E! Online spoke with Jena Malone and asked her about joining the cast of Catching Fire as Johanna.
“I’m super excited,” Malone exclusively told us at last night’s Beverly Hills party for Dannijo & Tucker Tea. “It’s going to be amazing.”
But she’s not rushing things.
“We’re getting there,” she said when asked if she’s met with director Francis Lawrence.
As for preparing for her role, she said, “One step at a time.”
One thing Malone doesn’t need to do is read the Hunger Games novels—she’s already done that.
“I read the whole series over a weekend when I had a wisdom tooth out,” she said. “I was in bed looking for something to read and my little sister recommended it like a year and a half ago, so she was like, ‘You have to read it! You have to read it!’ And so I’m glad I finally did and I loved it.”
We love hearing she was already a fan of the series! Cannot wait to hear more from Jena!
