For the new issue of V Magazine, Drew Barrymore photographed seven Hollywood up-and-comers, including The Hunger Games’ own Isabelle Fuhrman and Amandla Stenberg. In the accompanying interviews, the actresses talk about their careers as well as their roles in The Hunger Games.
To moviegoers around the world, the character Clove in The Hunger Games is a vengeful teenage assassin. But to Isabelle Fuhrman, the actress who played her, the character is more nuanced. “In my mind, Clove was never an assassin,” she says. “I imagined her as having a very tragic life with specific moments that drove her to become, for lack of a better word, crazy.”
Amandla: “When my agent called to tell me I was going to play Rue, I literally started running around the room and hyperventilating. I kept shouting, ‘I’m Rue, I’m Rue!’” she remembers. “My mother had to get me a glass of water and tell me to take deep breaths. We have it all on tape. It’s funny to watch.”
