody. It was a lot of pressure.
Do you think you’d survive the Hunger Games?

Interview Magazine talked with Willow Shields about the pressure of living up to the book, the heavy emotions in her scenes, her audition process, and working with the cast of The Hunger Games.
SYMONDS: It’s such a huge property at this point. Do you think that there was more pressure with this role than there would be with a regular role, to live up to what people had been thinking about?
SHIELDS: Definitely, especially because it’s such a huge movie and it’s a pretty important character, for me, in the book, so at first I was a little nervous not being able to become the character. Yeah, at first I was nervous.
SYMONDS: I don’t want to give anything away, the times when you are onscreen in this film are all super emotional. You’re kind of dialed up to 10, all the time, in each of your scenes. How did you prepare for that? Continue reading
